About

Amiable Cottage, Abundant Lot, Coveted Street

This 1,077 SF 3/1 charmer could be the perfect starter home or downsize opportunity. It really does have it all: updating, a great layout, extra large lot & convenient commute location on a quiet, friendly street.

The ample kitchen offers generous cabinets & was recently updated with new quartz counters, all new stainless steel appliances including stove with self-cleaning convection oven and duel door freezer bottom fridge, new vinyl flooring, new electrical, & energy conserving lighting. Out the kitchen window is an often spectacular sunset view, & a peek at Mt. Tam. Garage access is right off the kitchen, with washer dryer & plentiful storage easily accessible.

The living room has a lovely picture window to the west & the open floor plan dining area offers a slider directly to the patio for easy in-out entertaining. The three bedrooms in the back of the home open onto a central hall behind a divider wall from living areas for great separation of space. Bathroom upgrades include new low flow toilet, new cabinet & lighting, & new vinyl flooring.  

The 7,000 SF lot offers both a large front garden & two tiers of level back yard space that will spark your imagination. Whether you want to expand in the future, add an ADU, or simply create the garden of your dreams, the possibilities all exist here.  There are mature low maintenance plantings in the front, but lots of room to play & create. The back offers a large concrete patio just two steps down from the dining room, making for a great entertainment space, plus a second tiered garden space just three steps up from the back patio. The large upper yard area feels like Bambi’s glade now, encircled by trees & shrubs, but awaits your imagination for the future.

Location

Richmond View is one of those little hidden gems that many buyers often overlook, but is beloved by the people who live there. This block of Amador Street is a diamond among the gems. It’s close to everything & easily accessible, but tucked in enough to feel sheltered & quiet. The feeling among the neighbors is both friendly & private. They have a well-organized neighborhood association for education & cooperation regarding neighborhood watch & emergency/earthquake preparedness. The residents are a mix of long-time residents & newer families coming in. As the property was being prepared for market, many of the neighbors stopped by to introduce themselves & check in. Most of them have known the sellers for years & were surprised to know 626 was changing hands. The surrounding area is very walkable with sidewalks everywhere. The gentle hills grow to steeper climbs further up the hill, so it’s a great FitBit neighborhood for getting those steps in, strolling with your tyke or walking the pup.

Transportation options from 626 Amador are many & very convenient. BART is a short walk or scooter/bike ride away and there are easy access freeway on ramps in both directions just two blocks from 626 Amador. Many use the San Pablo Ave corridor to commute to stay off the freeway altogether. AC transit is easily accessible a few short blocks away on San Pablo Ave. Great grocery shopping options are close by, with Williams Natural Grocery for organics and alternative brands, Grocery Outlet offers great bargain shopping, & there is a newer Safeway & PetFood Express located right next to the Del Norte BART station. There are a wealth of ethnic restaurants nearby with food of every flavor.

So, welcome home to 626 Amador. It’s the perfect setting for your next chapter and plenty of room to grow towards the future.
