Thoughtful renovations kept everything that was cool and unique about the original construction while ushering the home into the here and now with an updated kitchen, hardwood floors, double pane windows, and garden patio.

A wrought-iron gate and covered entry lend elegant street presence and added security. Great for hosting purposes, the lower level’s flexible floor plan features a formal foyer with a coat closet and generous en suite bedroom that can serve as an in-law unit or entertainment space with a full bath, adjacent laundry room, private deck, and garage access. Guests can head straight to the backyard – an idyllic space to relax or BBQ, surrounded by lush plantings (including pear and peach trees!) – without tracking through the main entry thanks to dual entryways.

The all-white kitchen is well-appointed with quartz counters, a deep farmhouse sink, and upscale stainless-steel appliances (Bosch dishwasher, Samsung range, touchscreen LD LG fridge). Hardwood floors run throughout with a beautiful flow to the living room, where you’ll love cozying up in front of the decorative fireplace. Bedrooms enjoy lovely garden lookouts. Bathrooms are sleek and modern, updated with thermostatic temperature shower control and designer finishes

About the Neighborhood



Glen Park is more than just a neighborhood, it’s a community. Among the top 20 American neighborhoods to experience the largest millennial population growth, Glen Park is bordered by Noe Valley and Bernal Heights. It sits on a sunny slope of San Francisco, packed with trendy restaurants, delightful stores, and unique friendliness. Mark your calendar in April for the annual Glen Park Festival, a whole neighborhood celebration that dates back to 1911. Home to Glen Canyon Park, an amazing natural landscape with bouldering, a newly renovated recreation center, hiking trails, tennis courts, and more, Glen Park attracts active, outdoorsy people of all ages and is especially popular with families. Interstate 280, a quick drive away, makes for easy commuting. Or walk to the Glen Park BART station – a much-lauded study in Brutalist architecture – to quickly jet into the city.

The Krishnan Team

Holly Hirshfield & Alan Peterson

"Our initial consultation was one of the most memorable discussions we’ve had with someone in the business. She demonstrated through examples how creative, solutions-oriented and innovative her approach was; notably how her team adapted to the covid-19 environment through novel and personal marketing and attention to detail via virtual experiences. Other Realtors offered us a lower rate but we believe we got the quality and caliber we paid for."
N.O., Seller
"Ruth is a down-to-earth, friendly pit bull who represented us well and never let her guard down. She prepared us, protected us, and positioned us for what could not have been a more successful sale."
J.R., Seller
"In this very tough market, she got my family into a fantastic home. I was getting ready to walk away from the SF market altogether, because I just didn't think we could find what we wanted in a home at a price we could pay. Ruth is an absolute pro and helped us get the house we wanted. Ruth is a master real estate agent and the one you want in San Francisco."
H.H & A.P., Buyer
"In such a competitive market we needed an edge to get the home we wanted and we found that with Ruth and her team. She is down to earth, very personable and a master negotiator. She is honest, understanding, and not just out to make the sale."
R.M., Buyer
"Ruth was quick to assess our needs, the property needs, and the San Francisco market needs. She considered the property thoughtfully as she made recommendations for any renovations or work required. Her experience and knowledge as an interior designer is an asset. She creatively played with the space to increase its marketability and our home was beautifully displayed. We were pleased with the amount of offers and felt that Ruth's knowledge attributed to our success."
N.S., Seller
