Rarely available on Alameda’s Gold Coast is this architecturally rich Spanish revival 3-bed, 3-bath home with gracious formal living areas and many delightful, original features. Owned by the same family for nearly 100 years, 1149 Bay Street welcomes you with an entry and grand living room from which you can look out onto the tree-lined cul-de-sac block of Bay Street with its period lanterns and passersby. This room highlights the newly refinished hardwood floors that span the 2820 SQFT home, an ornate fireplace, beautifully crafted casement windows with iron embellishments, and overheight ceilings. The formal dining room features a beautiful arched built-in and parquet-themed floor, and spills graciously onto the courtyard patio–an ideal location for casual gathering. Next comes the updated kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances, abundant cabinets, and modern counters, flooring, and lighting. A generous breakfast nook sits alongside the pantry closet and a built-in work area, all near an updated full bathroom. A magical indoor atrium room (featuring “Minerva”, the beloved stone sentinel of 1149 Bay) opens directly to the backyard, and easy access to the detached garage. 

Upstairs find three bedrooms including a huge en-suite primary with its full bath, as well as a dual-roomed bedroom that could be an alternate primary suite or used as a dressing room, family room/den, study, or additional bedroom space. This bedroom opens to the loggia sun porch overlooking the backyard. A Jack-and-Jill bathroom and generous built in closets are on this floor as well. Multiple closets throughout and a basement offer abundant storage. Bay Street is coveted for its location: blocks to Franklin School, multiple parks (playgrounds, pool, tennis courts…), and bayside trails leading you all around the Alameda waterfront as well as beaches, bike trails, and the SF Ferry. Minutes away is the twice-weekly farmers market, local shops, restaurants, health and yacht clubs, and sought-after public and private schools.
