From Alameda's Oldest to its Newest

Besides this weeks Alameda Housing Inventory report, 94501 Real Estate takes a look at one of Alameda’s first homes and a look at the block that wants to be Alameda’s newest housing development. Like every Monday, the listing and Inventory are below.

We feature a home, on December 5, in the Alameda Snapshot feature that has been identified as Alameda’s oldest home. The Webster House went on the market this week for $1,795,000. The listing description: Architecturally & historically significant Webster house bed & breakfast inn is offered for sale! 1854 gothic revival house was designed by Andrew Jackson Downing. Designed as a single family home, 6bd, 6ba, 7 fireplaces and a great karma nestled in a central alameda location.

The Webster House

This is a Bed and Breakfast on Versailles is #22 on the monument list, is Alameda's oldest home and dates back to the year a portion of Alameda was incorporated.

This is the second home on the Alameda Monument list to be place on the market in the last three months.

The newest proposal for a housing development is the Boatworks project. The project is located on Clement to the Estuary from Oak to Elm Streets. I thought I would let readers see the current state of the site it a short video. The curb appearance of the site has not changed much since in the 30-years I can remember.

For more information on the proposal and the political implications of the project see: Blogging Bayport or The Island’s report.

  1. Wow. Apparently that area has become a dumping ground for old sofas.

    The plastic chairs were a nice touch though.
