Beautiful Farmhouse- Sabbatical Rental

Wedge Victorian-Sabbatical Rent


about this home's










Two-bedroom Victorian house with finished basement spaces and perfect yard for kids and entertaining. Our family will be on a sabbatical year for 2023-24 and we are looking for someone to rent our house from August 2023 to July 2024.

On a cul-de-sac filled with welcoming neighbors and kids close to Alameda’s downtown Park Street, our charming Victorian is fully furnished and ready for you! The house consists of a spacious living room with comfy king-sized sleeper couch and a wood burning stove separated from the dining room by pocket doors. The dining room has an expandable table that can seat up to 8. One and a half bathrooms and the gorgeous kitchen make up the rest of the first floor. The kitchen has a built-in table that can be extended or collapsed for more floor space, two ovens, and a professional gas range. I love to cook, and you can see evidence of this in the well-appointed range of kitchen implements and the shelves full of cookbooks and the high-quality equipment, ceramics, and glassware that are included.

The second floor consists of two bedrooms, one with a lofted single bed and play structure. This room would easily fit an additional bed or crib below or a desk for an older child to use for schoolwork. The primary bedroom has a queen-sized bed, two large dressers, and two closets. The room is light-filled and airy. Both bedrooms have window AC units and ceiling fans for hot days.

The basement has several rooms with ample storage, including a tool cabinet, sporting and recreation equipment (feel free to use our bikes and cornhole games!) a laundry area with washer and dryer and a chest freezer, a work/craft space, and a finished library/movie room with a large couch, projector, and retractable screen.

The ¼ acre backyard has ample space, including a wisteria-covered gazebo with a dining area seating eight and a nearby barbeque, a lush lawn, and a back space with raised beds, a paved area with lounger chairs and a fire pit, a full-sized trampoline, artist studio, and children’s play structure. The back porch is delightful for sitting and enjoying morning coffee while listening to the birds. The yard has two prolific apple trees, a fig tree that produces lots of figs in early fall, and many large mature trees providing shade and privacy in the back.

The entire house is filled with art and thoughtful details. We have a crib and baby gates if you have a young child, and we welcome families with dogs. However, the nature of old Victorians means that there’s lots of steep steps in the house, and it wouldn’t be a good fit for someone with mobility issues.

This house would be perfect for a family with one or two kids who are on sabbatical or who are relocating to the Bay Area and looking for a place while house hunting. The house is also walkable to an excellent elementary school, with middle and high schools a short bike ride away. It’s about 20 minutes to UC Berkeley or CSUEB (depending as always on traffic), and if you are working in San Francisco, the ferry is very convenient and takes around half an hour to go from the port in Alameda to the Embarcadero. We would consider including a car in the rental as well. We look forward to sharing our home with you and hope that you love it as much as we have!

Alameda began as a peninsula just south of Oakland and is now an East Bay island with a laid-back feeling all its own. You will find a variety of homes and condos for sale in Alameda including cozy apartments, spacious single family homes that have been fully renovated, and gorgeous luxury mansions where no expense was spared. With more than 10,000 buildings constructed before 1930, there is a rich and varied architectural heritage in the area playing a role in Alameda's real estate market conditions. Historic Queen Anne's, more than 1,500 ornately decorated Victorians, and California Craftsmans are some of the most desirable homes here along its tree-lined streets. Although Alameda is a little off the beaten path, the city has a laid-back vibe all its own. One of the unique elements of Alameda is its population: with only 80,000 residents, the population density is less than half of San Francisco, and similar to the density found in Oakland. Alameda is incredibly walkable. When locals want to explore the various shopping, landmarks, museums, and dining, they usually head to Park Street. Start your day with a visit to the Alameda Museum. Since 1948, the museum has preserved the rich history of this unique island city and offers both locals and tourists an opportunity to learn more about the great island of Alameda. After a day at the museum, there are plenty of great restaurants to choose from, including: Monkey King Pub and Grub: Featuring a unique mix of Asian-fusion cuisine, crafty cocktails, and delicious draft beer, this is also a great happy hour hangout. La Penca Azul: A family-owned favorite for over 25 years, they are also well- known for their taco truck. Original Red Onion: If you love great, locally-sourced food in a family-friendly atmosphere, you will absolutely love this restaurant. Civic pride runs high in Alameda, and many of the city’s older buildings have been fully restored or repurposed. The Alameda Theater on Park Street was restored to its art deco glory, while the Alameda Free Library was transformed from the Carnegie Library into a multimillion-dollar showplace that earned a Silver LEED certification. Alameda is also a great place for outdoor activities. Robert W Crown Memorial State Beach is the perfect place for wind-surfing and taking a morning run near the beach. Alameda is a great place to live if you love a vibrant atmosphere with plenty of festivals and activities to enjoy. One of the trademark events in Alameda is the 4th of July Parade, which features horse-drawn carriages and truly embodies the small-town feel of Alameda. Other popular events and festivals in Downtown include a Spring Festival in May and a Classic Car Show in October. No matter the time of year, there is always something fun happening in Alameda.
