Ideally situated between Webster St. and Alameda Point and nearby to high-rated schools and parks, this charming 1929 Mission Revival Bungalow is located in a quiet neighborhood on the West End of Alameda. This lovely property offers a formal living and dining room, two bedrooms, one+ bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen, and a high basement that has endless expansion possibilities. Oh, and the back yard is huge – offering more opportunities for outdoor fun.
The exterior is a distinctive Mission style with textured stucco walls and decorative terra cotta tile roof trim. The front landscaping is low-maintenance, drought-tolerant, and lush.
The entry is the original door with an opening spyhole window. A formal foyer has an alcove closet, and beautiful vintage oak floors refinished to their original splendor. These lovely oak floors with contrasting inlay continue through most of the house. The large living room features a beautiful brick fireplace, original windows, and lots of light. The expansive dining room is just off the living room through a broad, arched opening, and the two spaces share many of the same charming vintage features. Bright natural light shines through the original windows to softly illuminate the room. It is spacious and easily big enough for large family gatherings or smaller get-togethers.
The rear bedroom has original oak floors, picture rails, and two windows that bring in plenty of light, fresh air and overlook the lush back yard. A second large bedroom also has hardwood floors, a generous closet and morning sunshine.
The home's kitchen is updated with custom cabinet paint, granite counters, greecian white arabesque tile backsplash, stainless sink, and an attractive and durable Cortex floor for easy maintenance. The breakfast nook is a cozy retreat and offers two windows with lots of light and a view of the enormous back yard.
A tastefully updated black and white bathroom is easily accessible from both bedrooms and has a new Cortex floor, a vanity topped with marble, a new bronze lighting bar over the sink and a tub/shower combination with original finishes.
Downstairs, accessible from the kitchen, is another 1246 square feet, a blank canvas for your ideas of additional living space. Already existing downstairs is a spacious laundry room with a door to access the back yard. The rest of the basement has high ceilings and could be the perfect place for a guest room, home office, family room, or....
