Across the street from beautiful Franklin Park, Pool, and Tennis Courts, 1100 Paru is a wonderful 4++BD/2.5BA American Foursquare home resting nobly on a large corner lot in the heart of Alameda’s coveted Gold Coast. A light-filled treasure illustrative of the architectural heritage of this island city, the home features many stylish modern updates, yet retains its historic character evidenced by spacious rooms, gleaming hardwood floors, and plentiful wide windows - most with original glass. The home includes a formal dining room with built-in hutch, newly remodeled kitchen and informal dining area, and professionally designed modern baths. Four bedrooms on one level include a light-filled primary suite, another configured for maximum flexibility with office built-ins and a Murphy bed, and two additional bedrooms with large closets and sunny windows.
Much of the attic has been finished, creating two additional bonus rooms of flex space and storage. Additional storage opportunities include a powder room with floor-to-ceiling linen closet and a wall of open shelves in the laundry room, and built-in closet systems, as well as separate basement space. In addition to the lush front yard, the rear yard includes award-winning landscaping, an expansive patio shaded by mature trees, and a sun-washed deck off the kitchen - an ideal spot for summer barbecues, elegant al fresco parties, or simply relaxing in the sun. As a bonus, a sport/basketball court provides an opportunity for a variety of outdoor games - fun for both children and adults. Located in the most coveted neighborhood in Alameda, the home is near the twice-weekly farmer’s market and Crown Memorial State Beach, and moments from excellent Park and Webster Street restaurants, shops, and cafes.
