The charming waterfront hamlet of Point Richmond is minutes from every convenience, while remaining a world all its own. The people of Point Richmond continue to stay true to the charm of what was originally a mini-village tucked between coastal farmland and the bay shore.Since 1978, the Point Richmond Historic District has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places. As the oldest neighborhood in Richmond, Point Richmond proudly displays historic Victorian homes, many lovingly restored to their original grandeur. A large number of homes enjoy stunning daytime and evening Bay views, and many residents are also sailors with boats at the local marina and yacht club.
Residents of this friendly, pedestrian-oriented urban village are within easy reach of independently owned shops, galleries, grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, a public library, a community playhouse, and the newly restored “Richmond Plunge.”
Point Richmond has excellent access to public transportation, including a nearby BART station and bus, train, and ferry service into San Francisco and surrounding communities. San Francisco is 35 minutes by freeway and Oakland is a 20 minute drive. It also sits at the eastern footing of the San Rafael Bridge, making the shopping, dining and recreational opportunities of Marin County just a few minutes away.
This is a place where you can stroll along the water to enjoy the cool bay breezes and breathtaking sunsets without ever having to leave this bayside village.
