A light-filled gorgeously maintained 3BD/2BA, 1486 sq ft, Spanish Revival, 1624 9th Street is a brilliant example of the many architectural styles found in the Central Alameda neighborhood, blending period details with stylish modern upgrades and additions. Hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, arched doorways, and tall sunny windows add grace and beauty, while the updated eat-in kitchen, remodeled baths, large bonus room (may function as third bedroom?), and finished garage add modern convenience. The home is ideally situated near beaches, parks, and Webster Street shops and restaurants. For commuters, the home is convenient to BART, the Posey Tube, and the SF ferry.
A charming walkway leads to terracotta steps with decorative tile accents, and drought-resistant plantings frame the traditional shaded porch. The expansive entryway features warm Spanish tile and opens onto the spacious living room through an arched doorway typical of the period. The vaulted ceiling with exposed beams gives the room an open feel, and hardwood floors shine in the natural light spilling through the tall arched window. A brick fireplace graces one wall. A wide arched doorway opens onto the gracious formal dining room with two double-hung windows and vintage-style chandelier, and to one side a pass-through window provides access to the kitchen.
The updated eat-in kitchen includes a sunny breakfast nook for informal meals and a breakfast bar with Spanish tile accents. The home chef will appreciate the 5-burner gas range, Bosch dishwasher, expansive countertops, and abundant cabinets for storage.
On the top level are two light-filled spacious bedrooms, each with cork floors, large windows, and walk-in closets. A shared bath features octagonal tile floor, a shower over tub with subway tile, and a modern console sink. In the hallway, two closets provide abundant storage.
On the lower level, a large bonus room features floor to ceiling windows overlooking the back patio and two large closets for storage. Also on this level is a full bath with subway-tiled shower over tub and vanity for storage.
The attached, finished garage with internal access includes a laundry area with stacked W/D and sliding glass doors to a brick patio. The enclosed backyard is bordered by planting beds of succulents and shrubs, and gates on either side lead to the front of the home.
