A Well-Loved Home
This attractive, well-maintained, totally delightful 2-bedroom, 1-bath bungalow is on a leafy street in the highly sought after Richmond Annex neighborhood. It features a welcoming open plan living room with lots of natural light from large windows, a fireplace, new flooring, and a wide archway into the dining room. The kitchen has an adjacent laundry room, tile floor and another wide arched entryway. Both bedrooms have generous closets, new carpet, and French doors to the deck. The home has been freshly updated with new paint in pleasing, fun colors inside and out, some new light fixtures, and new landscaping front and back. There is a very private fenced backyard with a good-sized, partly covered deck perfect for outside dining. The backyard is well appointed with fruit trees, flowers, lots of sun, and a large shed, perfect for the seasoned gardener or for outdoor fun and games. Located In a very walkable neighborhood, the home is less than two blocks from the El Cerrito Natural Grocery Store and Huntington Park, and close to a wide variety of good restaurants and other amenities, including the Rialto Theater, the El Cerrito Plaza BART and shopping center, the El Cerrito Swim and Community Center, and the Contra Costa Community Theater. This friendly neighborhood and delightful home is ready for a new owner to enjoy.
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.
