"Built in 1896 as a parsonage, this historic Victorian (included in 125 Important Historic Homes of Alameda) with Colonial Revival touches balances history and turn of the (last) century craftsmanship with careful improvements, upgrades and modern amenities such as an electric car charging station. Upper floor formal dining and living rooms can be merged or separated. With their massive windows and period detailing, they serve as a stunning space for hosting future get-togethers with family and friends. The farmhouse kitchen harkens back to the days when cooking was not an afterthought; the kitchen formed the heart of the home and was sized accordingly. A lower level master bedroom suite opens to a garden which encircles the home. The other two lower floor bedrooms have separate entries. Has 1st priority for coveted Maya Lin Elementary across strt. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, 2x weekly Farmer's Mkt. Easy commute to SF or Oakland (bus or shuttle to BART just 1 blk away)."
