One reason why Braddock and Logan has remained one of the Bay Area's leading homebuilders is because they always listen to their buyers. "So when homebuyers asked for more formal living areas in our Residence Two plan at Biella at Positano, we responded with an exciting new redesign," said Tamara Wheeler, Director of Sales and Marketing.

In addition to the new formal living room and dining room, the 3,608-square-foot home now offers a downstairs fifth bedroom with its own bath. Ideal for entertaining, the luxuriously appointed home also features a great room for casual gatherings, a loft area (or optional sixth bedroom) and three and one-half baths.

Offering a new release in early December, Biella's luxury homes are located within the landmark Positano, a planned community set high in the Dublin hills. "Not only does the setting feel like a private hilltop retreat, but it offers sweeping views of the city skyline and surrounding rolling hills," said Wheeler. Hundreds of acres are designated as permanent open space within Positano, and in the planning are more than ten acres of landscaped parks and a new elementary school.

Biella takes it name from the town of Biella in Italy, and that inspiration can be seen throughout the three home designs. Architectural details such as arched windows, concrete tile roofs, stonework, shutter accents, 2 or 3-car garages, carriage lighting, and a rich Mediterranean color palette add to the upscale appeal of the streetscape. Inside, gracious entryways lead to richly appointed interiors with high ceilings, stunning 17x17 ceramic tile entry flooring, media niches, gas fireplaces, rounded drywall corners, and a long list of energy-efficient features.

Comfortably large and beautifully crafted with lavish amenities, the four-to six-bedroom homes range in size from 2901 to 3748 square feet and boast such show-stopping options as a first floor guest studio (per plan), loft, super great room, and clubroom or den.

The gourmet kitchens feature granite slab countertops, many GE stainless steel appliances - including a 36-inch gas cooktop with five burners, 30-inch oven, built-in microwave, and Energy Star® dishwasher – expansive kitchen islands, high- powered Zehpyr range hood, spacious pantries, custom designed beech cabinetry with Pacific Walnut stain, and ceramic tile flooring.

The master suites offer wall-to-wall luxury, with oversized bedrooms, gorgeous bathrooms with Kohler™ soaking tubs and separate showers and walk-in closets large enough to be mistaken for bedrooms. 
A member of the Build It Green™ program, Braddock & Logan designed Biella homes with the environment in mind. These high performance homes exceed Title 24 requirements by at least 15% and include radiant-barrier roof sheathing, foam sealant, high efficiency water heaters, split-zone heating and air conditioning, motion sensors and dimmer switches on lights, and low VOC paint.

Biella's prime location offers easy access to BART and highways 580 and 680, making for a smooth commute to anywhere in the Bay Area. Several golf courses, parks, theaters, and restaurants are just minutes away. And Dublin's new town center and Ulferts Center are conveniently located nearby for shopping or lunch with friends.  Dublin's excellent school system offers Biella residents the advantages of new elementary and middle schools and an expanded high school

Prices for Biella homes start in the high $700,000s.
