Sweet as Cherry Pie
This 1940s charmer is ready to give back all the love and care it has received over the past decades. The tender, loving care is clear from the moment you approach. Admiring the manicured front yard and well cared for property exterior gives only a hint of all this property holds within. Large windows bring in abundant natural light which highlights the recently refinished solid oak floors as well as the spacious rooms and smart floor plan. Echoes of days past call out from the numerous mature fruit trees in the backyard begging for homemade pies, lemonade, or even salads. Citrus trees will brighten all your dishes with juices from the Meyer lemon and Bearss lime trees; while strawberries, grapes, thornless blackberries, cherries, apples, and plums will stain happy fingers picking snacks straight from the vine. Impress guests with goat cheese stuffed figs or speckle a salad with fresh pomegranate, all with fruit from your garden. Life feels simpler when home is this sweet.
Spending time with those you love comes naturally here with large, airy shared spaces flowing freely into each other. Step over the threshold and into the spacious living room looking out through the dining room to the oversized sunroom and straight on to the level, landscaped backyard. Not to be outdone in spaciousness, the updated kitchen offers room for eat-in dining, massive meal prep workspace, or room for all your guests to congregate during a party. Ample counter space and cabinets for storage will have you feeling like Martha Stewart when you utilize the extra deep sink and new dishwasher after putting the gas Kitchenaid stove and vented whirlpool hood to work. The large laundry room off the kitchen could be a perfect playroom to keep the kiddos close and their toys out of the way.
Separate from the public spaces, the three bedrooms share a hallway with the full bathroom. The two back bedrooms look out to the sunny backyard and all three bedrooms have deeper than expected closets. Sleep easy wrapped in all the love felt in this home.
Lincoln is a wide street with smooth sidewalks and ample parking, but should you prefer a bit more privacy, a back alley is shared with neighbors giving access to the one car garage, with tandem parking. Access from the garage is just a few steps to the back sunroom or the side access kitchen door. If the generous amount of space afforded in the house could be a bit more for your taste, the garage is the perfect opportunity to develop a detached hangout room or hobby space. Whatever dreams your future holds, 2880 Lincoln has just the right mix of old time simplicity and updated ease to help them come true.
Richmond’s North and East neighborhood is vibrant! Nearby amenities are growing constantly in this blossoming neighborhood. You won’t be at a loss for local coffee with Catahula Coffee just up the way. If hiking is your thing, take a quick trek up the hill to Wildcat Canyon, but if you prefer to be closer to the water Point Pinole Shoreline offers even paths for runs, bike rides, dog walks, or a casual stroll. But if you’d rather be on the water, maybe the Point Pinole Yacht Harbor (and all it offers) is your cup of tea. With recently opened ferry service to San Francisco, commuting from Richmond has some beautiful options that can keep you completely off the freeway other than nearby transbay bus line H or BART (both of which are a mile and a half away).
