Built on a sunny corner lot in 1906, the home's scale and architectural details mimic that of a much larger home. This 2 bedroom and 1 and 1/2 bath home, over 1451 sq. ft., has large rooms with nice lighting that only a corner lot can offer. The home has a full basement that lends itself to endless expansion possibilities and a 4200 sq. ft. lot that includes a charming detached garage all of which could be enclosed and gated for privacy.
As you walk up the front stairs there is a welcoming front porch - a comfortable place to enjoy a private moment or for entertaining guests. The lovely main entry with French doors that separate the large light filled living room on the right and the impressive formal dining room on the left is elegant. The home is rich in details with high coved ceilings, the generous use of wainscoting, plate rail, wide baseboards, picture molding and quality hardwood floors.
The 2 bedrooms are both a generous size and have large closets. The kitchen has been updated and sports warm mocha colored Quartz counter tops set against white cabinetry and white appliances with a taupe colored Marmoleum style floor. The wrap around yard lends privacy and greenery seen from all rooms - a plus in an urban setting. The open pantry at the back of the home is convenient for all your kitchen gadgets and sometimes used appliances.
Just across the street is the Gold Coast and Franklin Park and School. The school is ranked as one of Alameda's best and the neighborhood is perfect for a strool. The park has play structures, lawns, tennis courts, swimming pool, fields and more and is a popular spot for meeting neighbors and friends.
