THE WALLY BAR
The open layout, with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, shimmers with clever rectangles of light that spill in from the wall of windows overlooking the deck. This great space is ideal for both entertaining and spending a quiet night at home. High end finishes are everywhere, including the Italian kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, a 48″ Chef Stove, a seated bar that allows for dual interaction, a water mist fireplace, and a 16 ft glass slider that opens to the deck, creating the classic seamless indoor/outdoor feel sought by all architecture greats.
The generous floorplan showcases 5 spacious bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, each with luxurious additions, a wine cellar, and a ground level entertainment room. The attached guest house, complete with its own address and utilities meter, is perfectly suited to host friends and family or to be used as an income property.
High above the San Leandro Reservoir on the edge of Reinhardt Redwood Regional Park lies the coveted community of the Skyline-Hillcrest Estates. The area is famous in architectural circles for attracting the biggest names in mid-century and modern design. The idea behind the homes dotting Skyline Blvd was always to create highly livable spaces that interacted with the landscape around them, accentuating light and balancing the human spirit’s yearning for both freedom and rest.
13555 Skyline Blvd is the latest of these architectural masterpieces to grace Hillcrest Estates. The formerly rugged and unwalkable 1.13-acre lot was first carefully redesigned to open new possibilities of movement, while retaining the secluded wooded oasis feel of this nearly 4,600 sq. ft. contemporary style farmhouse complete with guest quarters and private gated entrance. Amid the conifers, the lot is open and bright, pristinely manicured, with nooks for outdoor entertaining throughout. Walk the steps up to the steepled porch and enter a home masterfully designed to resonate with what worked for past architectural masters—light, space, impeccable detail—while creating a home for the 21st century.
The farmhouse itself was designed with modern values in mind. 13555 Skyline features over 60 solar lights and an electric car charging station to keep the home as environmentally conscious as it is technologically advanced. Equipped with Cat 6 ethernet, Ring WiFi doorbells, Ring WiFi security cameras, and WiFi controlled garage motor, smart light switches, sprinkler controller, and dishwasher all work in concert at the touch of a button. Plus, with radiant bathroom floor heating, bluetooth bathroom fan and bluetooth electronic door locks, every inch of the home is prepared to provide comfort and security.
Your private oasis in the trees, 13555 Skyline offers a multiplicity of outdoor entertaining spaces, from the deck that feels perched in the pines, to the manicured lawn, to the outdoor firepit terrace, to the separate dining patio surrounded by grass. The farmhouse feel extends out from the property, as Equestrians will enjoy the option for horses on premises. A premiere golf course and tennis courts are just step away at HillCrest’s exclusive Sequoyah Country Club.
Newly listed at $2,799,000, 13555 Skyline was built for the discerning, tasteful 21st Century outdoors person, someone who feels at home in nature while still enjoying the connectivity of technology. It’s a home that welcomes, it’s a home for keeps. See for yourself by taking a virtual tour at https://www.13555skylineblvd.com .
