A Storybook Dream Home in Rockridge

Welcome to 5729 Clover Drive, a magical three bedroom two and a half bath home uniquely designed in the storybook motif and located in Rockridge, one of the East Bay's storybook locations.

It is hard to guess from its exterior how spellbinding the main living space is, with its two-story vaulted ceiling featuring unique curved wood joists and a delightful winding staircase. The expansive living room is special, with a south wall almost entirely composed of windows that overlooks the charming garden and allows light to pour in all day. The period fireplace and stained glass windows complete the fairytale feel in this dramatic room.

Complementing this space is the formal dining room which is perfectly sized to host parties both intimate and large.

The adjacent completely updated and modern kitchen is anchored by a large skylight. This is a kitchen that will please even the most demanding chef with its smart layout, top-rated appliances, and huge center island.

Off the kitchen is the public powder room which in turn leads to the vaulted family room and office area. With multiple skylights, a cleverly hidden washer dryer closet, and a built-in desk area, this room is practical, yet beautiful. Finishing out the main level are two bedrooms that share a lovely period bath.

Up the dramatic staircase is the master suite.  This private sanctuary is light filled, and complete with a charming master bath, and walk-in closet.

Through the glass kitchen door is a magical garden featuring two enchanting fountains surrounded by mature plantings, plus dining and seating areas nestled within. A long driveway and two-car garage round out the wonderful amenities of this property.

The all-important location is also fairytale-like, being only steps from BART and the bounty that is located on College Avenue. Dining, shopping, parks and schools are all within easy reach. This is the home that makes you feel like storybook dreams can come true.
