Point Richmond condo description

Enjoy the best of two worlds!
If you enjoy eating at good restaurants, theater, museums, or just taking in the sights of one of the most beautiful cities in the United States AND at the same time living in an area that is a federally protected conservation area, complete with bike/walking trails along the bay, swimming pools, tennis courts, a complete fitness center, then our condo in Marina Bay is perfect.
We are located 20-30 minutes north of San Francisco by car and 20-30 minutes south of wine country. Berkeley and Oakland are 10-15 minutes away. The University of California at Berkeley is a 20 minute bike ride away.
Our condo is 1,000 square feet, with 2 bedrooms & 2 full baths. The kitchen is fully equipped, with a new convection cooktop stove. The pantry is stocked with basic cooking supplies. A side-by-side washer/dryer is available for your use. Relax in our outdoor patio, complete with a kiva for chilly evenings. For evenings that are colder, enjoy the wood burning fireplace in the living room. There is designated parking for one car and lots of guest parking spaces. The condo has two flat screen TV sets: a 47” ‘smart’ TV in the living room and a 32” in the guest bedroom. Both are swivel-mounted on the wall.
Our condo is part of gated community that has 435 units and is home to a mixture of people with families, single and retired people. It is quiet and safe.
In addition to the miles of beautiful bike/walking trails, the area is home to Rosie the Riveter National Monument, Point Isabel (which is one of the few off-leash dog parks), a marina, the port of Richmond, and is a major stop on the bird migration route. There is a wonderful playground bordering the marina and a park nearby where you can have a cookout and look over the bay at the skyline of San Francisco. The charming town of Point Richmond, with a variety of restaurants, historical sites and a playhouse is a short drive away.
All this at an affordable price!

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: The owners, Ann Sanders & Deborah Heller, both retired, are bi-coastal. We also have a home in Provincetown, MA. We plan to use our condo as well as rent it since we have grandchildren and friends in the Bay area. We look forward to having guests enjoy our home.

                  Why Point Richmond:
                  We were attracted to the unit because of the 2 BR/2BA, lovely patio, fireplace, and parking right outside the front door. It is sunny and bright, has comfortable space with privacy if friends come to visit or 2 couples choose to rent. We also like the opportunities for walking, swimming (two pools and hot tubs) and a well equipped gym. In addition, it has easy access to San Francisco & other East Bay communities, as well as wine country to the north. Lots of good shopping and restaurants in Oakland, Berkeley, El Cerrito and Richmond, an easy car ride away. San Francisco is 25-30 minutes away.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The condo is a corner unit with parking right out front. It is comfortably furnished with Cable TV, wireless. The kitchen is equipped for people who like to cook and the outside patio is great for breakfast on a sunny morning. Benefits also include quiet neighborhood, pool, hot tub & fitness center plus 24-hour security. Wood burning fireplace in unit, mature trees, bay shore walks, beaches, parks, fishing, ships/tugboat viewing in harbor, extensive Bay Trail, short distance to Restaurant Salute, picnics & BBQ on Monument Green, off-leash dog walking at Pt. Isabel, live theater & museums. Sailboats/kayaks are easily launched into the protected harbor and guided trips to nearby islands are possible via East Bay Regional Park system.
