Alameda is just southwest of Oakland. It is bounded by the Oakland Estuary, San Leandro Bay, and the San Francisco Bay. Alameda is an island city full of tree-lined streets, kitschy shops, diverse architecture, and recreational opportunities that include community parks, golf courses, beaches, and bike trails. Somewhat isolated from the hustle and bustle of the East Bay, but within a reasonable commute of other East Bay cities and San Francisco, Alameda is considered by many to be an ideal bedroom community.
It has friendly neighborhoods, a certified farmers’ market, excellent elementary schools, and fun-filled festivals and celebrations. All of which helps to make Alameda a family-friendly community. Modest mom and pop stores, local coffee shops, and independently owned restaurants offer a small town atmosphere; while the Alameda Towne Centre provides the convenience of a bustling retail district with big name stores and services.
From Alameda’s older neighborhoods on Fernside and East End to its newest housing project called Alameda Point on what was once the U.S. Naval Air Station at the West end of the island, home styles in the City of Alameda are diverse. Whether it is stately Victorians, California bungalows, traditional Queen Anne’s, or classic yet elegant East Lake homes they sit side-by-side. On the Northern edge of the island is a modest neighborhood of older builder spec homes, while on the Southside is an award-winning development of waterfront townhouses and condos.
The real estate market in Alameda boasts an eclectic mix of homes and condos for sale. Whether your taste runs to the red-tiled roof of a Mission Revival, the hand-crafted shingles of a Craftsman bungalow, or a stylish mid-century condominium on the San Francisco Bay, you may find it in Alameda.
