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.
