The Cutest Queen Anne Victorian in Alameda Has All the Right Details

By

Tucked in a corner of tranquil Alameda sits a quaint Victorian in shades of lavender, sky, and maroon. Beyond its sweet demeanor, this charming little abode has much to offer—it's all in the details.

Remember our recent story on the insanely lavish Victorian homes currently on the market? This pretty little number would fit right in. The 1905 Queen Anne Victorian, designed and built by David Brehaut, has some seriously elaborate architectural elements, including a stained glass foyer and an elegant staircase with a carved balustrade.


Each room has its own personality with a different hue and feel, pulled together by rich tones and intricate minutiae—a moss green living room ahs a reading nook with bay windows; a fireplace warms the cranberry-swathed dining room; and a mustard tone wakes up the breakfast room and one of the bedrooms. The old carriage house makes for a fine one-car garage, even if your wheels aren't horse-drawn.

A certain refined coziness exudes from the home—think of it like a country bed and breakfast. As a house that's elegant but doesn't take itself too seriously, it stands to be versatile—hold dinner parties and game nights in the formal parlor and dining room, or sip on wine in the sun-soaked backyard and private garden reminiscent of an intimate European cafe patio. It's the perfect space for entertaining as well as for luxuriating with a cup of tea and a book.
