The location could not be better! Walkable to Park Street, Marketplace, restaurants, shops, and services. Close to Park Street Bridge for easy on/off the island.


Dreamy architectural details with just the right upgrades. Distinctive Craftsman details: box beam ceilings, built-in dining room cabinet and storage benches, built-in bookcases, brick fireplace, pocket door with glass panels. 


The large laundry room may be big enough to for a second bathroom. Kitchen has updated cabinets and some new appliances.


The outdoor space is divine. Setback, with cute front yard. Back yard for play and relaxation with a spacious shed for a little extra usable space.


Just this October both the front and back porches were repaired, the wood floors refinished, the house painted inside and out, new main water service installed and extensive re-piping under the house, new vinyl flooring in the kitchen/laundry, and new carpets in the bedrooms. The roof was replaced in 2015 and the furnace in 2017. 


Finally. A gorgeous architectural gem in a fabulous location. You’re home!

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.
