1469 Sandpiper Spit, Point Richmond — With commanding 360-degree views of the San Francisco bay, Bay Bridge and San Francisco’s skyline from almost every room, this luxurious waterfront masterpiece was built in 2005 and features a 55-foot dock with deep water access with 104 feet of water frontage, 4 bedroom+office/5.5 baths, an open-concept chef’s kitchen, expansive living room, additional media room and multiple outdoor living spaces perfect for enjoying quintessential waterfront living at its finest.
The home is ideally situated at the end of Sandpiper Spit, enjoying one of the best locations in this coveted enclave with unobstructed views of the bay and the San Francisco skyline and beyond. The high-quality construction and attention to detail are obvious throughout every aspect including the concrete pilings and concrete deck which support the home, designed to withstand the test of time on the water. The home’s striking, contemporary lines are visible from the water and echo the seafaring yachts which pass through the bay.
The home boasts a 55-foot dock with deep-water access with 104 feet of water frontage which could easily accommodate a boat of up to 80 feet. The dock enjoys an easy approach protected by prevailing winds and has direct access to the bay – exactly what mariners up and down the entire coast of California are seeking. The dock also provides a wonderful spot for launching smaller boats, kayaks or paddle boards, as well as entertaining guests and sipping wine while enjoying the stunning sunsets.
The home features an open-concept floorplan that integrates the kitchen, dining area and living room. This area features high ceilings with exposed beams, a gas fireplace and entertaining patios on both sides of the home – perfect for entertaining and family gatherings. Captivating panoramic views are enjoyed from every window.
The stunning chef’s kitchen is open to the dining area and large living room. It features high-end stainless appliances including a Wolfe range with 6 burners and two ovens, built-in refrigerator/freezer, warming drawer and wine cooler. The large center island is perfect for informal gatherings or dining. Imagine preparing meals and entertaining guests with water views from every window!
The spacious master suite is accessed through double doors and boasts panoramic views of the bay and the San Francisco skyline. This private retreat features exposed beam ceilings, walls of windows, an enormous walk-in closet and a beautiful ensuite bath with a jetted soaking tub and a large tile shower with glass enclosure.
Upon entering the home, guests are greeted with a magnificent circular stairway that ascends to the two upper levels of the home. This concrete and steel creation is a true work of art framed by windows overlooking the bay. The staircase is painted “International Orange”, a nod to the Golden Gate Bridge. There is an additional circular stairway on the exterior rear of the home made of stainless steel – another work of art that showcases the quality construction and attention to detail of this home.
This home features some of the most amazing views in Northern California, with the San Francisco skyline and Bay Bridge on full display. There are also views of Angel island, the distant hills of Marin County and nearby marinas.
