This is a stylish Upper Rockridge home on a well manicured & impressive lot. From the front, a charming brick walkway leads through cheerful landscaping to the home painted in a designer color palette. A lovely scene, the gardens in the front courtyard also grace a stone patio—a perfect spot for chats with a neighbor on lazy weekend days.
Inside, the home joins classic era elements with modernity. Gleaming refinished hardwood floors meet freshly painted walls while white trim adds striking accents. The open front living room features a wood ceiling, windows capturing views of tall trees lining the hillside, and a fireplace for toasty ambience.
This living space flows into the fully updated dining area and kitchen, where copious white cabinetry meets white stone counters and a modern gray tile backsplash. The kitchen’s center island adds counterspace and the stainless appliances, including a Wolf range, equip the family chef. A bottle of cab from the wine fridge and light music on the ceiling-mounted speakers set the mood for a night of tasty cuisine!
For indoor-outdoor flow when barbecuing by day or dining and entertaining under the stars by night, French doors open from the main level to the huge deck. With views and steps to the backyard, this outdoor space is such a treat. Completing the main level is a guest room and full bath.
Upstairs are three generous bedrooms—the two back rooms enjoying peaceful nature views—and an updated full bath with sleek subway tile work, dual sinks across the stone vanity, and a tub for warm soaks after a full day.
Downstairs features a spacious storage room and the guest bedroom room— or it could be a could be family/media room. This space accesses the back patio and yard.
Out back, decks, patios, a flat lawn, a lower-level play structure, and a veritable nature trail through vibrant flora and a bamboo grove come together for this incredible park-like backyard. For dynamic outdoor living, the backyard area is a joy for adults, kids, and furry friends alike.
In the area, the Upper Rockridge location delivers with excellent proximity to both Rockridge and Montclair Village, Temescal Regional Recreation Area. Shopping and dining on Piedmont Avenue only minutes away too. Top-notch public & private Oakland schools are right nearby, as is access to Highway 13 for easy commutes. 4717 Harbord is a beautifully designed home in a top neighborhood.
