An Ultimate Waterfront Opportunity!

 

Located in Alameda’s lovely Fernside neighborhood overlooking San Leandro Bay, the home at 3327 Fernside Blvd. provides access to fun for the whole family. The waterfront recreation and views appeal to most everyone, but the thoughtful addition of a handicap elevator, accessible bathroom, and wheelchair access to the dock, make this home ideal for family members with special needs.

The upcoming sale of this home will mark just the second time the home has graced the market in its 95 years of existence. The owners spared no expense in the construction or maintenance of the home. The Craftsman-style home shows minimal wear and was built using old-growth redwood, prized for its pest, decay and fire resistance, strength and stability. The front yard landscaping features 50,000 pounds of Early Sunset Quarry Stone from Paradise, Montana. The six-foot vertical board fence, built of 1.25 inch thick, furniture-grade, kiln-dried Western Red Cedar from Couer d’Alene, Idaho, an 4 x 8 inch treated posts provides security and safety for when the kids run around the grassy backyard. The lifetime stationary deep water dock and float dock are recently restored.  The dock is adjustable in consideration of future environmental conditions and is solidly constructed to hold a boat lift.  There is also a wench to lift your water toys. There is a handicap ramp to the floating dock. The sewer lateral, water and gas lines are recently replaced.

Amenities include a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, a gumwood interior, hardwood floors throughout -- refinished just last year -- and four large bedrooms. Two bedrooms have views of San Leandro Bay. Each bedroom has a walk-in closet. The bedroom on the ground floor is fully handicap-accessible with its adjoining bathroom and accessible shower, sink light switches, and heated floor. The two and a quarter baths each have interesting details. The upstairs bath still retains its original character, including decorative tile accents, but also has modern cathedral lighting and grab bars in the tub for convenience.

The kitchen provides the epicure with an ideal space to create on its marble countertops, Electrolux dual gas and electric range with six burners and double ovens, GE Fridge with French doors, reversible Fireclay farmhouse sink and many other convenient and stylish touches. The kitchen’s light and spacious eating area overlook the water, but alternatively, one could have a meal on the outdoor deck, a seating area on the lawn, the stationary dock, or in the huge dining room.

For the business-minded, this home provides a tremendous investment opportunity, in that it sits on three lots. The current owners developed architectural, and engineering plans to expand the home and construct an additional home on the water.  These plans approved by the City of Alameda, have since expired. In addition to creating new structures on the lot, investors could find some opportunities in the nearly 700-square-foot bonus room or 443 square-foot two-car drive-in garage.

If the home at 3327 Fernside Blvd. wasn’t fantastic enough, it has the added benefit of being located in highly desirable Fernside district of Alameda, central to everything in the Bay Area. Within walking distance of your new home are a yacht club, tennis courts, pickleball, a swimming pool, bike paths, city parks, an elementary and middle school, a grocery store, eateries, and local shops. That doesn’t even include the Altarena Playhouse,  Alameda Theater and Cineplex,  BART, City Hall and the scores of restaurants a little further off at Park Street. Within a few miles, one has access to two 18-hole and one executive golf course, a private airfield, Oakland Airport, two ferries to San Francisco, a multitude of wineries and breweries and other fun, fascinating and delicious opportunities in the Island City.

 

Neighborhood


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.
