This is the perfect home for lovers of vintage homes who want the look and historic heritage of a Craftsman bungalow, but also appreciate a contemporary floor plan with modern amenities. Built in 1922 and located just blocks to Otis Elementary and Lincoln Middle schools, this charming split-level Craftsman bungalow has wonderful appeal both inside and out! Located in a desirable East End neighborhood filled with many houses from the same era, the home features two bedrooms, one half and one full bathroom, an open living room/dining room, eat-in kitchen, a mudroom, laundry room and a 1-car garage.

The home's exterior has a classic Craftsman facade with multiple overhanging roof lines and a big front porch with hallmark inverted columns, while the interior retains plenty of vintage charm blended with 21st century updates and aesthetics. The spacious open living room/dining room combination is a perfect mix of past and present with vintage hardwood floors and crown moulding that's perfectly complemented with new light fixtures, a contemporary fireplace surround, recessed lighting and oversized picture windows for lots of bright, natural light. The kitchen, situated behind the living/dining room, includes a breakfast nook, and has been updated with an attractive Arabesque porcelain tile backsplash. A half bath and laundry/mudroom sits off of the kitchen, and includes a backdoor for easy access to the backyard.

A bedroom and a bathroom are to the right, off a short hallway between the kitchen and dining room. The bedroom has a vintage hardwood floor and roomy closet, and the bathroom has been remodeled to include a vaulted ceiling with a skylight and a combination bathtub/shower with elegant porcelain tiles on the surround and floor. The light-filled primary bedroom is on a split upper level over the garage and features an oak floor, crown moulding, a spacious closet and multiple windows overlooking the pretty front yard. ​

Situated on a large corner lot, the spacious backyard offers lots of room to play and garden, and includes mature citrus and camellia trees, a paved patio and a large lawn. A new, horizontal redwood fence provides an updated urban look as well as abundant privacy. ​

1131 Fountain is perfectly situated to take full advantage of all that Alameda has to offer. Walk or bike to top-ranked schools, and enjoy the close proximity to Encinal Market and the South Shore Center. The San Francisco Bay Trail, Alameda Beach, and the many attractions on downtown Park Street are all less than a mile away. This beautifully preserved, artfully reimagined Craftsman home is a treasure in every way!
