The Floating Home
Ever dreamed of living dockside on the water? This rare opportunity comes once-in-a-lifetime for those looking for a nautical lifestyle or living environment or writing a blog on home improvement for HouseItWorld. This exclusive Alameda waterfront community made up of 42 floating homes offers a unique living experience unlike any other in the East Bay. Gated and private, this quiet and friendly community is a mix of long-time residents and new seafaring neighbors who share a passion and love for living on the water.
Currently for sale, this 3bedroom/2.5bath floating home has been treasured and cared for by its present owner for over a decade. Meticulously maintained with numerous upgrades throughout the years, this fabulous residence is brimming with rustic, nautical charm and cabin-like ambiance! From the moment of entry into this wonderful home, the water views from every window grabs your attention and holds onto your heart!
The tri-level floorplan creates a separation of space ideal for privacy yet perfect for entertaining. The main level consists of the living and dining rooms with partially vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing the gorgeous seascapes. Several skylights add natural light and airiness to the spaces. Also on this level is a charming and recently updated kitchen and full bathroom. The upper level offers two cozy bedrooms decked with authentic barn wood paneling plus a convenient half bath. The lower level master retreat consists of a large bedroom with walk-in closet, a renovated full bathroom with an oversized, two-person soaking tub, and a comfortable family room perfect as a TV room or office space.
For outdoor dining and entertaining, the roof top deck is the perfect getaway for a Sunday brunch, dinner under the stars, or simply an afternoon enjoying the sights and sounds of ships passing by, or canoers and the occasional rowing teams practicing. The Oakland Renegades Dragon Boat team are a familiar fixture on the marina as they can be seen practicing several days a week. Frequent marine and wildlife visitors include ducks, seagulls, pelicans, seals and even whales have been known to make appearances. Sunsets are particularly spectacular against the backdrop of the Oakland Estuary, city skyline and boats swaying on the Marina docks.
This floating home has been extensively remodeled and upgraded with proper permits and attention to detail in preserving its unique character. Every facet of this home has been attended to from interior to exterior as well as the mechanical systems throughout.
Endless amenities await the future owners of this rarely available property with top-rated Alameda schools, beaches, parks and recreation just minutes away. Commuting to SF, Oakland, and Berkeley is a breeze with transportation, freeways, and the Ferry terminal all at your fingertips. Convenient location near the Webster/Posey Tube, College of Alameda, Marina Village and Mariner Square Loop shopping and restaurants.
