Welcome home; you can relax here. Superbly located in Anza Vista, this expansive 4bd/3ba home with spacious backyard offers both a slow residential feel and unbeatable access to shopping, dining, culture, nightlife, and transportation. Panoramic views abound, as wall-to-wall windows bathe interior space with natural light.
An upper level balcony looks out to verdant hills, extending the scale of an already large living room and formal dining area – a tranquil spot for morning coffee or sunset cocktails. Original paneling, built-in cabinets, and a decorative fireplace with marble surround bring warmth to the vast open layout. Refinished hardwood floors gleam throughout. The updated gourmet kitchen accommodates chefs of all skill levels with updated quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances, and two Meile dishwashers to maximize efficiency.
Thoughtful design puts three bedrooms on one floor, tucked away from entertaining areas for ample privacy. Skyline views illuminate the front-facing bedrooms, courtesy of full-size picture windows. The primary bedroom boasts double closets and an en suite bath; bedrooms two and three feature walk-in closets and share the hall bath with shower.
The downstairs rec/living room and en suite bedroom can easily serve as an in-law/au-pair unit with direct access to the garage and kitchen – the flexible space also allows for seamless wining, dining, and game day gatherings, with a walkout deck and scenic city vistas. A short staircase takes you from deck to manicured yard and then to the home’s biggest surprise: a subterranean spa room with hot tub. This truly is an urban retreat.
Two-car side-by-side garage parking. Amazing storage; additional storage rooms on lower levels. Huge laundry room with side-by-side washer/dryer and shelving.
A small community, east of Lone Mountain and west of Divisadero, Anza Vista isn’t widely known, and its less than 4000 residents are just fine with that. Serene residential streets belie the neighborhood’s rampant accessibility. Haight Street and Divisadero Street corridor are within walking distance, and it’s only a 5-minute drive to The Fillmore, Divis corridor and Inner Richmond. Stretch your legs at the nearby Panhandle or take in sweeping views of the city as you play tennis or let your kids enjoy the playground. Local schools are top-rated, including a Chinese-immersion school for K-6, and the Jewish Community Center offers an indoor pool, community events, and classes for little ones. Almost every major grocery store is represented in Anza Vista, with Whole Foods coming soon. City Center houses a City target and other big chains, and Laurel Shopping Center is filled with mom-and-pop shops and specialty boutiques. When hunger strikes, you have plenty of delicious options to choose from. Che Fico and Little Star Pizza will cure any pizza craving, check our Nopalito and Papalote for a lively Mexican meal, and stroll to Nopa when you’re ready for a “creative cocktail.” Freelancers and coffee lovers will find themselves right at home at Matching Half Café, known for its friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere.
