Fabulous opportunity to live in the sought-after Hiller Highlands community! This enclave of upscale homes is situated in close proximity to commute lanes and to both downtown Oakland and Berkeley, yet exudes an air of serenity. Built in 1994, this light and airy 1956 square foot end unit townhouse has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. With a two car attached garage and private balcony, the home offers the feeling of a detached house. Conveniently sited on a broad flat stretch of Hiller Drive, with easy driveway access and ample street parking for guests, 407 Hiller Drive is just a short walk away from the Highlands Country Club (membership required), with its gym, pool, and tennis courts. Evening strolls down the block include incredible vistas of the bay.
The spacious foyer leads to a dramatic two-story stairwell with windows fitted with plantation shutters. Upstairs, the gracious living room features a vaulted ceiling, recessed lighting, fireplace with gas starter and marble tile surround, and a sliding door to the deck, with panoramic views of surrounding hills. The open floor plan allows a natural flow to the dining area, also with stunning vistas. With a soaring ceiling, both recessed and under-cabinet lighting, maple cabinetry, quartz countertop, skylight, and stainless steel appliances (including Samsung range and microwave, GE Monogram dishwasher, and French door refrigerator), the sleek updated kitchen beckons the most discriminating chef. An inviting tiled powder room is conveniently located next to the public spaces of the home. Also on this level, the master bedroom suite boasts a vaulted ceiling, recessed lighting, marble fireplace with gas log insert, and two large walk-in closets. The airy sky-lit tiled master bathroom has a tub and separate shower with frameless glass door, as well as two sinks.
On the main level are two sunny bedrooms, both affording stellar views, and a full bathroom. The first bedroom, currently used as an office, includes track lighting, while the second bedroom has recessed lighting and mirrored closet doors. The tiled bathroom has a combination tub/shower. Also on this level is a well-located laundry closet as well as a storage area under the stairs.
Additional features of the home include an attached two car garage with interior access (one bay currently houses a workshop and sink but could be restored to its original purpose), central heating and air conditioning, security alarm system, Jatoba Brazil cherry flooring throughout most of the house. Low HOA dues are $580 quarterly (or $193 /month), and include attractive front yard landscaping. 407 Hiller Drive is the ideal choice for the family who seeks turn-key living in a convenient upscale location, with light airy spaces and a classic yet contemporary flair.
