Trestle Glen, Crocker Highlands & Haddon Hill
The homes in Crocker Highlands and Trestle Glen have much of the grace and charm of those in Piedmont, the affluent enclave directly to the north, but here they tend to be more affordable. Large, stately Craftsmen, Prairie, Mediterranean and Storybook homes from the 20s, 30s, and 40s showcase well-tended gardens. The houses lie along graceful streets that curve their way through the laurel-studded glen. Bay Area luminaries Bernard Maybeck and Julia Morgan designed several homes here. Residents are active in preserving and protecting the natural beauty and architectural integrity of the area through the Lakeshore Homes Association, which is one of the oldest homeowners’ associations in the Western United States. Crocker Highlands is quite proud of its elementary school.
Haddon Hill, a well-kept secret, sits on the south/east side of Lake Merritt. Bounded by MacArthur/Lakeshore/Park Avenue, it has many magnificent, architecturally significant, elegant, large homes.
The Crocker Highlands, Trestle Glen and Haddon Hill neighborhoods are close to several commercial districts, among them Montclair and Lakeshore/Grand Avenue, both lively and fun areas in which to shop and dine. Lake Merritt, with its “necklace of lights,” offers parks, walking/jogging paths, a rowing club, and FairyLand for children.
BART and access to the major freeway exchanges are minutes away. In short, Crocker Highlands/Trestle Glen/Haddon Hill offers a quintessential residential neighborhood with convenience and appeal.
