Re-Imagined Craftsman with In-Law Apartment

Situated on a tranquil, residential street that backs up to the new Jean Sweeney Open Space Park, this spacious Craftsman was originally built in 1912 and thoroughly re-imagined in the 1950’s with the addition of bedrooms and bathrooms in what is now a newer ground floor. The original home is now the second floor, and retains the charm and character of an early 20th century Craftsman bungalow home. This lovely, updated home features formal living and dining rooms, four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a powder room, laundry room and a spacious, eat-in kitchen. Original features include hardwood floors, plate rails, and beautiful wainscoting in the living room room as well as crown moulding in the dining room. A stunning Craftsman style brick fireplace, with a gas insert, takes place of pride in the formal living room, and a bedroom on this level can easily be used as a home office or guest room.

The lower level of the home was completely renovated “down to the studs” with permits and brought up to code in electrical, all copper plumbing, seismic reinforcements. and a new radiant heating system. This space features two more bedrooms, including a Master Suite with a newly remodeled bathroom en suite, and another remodeled ½ bath in the hallway, as well as the laundry room and garage/mechanical room access.

A unique asset to this home is the in-law apartment, which features it’s own private, level-in entrance, garden and patio. This separate unit is approximately 600 square feet and features a living room, bedroom, bathroom and recently updated kitchen as well as new flooring throughout. With interior access to the main home, if desired, this apartment can be used as a private guest suite, teen space, au-pair apartment, or can generate rental income. It is currently rented, with a one year lease, at market rent for $1,875/month.

The home’s gorgeous backyard is a true delight for the senses with water features, a Koi pond, brick walkways and patios, and lovely, mature landscaping that includes citrus trees, bamboo, blooming jasmine, fruit and olive trees. The front yard also features beautiful drought tolerant landscaping. .

With a convenient central Alameda location, this home is located just minutes from downtown Webster Street, nearby to Alameda Landing, the Posey Tube, downtown Oakland, SF Ferry access, and so much more.
