You've been looking for a special house to come home to, to relax in, with light and space and a wonderful peaceful feel to it... Yet you wanted to be near the action of great places to eat, a farmers market, a park and world class museums. You wanted outdoor space and a home to entertain in... You wanted to live in a vibrant, friendly neighborhood... Come home to 1451 10th Avenue!
This is a house that just feels good to be in!Opening the door to the light filled entry, your eye is drawn both up the gracious staircase and yet you are compelled forward, by the view, just through the kitchen door, of the deck and yard beyond...
This is a generous feeling home with a remodeled kitchen featuring a Thermador 6 burner stove for your gourmet meals, a Bosch dishwasher and Vinotemp wine cooler plus plenty of cabinet space!
But better yet, is that this kitchen opens onto the deck for true indoor/outdoor living. Direct access to the gloriously landscaped garden on this extra deep lot is a real treat. In the magical garden, there's a variety of areas to sit and enjoy the flowers and space. You will start planning those parties now!
The living room features a handsome period reproduction Edwardian gas fireplace with Carrara marble, and many lovely original details. The double parlor doors open into the media room (or dining room?) Access to the deck and yard is available from here as well. Soft wood floors add warmth to the palette of the home...
A modern half bath completes this level.
Upstairs, six skylights drench the space in natural light. The front bedroom features lovely arched windows and ample closet space. The bathroom is remodeled; two french doors opening onto the generous space which is lined in natural stone and appointed with mirrors and lights. The spacious rear bedroom which is currently used as a work studio features a window seat with views out to the lush garden. Imagine sitting here, it's like you are sitting in the treetops, watching glorious sunsets over the spires of St. Anne's Church.
There is interior access to the large garage with plenty of room for parking and storage and the laundry area. There is also a potting shed for your gardening needs. Perhaps thereâ€™s even expansion potential youâ€™d like to take advantage of in the future?
All this and walking distance to so many restaurants, cafes, bakeries and pubs on Irving Street and 9th Avenue. It's just 2 blocks from the entrance to Golden Gate Park and a plentitude of eating options! There's a Sunday morning Farmer's Market in the parking lot between 8th and 9th, just off Irving. There's nearby UCSF Parnassus campus with the Millberry Fitness Center for your exercise needs when you aren't going for a run or bike ride in nearby Golden Gate Park. Or walk around the corner and hop on the nearby N Judah line to get downtown or head out to the beach! With a Walk Score of 95, you're living in a walker's paradise!
Beautiful light, period details and thoughtful updating are hallmarks of this Inner Sunset gem.
The first time on the market in more than three decades, special homes like this are rare indeed! The charm and warmth of your new home will win over everyone who steps through the door.
Affordability has long made the Inner Sunset attractive to waves of immigrants, beginning with the Irish to more recent influxes of Asian and Russian residents. Today, the Inner Sunset's diversity has transformed it into an eclectic dining destination for those San Francisco residents in the know. By day, this bustling neighborhood has a locals-only vibe as familiar faces make their way down tidy streets to shop or get that first cup of coffee.
The N-Judah line runs through the neighborhood, depositing students at UCSF -- a world-class school and medical facility -- and collecting commuters headed downtown. Throughout the day, tourists flow up and down 9th Avenue, en route to the numerous attractions in San Francisco's incredible Golden Gate Park. The park is certainly a major draw for residents, with many of its highlights -- including the De Young Museum, Academy of Science, Botanical Gardens and Conservatory of Flowers -- located just north of the neighborhood.
Come sundown, the Pacific fog rolls in and cools things considerably just as the restaurants are heating up. You'll find cuisine for every taste in this up-and-coming hot spot, from Indian to Italian, sushi, Thai and seafood. You'll be glad to be within walking distance as parking is at a premium in the evenings.
This family friendly neighborhood doesn't have much in the way of nightlife, aside from a few pubs catering to the UCSF crowd. But that doesn't mean its denizens are anti-social. The small-town vibe is evident as neighbors mingle during the summer months at the recently launched Sunday farmers market.
