It’s official: Sunset’s 2016 Idea House is for sale. Located in the hills straddling the Oakland and Berkeley border, the five-bedroom, four-bathroom home with sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay can be yours for $2,795,000.

The Idea House will be featured in the November issue of Sunset.

Sunset has partnered with The Grubb Co. Realtors to sell the sleek, ultramodern, 3,602-square-foot home. The Idea House reflects the Craftsman home architecture style embodied by many homes in the Bay Area.

The Idea House features a game room, wine cellar, and a total of five decks overlooking the bay. The four-story home comprises details and artisan materials that imbue warmth to its contemporary architecture.

“We cannot wait to see this house become a home to a lucky Bay Area family, truly bringing the inspiration behind the Idea House and the pages of Sunset to life,” said Irene Edwards, Sunset’s editor-in-chief.
