Built in 1949, this inviting vintage home in Alameda’s sought after East End offers a sophisticated combination of preserved classic details and updated, contemporary living spaces that come together to fit today’s modern needs. This stylistic tri-level home has been significantly updated in recent years without losing any of its traditional charm. Features include large living and dining rooms, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a spacious remodeled eat-in kitchen, and an attached garage.
The front doorway showcases a beautifully ornate decorated trim, as do all the living room windows. The living room also includes a built-in fireplace and a large picture window that fills the light with room and showcases the foliage outside. This expansive room also boasts hardwood floors and arched doorways that give the room a spacious and airy atmosphere.
The updated kitchen has been substantially remodeled to include a center island, ceramic tile floors, and quartz counters with a glass and stone mosaic backsplash. The stainless steel appliances include a Samsung French-door refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, GE Profile built-in microwave, and a five-burner gas range.
The master bedroom is a true retreat. Recently added to the home, it takes up the entire first level. The master bedroom suite consists of a large bedroom with a built-in gas fireplace and French doors that lead to the backyard. The vaulted, beamed ceiling and dual-pane windows create an inviting and welcoming, sun-filled space with serene views of the yard. The spacious walk-in master closet has built-in drawers and organizers and is large enough to accommodate even the most sophisticated wardrobe needs.
An elegant quartz vanity counter can be found in the master bathroom, along with a custom glass-enclosed walk-in shower with a tumbled travertine tile surround. The laundry room is conveniently located near the master bedroom suite, as well as a second set of French doors that offer guests and other family members easy accessibility to the luxurious backyard.
One of the most enticing elements of this home is the outdoor entertaining space. This spacious and private backyard is a relaxing oasis filled with lavish, mature landscaping that includes a Japanese maple tree, ornamental grasses, jasmine, and masses of trumpet vine that line the fence and pergola for additional privacy. The faux lawn and large paved patio area provide plenty of space to entertain and play, while the Trex deck has a built-in hot tub, perfect for relaxing evenings in the privacy of this space. The gardens and yard make for a truly luxuriant escape.
Close to picturesque Krusi Park, top ranking Otis Elementary and Lincoln middles schools, South Shore Center, the beach, shoreline walking and biking paths, and downtown Park Street, this home is in the perfect location to enjoy all Alameda has to offer.
