4 Bedroom Tudor Located on Alameda's Historic "Christmas Tree Lane"!



Welcome home to this charming and spacious Tudor located on the historic 3200 block of Thompson Avenue, fondly known as “Christmas Tree Lane”.  This nostalgic street, located in the desirable Fernside District of Alameda’s East End, has been decorated for the Holidays since 1938!


With over 2100 square feet of living space, this beautiful and well loved home includes 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a living room with a wood burning flagstone fireplace, formal dining room, large kitchen, laundry room and far more storage and closet space than most vintage homes in Alameda!


The “retro” kitchen is incredibly spacious and cheerful with a large eat-in area that faces out to the backyard and plenty of windows to let all the light shine in.  The generous floor plan of the kitchen is conducive to creating a much larger, modern kitchen in the future. 


There is a full bathroom and bedroom located on the main floor, perfect for guests or a great office space, as this bedroom faces out towards the backyard.


The main floor bathroom is a “Mamie Pink” and grey tiled bathroom from the Mid Century.  This classic “retro” style has been making a comeback.  Check out www.SaveThePinkBathrooms.com to learn more about the history and hopeful future of these vintage bathrooms.


The upstairs has three bedrooms and a full bathroom as well as a number of storage areas or “nooks” in addition to all of the bedroom closets. 


The home sits on an incredibly spacious and useable 5,600 square foot lot.  There is a long driveway that leads to a large detached 2 car garage.  The backyard has a freshly installed drought and disease resistant lawn as well as other drought tolerant, low maintenance landscaping with drip line irrigation as well as a sprinkler system.  There is a gorgeous new fence that includes an arbor as well as a lovely patio area shaded by a wooden pergola.
