Chic Crocker Amazon Home
This stylish 1920’s Marina style home is located on an oversized lot on one of Crocker Amazon’s best blocks. Fully detached, it’s a hidden gem with an ideal floor plan: 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom on the main floor, plus a bonus bedroom, bathroom downstairs in the large 2-car garage. It’s move-in ready, but the added value is the ability to improve or expand this home.
The character and details of this vintage are apparent in every room. From the fireplace and moldings to the bay windows and built-in credenza, there’s a distinct yet casual style that feels effortlessly modern. The piece de resistance is the huge, beautiful, professionally landscaped garden with multiple entertaining areas and modern plantings. This home is a commuter’s dream with just a quick 5 minutes from 280 South and Balboa Bart, and it is close to Ocean Ave. shops, Glen Park Canyon, and Bernal Heights.
The deep gray facade is a perfect fit with the classic Marina style architecture with signature curved bay windows across the front. The living room spans the width of the house and opens up to a large formal dining room with a classic built-in hutch. The large, updated kitchen has an open breakfast bar and lots of cabinet space.
The gracious master bedroom overlooks the yard in the back and is large enough to easily accommodate a king size bed. The second generous sized bedroom is quietly situated behind the living room and has good natural light. The third bedroom/sunroom is at the rear of the house encircled by windows and views toward Twin Peaks. The good sized bathroom has been updated with stylish touches.
Downstairs is an unwarranted space with a flexible room, a bedroom, and a bathroom. The garage has good ceiling height and plenty of room for future expansion and integration with the upstairs. Your imagination can run wild with ideas for indoor-outdoor living, possibly french doors leading to the sunny yard or a deck off the main floor that leads to the yard. The large, flat back yard has been landscaped with modern plantings, stone paths and multiple areas for entertaining.
This gracious home is brimming with character and style and features a large, sunny yard – something that is hard to come by in San Francisco. Crocker Amazon is a hidden gem of a neighborhood, close to freeways and transit, yet quiet and residential, just waiting to be discovered.
