3765 21st Street
This absolutely delightful 1916 charmer sits atop the crest of Dolores Heights on a peaceful block offering up panoramic views, extraordinary light and a creative, flexible floor plan. Offered for the first time in 55 years, this wonderfully well-cared for home exudes the charm and intimate feel so rarely available in today’s modern renovations. An intimate cottage-like property prior to the current ownership, the home was reconfigured to create a lower, garden-level extension that offers up two bedrooms and direct access to the magical south facing garden. The garden was created with a stepped configuration and is lushly landscaped to create the most intimate of outdoor seating areas. The garden is viewable from the 3rd bedroom or office and offers up a dreamy spot to engage in creative pursuits or to laze away the day.
The home is filled with skylights and clerestory windows, maximizing the natural daylight and creating a warm, welcoming and inviting atmosphere throughout both levels of the upper home. The expansive living and dining room retains its charm with original hardwood floors, a wood burning fireplace, original double-hung windows and a delightful “pass through” to the kitchen. The living-dining area offers up views to Twin Peaks, the hills of Eureka Valley to the northeast and a view of the ever expanding downtown skyline.
The entry level suite or accessory space has been used for a children’s play area, a private spot for out of town guests and much, much more.
Street parking has been exceptionally easy for the owner, parking in front of the property nearly every day for the duration of her ownership. Of course, prospective owners are encouraged to make their own determination of parking ease and access.
A sizable storage area under the home is directly accessible from the entry level suite or down the tradesway from the garden, making access to necessary belongings, quick and easily available.
The home is ideally located equidistant from the heart of Noe Valley, the heart of The Castro and Dolores Park, plus just a few blocks away from the epicenter of the Valencia Corridor retail district. Also view at RobLevy.net
