A Location and Home as Wonderful as It Ever Was
In 1958, San Francisco stole the Giants from NYC and construction of their stadium – Candlestick – was underway. And the building of the modern neighborhood of Miraloma Park was nearly complete. From here you could, as now, get quickly to shopping or downtown, but enjoy a quieter and more private life high above the bustle of the busier parts of the City, with the convenience of it still being all nearby. Just a few minutes by car from West Portal, Ocean Avenue, Glen Park, Noe Valley or the newly built Stonestown, and walking distance, down treelined streets, to an excellent elementary school, Miraloma Park was then, as now, seen as a convenient and elegant place to live.
Also in 1958, 205 Molimo was built for the perfect Mid-Century Modern life, with an open concept, reverse floor plan oriented to the view, a spacious and private primary suite, two upstairs bedrooms, terraced yard with a spacious patio for outdoor living, a huge side by side garage and an extra workshop space off the garden. Today the home boasts newly refinished hardwood floors, fresh paint and is ready for new occupants. The kitchen has been prepared with new granite counters, sink, faucet and stainless appliances. The skylit upstairs bath has a new lighting, vanity top and faucet. The upper level has expansive views from the living room and dining room. Imagine enjoying the twinkle of lights in the distance at the same time as you cozy up to the corner fireplace or settle down to enjoy dinner with friends in the spacious formal dining room beneath the new chandelier. Downstairs, the primary suite can be flexibly used as a family room or guest room as needed. A third level, below the primary suite, contains a workshop /future expansion space that leads to the spacious patio and terraced south facing garden. Now, as in the past, 205 Molimo is a wonderful, spacious and well-laid out home in one of the best neighborhoods San Francisco!
