Evoking both contemporary style and the casual spirit of California living, this five bedroom, two-and-a-half bath Sequoyah Heights home is a modern version of the Ranch ideal: an open plan with a strong connection between indoor and outdoor spaces, and main living areas that congregate informally off the kitchen. The black-and-white exterior and simple contemporary landscaping add a purposeful pop to the graceful remake of this 1972 home.
Sunlight abounds in the open and airy light-filled living space. New wood floors connect the main level rooms, and oversize windows welcome the sunshine, bringing a luxe, laid-back vibe. The updated kitchen borrows functionality and finishes from contemporary design, but the style incorporates traditional ‘heart of the home’ feel — the open space includes a breakfast nook fit for morning coffee, afternoon homework, and casual meals under windows overlooking the verdant backyard. The thoughtful home design includes two bedrooms on the main level: a cozy smaller bedroom could be repurposed as an office space, while the master suite is a restful retreat. The en suite bath offers room to breathe, with a double sink vanity, walk-in shower, and spacious closet; the bright bedroom is private, while still accessible to the adjacent living area. A half bath, laundry room, and access to the two-car garage complete the first floor.
The light, layout, and functionality of the lower level were carefully considered during the update — the three bedrooms and full bath remain unchanged, offering restful, cozy private space (with generous closets) — while the two (yes, two!) family rooms allow amazing bonus flex space. Relaxed and warm, anchored by a fireplace, the interior family room is ready for movie and game nights. Step through to the second room, open and airy with new light-inviting windows and glass doors creating an easy transition from indoors to out — the room is an elevated take on casual, perfect for indoor-outdoor gatherings.
Some gardens — like some hosts — know how to throw a party. Surrounded by mature trees, this private backyard is filled with conversation spots, play areas and dining patios, inviting family and friends to relax and enjoy a dreamy escape in our beautiful, temperate Bay Area climate.
Sequoyah Heights offers the best of both urban and suburban worlds: a peaceful, friendly neighborhood with a strong sense of community ... just moments from hiking trails in one direction and the highway in the other. Central to the best of the Bay Area, Sequoyah Heights maintains a below-the-radar charm treasured by those who call it home.
