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.
