1829 Versailles just underwent a massive, fully permitted renovation. This former single level (also level–in/level-out accessible) office building with rich local history is reimagined, modernized and beautifully transformed into an elegant home with flexible floor plan ideally suited to multi-generational living. Timeless elements of interior design have been thoughtfully interwoven with modern systems and aesthetics creating a “NEW TRADITIONAL” home. The rich palate of oak, bamboo, mixed metals, cream and crisp white punctuated with gray and soft denim blues creates an elegant yet relaxed environment offering all the luxuries of today's lifestyle. While respecting its 1930 Mediterranean provenance, the home pivots from the conventional the moment one enters the front door. The open plan main living area is stunningly bright, thanks to the soaring ceilings, skylight and windows along the front and the side of the home. The sunny kitchen area is perfectly counterbalanced with white shaker-style cabinetry, premium quartz backsplash and countertops, Bertazzoni range, hand-hammered Moroccan brass pendant lights and sleek matte black cabinet pulls. The gorgeous 11’ island with waterfall countertop and ample seating makes this kitchen as functional as it is beautiful. Opposite the kitchen is the dining area with custom French doors that open to the side yard. It’s the perfect place to enjoy Alameda’s temperate weather with friends and family for alfresco dining or afternoon entertaining. The dining area also overlooks the front garden with its new raised planter bed, to encourage your green thumb. From the kitchen step into the office/pantry area bathed in light, thanks to the skylight. Past the office, the spacious and handsome black and white hall bath is an ode to mid-century design shared by two bedrooms. Opposite the office area is the dreamy primary bedroom with walk-in closet and luxurious Zen spa-inspired bathroom. Here you will find Italian porcelain tile walls & floors, vanity with quartz countertop, custom Art Deco era inspired pendant lights, free-standing soaking tub and separate glass enclosed shower, making self-care an opulent experience. Toward the back of the house, the fourth bedroom and bath is configured as a European-inspired studio that looks out on the backyard and is a flexible space with private entrance - adaptable to whatever life might bring. This terrific home is situated on a sundrenched 4,700 square foot level lot in the east-end Fernside neighborhood; so convenient to the Bridgeside Shopping Center, and a short stroll to the historic theater and the shops and restaurants on downtown Park Street. You won’t want to miss the twice-weekly farmer’s market, or the beach with popular wind surfing. In addition, Alameda features neighborhood parks, award-winning schools, bicycle and walking paths and excellent transportation options (3 ferry terminals, transbay express bus, close to BART & Hwy 880, plus many parts of the island have separate bike lanes). This home is the epitome of casual sophistication and elevated living - you’ll never want to leave the island!
