Welcome to this well-maintained, fully-detached traditional Edwardian home on a premiere, walkable Noe Valley block! Its inviting and flexible floorplan on 3 levels will appeal to all discerning city-dwellers.
Let's start with the sizable, farmhouse-style kitchen that will make you and your guests feel right at home! It leads directly via new French doors to a spacious south-facing deck and full-size flat grassy yard complete with lemon trees. The kitchen features windows on 3 sides, admitting lovely light. It offers a versatile layout -- picture yourself entertaining a large gathering that can pass back and forth to the deck for bbq treats or sitting down to a casual breakfast on Sunday morning. The kitchen is equipped with ample wood and glass-fronted cabinets, a Bosch dishwasher, Thermador gas stove, Corian counters, a computer nook and great built-in storage options. The casual Peninsula-style counter features a secondary utility sink making it easy for multiple chefs to work their magic without bumping into each other and allows for informal breakfast bar seating.
On this level you will also find a spacious dining room, conveniently located right next to the kitchen for efficient serving and cleanup, and well-lit from its south-facing window. The adjacent traditional living room with gas-fired fireplace features generous built-in bookcases on both sides. On this floor there is also a full guest bathroom, a family room and a bedroom.
Downstairs you will find two more bedrooms including a comfortable private master with en-suite bathroom, and a generously-sized laundry room with side by side appliances, a utility sink and plenty of space for linens and other storage. Upstairs, there is a fully-developed attic with a den and a 4th bedroom along with 3rd full bathroom and lots of storage.
The foundation is concrete, some of it updated during permitted renovations to the ground floor level, and windows have been updated to double-paned glass. Special features include recessed lighting, crown molding / picture rails on the main level, exquisite pressed-tin wainscotting in the dining room and hallway, gorgeous refinished wood floors, a charming front veranda and classic dental-style molding detail at the front facade. There is parking in the garage for one car (easily takes a regular-sized sedan leaving plenty of room for driver to get out) and this garage offers internal access to the rest of the house. There is also a deep driveway that may accommodate a 2nd car. The current owners recently replaced the roof (it came with a 20 yr warranty) and completed recommended repairs at the front stairs and rear deck. While this is a charming home in move-in condition, however it also offers its new owner some exciting possibilities to add value by renovating in a more contemporary style.
This adorable residence is enviably located just half a block from Noe Valley's Church Street corridor & MUNI line, and a short stroll to Noe Valley's 24th Street’s vibrant retail strip. It is convenient to tech shuttles, bike rental, BART, and so much more! Walkscore = 92.
