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.

“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. “
