Beautiful Bay-Front Contemporary Home in East End Alameda

OVERVIEW: 3 BED 3 BATH | 2-car garage | 1,912 SF | LOT SIZE 7,000 SF useable, not recorded

An extremely rare opportunity, this energy-efficient, bay-front home showcases large contemporary living spaces maximizing the glorious views outside.  Inside and out, one can soak in the maritime scenes—piers spanning onto the Bay, sailboats tacking across the water, and gulls drifting in the wind. Plus, firework shows light up the sky over the Oakland Coliseum and Arena by night. Spectacular!  

Main-Level Living – Gleaming hardwood floors run wall to wall in the open, indoor-outdoor layout.  

  • Large combined living and formal dining room, enriched and warmed by a grand wood and brick fireplace. 
  • Sliding doors open to a fully enclosed sunroom, perfect for devouring a book on a weekend day.  
  • Up-to-date kitchen marrying sage-colored cabinetry with dark granite counters and a gray subway tile backsplash. High-end appliances include a Jenn-Air down draft glass-top range and newer dishwasher. Peninsula bar seating, connected casual dining area, brick bench seating, and a second gas fireplace make this space a social center of the home.  
  • Large glass sliding doors to the backyard patio, creating exceptional indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.  
  • Out back, the magnificent backyard incorporates a large patio and barbecue area; a beautiful flat lawn; lemon, fig, orange, plum, and persimmon trees; and a winding stone pathway leading to the shoreline’s edge and private dock (attached lower rowing and kayaking dock/shared with neighbor/completely rebuilt in 2015).
  • Completing the lower level is closet, large pantry, and full bath.  

Upper-Level Living and Views - Situated to keep loved ones close, upstairs includes two spacious bedrooms with large closets featuring automated lighting, the master suite, and an ultra-charming colorful vintage bath. Taking full advantage of the views, the master implements large windows, a skylight, private deck, two closets, and dual sinks and a Toto washlet/bidet. A recirculating system even brings instant hot water to the bath.

Additional exceptional property features include dual pane windows, two sets of washers and dryers, storage in garage attic, solar tubes for natural lighting, homeowner-owned solar system, Level II EV Charger, photovoltaic roof tiles, and newer furnace, electrical, and plumbing.

Feeling like a seaside getaway, 1530 Eastshore Drive also quickly accesses grocery shopping, excellent schools, parks, running and biking trails, and all the restaurants and boutiques on Park Street one could desire. This home truly is a must-see!  


Alameda was once a peninsula connected to the Oakland docks. In 1902, a canal was dredged to enable easier shipping access, and that turned Alameda into an island. A little off the beaten track, Alameda has a laid-back vibe all its own. Despite its 80,000 residents, there's still a small-town feeling in Alameda. A 4th of July Parade, complete with horse-drawn carriages, embodies the small-town feel in Alameda, which has preserved much of its Victorian housing stock, cottages, and central, walkable shopping district along Park Street. The Alameda Theater on Park Street was restored to its art deco glory. Civic pride runs high here; formerly the Carnegie Library, the Alameda Free Library was transformed into a multimillion-dollar showplace that earned a Silver LEED certification. Kids play soccer on former parade grounds of the converted army barracks. Crown Memorial State Beach and Shoreline Drive attract wind surfers. 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.
