You love San Francisco. You moved to this city because you just had to. You imagined yourself living in a city that never gets too cold…. or too warm. A city with beauty to spare. A place that has always welcomed the quirk and the unconventional. A city that sits on the edge… a city that is the edge. A city that has a deep relationship with its architecture. A city connected to the physical beauty that surrounds it.
And, THAT is what this lovely historic Victorian home has to offer; a home with San Francisco history and architectural details that have survived the test of time.
The main floor, with dark hardwood floors, is composed of one large bedroom and another smaller bedroom, a formal dining room, newly renovated kitchen, a full guest bath, and a wondrous sunroom/living room that opens, via accordion glass doors, to a perfectly private deck/patio surrounded by bamboo trees. There is a genuine indoor/outdoor fluidity that creates that retreat like feel to this spirited residence. This is a home to not only entertain in, but a home to retreat to.
The second floor is reserved for the master bedroom which has big views to the bay and a newly renovated enormous master bath.
On the lowest level, an extremely large garage has laundry, plenty of storage and even potential for possible expansion.
The changes that have been made (the conversion of the top floor to the master bedroom suite, the addition of the gorgeous sunroom, the classically updated kitchen and baths) only enhance the home’s overall desirability.
The North-of-Cortland Bernal location is hard to beat. 1 block from Cortland and a few blocks from Bernal Hill. Bernal Heights has become one of the most desirable neighborhoods in SF. The vibrant commercial avenue with a fiery restaurant scene, small locally owned boutiques, coffee houses and more. Bernal also has 2 excellent parks; Bernal Hill and Holly Park are well loved by the residents of Bernal Heights. Conveniently located where the weather is mild and the commute south a breeze.
