Here’s a house that’ll make you feel like you’re living on top of the world – or at least the San Francisco Bay Area. Set at the highest elevation in Berkeley and Oakland, this modern masterpiece offers 300-degree views stretching from Mount Diablo and Mount Tamalpais.

Robert Swatt of Swatt Miers Architects designed the 8,100-square-foot home to be simple and flexible. Materials like concrete, mahogany, limestone and stainless steel come together to create clean, minimalist living spaces – all the better to let the dramatic surroundings shine. Throughout the home, large pocket doors can be opened to create flowing entertaining spaces or closed for privacy.

Step onto the home’s terrace – framed with seamless glass-panel railings – and you’ll feel like you’re floating above the Berkeley Hills. The rest of the home boasts equally impressive views, from the stylish bar to the spacious master bedroom. Check out the photo gallery above to see for yourself.
