Exceptional Claremont Hills Home

9 North Hill Court, Oakland
Offered at: $1,785,000 - Sold

Organic Beauty with Simple Living

Designed by Kelly and Kelly Designs, with input from the sellers, in 2003, this sophisticated home meets the highest standards for beautiful design and comfortable living.

Utilizing the “Golden Rectangle Ratio” principle of design found in nature with clean lines, high ceilings, sweeping open spaces and large southwest-facing windows, skylights,  this sun-filled home is exceptional.  The construction features “rain screen technology”, which is meant to keep water away from the inner layer and allow air flow for moisture evaporation.

Located just minutes above Claremont and College Avenue, Rockridge BART, shops and restaurants, The Claremont Hotel and Spa and freeways, this home is close to anywhere you want to go. 

Situated above the street with panoramic bay and sunset views, the house is also essentially level in from the garage. 

The home is designed and built around a private, eye-catching, level courtyard, with hot tub and natural wooded backdrop. This central courtyard feature exemplifies the principals of the Golden Ratio design.

Panoramic views from both the living room with fireplace, and elegant dining room, featuring architect designed table and furnishings all located on the southwest side of the house invite you to enjoy dramatic SF, Oakland, South Bay sunsets.

The kitchen was designed for the sellers who are both gourmet cooks. Lovely custom cabinets, Sub-Zero fridge, Dacor six burner stove with both gas and electric ovens and the Bosch dishwasher wrap around a significant granite top island, where there is room to dine or visit with your own gourmet chef. This is fabulous for entertaining 

You’ll love the flexible floor plan with three ensuite bedrooms plus bedroom/office with built-ins. Upstairs the front master with walk in closet and Spa-like Travertine appointed bath, has a private deck and stunning panoramic views. A second ensuite master, overlooking the courtyard provides for a more secluded space. The first floor ensuite, currently staged as a family room, opens onto the private courtyard and hot tub. The fourth bedroom currently being used as an office has a large closet and a built-in workstation as well its own Bay view deck.

 Hardwood floors, new carpeting in all bedrooms, custom 8 foot doors, first floor powder room, custom slate, travertine and granite countertops throughout, hand-stacked stone walls in front and back gardens, 2 car garage and additional off street parking, laundry room, wine closet, tons of storage.
