3D Virtual Tour
Upon entering this enchanting and lovingly maintained 1884 Victorian cottage, you will be greeted by soaring ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors, and an abundance of natural light. Two bedrooms are located on either side of the entry hallway, each with the unique design feature of dramatic double doors, bright natural light from the skylights and tall windows, and quality Berber carpets. The primary bedroom includes an ensuite bathroom with built-in cabinetry and an oversized rustic mirror over the marble-topped vanity. The second bedroom showcases a floor-to-ceiling wall of built-in bookshelves that are perfect for a library or art display.
The entry hall leads directly into the formal living room that encompasses a separate nook for your home office. French doors offer an immediate invitation from the living room to the beautiful private deck and serene garden. A half bathroom is conveniently located off the living room.
A vintage eat-in kitchen is located at the back of the house and features beautiful terracotta tile floors, enough space for a large social dining table, and floor-to-ceiling windows which overlook the garden on one side and the outdoor deck on the other. The placement of the deck next to both the kitchen and living room lends an elegant indoor-outdoor feel to both rooms and the space is ideal for entertaining dinner guests or quiet relaxation. Stairs lead down from the deck into a secluded garden, where high wooden fencing and two evergreen trees provide maximum privacy and tranquility.
In addition to the Victorian charm of the original corbels, wainscoting, moldings, and hand-cranked doorbell, the home features the practicality of a large basement with a laundry area, built-in workstation, and ample shelving and storage space.
The location is just a few blocks from convenient shopping at Trader Joe’s and Target at the City Center shopping plaza, and an easy access point to explore the boundless trails and nature of the Presidio, and the thriving restaurants, boutiques, and culture of the nearby commercial corridors in Laurel Village, Pacific Heights, NoPa, and the Inner Richmond. Commuters will enjoy the property’s central location and easy access to the numerous cross-town MUNI bus lines and bike routes.
