East Bay Craftsman Shines in SF Chronicle
August 18, 2016
Twice a week, The Chronicle features a home on the market that caught our eye for its architecture, history or character.
Location, prestige and luxury — this freshly built four-bedroom combines it all. Known as the “East Bay Idea House,” the four-story contemporary marries the efforts and influence of Landmark Development Corp., Robert Nebolon Architects, Geremia Design and DFI Properties with Sunset magazine. The ultra-modern concept merges energy-efficient features with a complementary color palette of burgundy, green and cream. From its perch in the Claremont Hills, the home’s five decks overlook San Francisco Bay and a terraced landscape designed by Michelle Derviss. An artist’s studio, game room and wine cellar lend additional functionality. Wide-plank white oak flooring and floor-to-ceiling windows fashion a bright, welcoming interior. Blackout curtains establish the media room as premier spot for taking in a movie. Tours are available Sept. 16 to 18 and 23 to 25. Tickets are $26. See www.eastbayidea.com for details.
