1308 Crown is an exquisite 3BD/2.5BA waterfront townhome nestled within a private gated community on Alameda’s shoreline, steps from tranquil parks and beaches. Showcasing the very best in up-to-the-minute designer upgrades and stellar bay views, this 1,946 square foot Crown Harbor home dazzles from the moment you enter it.

On the first level of 1308 Crown, you will find a dramatic common area that the home’s current owners renovated extensively in order to capitalize on the incredible view just outside the home’s large, water-facing windows; the view crosses Ballena Bay to Crab Cove and stretches down to the San Mateo Bridge and South Bay. This show-stopping, versatile common area, which the current owners refer to as ‘the great room,’ is warmed by white oak floors and a large wall-mounted fireplace; the common area easily accommodates spacious living and dining areas.

Also within this inviting open living floor plan of 1308 Crown’s entry level is the home’s sleek, fully updated eat-in gourmet kitchen, which was designed to the specifications of the owner, a professional chef. It features gleaming stainless steel appliances, expansive natural stone countertops, ample cabinetry, and a delightful broad greenhouse window, through which you can take in the amazing view, installed over a deep sink.

The first level of 1308 Crown includes two beautiful patios. The front patio, facing the water, was recently upgraded with Trex decking and is ideal for taking in dramatic sunsets, while the spacious, sheltered rear patio, which includes slate tiles and a fountain, is perfect for quiet relaxation and contemplation. The rear patio is accessible via a welcoming den with a wet bar and shining built-in cabinetry, and from it, you can access the home’s attached two-car garage. A laundry room and a powder room are also conveniently located on the home’s entry level.

By way of a floating staircase lit by skylight, you can explore 1308 Crown’s upper level, which features a spacious and elegant owner’s suite with high ceilings, a large picture window overlooking the bay, two large closets, and a light-filled, beautifully remodeled modern bath with luxury features including an expansive quartz vanity, dual sinks, heated floor, and spacious shower lit by a half-circle window above it. The owner’s suite also has a charming private patio overlooking the water. On the upper level you will also find two additional bedrooms and a stylish hall bath with a shower-over-tub.

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.
