This handsome Crocker Highlands home is located at 1389 Trestle Glen Road in Oakland.  One's immediate impression upon entering the home is one of quiet elegance.   Touches of charm are seen from every point of view.  

 A grand floor to ceiling view window is the focal point of the living room, and reaches up to touch the gentle curve of the coved ceiling above.  

It offers 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom in approximately 1271 sf of living space.  

A large and unique central fireplace anchors the room.  Its softly colored tile facing is paired with a set of barley-sugar columns that are not often seen in many homes.  Two built in bookcases on either side of the central window  provide display opportunities for books, art, and collectibles. 

Just steps away from the living room is this spacious formal dining room with a three large windows that invite in the luminous natural light.  It will easily accommodate a large table and multiple chairs for formal entertaining.  

A different perspective reveals the space available for a buffet server and wall space for a mirror, or perhaps a gleaming glass display cabinet.  

Just off the dining room, a cozy eat in kitchen space is available for a quick breakfast or casual lunch.  

This cheerful white kitchen has a very efficient working space with everything within easy reach.  Storage space for favorite dishes, china and serving pieces is available at every height. 

Updated amenities include a dishwasher, refrigerator, and a built in range/oven.  

There are two large bedrooms in the home.  The first, seen here, provides two expansive windows with views of the trees and greenery below.  Their presence is enhanced with the addition of a third window to the right.  

This room easily accommodates a good sized bed, a large dresser, and at least one side chair, or perhaps a mid-sized window seat designed for a lazy afternoon of reading.  

The bathroom is on the upper level adjacent to the two bedrooms, and, in addition to the this dual sink washstand, it features a large tub and stall shower.  

The second bedroom, with its warmly colored wooden floors and crisp white wooden trim, is charming and cheerful, and includes a unique extra attraction - the bedroom's set of French doors opens to the the personal patio deck seen below.  

What a pleasure to be able to sit in the warmth of the sun and enjoy a soothing moment in the daily rush.    

On the lower level of the house is this attractive bonus room which has been converted to an office/sitting room, but is equally flexible in potential uses, some of which might include an art studio, music room or play room.  

The backyard of the home is devoted to lush gardens, stately trees and serenity.  Tall hedges, private fencing, and old growth plantings contributes to this quiet retreat.  

A classically style pergola, and three tiered fountain, provide yet more reasons to enjoy this imaginative and private setting.  

This impressive home is located close to all that makes the Crocker Highland neighborhood so popular.  The restaurants and shops of Grand Lake and Lakeshore Avenues, Lake Merritt, and the Saturday Farmers Market are just a few of the opportunities available.  

If this home, or another, is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280.  The residence is being offered for sale for $1,195,000.
