A blend of old-world elegance and modern design, this Inner Sunset home has been extensively remodeled to maximize space, comfort, and utility while maintaining and restoring original period details like herringbone hardwood floors, rare fireplace carvings, and crown molding. Hand-carved double doors open the kitchen/dining areas to the living room, where massive arched windows look out to the church across the street. Other unique treasures include a hidden seat tucked in the hallway, so one can take a phone call, and a brick closet downstairs, which doubles as an effective wine cellar.
The 3bd/2ba is spacious and bright, the lower level is comprised of a bedroom, den, kitchenette, and full bath with backyard access and a separate entrance. It can easily serve as an in-law or au-pair suite, home office, gym, or artist’s studio.
Every detail of the upper level was carefully considered, from the expansion of the back bedroom – which would also make an inspiring home office setting, bathed in light by large windows overlooking the backyard – to the addition of a showroom quality walk-in closet in the primary bedroom. Bathroom renovations included designer tile, hand-selected finishes, and a barn door entrance for the hall bath – here you’ll also find a stackable GE washer/gas & steam dryer. The gourmet kitchen is an entertainer’s dream, with an extra-wide island, ultra-upscale appliances, and extensive drawers and cabinets, each designed for a specific purpose.
Early evening, an incredible light illuminates both the front and back of the house. Enjoy the warmth of the expansive living room or savor the moment in the backyard. Perfectly manicured (and low-maintenance) landscaping sets a relaxing scene for al fresco dining or cocktail hour.
The sizeable garage allows for two-car tandem parking and ample storage.
It’s tough not to love Inner Sunset. Walking distance from Golden Gate park, the friendly neighborhood feels a bit like a small-town – people greet one another on the street, grab fresh baked goods at Arizmendi & Tartine, and gather to cheer your favorite sports team at Blackthorn and Yankee Saloon. There’s even a store entirely devoted to board games. This “small-town” community comes together at the local Farmer’s Market on Sundays, and enjoys the diversity of excellent global cuisine, specialty shops, accessible culture, and the beach just three miles away. The Muni will get you downtown in a snap, but why would you leave when everything you need is right here?
