This pleasant home, located in the hills of historic Crockett, at 1514 Francis Street is certainly appealing.  With its attractive fenced in garden, amiable front patio space, and cheerful white paint, it offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in approximately 1666 sf of living space.  

Ideally located, the home is just moments from the varied shopping and dining adventures provided by the many nearby cities along highways 80 and 780, including Benicia and Vallejo. 

Outdoor activities are close by, and include, in part, Crockett Hills Regional Park and Franklin Canyon Golf Course, as are the pleasures of sailing and boating the adjacent waterways of the Carquinez Straits and  North Bay.

Upon entering the house, guests are welcomed into this comfortable living room that is softly lit by the light from two sets of large floor to ceiling windows.  A richly colored oak hardwood floor adds warmth to the space, and there is a flexible floorplan space for placement of furniture.  

A reverse view of the living room revels the generous wall space against the far right wall that is ideal for additional furniture, bookcases, or an expansive entertainment center.  Closet space is available just behind the distinctive sliding barn door to the right of that center.  

Note: There are two distinct living units in the home.  Upstairs, and shown here, is a space that includes a living room, dining area, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom.  (The second unit will be shown later, below).

Just beyond the closet is a hallway that leads to  rear of the house, and the additional living spaces that are seen below.   

 Just down the hallway, is this efficient dining room and kitchen blend that is perfect for day to day living, and could easily accommodate friends for a dinner or party. 

Off to the right, is one of the two upstairs bedrooms which will be seen in more detail below,  It can easily be closed off when guests are present.  

This set back kitchen, with its wide window, provides updated appliances, and a very efficient use of space.  

Opposite the kitchen on the far wall, is this very expansive built in china cabinet, with long sliding glass doors above, for display of favorite glassware, and multiple storages spaces below, for serving pieces, plates and silverware.  Between the two levels is an ideal serving space for meals.    

Immediately next to the kitchen area, and easily closed off from the dining area, is the first of the two upstairs bedroom.  Spacious and bright, it has its own side window, a handsome hardwood floor, and room for a good sized bed.  

The second bedroom on the main floor, seen here, is expansive, placed off the living room, and boasts three large, almost floor to ceiling, windows offering pleasant views to the outside garden.  

This completes views of the upper level.  The lower level is seen below.  

The lower level is unique unto itself, and has one bedroom, one bathroom, and a separate entrance.  Seen here is the central living area, with an adjacent, and quite pleasing, kitchen to compliment it.  

This kitchen is bright and cheerful, with plenty of both storage and working space.  

Steps away from the kitchen is the lower bedroom with sufficient room for seating and relaxing,  a bed, and plenty of closet space.

This lower level bathroom completes the living space for the lower portion of the residence.  

An outdoor garden is awaiting a spring planting and a new year of fresh  flowers and vegetables.  

For a slightly more rural touch, a chicken house and chicken run are all in place, if desired.  

If this engaging home is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $599,000.
