168 Cross Road was transformed into a modern Upper Rockridge escape in 2014. The contemporary entryway leads to a tranquil courtyard landscaped with native species and provides a lovely oasis to enjoy morning coffee and outdoor dining.
Floor-to-ceiling windows cascade natural light from the courtyard into the main floor. The open floor plan provides a spacious calm environment and wraps around the courtyard to enhance indoor-outdoor living. High slanted ceilings are reminiscent of the home’s mid-century modern design. White oak floors, which were refinished in August 2022, span the entire main level and compliment the elegant, bright kitchen. The home has high-end fixtures and appliances, including a Poulsen pendant light over the dining area and Miele double ovens and stovetop. The radiant heating system in the ceiling contributes to this contemporary living at its finest.
The expansive primary suite is on the main level and offers more abundant natural light. The attached bathroom features a dual vanity and a large walk-in rain shower beneath a skylight. The MGS stainless steel fixtures merge Italian luxury and style with Swiss simplicity. Also on this level is a second bedroom and full bathroom.
The lower level incorporates modern elements such as polished concrete floors and a stylish free-standing bathtub. The third bedroom and full bathroom are on this level, as well as a versatile space for laundry, storage or an office. A detached two-car garage provides parking on the upper level and plenty of storage below.
This home is located in the top-rated Hillcrest school district, grades K-8, with quick access to Highway 13, Highway 24, Rockridge BART station, and the excellent dining and shopping options on College Avenue. The neighborhood’s Village Market and Terrace Coffee are a short distance, as are local parks and beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay.
Upper Rockridge is a neighborhood of older, Mediterranean-style estates, midcentury modern homes, contemporary houses, and new, custom showplaces. Large lawns, terraced gardens, stunning views of the bay and San Francisco skyline, and roads that follow the rolling hills all define this affluent Oakland community.
A local grocery, the Village Market, serves the neighborhood, while more extensive shopping and dining options await in nearby Rockridge, where residents can commute to San Francisco via the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station.
