Sometimes you really just want it all – a home that has all the historical details you love about San Francisco, but the modern luxuries and conveniences that fit your lifestyle. A lot of light that bathes your interiors, but the privacy that your family deserves. A tree-lined residential street, but close to the urban lifestyle that drew you to San Francisco in the first place.

At this stately Victorian, with its best in class renovations and gracious, expansive living spaces, a remodeled designer kitchen, its own home gym, and enviable wine storage – you can have all your dreams come true.

This 3 bed, 2.5 bath is made for a discerning homeowner. The stunning Victorian looks impressive though petite from the curb, with its Victorian architectural details – but packs a visual punch as soon as you walk in. The double living-room is expansive and lit by the golden Eureka Valley sunshine, and opens into a dinner-party worthy dining room with its built-in cabinets. The renovated kitchen has luxurious marble countertops and top-of-line appliances. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets, an island with bar seating, and lovely fixtures round out this recently renovated, high-end kitchen. The beautiful bay window in the living space and sliding doors that connect to the deck create an indoor-outdoor style.

Downstairs, the main bedroom has an en-suite bath, a walk-in closet, and opens into the deck and garden area. There is a separate home gym that can also function as a Zoom-room or den for WFH needs. A wine storage area and a dedicated laundry room complete the luxurious feel of this single-family home.

The backyard sanctuary has been recently upgraded with a more expansive deck and is a shelter in place dream, filled with hummingbirds, and flowering plants. Given the perfect weather, grilling dinner al fresco or sharing a cocktail around the firepit is a wonderful way to wind down after a long day. The neighborhood is a gem of an incredibly warm community, a storied street, and incredible walkability.

Located on lovely Douglass Street, the home is situated at the southern end of Eureka Valley on the cusp of Noe Valley. It sits on a tree-lined street that is a hop away from the well-regarded Firefly restaurant, Barney’s gourmet burgers, and Saru Sushi. Ambiance, Whole Foods, Walgreens, Noe Valley Bakery, Skin Spirit are all a few minutes’ walk away and for the outdoors, Douglass Park and Kite Hill offer greenery and a place for children to play and dogs to run.

"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
