Living Hayes Valley: In the Center of it All
Can you imagine that once all of San Francisco, from Van Ness to Ocean Beach, was undeveloped? Imagine the feelings of those first few home owners as they planned the details of their stunning modern masterpieces in the Eastlake Stick Style. You can feel how excited they must have been in their enthusiasm for all the little details (many of them ordered from a catalog) that provided so many ways to personalize their new home.
133 Years Later …
Now located in the geographical and cultural center of San Francisco, 256 Page offers delightful period details in abundance along with modern conveniences like its wonderful remodeled eat-in kitchen with a Viking Range, built in fridge and wine chiller, Nest controlled central heat, in-home laundry, and an exotic Indian slate bathroom with oversized soaking tub. Its gracious high ceilings, warm wide-plank wood floors and spacious rooms will give you respite from the City even as you enjoy being at its very center.
The location is amazing. You can be on the freeway south or the train downtown in mere seconds but walk to enjoy meditation at the SF Zen Center, coffee at Mercury Cafe, brunch at Straw and dinner at Revelry Cafe – and that’s all without leaving the block! Other places beckon – think Zuni CafeSuppenkucheIl Borgo, or the Blue Bottle in Linden Alley. And culture also abounds – from hanging in Patricia’s Green, to enjoying music at the San Francisco Jazz Center or the San Francisco Symphony, a lecture at City Arts & Lectures (what else!) to the SF Opera or the Ballet – all within a few minutes walk.

Back in 1885, the City was just expanding westward and 817 Lyon was built as a wooden Italianate Victorian row house. Over the years occupants modernized her with a stucco facade, a 1920s fireplace and other art deco touches. From the picket fence to the Wedgewood range, the overall effect is to welcome you back in time. Recently refreshed with new paint and light fixtures, 817 Lyon is ready for new occupants to feel the cares of the city fall away as they close the door and retreat to the kitchen to make dinner or the garden to grow some good things to eat.

The front of the house has a gracious living room with a fireplace. The front bedroom opens from the entry hall and overlooks the small front garden. At the center of the home is an oversized kitchen/dining room with a period washboard sink and Wedgewood stove as well as a new refrigerator. The 2nd bedroom is accessed off the kitchen. It boasts an attached sunroom which can be used as a 3rd bedroom. A spacious (and useful) hallway extends from the kitchen to the rear garden and provides access to the large bathroom with laundry in the closet. The rear garden extends some 50+ feet behind the house and overlooks the other yards on the block and provides views of Buena Vista Park and Sutro Tower. The home is completed by a full level of storage/basement below the main living level. This could be used for expansion or as workshop space. RH-3 zoning makes even provides the opportunity to add a unit or two to the property.

The NOPA location is amazing – just a couple of blocks from the Divis corridor with all the hip nightlife, restaurants and BiRite market – and just about the same the convenient shopping near Geary and Masonic (think Trader Joes and Target both walking distance!). In addition, the neighborhood has an influential and active neighborhood association (NOPNA) that often holds events across the street at St. Cyprian’s Church.
