We are proud to present one of Alameda’s premier architectural splendors offered for sale for the first time in over fifty-five years. Located at the sought-after lagoon end of Bay Street in the heart of Alameda’s Gold Coast, 1106 Bay is a rare and elegant offering – a tastefully upgraded, architecturally rich home with significant structural improvements and a floor plan ideally-suited to the needs of modern life.

Built in 1915, this grand Colonial Revival masterwork features over 3150 square feet of elegant yet comfortable living space in a park-like setting with mature citrus trees, lush landscaping and an enchanting babbling brook and pond. It’s a home that beckons you to a bygone era: an era of “great” rooms embraced by warm polished wood reflecting the glow of a crackling fire in the hearth, an era of tranquil tree-lined streets where children safely ride bikes to the community schools and parks, an era of summer cookouts and relaxing in the shade of a century-old oak.

Lovingly maintained to preserve its architectural splendor, 1106 Bay Street has also been thoughtfully upgraded to provide many of the modern amenities today’s discerning home buyer has come to expect: a wonderful blend of the traditional and modern.

Some of the exquisite features include:

• Four + bedrooms, three full baths
