Built in 2004, this updated Bayport home is located next to an empty lot that can not be built on, adding sunlight and privacy to the home. The home itself offers a formal living room, dining area, kitchen, family room, five bedrooms (one on the main level, currently used as a home office), three bathrooms, an open kitchen/family room, and an attached, 2-car garage.

Attention to detail and quality is evident everywhere in this sunny home. A stately six-panel front door opens onto stylish hardwood floors that run throughout the first floor of the house. The formal living room is located on the left and the main level bedroom/home office is to the right, with a full bathroom nearby, perfect for guests. The kitchen, with a sizeable center island, opens to the dining area and family room with views out to the back and side yards. 8½-foot ceilings compliment the open floor plan, and divided-lite windows contribute to the airy, open feeling of this living space.

The expansive kitchen/family room is truly the heart of the home! The kitchen includes quartz counters, a large center island, a built-in kitchen pantry, and many Shaker-style cabinets. A bar station with glass-fronted cabinets and dual wine refrigerators also graces the kitchen to provide a convenient way to entertain guests. The family room features a gas fireplace, a built-in entertainment center and fireplace, and direct access to the backyard, with two separate flagstone patio areas, perfect for lounging and outdoor dining.

The second floor landing consists of a versatile, open area that would be a perfect space for an additional family room, play area, or home office. Four sunny bedrooms on the second floor have high ceilings and numerous, dual-pane windows. A jack and jill bathroom connects to two of the bedrooms, and features an oversized dual vanity and a tub/shower that can be closed off for privacy. These bedrooms offer peek-a-boo views of downtown Oakland and the Oakland hills.

The master bedroom suite is a divine retreat; with clerestory windows and a tray ceiling. The walk-in closet is incredibly spacious and the spa-like master bath has a double vanity topped with quartz countertops, a sophisticated ceramic tile floor, soaking tub, and a glass-enclosed walk in shower. Numerous windows provide ventilation and natural light.

Bayport is a pedestrian friendly residential community of homes and parks that offers easy access to the shops and restaurants of Alameda Landing and downtown Webster Street. Within minutes to the SF Ferry and Webster Tube, with easy access to BART and the 880, this home is also a commuter’s dream!

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.
