This stunning rear garden at 1643 Trestle Glen Road in Oakland, reveals its enchanting beauty, and the dedication that has gone into its creation.  Nestled in the trees of this Crocker Highlands neighborhood, the home and gardens offer a Tahoe like atmosphere that is both soothing and immediately inviting.    

What makes the residence even more distinctive is that it is just moments from Oakland's Park Street, that leads downhill to the pleasant Glenview neighborhood shopping, and uphill to the favored shops and restaurants or Montclair Village and Highway 13.  

It offers 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms in a generous 2581 sf +/-  of living space.

Stepping down from the deck seen above, one discovers this carefully designed, and uniquely presented patio space that promises many years of pleasant outdoor living and entertaining.

The home has been designed to compliment and engage with its peaceful surroundings, and it settles in nicely among the tall old growth trees and long established greenery. 

 Stepping into this expansive living room, guests are welcomed by softly colored walls, beautifully updated hardwood floors, and three sets of multi-paned picture windows that draw in all the exterior light and scenery.  

A reverse view reveals the dining room, and its proximity to the living room-a floor plan that provides an easy transition from one space to another when entertaining.  

A set of French doors opens to invite guests to move freely from one location to another which is especially effective when hosting large events.  However, the dining area is more than suitable for enjoying a small and quiet evening meal on chillier evenings, if preferred.    

One would expect a home of this caliber to have an outstanding kitchen, and this gleaming, freshly updated kitchen does not disappoint.  It offers amenities that should please the most demanding of home chefs.  

Outstanding features include a stone counter, dishwasher, double oven, electric range/cooktop, microwave, refrigerator and pantry.  

A wider view reveals an eat in kitchen space suitable for  a set of a comfortable table and chairs, and a virtual wall of windows that include a charming bay window over the sink, and a door to the outside patio. 

Also on the main floor, is the very welcoming and spacious family room that is anchored by a very impressive central fireplace.  This is a wonderful place to spend a lazy afternoon or pleasant evening.  

A slightly different perspective highlights the three walls of view windows, and the space available for a variety of design options.  

An imaginative use of this space in the family room is reflected in this perfect placement of a desk and chair under a window that captures a soothing views of the gardens.  

There are three bedrooms in the home.  The first, seen above, easily accommodates a set of twin beds, or it could be reconfigured for one large bed and perhaps a set of soft chairs, and a window seat.  

The second bedroom has a sliding door closet, a view window, and continues the home's concept theme of soft white walls and light hardwood flooring. 

As would be expected in a home of this quality, the primary bedroom is exceptional.  Large, with a personal balcony and an en suite bathroom, it would be a perfect place to retire to at any time of day.  

A reverse viewpoint reveals the large closet spaces and, once again, the proximity of a personal and private bathroom.  

The primary bathroom is large and well conceived.  Thoroughly updated, it provides a large dual sink counter with plentiful storage space below, and large dual mirrors above.  A stall shower and twin windows complete the unique appeal of this room.  

If you would like to enjoy the comfort and presence of this very distinctive home, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,695,000.
