Gracious Edwardian With Fabulous Views
The Excelsior District’s distinctive “around the world” street naming pattern dates back as far as 1869. There was a lot of expansion in the district following the 1906 Earthquake as people looked for new homes. Perhaps 53 Edinburgh was built by one of these families? It was built in an older Edwardian style, with thoughtful built-ins, an elegant Venetian plaster living room, an ornate decorative fireplace and a very modern combination of electric and gas lighting. (Yes, the fixture in the living room is believed to be original – now converted to all electric it once had half gas and half electric branches!)
The home features a highly desirable floor plan centered around a large living room adjacent to an eat-in kitchen, which, in turn, flows to the stunning and sunny rear garden. The three well separated bedrooms are toward the front of the home. The rear garden can also be conveniently accessed via the large garage. Back inside, laundry can be found in the bright eat-in kitchen overlooking the garden, and the charming bathroom features a claw footed soaking tub with shower and a stunning double sink. Upstairs, accessed through a closet in the living room, there is a large attic for storage or future expansion.
The home is well located in the northern part of the Excelsior District with easy access to transit downtown or freeways both north and south. The Excelsior, a great neighborhood in and of itself, centered around the lively shopping on Mission Street, borders Bernal heights to the north, Glen Park and Mission Terrace to the west, the biggest park in San Francisco to the east.
