Welcome to this wonderful Queen Anne Victorian
 
 
Nestled comfortably in the Leonardville neighborhood in Alameda, this 1896 Queen Anne Victorian has a large accommodating floor plan to suit your needs.  
 
Upon entering the home, you are greeted with a beautiful regal staircase. It sets the mood for what’s to come as you pass through the French doors into a grand living room with soaring ceilings. The roomy, light-filled dining area features a fireplace. The kitchen is large and bright. Three expansive bedrooms upstairs, with one that could easily be a master suite, or a fantastic in-law apartment complete with its own separate entrance and kitchen. A fourth bedroom with an enclosed sun porch on the first floor would make an ideal home office.
The large basement is finished and perfect as additional space for incoming visitors, a play area, entertainment, or simply storage.
 
Leonardville is a coveted neighborhood surrounded by grand homes that exemplify a style of architecture of days gone by, yet whose beauty stands the test of time. Alameda is known for its beautiful architecture and many Victorians, and this neighborhood is a perfect example.
 
There are many restaurants and coffee shops within a short distance; neighbors can be seen regularly walking their dogs or just strolling and admiring the architecture of the beautiful homes in the immediate area.
 
A hospital and schools are nearby, as well as multiple commercial shopping districts. Close to a beach and access to San Francisco via ferry or freeway. If you want to live in a neighborhood with a small town "vibe" complete with beautiful surrounding Victorians, this is it!

Neighborhood


Alameda

Alameda was once a peninsula connected to the Oakland docks. In 1902, a canal was dredged to enable easier shipping access, and that turned Alameda into an island. A little off the beaten track, Alameda has a laid-back vibe all its own. Despite its 80,000 residents, there's still a small-town feeling in Alameda.

A 4th of July Parade, complete with horse-drawn carriages, embodies the small-town feel in Alameda, which has preserved much of its Victorian housing stock, cottages, and central, walkable shopping district along Park Street. The Alameda Theater on Park Street was restored to its art deco glory. Civic pride runs high here; formerly the Carnegie Library, the Alameda Free Library was transformed into a multimillion-dollar showplace that earned a Silver LEED certification. Kids play soccer on former parade grounds of the converted army barracks. Crown Memorial State Beach and Shoreline Drive attract wind surfers.

With more than 10,000 buildings constructed before 1930, there is a rich and varied architectural heritage in the area playing a role in Alameda's real estate market conditions. Historic Queen Anne's, more than 1,500 ornately decorated Victorians, and California Craftsmans are some of the most desirable homes here along its tree-lined streets.
