Loading your dream East End Art Deco home...
Perched on a corner lot in Alameda’s East End sits 3000 San Jose Avenue, a delightful, light-filled, split-level Art Deco home. Featuring a cheerful eat-in kitchen, spacious living and dining rooms, high ceilings, hardwood floors, and charming period details, this is Alameda’s East End at its best. Other amenities include a one-car garage with internal access, arched doorways, period built-ins, and a white-picket fenced rear yard. The home is ideally located on the corner of San Jose Avenue and Court Street moments from Otis Elementary/Krusi Park, Encinal Market and the High Street Bridge. Its proximity to the Alameda ferry system, transbay buses, BART, and the Oakland Airport makes commuting and travel a breeze.
The moment you set foot onto the front walkway of 3000 San Jose, you notice the stunning arched porch that frames a beautiful, solid wood door. Upon entry, you are met with another arched doorway that leads you into the art deco-inspired eat-in kitchen. The breakfast nook is neatly situated in a bay window, and new hardwood floors and cheerful yellow counters and backsplash complement a Verona 5-burner electric range with double ovens, surrounded by ample storage.
The living room expands before you with high, coved ceilings, a large picture window, and tiled fireplace flanked by stained glass windows. In a corner niche, the arched built-in bookcase adds to the overall character of the room.
As you move further, you enter a formal dining space conveniently connected to the kitchen. Accented by a modern light fixture, the coved ceilings, original wood trim, and glass paneled door keep the space private from the rest of the living quarters.
As you make your way up the split staircase, you enter the living area which boasts three bedrooms on one level and a shared bathroom. The rear two bedrooms have windows on two sides while the third boasts an oversized closet. The shared split bath includes a separate water closet with art deco tile and wainscoting. The main bathroom has ample storage, a shower over a vintage tub, and a two-station vanity.
As you make your way downstairs to the basement level, you will find a dedicated laundry area with washer and dryer. Exploring further, you enter the 1-car garage that has built-in cabinets and a work table as well as a half bathroom.
Walking through the side door, you immediately notice the brilliant pop of color that is mature bougainvillea complimenting the arched pass-through to the backyard. A potting station is tucked into the covered patio. Just beyond the double arches, you enter a fenced-in garden that enjoys mature fruit trees and areas for entertaining and gardening.
