RetroFabulous, Perfectly Located Beach House


What does retro-fabulous mean?  It refers to something that it is right in sync with the times, even though it’s actually not new.  It means that it evokes a nostalgic excitement, while making you want to actually USE it now.  1511 44th is a Streamline Moderne home that totally qualifies as retro-fabulous.  Note the porthole window.  Note the nautical stripes across the top of the front façade.  Note the corner fireplace in the living room, the refinished hardwood floors, the skylight above the dining room and the Wedgewood range.  From the eclectic and sheltering front garden to the original doorbell chimes, this is a wonderful, warm and functional place that you will want to relax and spend your time.  Upstairs there is a large living room, open kitchen and dining room, full bath, and large bedroom.  Downstairs is a 2nd bedroom, laundry room, access to the rear garden, storage and parking. The rear garden has a spacious area for entertaining surrounded by mature plants.  It is sheltered and private and the stainless BBQ even comes with the house! 

It is clear that the Outer Sunset offers an amazing lifestyle.  As we continue to open up in 2021, that is more true than ever.  Bordered by Golden Gate Park and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area’s Ocean Beach, there is plenty of room to stretch your legs, surf, bike and meet up with friends.  And it still feels like city living with excellent outdoor dining at the Sunset Cantina, Toyose, The Pizza Place, Celia’s by the Beach, & Underdogs Too; coffee at Andytown or Java Beach; takeout at  Hook Fish Company, Devil’s Teeth; fine wines and snacks at Palm City; and convenient gourmet shopping at at The Other Avenues or Gus’s Noriega Produce.   1511 44th is at the center of it all.  Just 2 blocks from Outer Judah and 2 blocks from Outer Noriega and a few more blocks to either the park or the beach, it is in the best location to take advantage of the relaxing delights the neighborhood has to offer.  Home beach home!!!
