251 Lina Ave, Alameda, CA 94501
251 Lina Avenue is a wonderful, traditional-style, 4 bedroom home with a coveted location facing the lawn and play area in Alameda’s Bayport community. Suited for today’s living, it has a unique floor plan with over 2925 square feet of well-designed living space. It’s been freshly painted in neutral, designer colors and has new upgraded carpet throughout the upstairs.
As you enter, an impressive mission style corridor runs the length of the home, past the reading alcove just opposite the inner courtyard, to the kitchen and family room at the rear. The two front rooms of the home are elegant and cheerful - the formal living room to the right surrounded by windows with a view of the inner courtyard and a fireplace, and the formal dining room to the left. One of many unique spaces is the reading alcove, midway down the corridor with a courtyard view. With lovely French doors that open to the private and protected courtyard, with a quality stone patio and matching built-in seating, the courtyard is an integral part of the home. The rooms connect seamlessly around the courtyard - inviting the outside in and making it accessible for meals and entertaining.
At the rear of the home is a fantastic sized kitchen with an inviting eating area open to the family room. The family room has a courtyard on one side and a small private backyard on the other. The kitchen, a cook’s dream, has a large center island, maple cabinetry with a full pantry, and 4 separate workstations with granite countertops. Stainless appliances include double GE ovens, a built-in microwave, refrigerator, 5-burner gas range, and an Elkay 2-bowl sink. Adjacent to the kitchen is another unique area - an office workstation and a large food service area with full cabinetry and granite countertops. Ideally suited for serving buffet-style meals, storing kitchen gadgets, flower arranging, and other entertaining tasks.
Upstairs is the luxurious master suite, three additional bedrooms, a full bath, and laundry room. The master suite at the front of the home, has a spacious balcony, with a French door and windows that face the lawn. You can watch neighbors enjoying impromptu visits and kids playing volleyball. The master suite has a comfortable sitting area and an enormous master bath. The soaking tub in the center is flanked by two separate vanities with an additional dressing vanity adjacent to the full-size walk-in closet. The additional three bedrooms at the other end of the hall are spacious – two with double closets and one with a walk-in closet. The shared bath is centrally located with double vanities and a shower over the tub. Conveniently located at the end of the hall is a full-sized laundry room with an over-sized vanity and sink and ample space for folding and sorting clothes.
The home sits in Alameda’s west-end, which has been transformed over the last decade. Bayport, the most established community, borders the expanding Alameda College campus, Alameda Landing Shopping Center (Target and Safeway are the anchor stores), and Alameda Point (former Navy base) surrounded by San Francisco bay. Ruby Bridges Elementary School is at the center of the community. Alameda Point has tons of open space for exploring and bike riding with new recreation spots popping up frequently. Some of the best San Francisco views are from the water’s edge at the Point. Enjoy a ride down Spirit Alley which boasts Hangar Vodka, Brix Beverage, Urban Legend Cellars, Rock Wall Winery, Almanac Beer Co., the Bladium, soccer fields, the Alameda Antique Faire, boating and more. The Alameda Ferry to San Francisco is minutes away, as well as the Posey Tube for easy freeway access.
