1,471 Sqft - 2911 Santa Clara Ave, Alameda, California 94501
Stunning + Sophisticated: 2911 Santa Clara is a Brown Shingle Craftsman located in the highly desirable East End of Alameda. Built in 1909, this single level, 1447 square feet, 3 bedroom, 1 bath home has retained much of its original splendor: Doric column entrance, Coved Ceilings, Wainscoting, Bay Windows, charming built-ins, gleaming hardwood floors and 9.5 inch baseboards.
This home is both light-filled and spacious. Upon entering, you are greeted by a Large Foyer illuminated by a unique and delicate feather light fixture. The Living Room is accented with period details like a Box Bay Window Seat with Storage, a built-in bookshelf and lovely stained glass window. Pocket Doors frame the impressive Dining Room complete with: 3-slot Plate Rail, Wainscoting and Butler Pass through with Leaded glass.
The kitchen has been recently updated with creamy herringbone tile, newer cabinetry, and custom marble floating shelves. Both bedrooms are large with good-sized closets and one of them has a set of heavy, deep Captains Cabinets! The Jack and Jill bathroom has Marble Hex floor tiles, claw-footed tub and pedestal sink.
Beyond the 2nd bedroom there is an enchanting 3rd bedroom, likely a former Sleeping Porch from the early 20th Century, with a wall of windows overlooking the flowing Pepper Tree in the Back yard – this is a wonderful Bonus area which can be used for Nursery, Office, or Family Room. Just beyond the kitchen is another lovely space for laundry, pantry or office.
The backyard is a Modern Retreat recently remodeled with paving stones, high quality turf and planter box. Full basement with newer foundation and a high ceiling attic (10 ft. peak) for more opportunities to add to this already Gorgeous Historic East End home.
Close to Top Schools, Lincoln Park (Bocce Ball, Community Pool, Playground, Rose Garden), Downtown Park Street, Feel Good Bakery. Close to Freeway, SF Ferry, BART and Transbay Bus. This is the Best of Alameda Island Life!
