Gracious Space for Gentle Living with Views Forever …
On so many days, the view is big and blue and endless. This freshly renovated, spacious Spanish-Mediterranean style classic Sunset home is one where you will see unforgettable sunsets and big ocean views and enjoy space to thrive. Upon entry you will be struck by the elegance of the original mahogany woodwork, hardwood floors and delicate plaster details. The vaulted ceilings of the living room are complimented by the Palladian style front windows, Batchelder tile fireplace and original built-ins w/ writing desk! The large living room adjoins the dining room, which flows, in turn, to a breakfast room and refreshed kitchen with painted cabinets, Carrera-style quartz counters and new stainless appliances. The kitchen exits to a convenient side deck where you can grill or enjoy a morning coffee with privacy and a staircase down to the garage. Across the hall from the kitchen there is a stylish split bath with new tile floors and fixtures and a staircase to the rooms below. Two spacious bedrooms with bay windows reveal the stunning, panoramic ocean view complete the top level of the home. Internal stairs provide access to spacious laundry/utility room, office with access to the rear garden and deck, and a third bedroom with original Douglass fir floors and its own bath. Views from this level are also spectacular. Out the back door, there is a small deck large enough for a relaxing seat and stairs to the garden. The garden is ready for your touches with a level decomposed granite area for outdoor dining and plenty of room for plantings to flourish in the long afternoon daylight afforded by the southwestern exposure. The large garage has ample ceiling height, room for further expansion and 2+ cars and storage.
And the neighborhood! There is so much to do here: from hiking the Hidden Garden Steps to relaxing in the sun at Arizmendi from filling up at Tartine or Nopalito to enjoying sophisticated dinners at Fresca or Izakaya Sozai from shopping at the Inner Sunset Farmers’ Market or Andronico’s or from taking your pick between the California Academy of Sciences and the DeYoung Museum of Fine Arts you might have a hard time choosing just what to enjoy next. But that’s not all there is to do. Activities in Golden Gate Park are too numerous to list but here are a few: The San Francisco Botanical Garden, classes at the Sharon building, tennis, the Koret Playground, Golden Gate Park Carousel, lawn bowling (who knew?), the Japanese Tea Garden, boating on Stowe Lake. The access here is amazing. And if you get tired of the Inner Sunset, it’s a quick ride on the N-Judah to Cole Valley, and points further east.
Access to downtown, tech shuttles and freeways south are all within easy reach. The streetcar (20 mins to downtown) stops three blocks away, the shuttles are nearby (at 19th & Kirkham/Judah) and 19th Avenue is just a few blocks away for quick freeway access. At 1639 17th, the best of Living415 is truly at your doorstep.
