Situated in the Garden Isle neighborhood of Alameda’s Bay Farm Island, 1124 Holly is a beautifully remodeled 3+BD/2.5BA townhome with 2004 sq ft of living space and a versatile floorplan with modern updates (a rare “H” model, for those in those in the know). This light-filled home features an open floor plan, vaulted ceiling, family room, open chef’s kitchen, spacious owner’s suite, and three bedrooms on one level. Additional amenities include a bonus room, private patio, laundry room, and 2-car garage with built-in storage and internal access. Near Harrington Park and Corica Park golf course, and moments from Harbor Bay shopping center, the SF Ferry, and the 7-mile Bay Farm Island Loop where residents stroll, run, bike, walk dogs, and even fish along the shore.
The front door of the home opens onto a spacious common area with vaulted ceiling, brick fireplace flanked by sunny windows, a playful wet bar, and a dining area with sliding glass doors out to a private patio.
The open chef’s kitchen has been beautifully remodeled and updated with warm recessed lighting, stone countertops and backsplash, ample drawers and cabinets for storage (including a large pantry), and above-counter cabinets with frosted glass doors. Distinctive pendant lights illuminate a sleek stone-topped kitchen island with dual sink and dishwasher, as well as power outlets for your favorite appliances. A large floor-to-ceiling window fills the room with light, and a sliding glass door provides access to private and spacious patio ideal for a barbecue or relaxing under the stars.
Open to the kitchen is a welcoming family or game room with a door out to the 2-car garage for ease of carrying in groceries and other purchases. To one side is a laundry room with ample shelves for storage. Also on this level is a conveniently placed powder room.
At the top of the stairs, an open bonus space would make a wonderful home office, yoga studio, den, or media room. To one side is the spacious owner’s suite. Windows on two sides fill the room with natural light, and dual closets (one a walk-in) and a large linen closet provide abundant storage. The adjoining bath has been updated with stylish sconces over a stone-topped vanity with dual sinks and lots of storage and a walk-in shower with two-tone subway tile with decorative inlays.
The two front bedrooms enjoy huge closets and windows overlooking the street. They share a generous full bath with a wide stone-topped vanity and shower over tub with tile walls with decorative inlays.
Bay Farm Island is a tranquil community with miles of sunny shoreline, with easy access to the south bay and close to the Oakland airport.
Highlights at a Glance:
Alameda began as a peninsula just south of Oakland and is now an East Bay island with a laid-back feeling all its own. You will find a variety of homes and condos for sale in Alameda including cozy apartments, spacious single family homes that have been fully renovated, and gorgeous luxury mansions where no expense was spared. 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. Although Alameda is a little off the beaten path, the city has a laid-back vibe all its own. One of the unique elements of Alameda is its population: with only 80,000 residents, the population density is less than half of San Francisco, and similar to the density found in Oakland. Alameda is incredibly walkable. When locals want to explore the various shopping, landmarks, museums, and dining, they usually head to Park Street. Start your day with a visit to the Alameda Museum. Since 1948, the museum has preserved the rich history of this unique island city and offers both locals and tourists an opportunity to learn more about the great island of Alameda. After a day at the museum, there are plenty of great restaurants to choose from, including: Monkey King Pub and Grub: Featuring a unique mix of Asian-fusion cuisine, crafty cocktails, and delicious draft beer, this is also a great happy hour hangout. La Penca Azul: A family-owned favorite for over 25 years, they are also well- known for their taco truck. Original Red Onion: If you love great, locally-sourced food in a family-friendly atmosphere, you will absolutely love this restaurant. Civic pride runs high in Alameda, and many of the city’s older buildings have been fully restored or repurposed. The Alameda Theater on Park Street was restored to its art deco glory, while the Alameda Free Library was transformed from the Carnegie Library into a multimillion-dollar showplace that earned a Silver LEED certification. Alameda is also a great place for outdoor activities. Robert W Crown Memorial State Beach is the perfect place for wind-surfing and taking a morning run near the beach. Alameda is a great place to live if you love a vibrant atmosphere with plenty of festivals and activities to enjoy. One of the trademark events in Alameda is the 4th of July Parade, which features horse-drawn carriages and truly embodies the small-town feel of Alameda. Other popular events and festivals in Downtown include a Spring Festival in May and a Classic Car Show in October. No matter the time of year, there is always something fun happening in Alameda.
