Living Silver Terrace: The Perfect Vantage Point
Most evenings, twinkling silvery lights accent true blue skies and water as the sunset is reflected off the east bay hills and the skyscrapers of downtown pierce the heavens. Fog obscures and then suddenly clears. Atmospheric change is constant in SF and 114 Bridgeview is the perfect place to enjoy the daily drama of interplay between the changing San Francisco skyline and its foil, the eternal San Francisco Bay.
The first homes in Silver Terrace date back to the early 1900s. But the iconic block that is Bridgeview wasn’t built until the mid 1950s. The row of homes that contains 114 were designed with new “mid-century” design principles, such as open living spaces and orienting the home to the view, rather than following the more traditional public rooms in front/bedrooms in the back design. The benefits of the original builder thinking things through are stunning.
After enjoying morning coffee on one of your sunny decks, stroll down to Flora Grubb for inspiration and some new patio plants and stop for lunch at All Good Pizza on the way back. Or, if you are feeling more traditional, Auntie April’s Chicken and Waffles might be the ticket. For dinner you might venture out to the Old Skool Cafe for a combination of community feeling and elegant dining. The home is also just a stone’s throw from the vibrant San Bruno Avenue commercial corridor which features the new Four Barrel Portola, the classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s. One thing is for sure – this part of SF is exciting and densely packed with experiences to explore.
As much as there is to do in Silver Terrace and the adjacent Portola and Bayview, it is also convenient to quickly get to other parts of the city, downtown on the T or to the many jobs in the Peninsula via the quick access to both Highway 101 and 280.
