Wonderful single-family home at the intersection of coveted Cole Valley and the Inner Sunset! Steps from Golden Gate Park, this elegant Edwardian residence has been beautifully maintained and upgraded by the current owners over the years. Housing three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the upper level, plus a top-floor playroom/family room and a downstairs studio with separate entrance, this home offers fabulous flexibility and inviting spaces to gather.
Entering the home through a glass front door surrounded by leaded glass decorative windows, one instantly notices the sophisticated period detail and intricate craftsmanship on display throughout the home. A gracious formal entry is ensconced in wainscoting with a beamed ceiling overhead and a coat closet. To the left is a spacious formal living room, graced with bright, west-facing windows and an inviting gas fireplace.
Past the formal entry is an elegant formal dining room, complete wood wall paneling, a beautiful decorative fireplace, a beamed ceiling, and a welcoming window bench underneath windows that overlook the garden. The dining room has a passthrough opening to the gourmet kitchen for a seamless flow between the two rooms and a breakfast bar for informal dining. The gourmet kitchen has been updated over the years with quality maple cabinetry, granite countertops, sleek stainless appliances, and undercabinet lighting. The space includes plenty of counter and storage space for the accomplished chef, and a large pantry off the kitchen provides additional storage and shelving. There is also a powder room for guests outfitted with whimsical blue tile. The kitchen is filled with light from large French doors at one end opening to a patio.
The sprawling patio is an ideal spot for seating and BBQing, with stairs leading down to the backyard. The level yard is idyllic and spacious, with a large green lawn surrounded by mature trees and landscaping, and charming shed, office, or exercise studio tucked away at the back of the garden with windows and plenty of room to work or play.
On the upper level of the home, up a skylit staircase, are three bedrooms and two bathrooms off a spacious landing, equipped with hardwood flooring and a convenient laundry closet. The two front bedrooms are both generous in size and face east, overlooking the garden. The two bedrooms share an attractive bathroom with a shower over a Jacuzzi tub.
The primary bedroom is at the back for privacy and features an alluring bedroom equipped with built-in bookshelves and a window seat, a fantastic walk-in closet with custom built-ins, and a contemporary ensuite bathroom with porcelain tile, a walk-in glass shower, and heated floors.
On the upper level is a superb bonus space – a fully functional attic, with endless play space or room for an office plus a guest room. The attic houses built-in bookshelves, windows, and a storage closet.
On the lower level is a one-car garage with ample additional storage space, as well as a full studio apartment/in-law (unwarranted) with a separate entrance through the tradesmen’s alley. The studio is cozy and functional with windows to the backyard, a small kitchenette, and a bathroom with a shower.
With Golden Gate Park right outside your door, this location is brilliant for access to trails, Koret Children’s Playground, Robin Williams Meadow, and all the notable museums and attractions in San Francisco’s largest park. In addition, you have renowned fine and casual dining options within walking distance to the west on Irving Street and to the east in charming Cole Valley, including nearby grocery stores Luke’s Local and Whole Foods. There is even more green space with the Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve trailheads just five blocks north and convenient Muni access half a block away.
