The story of 1185 Trestle Glen Road
Exalted with architectural embellishment, this four-bedroom Tudor circa 1920’s reflects polished preservation and befitting rejuvenation. The charismatic Crocker Highlands home embraces its tranquil yet central setting, opening from its family room to a picturesque garden. Original ornamentation distinguishes the façade and interior, while the kitchen, newly updated, dovetails with the period aesthetic. Its multi-level layout includes powder rooms on lower and main floors, an expansive full bathroom serving bedrooms above, and a top floor abounding with bonus living space.
Trestle Glen is prized for its alluring assortment of time-honored architecture and walkability to beloved schools, multifaceted shopping, dining, and recreation. Stow multiple cars in the attached garage while enjoying the neighborhood on foot, by bike, or taking public transportation for effortless commutes.
On a tree-lined storybook block, the façade of 1185 soars to steep pitches and establishes an arch motif. Arches adorn decorative windows, a garden passthrough, the portico and entry, carrying to the interior. Arched doorways flow to formal living and dining rooms, where majestic ornamentation includes a work-of-art-tile Batchelder fireplace celebrating the California landscape, arched-mullion windows including a living-room Bay, and dining-room corner hutches with arched-mullion glass doors. Under foot, hardwood flooring harmonizes with extensive moldings; overhead, coved ceilings arc gracefully.
The dine-in kitchen showcases fresh surfaces suited to the home’s character: Carrera marble counters, subway-tile backsplashes, and milk-white cabinetry with vintage-effect hardware. New stainless appliances include a French-door refrigerator and five-burner range, both by LG. Through a shouldered-arch opening, the breakfast room inspires elegant display and buffet opportunities with a built-in hutch dedicated to one wall.
On the second floor, three bedrooms create a luminous environment with abundant natural light and lustrous hardwood floors. A petite balcony from one presents a sweet perch accessible via divided-light double doors. With a current take on vintage sensibility, the bathroom intermixes hexagonal tile, a window-adjacent large soaking tub, and separate glassed shower. The fourth main-floor bedroom is well placed to double as an office.
Several steps from the kitchen, the family room overlooks and opens via French doors to landscaped outdoor-living space. Level lawn, poised for a garden party, is outlined by mingling trees, flowering perennials, an herb bed, pea-gravel and paver-stone pathways.
