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.”
