Situated in the heart of Alameda’s Gold Coast, 1623 Clinton is a majestic 5,555 square foot home sparkling with architectural riches, modern convenience, grand spaces, and a beautiful private backyard garden. Boasting countless gorgeously preserved early-twentieth-century architectural wonders, a spacious vaulted owner’s suite with private terrace, three en-suite bedrooms on one floor, and a downstairs media room and private spa, this is a residence whose floor plan, rich history, and plethora of exquisite surprises make it an extraordinary place to call home.
This home’s character is evident from the moment you step in the front door, as you find yourself in a vast high-ceilinged entryway lined with picture and leaded-glass windows. Continuing into the formal living and dining rooms, you will be immersed in immaculately preserved original details: Stained-glass windows, beamed ceilings, pocket doors, decorative moldings and door frames, inlaid hardwood floors, fireplaces, crystal chandeliers, dark wood paneling and crown moldings, stylized arches, vintage-style wall sconces, and multiple built-in china cupboards await you. The dining-room walls feature stylish art-deco motifs and extraordinary vintage leather wall panels, and the room’s built-in sideboard completes the effect with original leaded-glass doors. This home’s common areas transport you to another era, one brimming with stately elegance.
The home’s upper and lower levels marry grandeur with modern utility, as does its recently remodeled chef’s kitchen, which boasts quartz countertops, subway tile backsplashes, dual built-in Wolf gas ranges, stainless-steel appliances, an industrial hood/venting system, and an adjacent wet bar. Upstairs, you will find two spacious en-suite bedrooms in addition to the palatial owner’s suite, which features dramatic natural wood cathedral ceilings, a sitting area, and a luxuriously grand outdoor terrace spanning the rear width of the house and overlooking the back garden. Skylights grace the upstairs landing and the spa-like owner’s bath, which includes a jacuzzi tub, separate shower and dedicated warming bed. Below the main level, you will discover another spacious bedroom (guest room or au pair?), ample storage, and one of this home’s special secrets: its private spa with hot tub and adjoining large dry sauna room.
Serenely situated on a gorgeous tree-lined street, 1623 Clinton is surrounded by greenery. Its peaceful back garden and patio seamlessly connect to its spacious ground-level family room, which is lined with full-length arched windows looking onto the garden and flooded with natural light. With its sophisticated combination of period style and detailing, luxurious en-suite bedrooms, private spa, and beautiful back garden, 1623 Clinton embodies everything wonderful the Gold Coast has to offer.
