Just moments from Oakland and central Alameda, is an outstanding collection of family homes that offer spectacular daily views of the San Francisco Bay area.  This slice of scenic beauty is found on Bay Farm Island in Alameda, and features hiking and biking trails all along its water's edge, making living here a delightful experience.  

Just steps away from the seaside trail seen above, is this spacious home located at 2831 Sea View Parkway. .  Its curb appeal is undeniable.  The handsome design of the home, with its lush green lawn, combines with well established, and varied, plantings and an appealing shade tree, to provide a pleasant welcome for guests.  It offers 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in a generous 2483 sf +/- of living space.  

The distinctive red front doors, with their patterned glass window panels, open to reveal this glowing living room, complete with expansive front and side view windows that invite in luminous light from the exterior.  The richly colored hardwood floors combine beautifully with the lightly colored walls and impressive peaked ceiling. 

The entry is enhanced with this unique staircase to the second floor.  Cleverly designed, while serving as a passage to the upper floor, it also provides an imaginative tonsu-like storage space at its base.   The  family room with fireplace is seen to the left.

 The living room and dining area combine here to provide a generous space for both personal relaxation, and entertaining guests.  The space is effectively designed in such a way that a variety of floor plans can be imagined to create a distinctive and individualized living space.  

Just off the dining room is this outstanding Bay view kitchen that is highlighted with a wall of view windows-from its sliding glass windows over the kitchen table, to the charming bay windows over the sink.  Additional lighting is contributed by the generous overhead recessed, and under counter, lighting.  The kitchen is efficient in size, and furnishes all the amenities that should please the most demanding of chefs.  Included here are a dishwasher, microwave, built in range/oven, dishwasher and a sizeable refrigerator.  

A reverse perspective reveals the pleasant family room that is just adjacent to the kitchen. It is certainly an ideal location for easy reception of food from the kitchen during a relaxed evening in front of the fireplace while enjoying the latest media entertainment. 

 A relaxing and welcoming family room provides both the comfort of the fireplace for cooler evenings, and large sliding glass view windows that slide open on warmer days.

As indicated above, there are four bedrooms in the home.  Three will be shown for your consideration and review.  Above is the home's primary bedroom which offers multiple amenities for gracious living.  Generously sized, the room is highlighted by the wall to ceiling sliding glass door that opens onto the inviting exterior view deck seen below.

Just outside the primary bedroom is this view of the grounds, the biking and jogging trail, and the sandy beach on SF Bay. 

A  reverse view reveals the full expanse of the scene to be enjoyed every day, no matter what the time of the year.  

A different perspective offers a reverse view of the primary bedroom, exterior view, and a cozy and private fireplace.  

The primary bathroom has been dramatically upgraded, as seen here, and directly below.  Included is a floor to ceiling glass fronted closet to the left, and this expansive stall shower.

Also included, and seen here, is this large and personal bathroom space featuring an $8000 hydrotherapy soaking tub, a counter with a set of matching sinks with mirrors, and unique lighting from both the creative over the sink fixtures, and the well placed windows.  

A second bedroom is shown here.  It has its own mirrored closet, and multiple paned windows to the exterior.  

The lower level of the home yields yet another bedroom space, and a full sized bathroom.  Here, the room has been adapted to a mixed use of office space and gym, which attests to its flexibility of use.  

This impressive and imaginatively conceived patio area provides a perfect spot for hosting parties, luncheons, family events, or just a spot to retreat to on a lovely day.

This home has been designed to encompass all that the San Francisco Bay Area has to offer--stunning views, a serene waterfront presence, and plentiful living space to enjoy every amenity.  If this home, or another, is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280.  This  home is being offered for sale for $2,088,000.00
