Sterling Avenue - An Alameda Neighborhood

Sterling Avenue – An Alameda Neighborhood is one of the many picturesque neighborhoods in the lovely City of Alameda.  Alameda has been named one of the 100 "best places to live" in America by Money Magazine. That is due to the small town feel of the island community.  Alameda also has a high median family income, a large number of educational institutions nearby, more than double the number of restaurants and libraries as the "best places average," excellent air quality, and better than average weather.

Sterling Avenue homes come on the market infrequently.  The street is just one block long with many charming one level bungalows sprinkled with a few 2 story homes.

Sterling Avenue homes sale statistics show that only two homes sold in the last two years, one a split level bungalow with three bedrooms and one bath in excellent condition which sold for $605,000.  The other bungalow was a single level 3 bedroom one bath which needed some updating and sold for $480,000. Both homes were not on the market very long, less than 20 days.  Because of the desirability of the neighborhood house here don’t last long if priced right.

Many Sterling Avenue homes are on the Historical Building Study List which means that ”they are a historic resource distinguished by the architectural, historical, or environmental significance, eligible for inclusion in the State Historic Resources Inventory, and of secondary priority for inclusion on the list of Alameda Historical Monuments. Many of these are also eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Others would be eligible if design integrity were restored.”

Sterling Avenue even has existing streets lights which are also on the City of Alameda’s Historical Lights list.  Being on the historical list means that any changes to the home must be reviewed by the City of Alameda’s Design Review Board.

 

Sterling Avenue is just one of the many attractive neighborhoods found in Alameda. 

 

Alameda is a wonderful island community.  It is known for its fine, tree lined streets, lovely neighborhoods and beautiful Victorian homes.  Email me for a free map of Alameda Neighborhoods.

I love that second home.  It is so cool looking.  A floor plan would be really cool to see.

Hi Evelyn -- what a great way to highlight the Sterling Avenue neighborhood in Alameda.  You captured the feel of the Craftsman influence and I can see why there is such a low turnover of inventory.

Good photos. I remember two of our friends who lived there, and who have since left the area. THey loved that street, and so do I. I especially like that it's one of a few streets where they still have the good ol block parties.

Kevin:  Sterling Avenue has so many charming bungalows. I haven't actually see floor plans of the homes.  I need to do more research.

Michael:  I hope the picture convey how nice the street is and how well maintained the homes are.

Pacita:  Yes, the block parties and the annual yard sales.  The street is pretty close knit.
