Nicky and Eddie have lovingly restored this beautiful Victorian property over the years and now they would like to share it with vacationers. Nicky has many years under her belt in the hotel industry and knows all about hospitality. Eddie is a civil engineer and general contractor by trade and ensures the building is up to code and running smoothly. They take great pride in the fact that all systems of the building have been replaced from the foundation to the roof, electric and plumbing. The building has been retrofitted and is in top condition with modern amenities. The restoration was acknowledged in 2003 by the Alameda Architectural Preservation Society with an architectural preservation award.
When we bought the house, it was in need of some TLC. It had four rental units. Many years and lots of money have converted the property to three units with the most spacious now offered on VRBO. There are two owners who live on site. Lots of pride of ownership. We consider ourselves fortunate to own such a lovely, well made 115 year old building and to have been able to update all the systems of the house to bring it into the 21st century while maintaining its unique historic appeal. The builder of the house was himself a builder and his family lived here in 1898.
1898 Victorian, fully restored, large, spacious, high ceilings, filled with light and all amenities. Great location, steps from a beach and a great shopping center. When we bought this home we fell in love with the simple lines and admired the skill and craftsmanship of the people who built it as well as the wonderful community that is Alameda with all the benefits of a small town in a major metropolitan area. Wonderful weather year round, clean and safe city with a real sense of community. Typically, Alameda is 8-10 degrees warmer than SF with no fog or wind. A great location for folks working in the East Bay including UC Berkeley and Emeryville. Suitable for families on vacation and corporate rentals. Ideal for relocation while you find a permanent home.
