Situated just moments from Joaquin Miller Park, Roberts Regional Recreation Area, and Highway 13, 225 Rishell Drive is a spacious and light-filled 3BD/2.5BA mid-century home with dramatic bay views and an inviting layout. This lovely 1,741 square foot home features a crisp, modern aesthetic and an expansive garden perched on the edge of a bay-facing canyon.
The moment you enter this lovely home, you catch a glimpse of the views that await, and you are immediately drawn to the home’s spacious living room with its skylight, wood-burning stove, and dramatic nook. Pass through the living room to the home’s large deck and the magical rear garden unfolds from there, as still more of the incredible sweeping views emerge. The garden features a wood-burning fire pit, a raised vegetable bed, and a brick patio, and it is planted with productive apple and plum trees as well as an oak and a towering redwood.
In 225 Rishell’s beautifully updated eat-in chef’s kitchen, you will find ample cabinetry, quartz countertops, and a five-burner range with grill and double oven, making it ideal for entertaining. Up a short flight of stairs you will find a hallway bath with a shower over tub and two bedrooms, as well as the home’s delightful owner’s suite, which has two large closets (including one ingeniously fitted with a barn-style door) and a bath with a step-in shower. From the owner’s suite, you can also take in the sweeping view to the west.
The lower level of this welcoming home includes a laundry area with hookups and sink as well as convenient cabinets. On this level, you will also find an additional half bath and internal access to the home’s spacious two-car garage.
