Oakland, CA, USA
6139 Chelton Dr
Storybook home with panoramic view and close to shops, transportation and top schools. Includes a separate parcel that may be buildable? Out of a dream, or a scene from a favorite storybook, the house and gardens at 6139 Chelton take you to a place of peaceful beauty (with a dash of excitement from the spectacular city views). In the heart of the verdant Oakland Hills, with easy access to Montclair Village, Rockridge and Highway 13, this is a place where the urban hum of the city disappears and the property conjures romantic serenity through traditional architecture, lush gardens, and breathtaking views. One of the most striking design statements of this remarkable place is the entrance: a brick staircase leads down from street level, meandering through the thoughtfully planted azaleas, rhododendrons, dogwoods and Japanese maples, creating an intimate oasis of ultimate privacy for the 1938 English Tudor that lies secluded within the beautiful setting.
