June Cleaver called and she wants her house back. This immaculately maintained property is frozen in time with original cosmetic fixtures and finishes, yet updated systems. This classic ranch-style home is a mid-century modern lover's dream. It was custom built in 1958 with a large kitchen/family/dining room combo adjacent to a huge dance floor-sized living room. The fireplace that adorns the end of the living room has been used only once in its history, and the stunningly gorgeous hardwood floors were just revealed for the first time since 1958 when the carpet was pulled up. The sunny yellow kitchen tile is in pristine condition, and there are spare tiles saved by the original owner. These folks even kept the original oven manual, complete with dinner party recipes using the (then) state of the art rotisserie function. 

Beneath all the museum-quality vintage charm, the systems in this home have been extensively updated, including updated electrical, PEX plumbing, tankless water heater, central furnace and newer roof. But the piece de resistance is the 814 square foot garage—a 4 car, tandem garage—perfect for someone who loves to restore vintage cars, has a business they can work from home, or just needs a lot of storage. In addition, the side yard has a gate and concrete pad to accommodate RV parking (or more vintage cars).

Neighborhood

Founded and incorporated in 1905, Richmond has always been a city with an industrial background. During World War II, Richmond, base of the Kaiser Shipyards, was mainly oriented to shipbuilding. At the end of the war, with several big-name businesses relocating to Richmond, Port Richmond became a major seaport, and is now a significant part of Richmond’s economy. Beginning in the 1980s, in an effort to turn the abandoned shipyards into a residential area, Richmond shifted gears and began focusing on redeveloping the city into a residential and retail friendly environment.

Today, over 100,000 people call Richmond home. The city includes several shopping centers, a bustling downtown area, beautiful parks, including Point Isabel and Miller Knox Regional Park, and the Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park.
