A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity awaits...
A sanctuary above the bay, 11300 Kerrigan is perched on a hilltop with unparalleled privacy and panoramic views of the SF bay and city lights and beyond to the Marin Headlands. On the market for the first time in 67 years, this one-of-a-kind 5+BD/2.5BA California Mid-Century home is over 4000 square feet of wildly creative living space resting on nearly 10 serene acres above the historic Dunsmuir-Hellman Estate, abutting an additional 230+/- acres of protected wildlife habitat. A long private driveway winds through a grove of oak trees, welcoming visitors to an expansive courtyard with a lovely fountain and covered loggia - an inspiring space for basking in the verdant tranquility. The home is surrounded by beautiful gardens including Sonoma-inspired drought-resistant landscaping and lush greenery throughout. Originally owned by a talented artisan craftsman, the home enjoys many custom features including ornate copper-clad exterior doors with lustrous patina, a distinctive copper-framed fireplace, luminous shoji doors with handmade glass inserts, and custom tile. A blend of traditional and modern, the home features coffered ceilings, parquet floors, updated baths, and a newly renovated chef’s kitchen. The home has been expanded with the development of the lower level that includes two bedrooms, a modern bath, spacious family/game room with large wet bar, perfect for entertaining.
Located in Chabot Park Estates, the home is near the Lake Chabot Regional Park, Knowland Park Arboretum, Chabot Golf Course, Sequoyah Country Club, and nationally ranked Bishop O’Dowd High School.
High above downtown Oakland sits Sequoyah/Chabot, a small residential community tucked in the rolling hills amongst redwoods and oak forests. Many of the Spanish-, contemporary-, and traditional-style homes here sit on large lots of one acre or more, bordering the East Bay Regional Park and the Lake Chabot Golf Course. The neighborhood offers a semirural feel but is just minutes from everything a big city has to offer.
The neighborhood is all about access to open space: the views, parks, and miles of trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Chabot Park is home of the 100-acre Oakland Zoo featuring more than 660 native and exotic animals, including a rainforest and an African savannah. The zoo also has a ride area that features a train that circles the park and hosts events year-round, including overnight-stay educational programs, the Clorox Wildlife Theater, and ZooLights during the holidays.
Dunsmuir House is a 37-room Neoclassical Revival mansion built in 1889 by Alexander Dunsmuir that offers historical tours and rentals for weddings and special events. The 50-acre grounds are open year-round, free of charge for picnicking and hiking. Friends of Knowland Park is actively engaged in protecting the preserve's spectacular scenery, including panoramic views of the bay and the San Francisco skyline.
