Exceptional Waterfront Home with 50’ Boat Dock

All maritime pursuits are possible with this dramatic 4,500 square foot custom built 3 story home located over the water on the San Francisco Bay with 360 degree views of Berkeley, the Bay Bridge, San Francisco, Angel Island and Mt. Tam in Marin.  This true waterfront home offers a 50’ boat dock and a deck extending out over the marina.  Imagine the entertaining you can do from the third floor, which has a spacious open floor plan, a chef’s kitchen with polished concrete countertops and expansive dining room and living room spaces, all with panoramic views of the SF Bay and the marina.  Just off this level is a large deck with access to the private boat dock below. Just step aboard, cast off, and get your boat out into the Bay in minutes or drop in your paddleboard and take a spin around the cove.

The deluxe master bedroom suite is also located on the third floor and it too has incredible views of the SF Bay Bridge.  Connecting the floors is one of the home’s most distinguishing features: a steel and concrete spiral staircase surrounded by windows that frame the panoramas.

Neighborhood:

Point Richmond is a hidden gem with luxury homes sporting some of the most dramatic views in all of the Bay area. Loaded with history and sitting on a peninsula surrounded by calm waters, this community is home to both commuters and boating enthusiasts. The downtown area has an abundance of shops and restaurants and has a quaint small seaside town feel: The Mac hotel, The Up and Under Pub and Little Louie’s Café are just a few popular favorites. Other interesting places in Point Richmond include The Plunge, a renovated historic swim center, The Golden State Model Railroad Museum and the Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline, with miles of shoreline trails and activities.

Neighborhood


Point Richmond

 

Point Richmond, also sometimes referred to locally as The Point, is a neighborhood near the eastern end of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge, between Interstate 580 and the San Francisco Bay. Its compact size and many historic buildings give it a quaint "small town" feel that has also been described as "highbrow".

Originally a tiny village surrounded by farm lands, Point Richmond was Richmond's central downtown area from the late 19th century until the early 20th century, when the present downtown superseded it as the busiest part of town. Since then, its trademark "mom-and-pop" shops have survived and thrived.  The Point Richmond Historic District has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1978.

Waterfront

Further along lies Brickyard Cove and the Richmond Yacht Club, one of many marinas in the city. There are condominiums and brand new luxury homes terraced into the hills as well as homes built over the water on piles along two spits.

One of the last remaining portions of the channel and marshlands that once separated the island of Point Richmond with the mainland is the Herman Slough Creek in the north end of the neighborhood along with the Santa Rita Channel where the marinas are now located.

The Plunge is a local landmark swim center, reopened in August 2010 after remodeling. The nearby hill is Nicholl Knob, which is part of the Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline. In the historic downtown section there is the Point Richmond History Association museum, a small museum of photos and artifacts that are dedicated to local history. There is a tunnel through this hill named the Ferry Point tunnel, since trains used to drop passengers off here to continue on to San Francisco by ferry. Part of the area on the bay side of the tunnel is known as Brickyard Cove owing to the brickyard which used to operate in the area. Point Richmond is home to Keller Beach, one of the several publicly accessible beaches in Richmond, and nearby is a picnic area and parking lot. Across from the picnic area is the Golden State Model Railroad Museum. Continuing along the road is Brickyard Cove a housing development in the area of a former brickyard. Nearby, at the end of Dornan Drive is the S.S. Red Oak Victory ship in former WWII Kaiser Shipyard 3, which is part of the Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Historical Park; it is a restored Victory ship built in the city during World War II.
