Located on one of Noe Valley’s prized blocks, 122 Fair Oaks is a pristine three bedroom Victorian condo nestled on a tree-lined street but steps from the heart of it all. A quintessential San Francisco building, the facade is undeniably gorgeous and perfectly reflects the timeless beauty and grace of the interior. This top floor condo has all the elements of greatness; infused with a ridiculous amount of natural light (it is uniquely detached on the south side), soaring ceilings, architectural details still intact, large proportioned rooms, and three real bedrooms plus flexibility in the floorpan. This condo is everything you imagine when you picture a San Francisco home.
A living room at the front of the flat has a fireplace and a bay window, perfect for a cozy nights at home. The double parlor is currently used as the dining room and opens directly to the living room. This room could easily serve as a bedroom as another eating area is located off of the kitchen.
A large bedroom at the center of the home is currently utilized as the master bedroom. The second and largest bedroom is at the back, facing the garden. A third smaller bedroom is at the front. The split bath at the center has been stylishly remodeled.
The kitchen has been beautifully renovated with an eye towards maintaining the timeless quality commensurate with the rest of the home. The kitchen has a breakfast sunroom that walks out to a lovely shared garden. The garden is verdant and large with a hot tub and multiple fruit trees.
2-car parking and a good-sized storage room are assigned to this unit.
The adage that once you live on Fair Oaks you never leave is certainly born out in the home-ownership history of this incredible flat. The current sellers who have had the immense pleasure of owning this iconic flat for 16 years reportedly are only the fourth set of owners since it was built around 1895. The home was built by Adeline Center and she and then her daughter and granddaughter lived in the home until the mid-1950s when it was sold to a Hungarian family who had three sons. For nearly 125 years it appears that this unit has always been occupied by the four families that owned it. This explains its pristine condition and soulful vibe.
A true sense of history, a gorgeous turn-of the-century home, an amazing central location and a property that checks all the boxes combine to make 122 Fair Oaks… home.
