A truly gorgeous, well-preserved grand scale 1930’s era home, reminiscent of a Mexican Hacienda, that directly fronts the green, green, grass of adored Precita Park! Boasting an unheard of 125 foot deep lot with fabulous back yard gardens, this is a property like no other!
There are so many things to marvel and admire about this special home. The gracious entry lobby, and quite stunning grand scale adobe themed living room with exposed beam ceiling, wood burning fireplace, and tall arched windows framing the Precita Park vista, are things of rare wonder from a bygone era. The formal dining room with intricate plaster moldings, the beautiful long curved hallway, and oversized center patio with no less than three sets of French Doors creating a subliminal outdoor living room – right in the middle of your house!
The original hexagonal parquet hardwood floors are in pristine condition and truly a thing of beauty. Complemented by original solid wood doors, hardware, and wrought iron light fixtures. Just special!
The expansive classic kitchen is huge, well connected to the living areas, and comes with breakfast bar and dining nook. You can hang here! The vintage bathroom with intricate original tile mosaic is in great shape, and fit for a king, with separate shower, tub and water closet, not to mention walk-in closet and master bedroom set up. Both bedrooms at the rear of this level are large and quiet, overlooking the backyard gardens and accompanied by some downtown views!
The hallway stairs lead down to a huge 3-car garage and lower level living area, currently set up as a separate in-law unit, though easily connected if you so desire. There is a brand-new kitchen and bathroom, along with sleeping area and quite gorgeous family room with wood burning fireplace and French doors to the back yard. And what a deep, sunny back yard it is, with lemon tree, mature shrubs and flowers, patio and brick work pathways. Room for a small urban farm too!
This is not a fixer, but there is further expansion potential, and boy, what reward any further investment would bring in such a premium location. Between your back yard, and front garden – Precita Park – live the dream of the ultimate indoor/outdoor California lifestyle so sought after in sunny Bernal Heights!
