Features

This is a truly unique home built in the French Provincial style. Located on a corner lot and oriented toward the corner, neighbors say they have always admired this house.

Filled with light from tall multi-light windows, the unique floorplan makes excellent use of all available light. There are hardwood floors throughout the home that were just refinished. 

As you enter the house the living room is on your left and the dining room is on the right. There is a charming arched hallway between the dining room and the kitchen. The kitchen has been modernized. It has granite counters with tile backsplash that matches the tile floor. There is a kitchen nook with bow windows and the original built-in corner cabinet. There is also a bedroom on this level.

Upstairs you'll find 2 bedrooms and a full bathroom that the owners remodeled from the studs out. Deep tub with creative shelving at the back, new dual paned windows, pedestal sink, wainscotting and mosaic tile floor. The bedroom on the east side has a built-in desk and shelving unit, along with all new dual paned windows.

Downstairs is the second bath that was installed by the sellers, 3 closets and the garage. The garage has room for 2 cars and has an automated garage door opener. The laundry is located in the garage. 

In the back yard is a pre-fab building that the owner used as an office. It has a green-house window overlooking the back yard. The back yard has mature fruit trees and raised beds for your gardening pleasure.

Neighborhood


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 just off Park Street was restored to its art deco glory. Civic pride runs high here; formerly in the Carnegie Library building, 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 Navy barracks. Crown Memorial State Beach and Shoreline Drive attract wind surfers, and familes out for a walk or a picnic on the beach.

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.
