As you enter the home, you’re greeted by elegant mosaic tiling and crown molding details in the entryway. The first doorway opens into an office alcove, which leads into the first downstairs bedroom. A non weight-bearing wall separates the two rooms. Added by the current Sellers, it is believed the wall can be removed to expand the space into one large bedroom, if desired.
Farther down the hall lies a spacious second bedroom, a renovated full bath, followed by a self-contained au pair unit — a large, open studio apartment (with its own full bath and modern kitchen) that is level-out to the spacious backyard.
The upstairs enjoys an open floor plan (with vaulted ceilings) that features a spacious gourmet cook’s kitchen with an island, granite countertops, two pantries, breakfast bar and ample cabinetry with soft-close drawers. Beside the kitchen is a dining room with wide open views and a custom modern chandelier. A wrap-around deck lies beyond sliding glass doors, offering fantastic waterfront views for outdoor candlelit dinners or moments of relaxation overlooking Alameda beach and the bay.
Down the hallway lies a spa-like bath with a flat screen television attached to the wall above the soaking tub. A stylish vessel sink sits atop a bamboo vanity.
A stacked washer and dryer combination is efficiently tucked away in a closet between the bathroom and the master suite.
The master suite contains sliding glass doors, which open onto the deck and offers those stunning bay views once again. Dual walk-in closets provide plenty of storage, and the full bath in the suite includes a standalone shower and pearly white tiling.
Outside, the yard features a raised garden bed, an automatic sprinkler system, and plenty of room to entertain, relax or play.
With dazzling views and quick access to Alameda Beach, 301 Sunset Road is a luxurious waterfront home with convenient access to the finest offerings on the island.
