In the heart of Eureka Valley this 1902 storybook Victorian melds vintage charm with modern amenities to create the ultimate urban home that is walkable to shops, restaurants, nightlife, parks, shuttle stops, and transit. The village-like quality of this unique location is just steps from the heart of the historic Castro District. The tree-lined streets filled with low profile buildings and single-family homes offer the convenience of everything you need within a few blocks while creating an intimacy that is so rare to find in a big city.
The home has retained much of its vintage architectural features; a wide banister leading to the second floor, large proportioned rooms, high ceilings and hardwood floors throughout. As you enter the home, the large foyer opens to a spacious living room with tall, coved ceilings and crown moldings that blend seamlessly with the modern upgrades. Custom built-ins and a stone mantle surround the gas fireplace. This south-facing room receives natural light throughout the day, making it the perfect place to curl up and relax on a couch by the bay window.
Situated just behind the living room, a huge formal dining room with space for 8-10 guests, is the perfect place for large dinner parties. It’s dramatic and moody, creating the right atmosphere for some serious entertaining.
Conveniently adjacent to the dining room is the updated kitchen that includes high-end appliances and plenty of cabinet space. Behind the kitchen is a sunny laundry room that leads out to an oversized patio area that is great for entertaining. It’s large enough for a big outdoor table and a full-scale lounging area that can accommodate couches and chairs as well as a barbecue. This very large space has the potential to be developed into your personal oasis!
Upstairs are two large gracious bedrooms with high ceilings, large custom closets, and great natural light. The remodeled bathroom features a rain shower, heated flooring and plenty of storage. The second full bath on the first level is modern and stylish.
The third and lowest level includes a guest bedroom and 1/2 bath. Although unwarranted, it is definitely a desirable commodity when family and friends visit. At the base of the stairs is a good-sized utility room with an organizing counter, cabinetry, and an extra refrigerator/freezer. One car garage parking and extra storage space add extra convenience. The home is equipped with CAT5 wiring, built-in speakers and recessed lighting throughout.
Located in the flats of Eureka Valley and just a few blocks from the historic Castro District, this home is easily walkable to shops, markets, restaurants, nightlife, 18th & Castro shuttle stops, Eureka Valley Rec Center and Collingwood Park. Castro Muni station and lines 33, 35 and 37 are just steps away, making this the best of urban life. This home makes you realize why the Castro district is one of the few areas of San Francisco that people choose to live in for a lifetime, thus providing a sense of continuity and place.
