Signature Robert Ratcliff mid-century home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, added bonus studios, and spectacular views of San Francisco, Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. This one of a kind home sits on ¾ acres with flat usable outdoor space, wrap around deck, brand new chef’s kitchen, master bedroom retreat and a two-car garage with interior access. This home can be an entertainer’s paradise with comfortable indoor/outdoor flow. Private and serene, yet close to shopping, dining and other amenities.
The layout provides open air feel throughout the home; from the foyer, through the breezeway, and from every bedroom looking out at the spectacular surroundings. The home features wood floors, vaulted ceilings, superfluous natural light, and crisp sight lines, providing a continuum between the indoor and outdoor world. Classic mid-century picture frame windows adorn nearly every wall, and Post and Beam architecture with white tongue and groove ceiling planks is a commonality throughout the home.
The updated kitchen features stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, designer cabinetry, and an open floorplan which allows for effortless entertaining and views from every window. The three bedrooms downstairs offer ample closet space, and beautiful slanted plank ceilings. Upstairs houses the breathtaking master retreat: with French doors, cathedral ceiling and city views, fireplace, and double length walk in closet with built in shelving. The bathroom offers a glass enclosed shower, soaking tub, and dual vanity with plenty of storage.
In renovating the home, every effort was made in keeping with the original architectural integrity, as the Ratcliff legacy is one that Bay Area residents, homeowners, and homebuyers recognize and respect. Robert Ratcliff utilized classical concepts in his buildings, with organic themes and natural materials to match the landscape for an interior/exterior flow. The Ratcliff Architectural firm is still the oldest, and one of the largest architectural firms in the East Bay.
A must for mid-century lovers!
