Sponsored: Art and architecture converge in this new construction solar home

Designed by award-winning architect Phillip O. Perkins, this four-plus-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom contemporary Craftsman was built to indulge the senses and captivate the mind.
Meander to the front entry while admiring the craftsmanship and meticulous detail of this fine home.
Level-in access through the garage leads you to a home elevator that accesses all levels. A well-planned bonus room at the street level with full bathroom and separate entry creates opportunities for au-pair or guest quarters, artist studio, home office or home gym.
Casual elegance defines this new home with views, making it inviting to guests but saving space for privacy too. 
Once inside, you are immediately impressed with the scale and design. Built for entertaining as well as intimate family gatherings, the main living level defines casual elegance. Rich wide-plank oak hardwood flooring and the warmth of continuous natural light throughout the day accentuates the ambience of this environmentally conscientious solar home.
Every detail was considered in the design of the open chefʼs kitchen with an island, plenty of counter space and customizable walk-in pantry.
Upstairs, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and loft-style family room with wet bar and wine refrigerator provide sanctuary away from the public spaces. An indulgent retreat all its own, the master bedroom is a spa-like sanctuary designed for tranquil nights and rejuvenated mornings. The bathroom is an artistic escape that brings the outdoors in. A zen garden draws you outside and features custom-designed fixtures and ecologically minded landscaping with plenty of room for gardening, play, gazing at the city lights beyond or room to roam for manʼs best friend.
Thoughtful, invigorating design offers the discriminating homebuyer a rare opportunity to enjoy art in architecture for generations to come at 2580 Tunnel Road in Oakland.
