In the Heart of the Bay Area Lies an Island Community that Offers the Ideal Escape…Welcome to Grand Marina Village!

April-29-2011

Grand Marina Village by Warmington Residential California has that rare combination of amenities and location that takes you away from the grind and into the ‘ahh.’ A waterfront setting, a variety of boats bobbing in the estuary, three neighborhood parks, and a friendly small-town feel all contribute to the “get away from it all” ambiance that makes this new home community so special.


Set on the island of Alameda, Grand Marina Village actually is just a quick drive or ferry ride away from Oakland, San Francisco and the Silicon Valley for work or play. From this centralized location, it is easy to enjoy an amazing lifestyle opportunity while remaining close to these major employment hubs.

The historic island of Alameda is home to a quaint downtown and is known for its small town vibe, revitalized shopping districts and restaurants on Park Street and Webster Street, and its general walkability. This fact, and its slower pace and excellent schools, is attracting new buyers in ever increasing numbers. A high quality of life and more affordable home prices are big reasons for the appeal overall and for many, the chance to live in a waterfront community so close to the city is an opportunity that is simply too good to pass up.

Further contributing to the appeal of Grand Marina Village are prices that begin from the mid-$600,000’s and range up to the lower-$700,000’s.

The models and sales office are located at 1629 Cruiser Lane in Alameda and are open daily until 6 p.m. (GPS Address is 2043 Grand Street)

We are actively engaged in growing our presence throughout the Bay Area and are aggressively seeking new opportunities.
