Located about a mile from Bart, blocks from Maxwell Park and close to Laurel shopping district, plus direct access to the 880 and 580, it’s also a commuter’s dream.
The craftsman architecture is the central focus from the curb. With stately columns, a modern color palette, grassy front yard and drought tolerant plantings, the large front porch begs an invitation.
The floor plan has a great flow with a large open living and dining space as you enter from the classic front porch. Direct sightline views lead your eyes to the french doors and back yard right away. The kitchen has been remodeled with quartz counters, stainless steel appliances, and shaker cabinetry. New hardwood floors extend through the kitchen and into the family room, which is the heart of the home.
French doors flood the home with natural light and peekaboo views of San Francisco. The small deck leading down to the large grassy landscaped yard, which is a welcome surprise, with multiple areas for gardening, relaxing and entertaining. There is a patio and BBQ area, more drought tolerant plantings, plenty of room for a vegetable garden and lots of grass to play in.
The master bedroom is en suite with modern touches and a good size closet. The second bedroom is generous and would be perfect for a kid or two. There is a second full bathroom in the hallway that has been updated with stylish tile and finishes.
Additionally, there is a detached cottage studio with open rafter ceilings and a private entrance. At just over xxx sf of additional space, one could easily imagine a home office or income unit with a few finishing touches.
2+ car off-street parking, laundry closet off the kitchen, as well as basement and attic storage complete the home.
