13180 Skyline Boulevard Oakland, California 94619

SOLD $1,477,000 (list price $995,000)

This updated contemporary-style four bedroom/three bath home, sited on almost an acre lot, could be considered the essence of an urban retreat. Set back off the road and barely visible from the street, this home has the feel of a refuge from the hustle-and-bustle. of daily life.

The recent updating helps freshen-up this late 1950’s one-family owned home to give it a more 21st century contemporary feeling. The clean lines and minimalistic architectural style that characterize a contemporary home give it a feeling of something special. The floor-to-ceiling and transom windows help provide this home with plenty of natural light. The open floor plan enhances the indoor/outdoor flow for entertaining both inside and out in this bucolic setting.

The kitchen and both upstairs bathrooms have been newly updated and reflect the minimalistic character of the home. The new kitchen and bathroom skylights help provide additional light to these areas. Cosmetic improvements include refinished hardwood floors, new downstairs carpeting and new paint inside and out. Welcome to the antidote to city life.
