Architecturally Designed Home w/ Sweeping Bay Views

3 Beds      3.5 Baths      Panoramic Bay Views      Bonus Office/Studio     

357 Gravatt Dr. Berkeley CA 94705

Leave your troubles, stress, & worries behind and head for the hills…of Berkeley.  As you traverse your way up the tree lined streets making way toward your new home, serenity will wash over as the wind blows in your hair.

This striking contemporary is an architectural gem perched in the hills, situated for picturesque views of the bay from almost every room! Arriving at your exquisite home, park in your driveway or pull in to your garage, a rare commodity in the hills. Step out and enter your front gate, and become immediately enamored with the landscaping that leads down to your front door. Pause to smell the fragrant flowers, pick fruit from your trees, or catch a quick glimpse of the sun shining off the bay below.

Below the garage is a bonus space/office with a half bath, perfectly positioned for an artist’s studio, potential In-law unit, or zoom room.  The front courtyard’s fountain is not only a striking visual, but continues to deliver the calming energy of the home with the sounds of flowing water.

As you enter the home, you are greeted by cascading and abundant sunshine upon your face, and striking views of the hills and the Bay seen directly through your wall of windows. The great room is glorious with soaring ceilings, and is the perfect centerpiece for relaxing and entertaining. You’re surrounded by windows seemingly bringing the outside in, creating a surreal environment inside.  Light wood floors radiate throughout and carry you along through the home.  Off the living room is an expansive deck, once again providing another magnificent vantage point as you take in the panoramic Bay and city views.

Adjacent to the living room is the kitchen, aesthetically pleasing with luminous subway tile, impressive gray counters, and stainless-steel appliances. Windows in the kitchen give additional sun and viewpoints of the gleaming bay below.  Your kitchen is ideally placed, ready for you to whip up tantalizing meals to be eaten alfresco in your front landscape patio, or taken onto the spacious and airy deck, to dine in the warm bay breeze.

Strolling down the hallway, take notice of the craftmanship of built-in shelves, awaiting your photos, books, and memories. On down the hall is the primary bedroom, generous proportions allow for a built-in desk and access to the patio, capturing more views of the hillside and bay.  An en-suite bathroom with skylight to keep the natural light glowing, rounds out this fantastic suite.

There is a substantial guest bedroom room, as well as a guest bathroom on this level.  Topping off the amenities on the main level is the laundry room with a set of French doors to access the patio and heart shaped hot tub. Take the stairs down to the lower level, perfectly set for entertaining.  This area opens immediately to a superb deck with views of the bay bridge and water below. To top off the lower level is a second kitchen downstairs, full bathroom and large bedroom.  This is a wonderful place for your au-pair, visiting family, or simply an additional area to wow your guests!

If you love breathtaking panoramic views (Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge, San Rafael bridge SF skyline, Mt Tamalpias, angel island, Alcatraz, Sausalito, San Mateo, & Marin), natural light, privacy, tranquility and more, then 357 Gravatt is the home for you!
