Owned by the same family for over a century, this charming, peak-roofed, 1907 Victorian with gingerbread detailing and a front porch is a rare opportunity indeed. On one level you will find three bedrooms, the living room with bay window, the formal dining room, and an eat-in kitchen. Adjacent to the kitchen and overlooking the backyard is a bright sun porch. Topped with a large skylight and windows that enjoy outlooks to the west, this space is perfect for a home office or breakfast room. Stairs off of this room lead to a good sized backyard that is flat and warmed by the western sun. It's a great space that awaits your personal touch and green thumb.
The residence features classic Victorian details such as the beautiful wood flooring that was installed by the Seller's father over 100 years ago. Picture rails, glass door knobs, and a quaint built-in buffet in the dining room all add to the period ambiance of this lovely home. The home can be enjoyed as is or remodeled and expanded to fit your needs. There are a full attic and a large parking garage with high ceilings in which to let your imagination run wild as you ponder the expansion possibilities!
Located on a charming block and a short walk from the conveniences of Mission Street, this home is also a hop, skip, and a jump to the Excelsior Playground which is located right around the corner! Easy transportation options, including convenient freeway access, multiple MUNI stops, and a close 20-minute walk (per google maps) to Balboa Park BART, only add to the desirability of this rare offering.
“ I thought my house was just a shack, but the presentation that Doug & Eddy put together put a real value on it that was much higher than I would ever have imagined it to be worth. I don’t know what I would have done without their knowledge of the market and guidance throughout the sale process. ” - Barbara Volken
Here’s what Barbara's nephew Randy and his wife Karen had to say about their experience working long distance with us:
“We have relocated several times for various job opportunities across the U.S. (Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Chicago, Indiana, Arizona, and Southern California) and have worked with a number of realtors over the years as both buyers and sellers. Our experience working with Doug & Eddy to sell our Aunt’s house was truly amazing. We have NEVER worked with a more professional, caring, or thorough team of realtors. They offered the superb market research, excellent (informed and pleasant) communication throughout the process and service that went above and beyond all expectations. We packed up Barbara’s belongings, but Doug & Eddy arranged for all the repairs, cleaning, painting, yard work, donations, trash hauling services, movers, inspections, staging, marketing materials, open houses, negotiations, and paperwork. They seemed to genuinely enjoy the process, and we didn’t have to make a single return trip to San Francisco to handle ANY of the details. It was something to behold! If you are contemplating the sale or purchase of a home in the San Francisco area and want to sell or buy at the best possible price, our advice would be to hire Doug & Eddy IMMEDIATELY!” - Randy & Karen Barbera
