Tucked away on a tree-lined street in the Normandy development of Alameda’s Bay Farm Island, 5 Christensen is a light-filled 2BD/2.5BA, 1198 sq ft Contemporary with spacious rooms, oak floors, vaulted ceilings, tall windows, and a uniquely private yard.

Ideally located moments from the shore, the home is near sought-after schools, lagoon paths, the Harbor Bay Club, Corica Club Golf Course, and the 7-mile Bay Farm Island Loop where residents stroll, run, walk dogs, ride bikes, and even fish along the shore. Convenient for commuters, the home is just moments from the SF ferry landing, BART, and AC Transit bus lines for easy access to San Francisco, Oakland, and the Peninsula.
With a high ceiling and tall corner windows, the spacious living room feels open and light, and the adjacent dining room features wide sliding glass doors that open onto the private back yard.
