Mid-century architecture at its best! 5560 Country Club Drive affords great privacy, level living, quiet radiant heat, easy commutes, plenty of light throughout the day, and calming borrowed views of the Claremont Country Club golf course.
The home radiates out from the light-drenched vaulted central living room--two bedrooms and two baths in one wing; the kitchen (with breakfast nook) and two-car garage in the other wing. Behind the living room itself is a large private den with half bath and built in wardrobe, perfect for guests.
The combination of boomerang shape and corner lot location creates several large and private courtyards and patios, each with floor-to-ceiling windows. Organize cocktail parties that spill out of the living room onto the patios on either side! Or relax in the living room, fireplace to the side, facing the southerly bank of windows, oblivious to life's hub bub.
A more convenient location would be hard to find! Because you're just two blocks from the upscale Village Market, Broadway Terrace Nursery, and Terrace Cafe and Gifts, grabbing dinner or a gallon of milk on the way home (or a latte on the way to work!) is a breeze. College Avenue's shops and restaurants start just over a half mile down the slope, anchored by the California College of the Arts. A Wi-Fi equipped express bus to San Francisco's financial district stops right around the corner. Route 13 is just up the hill, and there are no more exits before the Caldecott Tunnel. Continue north a half mile and drop down into Berkeley at the Claremont Hotel, or loop west on Route 24 to Emeryville, Oakland and San Francisco beyond. The home is in the highly coveted Hillcrest School catchment area (check with OUSD for availability).
