This statuesque Queen Anne residence was designed and built by Joseph Leonard who was responsible for some of Alameda’s most impressive Victorian homes. Leonard built so many homes in the neighborhood that surrounded the train station at Chestnut and Encinal that the area became known as Leonardville. This home is a bit further East but it is in a remarkable state of preservation with loads of original detail both inside and out. It is a nice testament to Leonard’s immense talent, the impact of which is still felt today on both sides of the bay.
