Craftsman Bungalow with Contemporary Stylings and Period Charm

Overview: 3 bedroom, 1.5 bathrooms, 1671 square feet

Built in 1907, this cheerful blue-shingled craftsman bungalow cohesively pairs period details with clean, contemporary stylings—dramatic box-coved ceilings, original oak floors with detailed perimeter inlays, and classic vertically striped wainscoting meet fashionable living spaces with modern aesthetic light fixtures. Lined with wispy trees and colorful homes, its charming neighborhood unfolds onto vibrant Park Street and myriad boutiques, cafes, Alameda
theater and more.

From the street, a pathway leads past the lush green flora in the yard to the elevated and inviting front porch—picture lounging idly in the cool shade on a sunny afternoon. Inside, bright, open living spaces include:

-Spacious living/family room with six sunny windows; plantation shutters; and a rich red brick, mid-century fireplace popping from the freshly painted white and natural colored wall

-Dining room with double door entry, iron and glass contemporary chandelier, bay windows, and built-in cabinetry with unique lead-paned glass doors

-Large kitchen and breakfast area offering granite counters, a vintage floral tile backsplash, double sink, white glass top range, and a skylight to brighten the open space

-Two generous front bedrooms with hardwood floors, bay windows, built-in bookshelves, and walk-in California-style closets

-Third sunny and airy back bedroom taking full advantage of a wraparound deck and peaceful backyard sanctuary through sliding glass doors

-A mature Japanese maple, rosemary bush, lime tree and various flora augment the natural backyard with patio seating and barbeque space – imagine effervescent indoor-outdoor living and entertaining

-Extra-large downstairs bonus area (not included in square footage) perfect as a media room, art studio, or kids’ play space

-Full laundry room, tank-less water heater, and fresh paint throughout

With nearby top-notch schools, Park Street dining and shopping, South Shore Center, and Alameda beach and trails—plus easy access to freeways, Oakland airport, BART and tech shuttles—1371 Pearl is a tremendous opportunity to own a delightful home in a highly sought after neighborhood.
