8727 Skyline Blvd, Oakland is a luxurious, custom-built Italianate estate with eye-catching Mediterranean architectural elements, stunning views, and enough “smart” home features to make Einstein proud.
Located along one of Oakland’s most iconic drives, 8727 Skyline Blvd’s street-level elevation belies its spacious splendor. Built in 2008, the split-level designer home is situated in a wooded setting, surrounded by manicured grounds, in the enviable Montclair Hills neighborhood.
An inviting entry beckons you into this singular residence, with its exposed beams, leaded glass double doors and built-in planter boxes for year-round color. Travertine transitions to thick hardwood floors and luxurious carpets throughout, lending this residence a truly “luxe home” feel.
At its core is the large octagonal Great room with exposed beam ceilings, a chiseled marble fireplace—and some of San Francisco Bay’s most stunning views. The inviting open floor is grand—yet functional. Flanked by large windows, the room’s French doors open to a Western-facing upper-tier deck featuring spectacular sunsets.
Built-in shelving provides ample opportunity for books, objets d’art, or collectible showcasing, accented by curved soffits and arches in the home’s upper level, made spectacular with a ‘Color Kinetics’ LED lighting system for delightful effect (currently inoperable).
A spacious chef’s kitchen, with hilltop and Shepherd Canyon vistas, and state of the art fixtures and finishes, features veritable meters of granite counters surrounded with ample storage space. Take your coffee at the island, or make it a proper meal at the kitchen table. A fantastic Family room adjacent to the kitchen keeps the kids close by, as well as a formal dining room for special occasions.
Downstairs, 8727 Skyline’s gorgeous 5 bedrooms (one perfect for a home office) feature plush carpeting, built-in shelving, curvy soffits, plenty of closet space, comfort and privacy. All have outdoor and patio access through French doors. Surrounded by these bedrooms lies another cozy Family room with a crafty staircase leading back up. There are three full accommodating bathrooms.
The primary suite sits below the Great room, mirroring its octagon shape--with Bay views. A cozy fireplace and elevated jacuzzi tub (with a natural privacy screen) adds a spa-like vibe to this sizable room with direct outdoor access.
Situated on a ~ ¼ acre downslope; the 2-story home sits among a manicured level lawn, perfect for a game of croquet—complete with English gardens and mature landscaping. In close proximity to East Bay green spaces, cycling, hiking, and horseback riding, 8727 Skyline is a mere six minutes by car from Highway 24 and Montclair village, and 20-minutes from downtown SF.
