Own a piece of San Francisco history. Built circa 1887, this elegant 2bd/1ba Victorian TIC stands smartly amongst other well-maintained beauties on a favorite block of the Shotwell Historical District – one of the city’s designated “Slow Streets” offering a suburban feel in the heart of Inner Mission. From horse-drawn carriages to autonomous vehicles, this classic Eastlake Stick Victorian has always retained its beauty and charm. The exterior was lovingly restored on all four sides, with refurbished shingles, siding, and updated windows, painted in classic colors of white, black, and emerald green. An elevated front yard gives peaceful separation from the street replete with a lovely garden shared with the adjoining unit.
A blend of old-world elegance and modern design, the interior has been extensively remodeled to maximize space, comfort, and utility while honoring original period details like eyebrow arch windows, ornate molding, and wainscoting. A clawfoot tub juxtaposes the upgraded bath’s designer finishes, and natural light streams freely throughout the home via arched doorways and sky-high ceilings. Bedrooms are especially bright – a gorgeous box bay window creates a sunroom-esque sitting area in the primary, a serene space to start the day or enjoy an afternoon read. The floor plan lends itself to easy entertaining, as the updated kitchen encourages flow between the living room and the home’s true gem, a massive backyard deck with multiple seating areas primed for al fresco dining or relaxing. Lush landscaping and a backyard that was recently redesigned by Flora Grubb imbues gatherings of any size with a little extra magic.
The efficiency and ease of this home are echoed in its Inner Mission neighborhood. Need a bite to eat? Tartine has the best croissants in the city and is right by Sightglass Coffee and Trick Dog’s craft cocktails and eclectic small plates. Limon Rotisserie is full of Peruvian delights, and Heirloom Café can host your dinner dates. Weekend mornings, grab some groceries at Bi-Rite Market and stroll over to Dolores Park for a sunny picnic before sauntering on to one of the area’s many independent bookstores. Dog Eared Books is a sure bet for gently used finds.
When it comes to shopping, your options are endless. Good vintage is on almost every corner. Valencia Street is lined with cute clothing boutiques. If it’s furniture you’re after, scope out the selections in Potrero’s design district. When the sun sets, head to Shotwell’s Bar, a city institution founded in 1891, and one of those true low-key neighborhood bars where people get to know their community – over trivia and craft beer. Shotwell’s Halloween Party is a favorite annual tradition, welcoming more than 500 trick-or-treaters to the block every year.
