Built-in 1898, by A.W. Pattiani, a prolific Bay Area architect/builder, the historic Alameda home at 1421 San Antonio is asking $2.69 million.

Throughout the first half of the 20th century it housed some illustrious Alameda residents. In the 1930s, George Wright (head attorney at S.F. law firm Wright Wright Larson) lived here. Later, the Krusi family, the son of whom made news in the Oakland Tribune in 1942 for barely escaping the war with his life. Then the Murphys, a family who had “14 kids, conducted political meetings in the living room, and Girl Scout meetings in the basement,” listing agent Herman Chan told SFGATE. After that it was the Moonies (Barbara Moonie raised her family here while also running Jay’s Coffee, Tea, and Treats a block away).




Today, the current sellers present a home they’ve “re-envisioned for 2020 while paying homage to its historic past.”

That past is shown in the colonial style still intact with the hardwood floors, leaded glass, built-ins and exquisitely carved banister and stairwell.

New features include an additional 1,000 square feet, a transformed backyard, updated baths, a modern chef’s kitchen, and a refinished attic and basement. The 4,500 square feet also features a library, six bedrooms, three full baths and two half baths.


There’s also a one-car garage on the .25 acre lot.

The home is adjacent to Franklin Park and a short hop to Alameda amenities.

In 2017, the property listed for $1.799 million and sold three months later for $1.6 million. Three years later, it’s asking $1 million more.
