Every once in a while I come across a special house that I absolutely love. This is that house! Enter 5538 Golden Gate, head up a flight of stairs and you are in the great room. This living room/dining room/kitchen combination is on a grand scale, with high ceilings and stunning amounts of light streaming in from the many windows. The formal dining room is enormous and can easily seat 20. There is a gas-burning fireplace that opens to both the living and dining rooms. The kitchen is lushly appointed with tons of cabinets and counter space. Casual dining can be enjoyed in the kitchen area, or if you prefer al fresco, you can dine off the kitchen on the charming deck. And be sure to see the grand staircase, which features beautiful wrought iron railing. Upstairs you’ll find an open, light-filled media area, a great place to enjoy a movie or read a good book. Additionally, there are 3 bedrooms suites and an office: The large master suite features a huge bath and lovely walk-in closet; the middle suite we are showing as “girl world,” also with tons of light; the rear master suite is directly adjacent to the office area, which leads to the huge outdoor kitchen and patio. With built-in gas grill and bar area, the space cries out “party!” The abundance of closets and storage space combined with high ceilings make this home feel regal indeed. There are peaks of the bay from both levels, and more expansive views off the upstairs deck area, main master and media room. The quality of the finishes throughout is superb. A lot of thought has obviously gone into every detail of the design and layout of the property. Finally, this home is located in a prime Upper Rockridge location. A great commute location, there is easy access to Montclair and Rockridge proper, as well as Highway 24 and the tunnel. With great street presence and curb appeal, this Upper Rockridge retreat is a solid wow. Click here to learn more about this listing.
