Alameda Bayfront Mansion California
Main Hall and Stairway

Buestad Construction continues to renovate this enduring 130-year-old home, originally built as a Queen Anne in 1893 and transformed to a Mediterranean style in the 1930s by a local shipping magnate. In this grand nine-fireplace mansion, Buestad has updated finishes, restored original woodwork, created three additions, developed existing basement space, and added outdoor terraces. Previously vacant and dilapidated for many years, this home is now a revitalized gem in its historic neighborhood.

A rich repository of houses dating back to the 1870s, the Gold Coast is Alameda’s most impressive neighborhood—an architectural icon of the era of commuter trains and ferries. The oak groves along the southern shore became the setting for dozens, then hundreds, of fine homes and gardens arrayed along tree-lined streets.
