About 8450 Aster Avenue
Living Above and Beyond
Welcome to 8450 Aster Ave., an exceptional 3 bed, 2 bath home located in the Oak Knoll / King Estates neighborhood of Oakland. Built in 1957, this incredible home features sophisticated upgrades framed by stunning bay views. From the street you will notice the beautifully designed, drought-tolerant yard. A covered front porch greets you, where you can take in the first look at the panoramic views.
Once inside you will be swept away by the generous front window that frames the bay. The eat-in kitchen will please any chef with sleek granite counters, modern cabinetry, 6-burner gas stove and farmhouse sink. Not to mention the sliding doors that take you right to the back garden where you have endless access to planter beds. The two front bedrooms are full of light and overlook the bay; the primary suite looks onto the backyard hillside. The hall bath has been tastefully updated and includes Carrara marble counters and floors, and an updated vanity. The en-suite bathroom, also with Carrara marble counters and floors, features a stunning walk-in shower with two shower heads.
The 12,800 square-foot lot offers endless enjoyment. Host gatherings on the large patio, add a basketball hoop, or toss a ball on the turf grass. Through the wooden gate you will find a truly magical garden with wandering pathways and steps leading to the top of the hill. Once you arrive, you will never want to leave. To the west you will see panoramic views of the bay spanning multiple bridges; to the east is a gate leading directly to the King Estates Open Space, where you can hike or walk your dog.
No matter which direction you look, this home is truly one that lives above and beyond.
