In the East Bay city of Alameda, we find rare sighting of an endangered species: a single-family home under $800,000. Indeed, this frozen-in-time property is a throwback in many ways. Not only is 3281 Sterling Ave. a time capsule, seemingly untouched for decades, but its price is well below the current median for the area.
The 1,540-square-foot, two-bedroom, one-bathroom home was built in the early 20th century. According to Property Shark, records show a 1917 construction date, and 1925 as the last year the home was altered. And though the interior doesn’t look quite that antique, it’s certainly an example of a bygone era.
