This lovely Bernal Heights home on a pretty, tree-lined block features fabulous outdoor space and a wonderfully walkable location, steps from Cortland Avenue and Holly Park.
The front of the home presents beautiful landscaping and mature trees. Up a flight of stairs to the entrance, the interior displays charming period details including stained glass accent windows and hardwood flooring, as well as modern upgrades. At the front of the home, on either side of the entrance, are two bedrooms, both with great light from oversized windows. The larger bedroom includes Bay windows and the second bedroom has a generous cedar-lined closet.
The hallway opens to a great room, including both a kitchen and dining room with soaring ceilings. Up a flight of stairs is a fantastic primary bedroom, which is flooded with light from overhead skylights and north and south-facing windows. The room is charming with exposed beams overhead and lined with cleverly built-in storage. It can accommodate a bedroom area as well as a separate home office space or sitting area.
Downstairs, the kitchen has been attractively renovated with a marble island/breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, exposed wood beams, and chic white cabinetry with bronze accents. The adjacent dining room gets delightful light from three windows and contains plenty of space for entertaining. Both the kitchen and dining room flow naturally into the living room at the back of the home.
The living room is expansive and bright, with wood-framed large windows allowing for southern sunlight to stream in. A recently renovated bathroom is located off the living room, outfitted with stylish tile floors, barn-style doors, textured wallpaper and wainscoting, a glass-enclosed shower over tub, and a sleek floating wood and quartz double vanity. The living room looks out onto the garden, and a glass door allows for seamless indoor/outdoor access.
The backyard is truly the highlight of this special home. Framed by tall trees, this sprawling garden backs up to the Elsie Street reservoir, creating a private and serene oasis. Colorful landscaping surrounds the yard and sophisticated pavers line the seating area. There is a gorgeous cedar soaking hot tub, and steps up to an entertaining area, complete with a stone fire pit. A striking stone and wood bar is equipped with a grill, storage, and a built-in television for outdoor viewing parties. A tradesmen’s alley allows for direct access from the street for a gardener or outdoor guest! With a back gravel lined area for additional seating, this bucolic setting is truly a respite from urban surroundings and the ideal spot to entertain and enjoy the southern sunshine.
The garage houses one-car parking, a side-by-side washer dryer and a workspace or storage area (and possible expansion potential!), and there is additional one car parking on the pad.
136 Santa Marina is located three short blocks from the wonderful restaurants and shops on Cortland Street, and is just a few blocks from Mission Street restaurants, as well as Noe Valley favorites such as La Ciccia. With Holly Park around the corner, boasting a playground, picnic tables, rolling hills, walking trails, a basketball court and a baseball diamond, and easy freeway access to 280 and 101, this home offers convenient access to urban attractions and green spaces in a serene residential community.
