This Queen Anne is possibly the most photographed, most celebrated Victorian in Alameda. She’s been featured in sculpture, paintings, on city phone books and websites. And that’s just the exterior, with its layers of period adornments and a wraparound, turreted porch. Built in 1893, this 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home has a full unfinished basement.
Lovingly restored by current owners to preserve original details like stained-glass windows, anaglypta wall coverings and pocket doors, then adding hand-painted crown moldings and medallions, dressing every room with richly toned Bradbury & Bradbury wallpapers. Updates include electrical, on-demand water heater, foundation, roof and front porch. The sunny eat-in kitchen was redesigned for modern convenience.
The large backyard garden is apropos of the era with Victorian-knot hedges, roses, etc. leading to a detached two-car garage. The central location is perfect for easy access to beaches, parks, schools, shopping and public transportation.
