Welcome to 1421 San Antonio Avenue - A Classic Gold Coast Home

Built in 1908, 1421 San Antonio Avenue is a near perfect representation of the majestic homes that define Alameda’s Gold Coast. The home has over 3,700 square feet of living space located on a 1/4 acre lot with mature Oak trees, landscaped front yard, and conveniently located across from Franklin Park.

Upon entry you will find a spacious foyer which magnificently opens up to all living areas of the home.  The gleaming hardwood floors, unique wainscoting, intricately carved leaf door trims and coved ceilings beckon you to journey further and indulge yourself with the beauty and timeless architecture of this stately and special home so rarely presented to the Alameda marketplace.

The living room with a grand piano spans the entire width of the house, is the heart of the home. The light-filled room features windows with decorative lead inserts and built-in cabinetry. Behind a set of inlaid panel doors is the formal dining room, large enough to host an elegant dinner party, yet equally accommodating for a rambunctious children's birthday party. The kitchen, conveniently located off the dining room, features its own casual eat-in area with easy access to the large backyard for outside entertaining. 

From the foyer, take a walk up the grand staircase to the private living quarters. The spacious landing opens to four well-appointed bedrooms and a hallroom bath. The bedrooms are enhanced with additional attributes such as an outdoor porch to enjoy the night's sky, a large dressing room with shower and one bedroom with cozy window seat overlooking the Franklin Park across the street.

Head to the attic to find two additional bedrooms with multiple built-in cabinets and a shared bathroom. The roof top lines make for quirky ceiling heights which have likley provided endless play-time for the smaller residents of the past.

Endless possibilities await the next owner of 1421 San Antonio as the full basement can become the dream space you've been looking to enjoy. Whether that may be a wine cellar, a media room, or a home office with work-out room, the options are yours!

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.
