The backdrop for an extraordinary life...
Spectacularly immersive bay views await at 6823 Buckingham, a 4+BD/3.5BA, 4741 sq ft custom Contemporary sitting atop the Claremont Hills amid natural beauty, surrounded by rare level outdoor areas, with sweeping views akin to those of the neighboring $20+M “Felton Estate” (sold in 2015). A masterpiece of light and space, uniquely accommodating for the physically challenged, the home features a flexible floor plan with high ceilings, expansive rooms, banks of tall windows, wide hallways, and generous bonus spaces. Elegant common areas include formal living and dining rooms overlooking the four-bridge view and a superb chef’s kitchen flowing into the spacious family room and breakfast nook enclosed by panels of glass. Expansive multi-level decks are perfect for entertaining or for private appreciation of the outdoors. Designed for privacy, the home’s main floor is level-in and includes a spacious guest suite with a luxurious bath (with an ADA-compliant shower) and a second bedroom or potential office. Downstairs, the enormous primary suite is a sophisticated retreat with a separate sitting area, patio access, and a suite of dressing rooms and dual walk-in closets with built-ins and a motorized hanging clothes trolley. The adjoining opulent spa-like bath features radiant heat, a jetted tub with an amazing view, and a relaxing steam shower with multiple showerheads. Also on this level is a second guest or au pair suite, a family room with a wall of built-in shelving (a simple wall addition might make this a third bedroom on the lower level), and an expansive bonus room that might serve as a recreation/media room, home office, studio, or wine storage area. In its beautiful hillside setting, the home is just 12 miles from San Francisco and moments from miles of regional parks and the world-class amenities of the East Bay, accessible in multiple directions.
Situated on the city limits of both Oakland and Berkeley, Claremont Hills offers residents gorgeous panoramic views of the city. The convenient location is just minutes away from the freeway, but commuters can also utilize BART for transportation.
The neighborhood – made up of multi-million dollar homes – has no shortage of social opportunities. Just on the edge of Claremont Hills lies the Highlands Country Club. The club offers its members a tennis court, swimming pool, spa, sauna, fitness room, and it even has a play structure and youth room for the little ones. Members can even chat over coffee and tea in an adult-only lounge known as the “Spyglass Room.” The Claremont Club and Spa at the Fairmont Hotel also awaits on the outskirts of Claremont Hills. This club invites members to experience wellness and luxury at their award-winning resort.
Also nearby is the Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve where park-goers can partake in hiking and equestrian. Plus, with the Univerity of California, Berkeley nearby, there’s no shortage of activities, restaurants, museums, and more! And groceries are never too far away with a Safeway less than a 10-minute drive from the neighborhood.
