Steps from the village of Glen Park, this fully detached 1908 Victorian cottage exudes charm and character. Many original details remain; ornamental facade, front garden, interior moldings, corbels, wainscoting, charming built-ins and a lovely terraced rear garden. The row of vintage Victorians on this block stand elevated above the street, adding a sense of mystery, serenity and privacy.

The living room has that beautiful early Victorian shape with lovely bay windows. This room transitions into a sitting room/den with a small built in bar; an ideal place to watch films, read, or listen to music.

The updated kitchen and dining area share a large open space, conducive for entertaining or for the end of day cooking and lounging.

The large master bedroom with en-suite bath was stylishly remodeled from the studs out and walks out through French doors to the patio, terraced garden and hot tub. The master bath was beautifully designed to include a modern and huge walk-in shower, heated floors and a floating vanity with double sinks. A tall fence surrounds the garden on all sides creating a sense of privacy that is commensurate with the enjoyment of the outdoor space and hot tub.

A smaller bedroom in the center of the home has retained much of the original architectural charm and has the added bonus of having French doors creating various options in how this room can be utilized.

A solar roof, a second full bath, plenty of storage in the basement and attic, and a laundry room are a rare find in this vintage home.

Glen Park village is just a couple blocks away. Walk out the door to destination restaurants and shopping. Your car can take a rest as the BART station is within blocks. Getting downtown has never been easier! Freeway access and tech shuttles to the south bay are also a few blocks away.

The sellers have plans to add a second floor. Plans are not yet permitted but available to buyers.

Location, beautiful Victorian architecture and the luxury of an indoor/outdoor lifestyle make this home a standout.
