"Our home had a clear view of mountain before the newly-built building has interrupted the view from our window. Now we see the mountain partially."

For the above sentence which of the following is idiomatic and has the same meaning?

"Our home had a clear view of mountain before the newly-built building has obscured the view ... "

"
Our home had a clear view of mountain before the newly-build building has broken off the view ... "

Thank you.

    A common word for this is "blocked". The new building blocked our view of the mountain...

    ...or partially blocked our view of the mountain.
    ...or blocked part of our view of the mountain.
