SOLD $1,210,000 | Meticulous Mediterranean Home | 3 bed 2 ba | 2265 SF | Listed at $998,000 | Guy Blume

2114 Pacific Avenue, Alameda 94501

 

Meticulous Mediterranean with Art Deco Accents

Overview: 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2,265 square feet, and 2-car garage

An extremely rare find, this Mediterranean home hasn’t been on the market in nearly 50 years.  A 1930 family dream home, the second (and only other) owner meticulously retained and improved the upscale vintage quality and character.  Period design elements include hand-made geometric stained-glass windows, art deco wall sconces and fixtures, brass and glass door knobs, and coved and tray 10-foot ceilings—all from an era when craftsmanship counted.  The sturdy wood front door with an ornate door knock and speakeasy viewer sets the tone.  After gliding a hand over the forged twisted iron railing while scaling the oak steps to the main level, the tour begins:

– Wide rounded room entries, wood-framed windows with solid oak trim, re-finished oak floors in dark walnut stain, picture rail moldings, and a mix of new Pottery Barn lighting and original Art Deco fixtures that new designers try to imitate but cannot replicate.

Beautiful archetypal kitchen marrying bright white cabinetry with blue ceramic pulls, uniquely patterned counter tiles, red rustic Mediterranean-style hexagonal tile floors, and a brass faucet over the double sink.  The 1940s O’Keefe and Merritt antique gas range and insulated ice box cabinet are one-of-a-kind features and conversation pieces. 

Eat-in casual dining area with built-in cabinetry overlooking backyard garden

Grand formal dining room with antique chandelier – Imagine effervescent holiday parties and divine cuisine with family and friends. 

Airy living room with ten foot ceilings, huge wood-framed windows, a reading nook, and a toasty fireplace with wood hearth, decorative niche, and antique original tile work. 

– Two baths with vintage heavy iron tubs, pedestal sinks, and medicine cabinets 

Aesthetic and bright master bedroom with large closet and contemporary floor-to-ceiling window coverings.  Second upstairs bedroom with built-in, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and desks, perfect for two little ones studying side by side.

– Multiple storage closets, fresh paint throughout, new carpet downstairs, oversized laundry room, workshop, electric car charger, and more fun period bells and whistles: in-wall fold out ironing board, shoe shining station, and telephone niches!

– Ultra-clean 225-square foot back house with new dual-paned windows for an office or art studio. 

While this home emotes warmth and history, it can also entertain: The lower level, once covering the entire downstairs, was the 1930s party room complete with perimeter bench seating.  Now, it’s a huge bonus family room and the third bedroom.  Play can still spill out to the large manicured backyard—full of fruit trees and garden veggies—and a fresh concrete patio.  Barbecues and play abound. 

A prime location, blocks from historic Park Street, top-rated Alameda High School, a Montessori elementary school, the Marina, McKinley Park and Thompson Field, Acapulco restaurant are all right nearby. 

2114 Pacific Avenue has been a loving home for just two families for decades.  It’s now a unique opportunity to find its third discerning and caring owners. 

Documentation filed on January 26, 2018 with the County of Alameda Recorder’s office reflects an accurate livable space of 2,265 sq.ft. while the online record of 1,364 sq.ft. remains to be updated.  The 2,265 sq.ft. does not include the workshop, garage or the back house square footage.  Total finished and unfinished square footage is approximately 2,950 sq.ft.

SOLD $1,205,000 | East End Home | 3 bed 2 ba | 1829 SF | Listed at $849,000 | Guy Blume

1549 High Street Alameda, CA 94501

 

Built in 1911, this 3-bedroom home with over 1800 sq.ft. on a corner lot, is on the market for the first time in nearly 60 years. Refinished wood floors, stone fireplace, newer paint, dual pane windows, light fixture, dishwasher. Century old detail with brass elements and Art Nouveau stained glass. Foundation raised in 1961 to allow an approx. 6-foot high cement full basement. Back yard. Roof and chimney replaced in the last 20 years. Potential to add master bathroom, convert the unfinished tall attic space or dig out the basement to add another 800 sq.ft. or ADU.

What I love about this home:

I love the size, shape and overall uniqueness that this house offers. Right from the start the house looks like a cross between Victorian and Craftsman. Inside there are push button light switches and brass plates, lead glass windows, Art Nouveau stain glass, original brass cabinet hardware and light fixtures throughout mixed with updated contemporary light fixtures as well. The kitchen is begging for French doors that open to a patio deck while the upstairs oversized bedroom could easily accomodate a private bathroom. The gumwood walls and beams in the dining room create an old time setting while the elegant gray and white painted living room with coved ceilings is simply gorgeous. The tall attic could be transformed into more useable space as could the six foot high basement. Throw in that the house is in Edison School and Fernside District, this house will certainly attract a lot of attention. Please note that there is only one full bathroom inside the living space while an extra working toilet is in the basement.
