5685 Skyline Blvd
Utilizing sophisticated building performance technologies, a roof-mounted photo voltaic solar system and state-of-the-art computer energy modeling, Scott O'Hara Construction and Eco Performance Builders have engineered a home that will produce as much energy as it will use. So confident are the builders in their design and installation, they will pay for any power usage fees the buyers may incur for three years. That's right, 3 years!
But this is about much more than a net zero rating; it's about a philosophy. One that holds that our homes should be comfortable, healthy, efficient and durable. 5685 Skyline Boulevard is all of that and much, much more...
With beautifully framed Bay and San Francisco views from nearly every room, this brand new four bedroom, three and a half bath custom contemporary exemplifies drama and elegance. Offering a sophisticated open plan accented by soaring ceilings and walls of glass, the airy great-room design provides an ease of flow within the interior spaces, and between indoors and out.
The main level is defined by a lofty entry, dramatic living room, dining area and spectacular chef's kitchen. The living room boasts ceilings that slope up to 19', a custom inset ribbon fireplace, double sliding doors to the lovely Brazilian walnut deck and spectacular views. The kitchen features custom rift-cut oak cabinets, quartz countertops, induction cooking, stainless appliances, a pantry and a fabulous natural stone island with prep sink. The dining space floats seamlessly between the kitchen and great-room and provides incredible sunset and city lights views and access to the deck. An en suite bedroom on this level is the ideal space for a guest bedroom or home office. Enjoy morning coffee, a glass of wine or a casual meal on the view deck or on the front patio, private and protected from the on shore breezes.
Downstairs is a cozy family room – an intimate contrast to the voluminous upper rooms - the laundry room and three spacious bedrooms, including the master suite. Overlooking the vistas beyond, the master features a walk-in closet, Brazilian walnut deck and an opulent spa bath with soaking tub, exquisite tile work and beautiful views. The two additional bedrooms share a bath with a double width vanity, decorative tile shower and generous tub.
Set above it all in the Oakland Hills - just minutes to freeways, Rockridge, Regional parks, world class biking and S.F. commute - this home is not only stunning to behold, but promises to be incredibly comfortable, supremely healthy and exceptionally efficient.
