319 Robert Louis Stevenson Avenue BEST OF ALL WORLDS: ALAMEDA BAYPORT$1,195,000
319 Robert Louis Stevenson Avenue
Wherever you look in the Bay Area, it would be hard to find a newer home, grand in scale, in a small town neighborhood, close to coffee and yet 2 minutes to Jack London Square, 5 minutes to the Beach and 20 minutes to downtown San Francisco.
But that would describe exactly the neighborhood of Bayport in Alameda and the home at 319 Robert Louis Stevenson. The home is one of the larger homes in Bayport, which is part of Alameda’s burgeoning West End, along with Alameda Landing and the new neighborhoods of Alameda Point.
As one of the higher end homes of Bayport, 319 Robert Louis Stevenson was designed to be grand in scale. Indeed, within its over 3,400 square feet, it has the large spacious rooms, high ceilings and architectural details reminiscent of Alameda’s historical homes.
At the same time, it has the indoor/outdoor flow and amenities of today’s most contemporary homes. The living room, dining room, kitchen/family room all open through French doors to a lush courtyard. Off the courtyard is also a private guest suite for au pairs or returning millennials. The large kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite, a breakfast bar and lunch area opens to a private garden.
Upstairs there’s a library loft, and a magnificent master retreat with his and her walk in closets. Two other large bedrooms round out this grand home. Perfect for a family of today of any definition.

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.
