Where: 1200 Saint Charles Street in Alameda (listing | virtual tour)
Often called the “finest estate in Alameda,” 1200 Saint Charles Street has a new superlative: the highest priced listing in Alameda history. The Colonial revival is listed at $3,300,000 by David Gunderman and Andrew Raskopf of the Alain Pinel Realtors Oakland Hills – Montclair office.
Situated on around three-quarters of an acre in the heart of the Gold Coast overlooking a lagoon, the grounds feature a swimming pool, sport/tennis court, guest house, adult-sized Victorian playhouse on own foundation, detached garage, and lush landscaping. However, the true jewel is the four-level 6,000-7,000+/- square mansion built in 1898 by Marcuse and Remmel. Every square inch has been thoughtfully and sumptuously designed by the home owner and notable interior designer. With two to three million dollars spent renovating and updating the home, the trophy estate honors the historical elements with some of the most exquisite period details while including modern amenities.
The estate’s artful design has garnered attention in the past, having been highlighted in several publications and tours, including: The San Francisco Chronicle, Alameda Magazine, Alameda Historical Home Tour, St. Joe’s Garden Tour. The estate has also hosted numerous community events, including the Alameda Hostpital Board Annual Luncheon and public school fundraisers.
