About 3256 Garfield Ave

Make yourself at home in this historical Alameda gem in the East End. This 3 bedroom 2 bathroom beauty is the work of architect Charles S. Shaner and builder David S. Brehaut and was custom built for the original owner in 1890 and completed in 1894. It was most recently owned by George Gunn, published writer and Curator of the Alameda Museum for over 50 years. From the street, the eye catching decoration is extraordinary. Once through the elegant entryway, explore the Queen Anne's original floor plan and you’ll notice exquisite details including Lincrusta embossed wallpaper, wood floors, picture rails, high ceilings and original ceiling rosettes. The home also boasts a newer refrigerator and range in the kitchen, cement foundation, newer interior paint, roof and gutter replacement in 2013 plus window and furnace replacements in 2009. The low ceiling full length basement has excellent bonus space where the owner preferred to live. Just minutes away from convenient shopping, the beach, and fantastic schools, this location is on a quiet street in a lovely neighborhood. This house is an Alameda treasure as it's owner, George Gunn. You don't want to miss seeing this house. Open House Tuesday 1/24 from 11am to 1pm and Saturday & Sunday 1/28-1/29 and 2/4-2/5 2:00-4:00pm.
