On April 18, 1906, tragedy struck the City of San Francisco and within the next few days Mission Dolores.  The fire stopped a few blocks beyond Dorland Street and fortunately spared the adobe Mission itself near 16th and Dolores.  The Mission went on to inspire a generation of California architects, such as Willis Polk who restored the Mission in 1924.  In 1905 Dolores Park was officially christened but it’s development was slowed down by the fire as well.  
The opportunity provided by the tragedy of the fire has made the Mission Dolores a repository of grand Edwardian architecture built from about 1909 to the mid 1920s, of which 19 Dorland is a spectacular example.  It has the large rooms, high ceilings and ample closet space that exemplify the interior style as well as the classic, restrained details and features epitomizing the exterior style.  By 1909, the area was under rapid redevelopment.   One can imagine that then as now, the Mission Dolores was an exciting center of culture and activity.  (If you have wondered why Dorland dead end’s through Mission High School, that’s an interesting story too.)
As you climb the wide staircase into the flat, you are surrounded by calm that belies the center of the city location.  The staircase carries you to a large entry hall open to the dining room and remodeled kitchen.  The entry and staircase feature original stained glass windows in the art nouveaux style that was emerging at the time.  At the rear of the flat there is an oversized bedroom that could be used as a 2nd living room if desired.  At the front of the flat there is a living room, and two more amply sized bedrooms (one with decorative fireplace) as well as a full bath with double lavatory and a 1/2 bath.  The center of the flat contains some very large walk in closets that make it easy to live in a serene environment where everything has it’s place.  The well-run 3 unit HOA has just re-landscaped the side garden which can be accessed from Dorland or via the rear stairs.
Within just a few steps, you can buy groceries at the amazing Bi-Rite Market, meet friends at Pizzeria Delfina or be tempted by the delicacies at Tartine.  A few steps further takes you to the social epicenter that is Dolores Park, which features festivals and movies in the park.  Bart is close by at 16th & Mission, with all the eateries and shopping on Valencia and it’s cross streets so close by you will be tempted to never eat at home.  Tech buses are nearby both east and west and freeways are just blocks away as well.  19 Dorland is the perfect place to enjoy all the access to San Francisco you could imagine now as it was 100 years ago!
