Sold $755,000 SOLD (List Price $749,000) - Townhome
Tucked away at the rear of a lush courtyard, 1863 Northshore is a quiet, light-filled, 4BD/3.5BA 2053 square foot townhome with modern open floor plan, hardwood floors, eat-in kitchen, and spacious owner’s suite. The home features a private en suite bedroom on the lower level and huge 4th bedroom on the top level with the potential to be configured as a second owner’s suite. Situated in the Marina Bay neighborhood, this lovely townhome is moments from the water where you can enjoy a morning jog or relaxing evening stroll along the SF Bay Trail, or just sit and watch as the sun sets over the horizon. Also conveniently close to the SF ferry landing for a smooth commute across the bay.
Behind a tranquil courtyard planted with Japanese maples and ferns, the front door opens onto a spacious open common area, including an expansive living and dining area lit by large windows, a generous eat-in chef’s kitchen with stone countertops, subway tile backsplash, gas range, ample cabinetry and counter space, and breakfast bar for informal meals. Outside, a private patio is surrounded by mature trees.
Up the stairway are two bedrooms, one the sunny owner’s suite featuring a glass-enclosed shower and a large walk-in closet with built-in storage system. The second bedroom is adjacent to a separate bath with shower over tub and pedestal sink. A conveniently placed stacking washer and dryer on this level eliminate the need to carry laundry up and down the stairs.
On the top level, a spacious loft space overlooking the treetops could serve as bed/sitting room combo, office, den, or family room, or could potentially be configured as a second owner’s suite.
The home’s lowest level includes a guest/au pair suite. The generous bedroom boasts an expansive closet ideal for storing larger items, a bath with a shower over tub, and internal access to a two-car garage.
Once a center of industry and shipbuilding during World War II, Marina Bay is now informally known as “The Richmond Riviera,” an upscale enclave located in Richmond’s protected Richmond Inner Harbor, with spectacular views and near-perfect sailing conditions. Home to Marina Bay Yacht Harbor and Yacht Club, the area also enjoys beautiful walks along the San Francisco Bay Trail, the wide-open Marina Bay Park within the Rosie the Riveter Memorial area, and the world-class Craneway Pavilion venue housed in the renovated historic Ford Assembly Plant built in 1931. In acknowledgment of the commuter nature of the Bay Area, Marina Bay has recently added a Ferry terminal and Tesla supercharger station.
