About 1528 Madera Circle

Welcome Home

Rare 4-Level El Cerrito Hills Home with Spectacular Bay, Bridge & City VIEWS!

Perched in the El Cerrito hills, 1528 Madera Circle is a spectacular home featuring stunning bay, bridge, and city VIEWS with four levels of living space and three west-facing decks. Look out to the Golden Gate Bridge and Mt. Tamalpais, or, closer to home, watch deer graze on the hillside below. This 4+bed, 2.5-bath house wins with its location, too. On a quiet tree-lined cul de sac, the home feels secluded but is just minutes from top rated schools, hiking trails, a golf course, San Pablo Avenue shops, restaurants, and BART. As the East Bay continues to reopen, this is where you’ll want to be centered!

Inside, 1528 Madera Circle is a modern showcase of vaulted ceilings, creative uses of natural light, and artistic detailing. plus wonderful separations of space. On the first level you’ll find the primary suite, which opens to a west-facing deck that will spoil you with glorious bay views and the sound of birds chirping. The gorgeously updated en-suite bathroom features a walk-in shower and marble tile.

On the second level below: An open and airy entertaining area with wall-to-wall windows, a cozy fireplace surrounded by built-in bookshelves, an updated eat-in kitchen (stainless steel appliances, marble countertops, built-in microwave), and additional space for a family room. Two sets of sliding glass doors open to an expansive deck for unparalleled indoor-outdoor living. There’s also a stylish powder room with cool copper-accented grout.

On the third level: Newly carpeted stairs lead to 3 bedrooms, each with bay views, an updated shared bathroom, laundry, and a secluded deck with a hot tub, framed by oak trees. On the fourth level: A bonus room with tons of possibility - the previous owners put their art studio here, but it would be great as a home gym, office, or extra bedroom. They also took advantage of ample storage and workshop spaces tucked into subareas.

This rare home exudes everything special about the East Bay.
