Postcard-worthy Victorian flat in coveted Corona Heights with private backyard. Step into the foyer and a timeless floor plan reveals itself – high ceilings, oversized windows, and grand entertaining rooms. Extraordinary light cascades from south-facing windows in the front and a wall of glass in back, filling every historic nook and flourish. Careful renovations have ushered the circa 1904 home into the 21st century while maintaining period elements like propriety-shielding pocket doors, intricate molding, and recessed built-ins for above-closet storage.

Old and new mingle harmoniously in the contemporary interior. Large bedrooms enjoy the sizeable closets of today with original trim details. The living room’s magnificent box bay windows complement an equally striking decorative chrome fireplace. A bold accent wall enlivens the office alcove tucked neatly outside the parlor bedroom, and we have to imagine the updated full bath is a slight improvement on the past.

The formal dining room is still perfectly suited for intimate dinners and lively conversations, though guests are now encouraged to follow a seamless flow to and through the kitchen, a bright, cheery space big enough for multi-chef preparations and cozy enough for late night counter chats. Floor-to-ceiling glass sliders invite the outside in and everyone inside out to bask in the peaceful ambiance of the private garden patio.

One-car garage parking. Washer/dryer in laundry closet. Amazing storage beneath deck + shared storage room.

Enjoy a bit of nature (and the neighborhood’s enviable microclimate!) at Corona Heights Park, Kite Hill, or Buena Vista Park, get your heart pumping with tennis, trail hiking, or traversing the neighborhood’s steep hills, or take in the wild animal exhibits at nearby Randall Museum. The Farmer’s Market on Noe is a local’s favorite, running March-November on Wednesday afternoons.

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
