The space

This luxurious 3000+ sq. ft. 3 story home is situated in Alameda's prime neighborhood, the Gold coast. The house was built in 1921 and has the hallmarks of a beautiful period house, with beautiful hardwood floors throughout and lots of large windows creating a space with incredible light, which has been updated therefore boasts all the modern amenities required today including a large new pv solar system making it very eco-friendly. It has 5 spacious bedrooms (2 queens, 1 full, & 5 twins + 2 wooden cribs) and 3 baths. The home has a large newly remodeled eat-in kitchen with oven, dishwasher and 2 separate sinks. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything needed for cooking & entertaining, utensils, pots and pans you name it. There are french double doors which open out on to a large patio in the backyard which has a gas BBQ grill and patio furniture with seating for 8 and 2 sun loungers. The garden is completely fenced so children can play there safely without any worry about them, there is also a trampoline for the kids to enjoy. The backyard has just been updated and resembles an English country garden and has access to a private lagoon with a dock which is fun for sundowners and/or a paddle.

SPACIOUS; The house has lots of beautiful large windows making it a wonderful light home along with huge rooms. It has a large living room with a big fireplace. A library / TV room with a 52" flat screen HDTV and a Bose DVD/CD music system. There is wireless throughout the house. There is a children's play room next to the kitchen full of toys and a desk and sofa. A full bathroom is located on this floor.

On the second floor is a huge sunroom which is fantastic for curling up and reading a book in peace as well as the master bedroom with a adjoining reading room with views of San Francisco's city line, (there is a crib in there if needed). There are 2 further rooms (1 queen, 1 twin bunk beds and a crib) and a full bathroom on this floor.

In the attic there are 2 more bedrooms (1 double, 1 x 2 twin) and a full bathroom. An extra single twin bed is situated in the corridor room between them if needed. This floor is accessed by going through the sunroom so it is easy to section off this part of the house if it is not needed. The are fans and electric radiators on this floor if needed.

The heating system is a radiant heating so far less noisy and less polluting than the forced air version. There are 3 zones to the heating system 2 on the ground floor and 1 on the second floor. The boiler is located in the basement along with the washer and dryer.

Amazing house in a stunning neighborhood! Lucinda's place is absolutely beautiful, spacious and well equipped. Her place is a perfect place for a big family with young kids. My family and I adore her place to pieces and it was a heaven for my nephew and niece (2 and 4 yrs old) - trampoline in the backyard, access to waterfront, kids' playroom with large doll house and toys. We really wish we could stay there longer!

An elegant, grand home in the Gold Coast area of Alameda, takes you to a gentler time. Under the grand oaks in the back yard is a bit of paradise! Beautiful home, with the 3rd floor "kid heaven" our niece & nephews wanted to stay forever! It was a very fun experience for them. Staying here you feel like you are a guest in a family member's home. Very warm and welcoming.

Your house was perfect for our family of 9. All adults, but there was plenty of room, three full bathrooms and beds enough for everyone! Your lagoon access was a plus and we spent plenty of time there as well as your amazing kitchen where we gathered most of the time. Thank you so much for your hospitality as you were very responsive prior to our coming after our first host cancelled on us last minute. Now we are happy they did so we could enjoy this lagoon access home on a quiet dead end street. If we ever come back to the area, we will definitely look for your house first!
