This Edwardian single-family home built in 1922 has great appeal, inside and out.
The traditional first floor has a formal living room with a wood-burning fireplace and built-in shelving. A formal dining room has beautiful original architectural detail still intact. The eat-in kitchen has been stylishly remodeled with Cherry cabinets, Cesarstone counters and high-end stainless steel appliances. There is a ¼ bath and washer/dryer on this level.
Both bedrooms on the second level are large enough for king sized beds and a sitting area. The bedrooms are filled with light and feature original Douglas-fir floors. There is an unusual amount of closet space and a full bathroom on this level.
Perhaps the most compelling aspect of this home is the enormous, private and quiet brick patio and yard with mature plantings. The Mission is known for being the banana belt of San Francisco. You can take advantage of the warm and relatively sultry weather by relaxing on the wrap around deck that has direct access from the kitchen.
A large garage includes two-car tandem parking with a ton of additional storage space. The large lot size may offer potential expansion possibilities.
Upgrades throughout this home include a new furnace and ductwork (2005), new paint inside and out, recently refinished Douglas-fir floors, updated electrical, new copper plumbing, earthquake retrofitting upgrades (sheer walls, bolting, tie-downs), and a new steel I-beam and post system (installed with permits and engineering plans).
Following in the footsteps of Valencia Street, The Cesar Chavez Street Design project is already underway and re-envisions Cesar Chavez Street from Hampshire to Guerrero Streets with a widened and planted center median, bike lanes, and new street lighting. The proposed streetscaping on Bryant Street reduces traffic from 4 to 2 lanes and includes landscaped plazas and planted medians.
The exciting hustle and bustle of the Mission is left behind upon entering the front door of this handsome and traditional home, creating a totally quiet and serene retreat from the world.
