Sold $1,100,000 (List Price: $795,000) - Single Family Home
Situated on a lovely street on the West End of Alameda, 1520 Third Street is a 2BD/1BA split-level Art Deco Bungalow with warm vintage charm and stylish modern upgrades. This light-filled home features a formal dining room, remodeled eat-in kitchen with breakfast nook, and updated bath. Details of the architectural period include high ceilings, burnished hardwood floors, and a traditional fireplace, while modern recessed lighting and oversized picture windows fill the gracious rooms with light. The home is just blocks from Webster Street amenities and farmers market, and moments from Crown Memorial State Beach, Crab Cove, the SF ferry, and TransBay bus lines.
The modern kitchen is a stylish blend of sleek stone countertops and backsplash with vintage-style cabinets and built-in corner hutch. The home cook will appreciate the gas range and Bosh dishwasher, and the light-filled breakfast nook is an ideal spot for quick meals. The adjacent laundry room includes plentiful cabinets and a stacking Bosch washer and dryer, and a door that opens onto the enchanting back garden.
Two generous bedrooms, each with their own charming features, share a bath with shower over tub, pedestal sink, and large linen closet.
The enclosed back yard is reminiscent of a secret garden with a lush lawn, flagstone patio, and whimsical birdbath. Trailing trumpet vines and ivy adorn the surrounding fences creating a tranquil, private grotto.
The surrounding neighborhood is representative of the small-town sensibility of Alameda with its twice-weekly farmer’s market, picnic areas and summer concerts at Crab Cove, Crown Beach with its annual sandcastle competition, the longest 4th of July parade in the country, an annual stroll down Christmas Tree Lane, and twice-yearly art and wine fairs.
