This 1895, lovingly restored Victorian home is located on a quiet street in Central Alameda, surrounded by similar, well-preserved Victorians. Architecturally it is know as a Queen Anne High Basement. The folklore tells us this block of Queen Anne homes were occupied by Ship’s Captains. The sea captains would be gone for 6-months at a time, sailing as far as Alaska from what is now the Alameda Marina.
Upstairs is a formal living room and dining room with original sliding pocket doors. You’ll find original window, vintage lighting and crown molding that accentuates the stately rooms. The large kitchen has a breakfast room that overlooks the back yard. A guest bathroom was added where the kitchen used to have a pass through to the dining room.
Sharing this floor is the custom master suite with en-suite bathroom and sliding doors to the deck.
The downstairs was originally the carriage house and stable. It is now 2 bedrooms with sliding doors that open onto the private back yard. These rooms share a custom designed bathroom suite. You’ll also find a large laundry room and access to the finished garage and extra storage space.
The back yard is beautifully finished with flagstones, a pond, mature Avocado tree and flowering Magnolia tree.
The home was updated to code in 1995-96 for electrical, plumbing, foundation, and earthquake retrofitted.
It’s easy to walk everywhere: across the street to your boat at Alameda Marina or just to enjoy the views of the Estuary. Walk South and you reach the restaurants and shops of Park Street. Walk West and you reach the white sands of Crown Memorial Beach. Walk North-West and you find Webster Street restaurants, Alameda Community College and Target.
