319 Precita Avenue is an exceptional flat on one of the most desirable, sunny, and bucolic blocks in Bernal Heights. Located directly on Precita Park, this historic, perfectly maintained and updated home is the best of San Francisco’s quintessential period architecture.
The early 1900’s vintage offers all the original architectural features: a wide floor plan, high ceilings, wainscoting, and a gracious layout. The beauty of this full-floor flat is that its classic features are matched by a clean, up-to-date modernity. The wide-plank natural-finish oak floors, a remodeled spa-inspired bath, and the enormous updated kitchen are spectacular and brand-new. All updates and transformations were carried out with an eye toward bringing together the timeless architecture with the needs and desires of contemporary city life.
The sunlit formal living room has bay windows that face directly onto Precita Park. A particularly unique feature is its unusual working Murphy bed dating back to sometime around the 1920s. This affords the ultimate in flexibility when hosting out of town guests.
The very spacious master bedroom is located at the rear of the flat and is well-appointed with a large closet and the original built-in. The large second bedroom with its original sliding pocket door is far enough from the master bedroom to afford the luxury of privacy for both bedrooms.
The large eat-in kitchen includes white cabinetry that reaches the ceiling, stunning charcoal gray stone counters, and all new stainless steel appliances. Conveniently, the washer and dryer are located in the pantry off the kitchen.
Past the kitchen, at the rear of the flat (facing the garden) is the delightful surprise of this incredibly appealing home: a sunroom that has been utilized as a dining room in the past but is currently configured as an office/library. This peaceful spot will bring joy and a sense of well-being no matter how you choose to utilize it.
The front of the home faces the green and beautiful Precita Park and looks up the hill to Bernal Heights Park, a daily recreation spot for past residents. But there’s a private connection with the outdoors, too, experienced when you spend time in the gorgeous, long-cultivated rear garden. This garden has had the benefit of love and care for decades. The mature fruit trees, roses, winding path and rear sitting area create an amazing retreat from city life.
The sense of community is omnipresent on this very special Bernal Heights block with friendly neighbors. It is also a convenient place to call home: organic markets, restaurants, coffee houses and, of course, the park are all mere steps from this address. Google and other Silicon Valley bus stops are an easy walk.
