252 Elsie St, San Francisco – 3 Bedroom | 2 Bathroom | Built in 1905 or newer | 1775 sq ft home size approx | No parking spots – $1,398,000

Welcome to this very lovely and well appointed home on a picturesque block in everyone’s favorite neighborhood – Bernal Heights. Walking distance to shops, restaurants (yes we will be able to dine out someday), bars, parks, and the adjacent neighborhoods of the Mission and Noe Valley/Glen Park.

This home began life as a peaked roof Victorian on a cobblestone street at the turn of the 20th Century. Now in the 21st Century, the cobbles are gone but the charm remains and the home has come a long way. On the entry-level just a few steps up from the sidewalk and front pocket garden you enter into a center hallway with one bedroom on either side of the hall. The Southern bedroom has charming glass doors that open welcomingly and the opposite bedroom has a walk-in closet. This level is served by a beautifully appointed bathroom with custom walnut cabinetry, dual custom medicine cabinets, and a convenient laundry chute.

The rest of this floor has been opened up to provide a chef’s kitchen, open the dining room and large living room, all providing a warm and charming Great Room in which to lounge comfortably or entertain graciously.

Special features:
✓ Hardwood floors throughout the main level
✓ Wonderful large center kitchen island with lots of storage
✓ Granite countertops, solid wood cabinets
✓ Pull down stairs to roomy attic for storage
✓ Small deck off the living room has a tree-house feel overlooking the garden
✓ House is flooded with natural light from dawn to dusk

A versatile and amazing lower level has been developed and opens onto a mature and well-loved garden. This space is level, private, peaceful, and beautiful.

The lower level consists of a primary bedroom, a bath with a large shower, and a garden/family room complete with a small gas fireplace that opens via two sliding doors onto redwood decks. There is also an imaginative office/conference space on this level with its own separate glass door entrance and has unimaginable amounts of storage. A laundry room with a pantry and a large storage space for bikes and tools completes this well developed and versatile lower level of an incredible house.

Easy access to public transportation, 96 Walkers score, great biking, close to freeways 101 and 280 for commuters.
