An exquisite, historic 4+BD/3.5BA Queen Anne Victorian at the entrance of Alameda’s Gold Coast, 1304 Morton is truly an exclusive urban oasis surrounded by privacy hedges, fountains, and lush gardens. Built in 1886, the home has been completely remodeled to include a separate one-bedroom apartment and movie room, blending the drama of an opulent Queen Anne Victorian with stylish modern upgrades. Once owned by John Lucasey, a music producer/mixer/sound engineer who built a professional studio in the basement (known as Studio 880 Mix Manor), the studio was the site of many mixing sessions for several of the recording industry’s top multi-platinum artists (per Mr. Lucasey).
Today, soaring ceilings and other period details such as the original ornately carved fireplace, hardwood floors, delicate fretwork, stained glass, and bay windows remain. These elaborate details have been augmented by walls and ceilings hand-stenciled to recreate the intricate patterns of Victorian wallpaper, an eclectic mix of ornate original, vintage, and modern light fixtures, an exquisitely upgraded state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen, and modern remodeled baths to add luxurious modern comfort and convenience.
Other marvelous features include a formal dining room, double parlor, solarium, a movie room built during the days of the recording studio, and a one-bedroom apartment with private entrance.
