Features

Built in 1925, this charming French Normandy style home has been lovingly updated, while many of its original features have been thoughtfully preserved. Directly through the front door, the home’s original hardwood floors and grand staircase with beautifully curved handrail welcome you. The downstairs is perfect for family gatherings or entertaining with its large, sun-drenched living room. The dining room features original built-ins and flows seamlessly to the home’s generous kitchen with light blue cabinets, reminiscent of the French countryside. A half bathroom off the kitchen is convenient for guests. The single car garage, perfect for parking or to be used as a studio, houses the high-efficiency washer and dryer.

Upstairs the original wood floors continue into the three generous sized bedrooms, complete with large closets and tons of natural sunlight. The front bedroom includes custom-made window treatments, while the back bedroom features a built-in bookcase, perfect for a child’s room or home office.  The ample-sized bathroom boasts impeccably maintained basket weave tile, as well as three deep closets for storage.

The home’s low maintenance fenced-in backyard, complete with twinkling café lights, is the ideal spot to enjoy Alameda’s warm summer days and evenings. With more than enough space to accommodate outdoor living furniture as well as a dining set, you’ll begin your mornings here curled up with your coffee and linger over a glass of wine as the day fades into evening.

Alameda’s extremely walk-able West End has the best of island living with its beautiful homes, shops and restaurants on Webster Street, and nearby sparkling waterfront areas complete with picnic tables and dog park. San Francisco is easily accessed with the ferry or Transbay express bus, and Oakland is less than ten minutes away.

Neighborhood


Alameda

Alameda was once a peninsula connected to the Oakland docks. In 1902, a canal was dredged to enable easier shipping access, and that turned Alameda into an island. A little off the beaten track, Alameda has a laid-back vibe all its own. Despite its 80,000 residents, there's still a small-town feeling in Alameda.

A 4th of July Parade, complete with horse-drawn carriages, embodies the small-town feel in Alameda, which has preserved much of its Victorian housing stock, cottages, and central, walkable shopping district along Park Street. The Alameda Theater on Park Street was restored to its art deco glory. Civic pride runs high here; formerly the Carnegie Library, the Alameda Free Library was transformed into a multimillion-dollar showplace that earned a Silver LEED certification. Kids play soccer on former parade grounds of the converted army barracks. Crown Memorial State Beach and Shoreline Drive attract wind surfers.

With more than 10,000 buildings constructed before 1930, there is a rich and varied architectural heritage in the area playing a role in Alameda's real estate market conditions. Historic Queen Anne's, more than 1,500 ornately decorated Victorians, and California Craftsmans are some of the most desirable homes here along its tree-lined streets.
