3D Virtual Tour
Start the new year afresh in this charming, mid-century home. With a unique split-level layout, all three bedrooms are slightly separated from the social space, providing privacy and a sound buffer, while still feeling close-at-hand with just a few steps between each level.
Beyond the formal entry and coat closet, one is greeted by an expansive social space for dining and relaxing with beautifully refinished parquet hardwood floors and a skylight. The living space opens directly onto a sunny oversized kitchen, enjoying the natural light from the large south-facing window that overlooks the backyard. This recently renovated space features a breakfast bar, recessed lighting, abundant quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances, open shelving and ample cabinetry.
Just six steps up from the dining room, the upper-level features two spacious bedrooms connected by a light-filled hallway. A full bathroom is located off the hallway between the two bedrooms, equipped with a large skylight, shower-over-tub, floating vanity, and tile floors. A linen closet is conveniently located off the hallway. Both bedrooms feature hardwood floors, ample closet space, and oversized double-paned windows.
Beyond the kitchen, a short staircase leads down to the third bedroom, outfitted with new Berber carpeting, an office nook, and an efficient ensuite bathroom. Adjacent to this bedroom, a flexible room drenched in sunlight through the glass ceiling provides an ideal location for a cozy home office, art space, or playroom. This room can be accessed through the lower bedroom or via the kitchen.
The lovingly maintained backyard is surrounded by a pleasant array of raised planter beds, and includes an irrigated vegetable garden, a rainwater collection system, and a wooden deck ideal for a BBQ or dining al-fresco. A stone path leads to a large cottage positioned at the back of the yard, providing additional finished space for a home office or studio. The unique split level design of this Doelger home allows for direct access to the backyard from the kitchen or lower bedroom, a rarity in the Sunset.
Adding even more to the already significant utility of the house is a large roof area, accessed via a staircase off the upper rear bedroom. With views to the ocean, this is a great space to consider for a roof deck to enjoy the sunset view. A one-car garage with laundry hook-ups is accessed via the lower-level bedroom and includes built-in shelving and a deep crawlspace that runs the length of the house – perfect for storage.
Wonderfully maintained and tastefully refurbished, this home not only offers unique and flexible design, but a fantastic location. Enjoy proximity to one of Noriega Street’s main retail corridors, with abundant shopping and dining only a few blocks to the east or west, alongside direct access to transit and commuting via Sunset Boulevard only one block away. Some of the most well-regarded schools in San Francisco are also nearby, with six top ranked schools all within 10 blocks of the house.

One of the classic San Francisco neighborhoods, the Central Sunset exists between the Inner and Outer Sunset, and benefits from being a short distance from Ocean Beach and Golden Gate Park. There is a distinct small town feel to many of the Central Sunset homes, though the area's geography allows for a great blend of urban experience. There is a multitude of international diversity to enjoy thanks to generations of immigrants who settled here and opened businesses. Plenty of great ethnic eateries to be discovered, along with some innovative upstart restaurants, give the Central Sunset broad options for the discerning palette.
The University of California medical campus is located nearby, atop the hill on Parnassus Street. Family activities abound with Golden Gate Park within steps, including the world class Koret Children's Playground, botanical gardens, Conservatory of Flowers, and newly re-opened California Academy of Sciences. The West Sunset Library and Playground are within close walking distance, and the San Francisco Zoo is a short drive away. The area schools are second to none, with consistently high scoring elementary and secondary schools placing at the top in the California API.
This home is located near some of the Sunset’s most desireable commercial districts. On outer Noriega Street, you will find a small commercial corridor with a laid-back beach vibe and outdoor dining, and every weekend you can enjoy the local Sunset Farmer’s Market just a block away. To the east are some vibrant eateries and shops, and one of the neighborhood's most dynamic commercial districts can be found along Irving Street. Down-to-earth cafes and diners and many local attractions demonstrate that this vibrant neighborhood has something for everybody.
Public transportation couldn't be more convenient. The N-Judah and L-Taraval both make an easy run through the neighborhood, connecting residents to downtown.
