“Just What You Need Right Now”

1915 was an exciting time to be in San Francisco.  The Panama Pacific Exposition was in full swing.  You know the monuments but you may not know why they are there – the Palace of Fine Arts, the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and the Palace of Legion of Honor.   Another artifact of this time is the gracious home at 549 Grafton, a well-sited and still comfortable today Craftsman shingle style cottage.

549 Grafton has so many wonderful features.  It starts with the entry off of a large covered porch.  (What a luxury in this time of home delivery to have a fairly secure place for packages?)  An entry hall leads on one hand to the front bedroom or into the fireplace-oriented dining room on the other.  This flows to the living room with a built in bar and large bay window overlooking the side garden.  From there you can either go into the first of two perfect office-sized rooms or to the kitchen.  The kitchen leads to a private, rear, main bedroom with a large walk-in closet.  Access to the yard through the 2nd office/sunroom is level with the house and invites socially distanced BBQs with friends, working from home while in the sun, vegetable gardening and all-around relaxation.  There is also a basement with plenty of storage and parking.

The location is walkable, transit and freeway friendly, but without any bustle.  Ocean Avenue nearby has plenty of takeout, a Whole Foods, historic Beeps Burgers, the delicious Pho Ha Tien, and the hipster Sakesan Sushi & Robata.  It’s also walkable to Trader Joes’s at Stonestown.  This is the convenient shelter you’ve been looking for!
