Equestrians! Agriculturalists! Grape growers! This level ranch home rests on a fantastic 1.7 acre lot, abutting Chabot Park trails.

Graced with hardwood floors and a vaulted redwood ceiling in the living room. A large dining room looks out over the backyard expanse.

The eat-in kitchen opens out to grand patio and overlooks the gentle upslope lot. Envision a new outdoor kitchen! 

Four bedrooms and two bathrooms are on the entry level. At the end of the hall is the master suite, which would be made magical with the addition of French door or slider out to the rear patio.

Downstairs the family room has a kitchenette, full bathroom and sauna.

Beyond the patio are a three-stall barn, kennels, and pens formerly set up for angora goats; irrigated troughs on hillside; bee boxes; grape vines; fruit trees; and shelters. About two-thirds of the way up the slope Bay views appear. Massive space with many possibilities.

This 1.7 acre parcel is likely not sub-dividable, but is a great candidate to explore the construction of a second dwelling.

Bucolic Hillcrest Estates, with echoes of Oakland's Peralta rancho heritage.


Hillcrest Estates

The Hillcrest Estates neighborhood is small in footprint and population, spanning nearly three miles in length with approximately 250 homes, but its perch on top of the Oakland Hills and surrounding green space make for unparalleled vistas and ample opportunity for recreation. Bordered by the Leona Canyon Regional Open Space and Anthony Chabot Regional Park, the neighborhood was formerly Peralta rancho land and ultimately developed in three sub-divisions throughout the 1950's.  The primary architectural characteristics in the area are large, mostly level ranch-style homes, with minimum one-acre lot sizes.  Broad, dramatic views are common, both of San Francisco Bay and also of the Contra Costa Hills and park spaces.

A wealth of parks and trails are near at hand for picnicking, hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking. Joaquin Miller Park, Redwood Regional Park, and Anthony Chabot Regional Park are replete with picturesque landscapes and challenging walks.

Venture out of the neighborhood and you’ll enter the larger environs of Montclair, with its shops and restaurants; as well as the quaint and trending Laurel District.

Commuting options include Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), casual carpool, and AC Transit bus lines.  For Hillcrest Estates residents, BART can be conveniently accessed at Rockridge, Fruitvale, Oakland Coliseum, and San Leandro stations.
