While the refined architectural details of 7257 SKYLINE BLVD are immediately obvious, many of the features and qualities that differentiate it from other homes are not. Meticulous measures were taken to in create a home that is harmony with the environment. Situated between two city-owned lots, the eco-friendly design incorporates exquisite craftsmanship and high-efficiency systems including radiant heat, passive solar and judicious use of natural materials. Great residential design should not shout at you; it should be in service to the owners’ needs and comfort, and elicit feelings of warmth and serenity. The sensible layout speaks to how we live today, adopting a great room concept that frames the view of San Francisco and the Bay perfectly while offering privacy that is rarely available in the hills.

More About Forestland
When people talk about the Oakland District of Montclair, they're really talking about six different micro-neighborhoods. It can take years living in Montclair to finally figure out what the differences were, but eventually you'll get it. Why does it matter? Well, practically speaking, it doesn’t. Montclair is a wonderful little oasis in the Oakland Hills. It is a true village atmosphere and residents all enjoy the centrally located park, a weekly Sunday Farmer’s Market, a storybook library, and fantastic elementary schools. Usually, people don’t even reference which neighborhood in Montclair they live in. So, why bring up the differentiation here?
Well, if you are interested in living in this magical little spot, knowing the differences between the neighborhoods could help you find the right house for you or your client. Each neighborhood has its own feel and character and historically, different real estate prices.
Think one giant, eclectic tree house. At the top of Montclair, it is close to great hiking trails at the local regional parks and has lush, canyon views. The homes are mainly mid-60s to mid-80s contemporaries with lots of decks but little to no yards. For the most part, homes in Forestland go for the least amount per square foot. Children attend Thornhill Elementary.
