The story of 700 Trestle Glen Road
In a setting celebrated for consummate convenience and architectural cachet, this four-bedroom home relishes a blend of timeless Twenties enchantment and this-century modernization. It features master and guest-bedroom suites, three bathrooms plus powder room, dine-in kitchen, formal dining and living rooms, a luminous office, and dedicated play space, responding to every need for uber-comfortable, contemporary family living. Fluidly linked public spaces, including the sprawling renovated kitchen, open to a private outdoor oasis replete with dining-lounging deck, level lawn and structured garden interspersed with brick walkways and terrace, hot tub and outdoor shower.
The location earns a superlative walk score; amid polished period residences, this tree-lined stretch of Trestle Glen puts shopping, dining, and recreation within a level-and-lovely short stroll. Current owners of Number 700 stash their car all weekend in the home’s detached garage behind an automatic gate, and savor the neighborhood on foot, walking to the Farmer’s Market, Lake Merritt, movies, and more. Highly rated schools, access to transportation and highways also lie within ultra-convenient proximity.
The home’s asymmetrical façade towers appealingly to great heights, embellished with ornamental medallions and fanciful rope-trimmed porch entry. Decorative details carry to the interior, where intricate crown moldings grace the living and dining rooms. Original facets also include pristinely preserved hardwood flooring throughout, a focal-point fireplace flanked by library shelves, and expansive casement windows.
Laid out with graceful openness between public spaces, the main floor features a circular flow, the outdoor haven a natural extension of it. Bedrooms, as well as the home office, are allotted privacy, occupying the second and third floor, and lower-level play space is directly accessible from the kitchen plus a main-floor slide that lands in the play zone.
Beyond spacious, the reimagined kitchen encourages gathering. Seating areas bookend it; a peninsula invites bar-stool gathering, and a breakfast or sofa area overlooks the garden. Optimally equipped, stainless appliances include a Viking four-burner range. Milky-white cabinetry, providing abundant storage and display, adjoins natural-stone counters and tile backsplashes, uniting a fresh aesthetic with function.
Also refreshed, bathrooms harmonize with the home’s period sensibility. The master bath generates its vintage vibe through a pair of classic-style wall-mount sinks and claw-foot tub, which augments a glassed shower. Bedrooms are endowed with walk-in closets, and the third-floor suite integrates angular allure with a pitched, skylighted ceiling and spaciousness with an office nook and sizable full bathroom.
Plentiful storage space includes an attic plus the garage, which offers a workshop area.
