An updated 1940’s 3 bed and 2 bath farmhouse cottage with all a home should be - light filled, gracious living spaces, ideal flow, and a strong rear yard connection. The home will surprise you and creates a living experience that balance comfort and utility. At the center is the updated kitchen around which all rooms are set. Designer colors, modern fixtures, and LED lighting mixed with original wood floors bring together modern convenience and charm. Most striking is the family room that spans across the rear and spills out to a huge rear deck. Overhead the deck’s arbor offers shade and a chance for warmth in the sun as you gather with friends, dine al fresco, or cozy up in a chair to read or relax. And still there’s more - a low maintenance garden, a garage for storage or possible office, and large side yards. Nestled in prime North and East with easy access to BART and freeway or a walk away to schools, restaurants, shopping, the Richmond Art Center, and so much more!
Once a center of industry and shipbuilding during World War II, the city of Richmond is focused on revitalization efforts that include a green revolution, with a solar-powered waste treatment plant; industrial printers; metal scrap recyclers; and manufacturers participating in green business initiatives. The city plans to add green jobs, create a cleaner community, and build a thriving tax base that can support better public services.
Richmond homes vary in style, including traditional, Cape Cod, contemporary, and French Country.
Local residents can participate in a composting program that collects food scraps in specially marked street-side containers and offers gardeners free compost for their backyard gardens. Richmond also recycles its old buildings, too; the historic Ford assembly plant near the port of Richmond was converted into the Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Historic Park, operated by the National Park Service.
Downtown is also experiencing revitalization, especially along Macdonald Avenue, the main commercial district that runs from 8th to 16th streets. The Richmond Main Street Initiative brings arts, music, dance, and theater to the area, transforming it into a pedestrian-friendly urban village.
Progressive politics are a part of life in Richmond. The city is the largest in the U.S. to have a Green Party mayor in Gayle McLaughlin.
