1241 Otis is a classic single-level 3+BD/2BA Mid-century home on Alameda’s famed lagoon, with a charming enclosed back waterfront garden with private dock, spacious vaulted-ceilinged common areas, and stylish accents throughout. This expertly designed and eminently livable home effortlessly marries the timeless charm, thoughtfulness, and economy of Eichler-style architecture with the languid calm of being on the water.

This home ushers you into its enchanting world immediately, as a skylight-topped, plant-lined, sunporch-like entryway beckons you inside. This space immediately seduces you with its airy indoor-outdoor tone; offering internal access to the spacious attached single-car garage and workshop, this ingeniously designed space imbues the home with a seductively vacation-like feel, a theme strongly echoed by the lush rear waterfront garden.

Entering the wide-open common areas, you will be greeted by a rare combination of warmth and light. The beautifully proportioned interior is framed by soaring vaulted ceilings, elegant engineered hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, and period stained-glass window details, while the updated chef’s kitchen features natural stone countertops and subway-tiled backsplashes, a porcelain-enamel sink, gas range, stainless-steel refrigerator and other appliances, bar counter, and chic modern cabinets and cabinet hardware. Directly ahead, through the dining room, you will glimpse sliding glass doors opening onto the peaceful back garden and patio.

Off the common areas, you will find three bedrooms, including one en-suite; two updated full baths; and a special surprise: an ingeniously situated sunroom off the en-suite bedroom with a large walk-in closet and its own sliding glass doors to the outside, perfect for a home office or reading nook. With glass doors framing the back patio on two sides, this home fully embraces its sublime indoor-outdoor feel and seamless connection to nature.

The expansive covered rear patio will make you want to dine al fresco every day, while the garden’s built-in brick grill, complete with counters and storage, make this the ideal place to entertain friends for an afternoon barbecue. Gazing past your private boat dock over the water and onto the palms and other homes dotting the shore, it is easy to forget you are just minutes from all of the wonderful shops, restaurants, and amenities Alameda has to offer as well as Downtown Oakland and the ferry to San Francisco. Sparkling with Mid-century personality and waterfront charm, 1241 Otis truly has it all. This gorgeous classic home is ready to be yours.
