This handsome home, with its outstanding curb appeal, is located in the appealing Crocker Highlands neighborhood of Oakland at 638 Trestle Glen Road

While it reflects the traditional lines of its era, it has been carefully enhanced to meet the needs of its new homeowners.  It offers 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms in 1946 sf of living space.  

Ideally located, it has a Walk Score of 87 due to its proximity to the many shops, restaurants and activities that are offered by Lakeshore and Grand Avenues.  The Sunday Farmer's Market, The Grand Lake Theater. and Lake Merritt, with its lakeside walking paths and scenic views, add more to the variety of choices.   

Guests are welcomed into this handsome living room space that offers so many amenities that enhance its appeal.  To begin, warm light flows in from the five floor to ceiling bow windows that are a special architectural feature that makes the home unique, both inside and out.  

A distinctive stone fireplace anchors the living space, and is paired with a set of built in bookcases that invite displays of favorite books, collectibles, or art.  Just to the right, a delightful window seat provides a quiet reading spot on a lazy day.  

A reverse perspective of the living room highlights the gentle curve of the front windows,  and a view of the stairway to the second floor.  This staircase features an imaginatively designed newel post with very distinctive curves that anchors the base of the softly colored wooden steps,   

An additional view of the living room reveals the adjacent formal dining room.  Then, as now, guests are welcomed into the living room for preliminary refreshments before moving to a delicious meal at the dining table.  

This stellar dining room provides both the space and charm for entertaining-whether formally or casually.  An additional set of bow windows mirrors those of the living room, offering amazing lighting for the room. 

An extensive display cabinet and buffet server along the far wall allows  a beautiful display of favorite glassware and china, while below, the generous drawer space accommodates serving pieces, plates, and silverware.   

Just off the dining room is this very engaging and gleaming kitchen that has been updated to create an efficient and stylish workspace.  A lengthy stone counter serves multiple purposes-first as a breakfast bar, or a preparation space, and finally as a serving space, when meals are ready.  

Included appliances are a gas range/cooktop, refrigerator, and dishwasher.  These are ENERGY STAR qualified appliances. 

A slightly different perspective reveals the very generous overhead supplemental lighting, and drawers of storage space at every height.  

A cheerful family room is just off the kitchen-perfect for casual meals and get togethers, when desired.  The floor to ceiling French doors offer a perfect means to step outside and enjoy the backyard at a moment's notice.  

There are three bedrooms in the home.  Two will be shown for your consideration. The first, seen here, is this spacious primary bedroom.  With its multiple view windows of the pleasant trees and greenery at the front of the home, it is a warm and welcoming living space.  

A gleaming en suite bathroom is just off the primary bedroom 

A second en suite upstairs bedroom is seen here, affording tree top views of the surrounding neighborhood.  Seen here, and worthy of note throughout the home, is the perfect combination of the off white walls, and the softer wood coloring of the hardwood flooring.  

Returning downstairs, and just off the kitchen and family room mentioned earlier, are the steps down to the home's private back yard.   

With its inviting rear lawn, walkways, and surrounding gardens, this is  perfect for parties and special events. 

If you are interested in this home and its many and varied amenities, I encourage you to call me promptly regarding it at (510)517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,725,000.
