Shortly after fire ravaged the Oakland hills in 1991, the neighborhood of Hiller Highlands rose from the ashes with Highway 24 forming the southern border. The collection of single-family homes and town houses is a popular neighborhood for middle-aged couples and empty nesters.
One of the units for sale in this development is 16 Treasure Hill, a two-bedroom, 2 1/2-bathroom town house with high ceilings in its public rooms, a two-car garage, multiple skylights, a sauna and a front deck offering outdoor space. The neighborhood, which is served by a homeowners association, includes a clubhouse, pool and tennis courts.
At its open home Sunday, Dickson said, she's focusing on the location of the home as well as the individual charms of its layout. The public rooms are located on the main level, while the bedrooms and sauna reside on the lower floor.
The garage opens directly into the home, offering a level entry, Dickson said.
Though the kitchen dates to the listing's 1993 construction, it includes stainless steel appliances, dual ovens and a decorative tile backsplash. Skylights are scattered about the main level, welcoming natural light into the spacious entertainment areas.
A sloped, beamed ceiling above the dining area and living room reach as high as 14 feet and complement the maple stain of the hardwood floors throughout the town house. A mantel with built-in shelving and storage surrounds the gas fireplace in the living room, which is elevated and includes tile and stone accents.
A two-tiered deck in front provides a way in through both the main entry door and a glass door near the kitchen. A bistro table easily fits inside the space, offering a chance for al fresco dining with friends and family.
