Enjoy spectacular marina and bay views from this gorgeous energy efficient Grand Marina Village “Craftsman-style” home. Built in 2010, this home was featured as the model home for the development because of its prime waterfront location, stunning panoramic views and luxurious upgrades throughout. Strolling along the waterfront or relaxing on the HOA-maintained lawn and seating areas are now just a few steps from your door. Several nearby neighborhood parks are equally close.
Welcome to the Grand Marina waterfront community -- one of Alameda's newest and most sought after locations. Capitalizing on its waterfront location in the heart of Alameda, the home is perfectly situated for quick trips locally and across the estuary to Oakland and San Francisco. This location is close to the Park Street Theatre district and South Shore shops and restaurants. Also nearby is the newly developed Alameda Landing featuring Target, Safeway, and many casual dining options. Off-island trips are equally close to Oakland's Jack London Square, or bridge and transit connections to nearby BART, the freeway and even one of Alameda’s best-kept secrets -- surface street access within minutes to the Oakland Airport.
A grand entry featuring a colonnaded front porch greets you and your guests. A stately presence along the very prestigious front row of homes closest to the waterfront.
Inside, the open floor plan on the main floor combines functionality with elegance. The living space consists of a living room offering spectacular views of the marina, Hunter Douglas Silhouette® blinds, a dining room, powder room, and open kitchen. Sliding doors open to a private outdoor entertainment space, complete with brick patio, redwood fencing and a nice private space for relaxing outdoors. This level features engineered hardwood floors, recessed lights, a generous utility/pantry closet, built-in 5.1 surround sound, a half bath and access to the two car garage.
The chef's kitchen has top-of-the-line KitchenAid stainless steel appliances that include a gas range and hood, dishwasher, side-by-side door refrigerator and a built-in microwave oven. Cherry kitchen cabinets bring out the richness of the granite counters and upgraded backsplash/stove surround. The granite-topped center island offers additional workspace, storage, and seating for casual meals.
A dramatic, two-story open staircase leads to the second floor and has high clerestory windows that feature Silhouette® blinds operated remotely to enjoy the views of life on the marina - palm trees, a passing seagull or the ever-changing color of the sky each day at sunset. The spacious master suite at the top of the stairs is filled with natural light and features a balcony that offers marina views and is perfect for watching the sunset over the water and Oakland skyline. The en-suite master bath offers a Jacuzzi® jetted soaking tub, a glass-enclosed shower, and a double-sink vanity this is finished with a granite top and upgraded fixtures. A walk-in closet is spacious enough for more than one wardrobe.
Two additional generous bedrooms, a large bathroom with a dual vanity and a separate shower/bath, and a complete laundry room with Whirlpool Cabrio appliances and a utility sink complete the second floor.
A special feature of this home is the third-floor media room that includes a full bathroom and an adjacent fourth bedroom that can be used as a guest room or an office. The room has a vaulted ceiling, beautiful views of the marina and a 5.1 surround sound home theater system that makes movie night a treat for the entire family.
Additional features include the energy efficiency of solar panels reducing the need to worry about owning a home this spacious and well-equipped. Also included is the tankless water heater for instant hot water upon demand and no more wasting energy on heating a large tank.
Grand Marina Village really says it all. It’s true! You get to live on an island and enjoy incredible access to the finest big city amenities in Alameda (which also boasts a historic, small-town ambiance), San Francisco and the best of the East Bay communities. This waterfront community offers a truly unique, resort-caliber residential setting.
