This is an EXCEPTIONAL light-filled corner 6 room Victorian flat that defines San Francisco charm and character. The lot is 30 feet wide, so ALL of the rooms are large and the floor plan is much more open than the typical flat.
All the main rooms (three bedrooms, living room, and separate dining room), have huge windows with colored glass trim outlining the upper sashes and 11-foot ceilings. The flat is tastefully upgraded with modern amenities where they count and tremendous Victorian detail everywhere. There are two full baths, one with a shower over a deep soaking tub while the other bath features a large stall shower. Both baths have heated tile floors. There are modern appliances and a washer/dryer in the unit.
Both the living room and the dining room have wood burning fireplaces with the original mantles. Central forced air heating is controlled with a Nest thermostat, and Nest smoke detectors and programmable low voltage recessed lighting are throughout. Large closets with Elfa systems are in two of the bedrooms and there are numerous custom cabinet nooks over existing closets and in the kitchen providing additional storage.
The Haight Ashbury is approximately in the center of San Francisco and you can get anywhere in the City fairly quickly by car, public transportation, or ride share. This home is near the shopping and dining areas of Haight Street, Cole Valley, Divisadero Street, and the Inner Sunset, making it an ideal location for fun and practical living. And Golden Gate Park, Buena Vista Park, and the Panhandle provide ample opportunities for recreation and exercise.
At the center of Haight Ashbury is one of the most famous intersections in America. The epicenter of the counter culture movement, home to the Grateful Dead, the Haight Ashbury Free clinic, and the hippies of the 60s, today Haight Ashbury still retains a heady whiff of those free-spirited days, grounded by a new civic awareness and neighborhood pride.
Tourists still come from around the world to check out the action on Haight Street, and they find plenty of it. Trendy boutiques like Upper Playground, Buffalo Exchange and American Apparel sell the coolest looks. Independent record store Amoeba offers free in-store performances and proves there's still life in the music industry. When the hubbub of Haight Street proves too much, Golden Gate Park, with its new world-class museums, the DeYoung and the California Academy of Sciences, offer a calm oasis.
Renovation of the neighborhood Victorians continues apace. Converted to apartments in the 60s these homes are being rediscovered by families who take them on as hobby, pastime, passion, and investment. For families with young kids, the Haight Ashbury Coop Nursery School, now in its third decade, provides an inexpensive alternative to day care from its home in the Alma Street playground.
