Perched at the crest of Upper Rockridge rests this expansive 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home with views of the San Francisco skyline, Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, Alcatraz, and Marin. Enhancing the views are 4 balconies, 2 patios, and several skylights that pull light in throughout the day. The home can be entered through the attached 2-car garage or the front door with a grand foyer that opens to a soaring hall ceiling and then to an open floor plan suitable for entertaining and for large households.
This main level boasts a full bathroom as well as a roomy eat-in kitchen and dining area, a bedroom, and a large living room opening to one of the terraced patios. This feels like a natural place to entertain, and guests can admire views from the front living room terrace or rear dining room deck that leads to a landscaped terraced yard and hot tub. The large lot size and terracing provide a sense of distance from rear neighbors, and the garden boasts mature fruit trees and roses.
Upstairs, another mezzanine-style open living area has a second fireplace, a lot of flexible-use space, and another view terrace. The master suite offers generous closet space, another patio and terrace, and an en-suite bathroom with amazing views to take in from the soaking tub. This bathroom also has a separate shower and double vanity. The third full bedroom and bathroom grace this level.
At street level, an attached garage can park two large cars, and the driveway is long enough to handle two more. On the bottom level is another large living area with backyard access, another patio, and a full bedroom and bathroom. The grand living rooms make great spaces for entertaining, while all of the bedrooms feel like their own retreats with great separation of space between the others.
Modern conveniences include a multi-room in-wall speaker system and outdoor speakers; two independent sprinkler systems; an 80-inch wall-mounted flat TV; remote-controlled lights and blinds; and laptop/smartphone control of 6 outdoor cameras, an alarm system, and 2 independent sprinkler systems.
