This bright and welcoming home with its cheerful bay window and pleasant front patio, is perfectly located at 1855 Trestle Glen Road in Piedmont. It offers 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2095 sf =/- of living space.
Just off Park Boulevard, and moments from the favorite shopping and dining areas of both Glenview and Montclair Village, it is extremely well placed for trips up to the parks and trails in the hills above, and for accessing the many activities that Oakland has to offer, including nearby Chabot Science Center and Knowland Park Zoo.
The front of the home is enhanced with this appealing front patio area that represents one of the central design concepts of the home- to create multiple opportunities for residents and guests to enjoy the very best of both indoor and outdoor living.
This gleaming living room is awash in light provided by the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors to the outside deck, and the companion windows to the left. This concept of inviting the "outside in" is typical of homes of this era, and will be seen throughout the home.
Whether sitting in front of the commanding brick fireplace on cooler evenings, or moving freely in and out from the spacious deck area on a warm Spring day, one finds that this home equally perfect for entertaining, or quiet relaxation on a lazy afternoon.
A slightly different perspective of the room reveals a spacious living space that provides an opportunity for varied design configurations around the centrally placed fireplace. A comfortably sized dining area to the left is enhanced with a pass through from the kitchen. The golden colored hardwood floors add both a warmth and a pleasing contrast to the white walls.
Just outside the living room is this inviting wooden deck area that is easily accessed and expansive in size--a perfect venue for hosting parties, luncheons or teas.
Another view reveals the unique railing design, the various seating configurations, and the warmth and privacy afforded by the surrounding and sheltering trees.
A home this size requires an outstanding kitchen, and the updated kitchen seen here offers so many amenities. It has been creatively imagined in such a way that food preparation space is both comfortable and efficient. In addition to the plentiful counter and work space, and the varied storage drawers and cabinets, additional amenities include a gas range/ccoktop, built in oven, and refrigerator
Equally desirable is this pleasing eat in kitchen space which is ideal for a casual breakfast or lunch during the day. Large windows that open to the gardens outside are a delightful asset, as is the small, but pleasing, window seat area at their base.
A reverse view offers the pleasant outside courtyard greenery that is seen from the kitchen.
There are three bedrooms in the home. The first, seen here, is generous is size, providing sufficient space for a bed, two large nightstands, and a soft chair.
Immediately adjacent is this very handsomely upgraded bathroom that includes a bathtub, stall shower, and this uniquely color coordinated sink.
A second bedroom carries through the theme of generous window space, warmly colored hardwood floors, and views of the gardens.
The lower level of the home features this very comfortable family room with its own wood burning fireplace, and very flexible floor space.
Another perspective reveals the impressive access from the family room to the expansive lower deck space located just the other side of the sliding glass doors.
Another angle provides a view of the seating space and entry door into the home's desirable office/work space.
While this space is currently being used as an office space, it could easily be converted to other uses, some of which might include a library, den, music room, or play room.
The lower level is also fitted out as a guest suite. Seen here is the attractive and efficient kitchen space, complete with space for its own eat in table and chair set.
This third (or guest) bedroom is substantial in size, has garden views, an adjacent bathroom, and built in bookshelves for storage and display.
If this very congenial home, with its multi level view balconies, soothing ambiance, and flexible design appeals to you, I encourage you to call me promptly with your questions and interest at (510) 517-6280. The residence is being offered for sale for $1,380,000.
