A Contemporary Piedmont Manse Marries Eco-Friendly to Modern Materials

By Ramona d’Viola - Columnist – Oakland Magazine

Developer Ben O’Neill was looking to build a home for his own family when he found the “virgin” lot at 53 Cambrian Avenue in a posh Piedmont zip code renown for its schools. The quarter-acre of undeveloped land (almost unheard of in the 21st-Century world of East Bay luxury real estate) became the tableau for an eco-friendly, net-zero energy modern manse – with literal roots in the property.

Looking up from the street, the impressive 4,462 sq. ft. home (designed by Robin Pennell of Oakland’s Jarvis Architects) is a massive, energy-efficient structure with a three-story front elevation. At four bedrooms, three full baths, and two

What Makes a Great Agent?
By David J. Higgins

It’s no secret – East Bay luxury real estate is a red-hot market – with homeowners expecting significant returns on their property investment. Yet, with houses practically selling themselves, one might ask, “Why do I need an agent?”

Well, there’s more to selling a house than just planting a “For Sale” sign in the front yard – it literally takes a “village.”

Our process begins with performing the necessary due diligence – meaning inspections and a thorough understanding of the property’s condition, then, addressing concerns and mitigating the caveats. We rely on a team of highly skilled contractors, engineers, landscape professionals and others, to assist.

Next comes the “choreography.”

You won’t believe why this Crocker Highlands home sold for 36% over asking price

When we listed this stately French Provincial home in late June of 2017, interest was intense as inventory in Crocker Highlands real estate remains predictably low. With its bucolic grounds, classic proportions and traditional appeal, the two-story, three-bedroom home received six bids – with one in cash – before closing in two weeks. In today’s white-hot market, that’s not uncommon, however, what is uncommon was the final selling price of 36% over asking.

This home’s pedigree – and location – already gave it plenty of curb appeal, so we wanted to maximize its sale price. Our extensive pre-sale preparations included hardwood floor restoration, kitchen and eating
