Listed @ $950,000

Built in 1900, this gorgeous home features a foyer, formal living and dining rooms, four bedrooms, one full and one half bath, an eat-in kitchen, laundry room and a detached, rebuilt garage in the backyard. Located only two blocks away from downtown Webster Street, with shops and restaurants, as well as the Farmer’s Market twice a week, and nearby to Alameda Landing Shopping Center, Crown Memorial Beach and Washington Park, this home is in a prime location nearby to many treasured Alameda amenities

The exterior has been freshly painted and new, drought tolerant plants blend with lush, established landscaping. Off street, tandem parking for two cars is located to the right of the house, in addition to the oversized garage in the backyard.

The front entrance to this home includes a traditional porch, nestled above a short set of steps with classic railings. The vintage front door opens to a formal foyer with an elegant staircase on the right and a strikingly handsome living room on the left. This spacious, sunny room offers many Craftsman features including large windows, a picture rail and a coved, plaster ceiling. Polished hardwood floors extend from the entryway through the living room, dining room and kitchen, and have been recently refinished to showcase their original beauty.

The home’s dining room is a beautiful example of Craftsman workmanship with tall, wainscot paneling topped with plate rails, and a gorgeous china hutch sideboard with leaded glass fronts and beadboard backing. The original Arts and Crafts fireplace has a simple brick surround and hearth, and a decorative picture rail perfectly complements the coved plaster ceiling.

The home’s eat-in kitchen is divided into two separate spaces, and is large enough to create a contemporary kitchen for today’s modern needs. A laundry room, half bath, and door to the backyard are conveniently situated next to the kitchen.

The home’s four upstairs bedrooms have beautifully refinished Douglas fir floors. Two spacious, sunlit bedrooms feature vintage doors and hardware, and offer very large, walk-in closets with airing windows. Two more bedrooms, at the end of the hall, look out to the tranquil backyard. A full bathroom on this floor has a tub/shower combination, and has been recently updated to include new lighting, a new vanity and a new ceramic tile floor.

A special feature of this home is the recently rebuilt, detached garage with new windows and carriage doors. This versatile space makes a perfect workshop, teen space, studio or home office. The large backyard features new horizontal redwood fencing and mature landscaping that includes a lawn, a sculptural Meyer lemon tree, vegetable gardens and a stone patio for entertaining and relaxing.

With easy access to the Webster Tube, casual carpool, transbay bus (“O” and “W” lines), SF Ferry, 880, and BART, this location also offers commuters convenient and sought after transportation options nearby.

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.
