No, this isn’t Malibu.

This circa-1934 Mediterranean seaside home, which comes with a swimming pool and a spa overlooking the bay, can be found over in the city of Richmond. Gasp.

Featuring two bedrooms, two and one half bathrooms, and 2,024 square feet, 411 Western Drive is a split-level home with soaring ceilings, exposed beams, skylights, hardwood flooring, and picture windows offering views of three bridges.

The top-floor master bedroom includes a marble bathroom with its own private deck. At the basement level, there’s a studio/guest bedroom and another bonus room that could be used as an office.

Outside you’ll find multiple terraces, several gardens, and a pathway leading to the pool and jacuzzi—a preferable way to frolic in the water as the bay is far too glacial for swimming.

According to SFGate, this is only the second time the home has been for sale in 85 years. Asking is $1,595,000; it’s listed through Carla Della and Geri Stern of Compass.
