This extraordinary peaked roof Victorian home, superbly located in central Potrero Hill, boasts a spacious, light-filled floor plan with gorgeous downtown and Bay views. The original home has been updated and expanded over the years to include multiple skylights, large view decks off the upper two floors and an elevator servicing all three levels (including the basement/garage). The flexible 7-room floor plan (measured at over 2000 square feet per appraisal) can be enjoyed either as a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home (1 bedroom unwarranted) or 2 bedrooms plus den and includes a large family room plus formal dining room!  Enjoy hardwood floors, high coved ceilings and generously sized rooms throughout most of the home.

At the main level, a large and welcoming entry foyer creates a great sense of warmth and openness.  The foyer leads to a large double parlor featuring tall windows with beautiful downtown views.  This space flows nicely to the formal dining room with elevator access and to the sizable eat-in kitchen.  The sunny, updated kitchen features extensive cabinetry, a laundry area and sliding doors to the first of two large view decks overlooking the San Francisco Bay.  In addition to being a wonderfully convenient place to barbecue with family and friends, the main level deck includes a stairway down to the peaceful brick patio and garden.  Relax amidst the lovely apple tree and exercise your green thumb while taking advantage of the built-in gardening sheds.  

Beyond the grand entry foyer, a handsome sky-lit stairway leads to the upper level with three nicely sized bedrooms (one bedroom is unwarranted and could also be used as a den) and a large, sky-lit full bathroom. The charming front bedroom features captivating downtown views and the rear bedroom, the largest of the three, enjoys a roomy walk-in closet and over-sized picture window, perfect for taking in the striking bay view!  This master bedroom also features direct access to both the elevator and to the large upper view deck – the ideal place for savoring your morning cup of coffee.  Enjoy the spacious upper floor plan with multiple large closets in its current configuration or potentially re-design it to include an additional bathroom.  

The substantial garage level accommodates one car and boasts a tremendous amount of storage and work space as well as direct access to the rear garden. Ideally located off 18th Street in central Potrero Hill, this special home enjoys close proximity to fabulous restaurants and cafes, shopping, public transportation and parks.  Within a few short blocks are many of the local’s favorites including Farley’s coffee, Plow Restaurant, Goat Hill Pizza, Christopher’s Books and Good Life Grocery. Walk to MUNI and CalTrain and take advantage of the easy freeway access.  Exceptional homes like this one do not come along very often – don’t miss this rare opportunity!

Neighborhood


Potrero Hill

Potrero Hill is a bastion of sunshine in a city known all-too-well for fog. The commercial strips along 18th and 20th streets imbue the area with a small-town feel. The area was once dubbed Goat Hill, in honor of the livestock roaming about; and one can still enjoy spectacular downtown views, offering residents a constant reminder that they are indeed in San Francisco. World-class restaurants and bars are tucked into corners along the steep streets, and residents and visitors alike enjoy ample street parking in this less-traveled part of the city. Easy Caltrain and freeway access have made Potrero Hill a popular home base for those who commute to the Peninsula or East Bay; downtown is a hop, skip and jump away. Visitors may mistake Potrero Hill for an industrial or business district, due to its proximity to the San Francisco Design Center and Mission Bay. But in fact, the residential community is a tightly knit one, with strong neighborhood and parents' groups at its core. You can catch that community spirit at the annual Halloween Potrero Hill Pet Parade or on a daily basis as you join your neighbors for a cup of joe at Farley's. Locals take advantage of Potrero Hill's many hidden secrets, such as the historic Potrero Hill Neighborhood House, the Anchor Steam Brewery tour, art shows at California College of the Arts, live music at Bottom of the Hill or Thee Parkside and of course, the annual big wheel race down the city's real crookedest street, Vermont Street.
