Beyond the hillsides, trees and rooftops that lie below its quiet cul-de-sac, this handsome 1994 town home commands a sweeping panorama of the cities, bridges and waters of San Francisco Bay. Sequestered just steps behind and below its garage, the broad eastern patio entrance invites morning sunshine and outdoor dining off both the eat-in kitchen and formal dining room. From the patio, the front door frames the dazzling view from the wide, light-filled living room, where the dramatic fireplace, wall of bookcases and broad front terrace anchor the soaring ceiling and western window wall. Down the central staircase, the two bedroom plan includes the deep master suite with deck, dressing area and generous bathroom and the second view bedroom, hall bathroom and convenient laundry room.

A short drive down Tunnel Road lie the many pleasures of the rich and lively neighborhoods that flank the Berkeley/Oakland border. Straddling that border, the Claremont neighborhood features lush landscaping, curving streets that hug the canyon hills, and open space. The landmark of this area is the majestic Claremont Hotel Club & Spa, a vast edifice perched on twenty-two acres at the foot of the Claremont Hills. Three outdoor pools, two tennis courts, a full-service spa, a fitness club, and three onsite restaurants deliver stunning views, and the resort has become popular with generations of locals as a luxurious getaway. The Elmwood shopping district on College Avenue in Berkeley offers old-fashioned shopping - bookshops, a movie theater, bakeries, flower stands - and restaurants large and small. Just south of Elmwood, Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood features comparable shopping and dining treasures, all anchored by the Rockridge BART station. Further north in Berkeley, the UC campus and the downtown Berkeley Arts District provide a cultural and intellectual playground, while the Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve, 208 acres of open space managed by the East Bay Regional Park District, and the 200+ acres outside of the canyon owned by the University of California reward ambitious hikers with panoramic views of San Francisco Bay.
