Located on a corner lot in Alameda's most distinguished Gold Coast neighborhood (near parks and sought-after schools), sits this enchanting 4BD/2.5BA 1915 Spanish Revival featuring stained glass windows, French doors, Juliet balcony, oak carved banister, coffered and coved ceilings, and assorted vintage built-ins and trims. With 2,408 square feet, the main level includes a formal entry, living room with dramatic arched windows, spacious dining room with built-in and beamed ceilings, sunny breakfast nook, powder room, laundry room (with LG smart washer/dryer) and access to a large basement area that can be used as a bonus room. The recently updated kitchen overlooks the sunny backyard and features a Miele refrigerator, dual ovens, subway tile backsplashes and natural stone counters. The upper level is anchored by four sun-filled bedrooms; three are equipped with large walk-in closets and the fourth bedroom features a charming vintage-style shutter door closet with built-in dresser. The addition of a wall can create a two-room primary suite capturing a full bath in a nod to the past with a shower over clawfoot tub and pull-chain commode. The recently remodeled second bathroom features a soaking tub, walk-in glass shower, marble finishes and double vanity. The rear yard is a retreat of flowers, fruit bearing trees, succulents, a verdant lawn, and a Jacuzzi hot tub. A detached farmhouse-style garage features a pitched ceiling, rustic beams, and barn doors–a perfect artist studio or home office. The home is blocks to beaches, shops, restaurants, and one block to Franklin Park & Pool, and the coveted Franklin Elementary School.
