Built in 1978, this rare and charming condominium is located in the sought after Bronze Coast neighborhood. The complex consists of only four units at the corner of Alameda Ave and Union amongst rich foliage and expansive residential homes. The home has been thoughtfully updated with refinished hardwood floors, new carpet, fresh paint and updated lighting.

This spacious home offers an open living and dining room, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a powder room and an open kitchen/family room. Also featured with this unit is covered parking for two cars, and a large, private storage room. An electronic gate to the parking garage offers security as well as privacy.

Inside, the spacious and sunny open living and dining room offers sophisticated Berber-style carpeting, and a new dining room ceiling light fixture that perfectly complements the home’s modern style. Sliding doors in the dining room open to a small balcony that is ideally suited for adding a touch of greenery with planters.

A hallway leads to the open kitchen and cozy family room at the back of the home, which is separated from the living and dining rooms by a powder room and separate laundry room. The inviting kitchen features hardwood floors, a divided stainless steel sink and new faucet, a greenhouse window over the sink, and freshly painted cabinets.

A kitchen breakfast bar acts as a divider between the kitchen and cozy family room that features a painted brick wall fireplace and sliding doors that open to a large deck, making indoor/outdoor entertaining a breeze. Stairs from the deck lead down to a private patio under a stately tree within the fenced backyard that also includes fresh drought-tolerant plantings.

Three bedrooms are located upstairs, including the master bedroom suite. Soft and neutral Berber-style carpeting covers the stairs, and continues through the hallway and into each of the bedrooms. The sunlit, spacious master bedroom is located at the end of the hall and has a large, walk-in closet and a soothing view of the full, green foliage from the mature, backyard tree. The en-suite bathroom has a generous vanity to accommodate plenty of storage, and a large, walk-in shower.

Two additional bedrooms are newly carpeted, have walk-in closets and are typical in size for the age of the home. A second full bathroom along the upstairs hall offers new lighting, a large vanity, and a shower/tub combination. An electronic gate offers secure access to the covered 2-car carport & full storage room below the home.

This fabulous home offers a great central location with easy access to downtown Park Street restaurants & shopping, superb Alameda schools, South Shore Shopping Center, Crown Memorial Beach & idyllic Franklin Park.

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.
