Built in 1891, this beautiful and stately Victorian Queen Anne home is located in Alameda’s sought-after East End neighborhood, and has been lovingly renovated to properly showcase the grandeur of the Victorian architectural style. The exterior features complex rooflines, bay windows, and decorative railing and turned post columns on the porch. Inside, the home’s ten-foot ceilings and elaborate Victorian period details create a sense of elegance that the nineteenth century architects surely intended for this home.
The vintage front door has beautiful stained glass transom windows in and above the door, and opens to a dramatic staircase on the left, a grand entry hall straight ahead, and the formal living and dining rooms on the right. The refinished hardwood floors on the main level accentuate the handsome door and window casements that embellish the home’s formal rooms. The large, formal living room is stately without being imposing, and showcases a beautiful wood-burning fireplace with an elegant Carrara marble hearth and surround. The large, handsome dining room has many period details, including a beautiful, built-in Douglas fir hutch/sideboard that features leaded glass fronts, a turned spindle transom above a large open doorway in the dining room, and oversized bay windows in the living and dining rooms that flood both rooms with natural light.
No expense has been spared on the kitchen with green granite counters, and professional-grade stainless steel appliances that include a Viking range, GE Monogram refrigerator and a Bosch dishwasher. The kitchen includes a casual dining area that is flooded with sunlight, and large enough for family meals.
The laundry room and a full bathroom, with white hex-tile floors and a walk-in shower, are situated behind the kitchen. Beyond the full bath and laundry room is the family room with French doors that open out onto the expansive deck that overlooks the veggie gardens and lawn below. This room has a closet, and would be perfect as a guest room, family room, playroom or home office.
From the foyer, an elaborate staircase, with carved newel posts and turned spindle balustrades, leads to the second floor. Stationary stained glass windows are fixed into the wall opposite the banister at the foot and top of the stairway. The spacious master bedroom is at the front of the home and features picture rails and tall windows that flood the room with sunlight. Next to the master is a smaller room, perfect for a nursery, home office, or a potential conversion to a master suite bathroom or walk in closet for the master bedroom. A large bedroom with 4 tall windows is next to the master and is also flooded with sunshine and views of foliage outside. This room has a built-in dresser and more than enough room for two in this space. Another bedroom is located at the end of the hallway, overlooking the backyard, and next to an oversized linen closet and the bathroom, with a new hex-tile floor, shower/tub combination, and a white wood vanity with a Carrara marble top.
The spacious basement runs the entire length of the home and is prime real estate to renovate into more living space. The large lot features a long driveway for off-street parking.
Located walking distance to top rated schools, Lincoln Park and downtown Park Street, with easy access to 880, BART, SF Ferry and Oakland Airport, this spacious, elegant home is an historical gem, and affords the precious opportunity to own a part of Alameda’s storied heritage.
