We are pleased to present for sale 2506 Eagle, a gorgeous 1890 two-story Victorian situated on a quiet cul-de-sac in the sought-after East End of Alameda. Originally built in 1890, this stylish home has been lovingly maintained and fully upgraded with a chic European flare. Boasting a walk score of 88, the home enjoys incredible proximity to vibrant Park Street, Alameda Landing Shopping Center, McKinley Park, and Edison Elementary School.
Curb appeal is immediately evident from the designer three-color exterior paint that highlights the home’s pristine period architecture and its inviting front sitting porch. Features include extensive “gingerbread” moldings, arched cornices and scalloped porch railings. The well-preserved Victorian features continue inside the home with its gleaming hardwood flooring, period moldings and built-ins. A contemporary pastel paint palette creates a playful transition between the old world architectural charm and the modern Euro-chic aesthetic of the numerous upgrades and fixtures.
The eat-in gourmet kitchen is a fully upgraded gem featuring sleek European cabinetry, modern appliances including a Bosch gas range, granite countertops, modern designer light fixtures and ceramic tile flooring. The kitchen is beautifully oriented to enjoy views of the lushly landscaped backyard.
The main floor also includes a formal living room with bay window, formal dining room, two good-sized bedrooms with generous closets and storage, gracious internal hallways and transition spaces (with built-in book shelves), and a spa-like bathroom with designer corner sink, standing shower with frameless glass surround and a claw-foot soaking tub.
Developed bonus spaces abound, providing extraordinary extra square footage. The attic has been beautifully converted into a private master suite with a full bath, skylights, recessed lighting, and cleverly designed built-in storage areas including pull out clothes rack to maximize the use of the space.
But there’s more! The basement has been updated and features a newer cement foundation and slab, including seismic bolting and shear wall retrofitting. With a separate entrance, this wonderful bonus area offers flexibility for storage or creative use. There’s a full laundry with utility sink, workshop, storage area and a tandem, two-car garage.
Both the basement and the main level offer access to the magical garden in the rear. Beautifully landscaped with mature plantings, this private and serene oasis features a hot tub, a built-in brick barbeque, a sunny lawn area and a brick patio space beneath a shady pergola, the perfect spot for enjoying the outdoors and Alameda’s exceptional climate.
With upgraded electrical and plumbing, a flexible floor plan, and so many modern European-inspired finishes, 2506 Eagle offers today’s homebuyer a move-in ready home that has both old world charm and a modern, chic aesthetic in one of Alameda’s most desirable and convenient neighborhoods.
