Light and bright, the Great Room has a trestle ceiling, now with skylights above AND below to the family room on the lower level. One of the most interesting architectural additions to this home is how the skylights were added to the floor in the living room that also have lights! This room is warm and inviting with a fireplace converted to gas with temp controlled remote to operate. The stunning views to the Bay, Marinas, Angel Island and Belvedere can be enjoyed from the entire main living level.
