Designed by architect Max Jacobson, this 1994 bay-hugging home in Point Richmond, brimming with blonde wood, an open concept living room, and pendant track lighting, makes the that Clinton-era decade look downright appealing. Quite a feat.
Featuring three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and 3,895 square feet, 1433 Sandpiper Spit is made up of two wood-paneled rectangular structures separated by breezeway and connected by a swooping, perpendicular second story clad with rusted corrugated steel.
The main house offers several outdoor decks, walls of windows, skylights, and a towering steel lattice stairway. The floating fireplace in the living room provides a nice hat tip to midcentury-modern aesthetics while remaining firmly planted in the 1990s. (Anyone remember Sno-Drift Lounge in Mission Bay? The late ’90s and early ’00s winter-themed lounge came with a similar fireplace.)
The adjoining structure holds an office or artists studio space, as well as a rooftop deck. And the waterfront property’s rear comes with a 50-foot floating boat dock for tootling around the bay.
The asking price is $1.85 million; it’s listed through Julia Bivins of Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty.
