Behind her pristine period façade and impeccable woodwork detail, this Painted Lady Victorian reveals two personalities: a large lower unit that has retained all of its Victorian charm, and a capacious upper unit that exemplifies a modern city dwelling. This well maintained, two-unit building is detached on three sides and located on a quiet block in the bustling Mission District.

Unit 772 is a vacant, three bedroom, two bathroom home, which has been fully transformed into a stylish, urban residence. Anchored by newly refinished, warm Brazilian teak hardwood floors, this open concept home feels both voluminous and cozy. With its soaring 11 foot ceilings accented by a contemporary pendant light, the spacious main living space is filled with light from the large windows, vented skylight above the living room, and a large sliding glass door that leads from the kitchen and den to a private upper deck. The modern, upscale kitchen features a BlueStar range, Jenn-Air refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher and unique Sycamore cabinets. Just off the kitchen is a large laundry closet with plentiful storage and stacked LG washer and dryer. A side door off the den leads to the staircase down to the inviting, low maintenance garden.

The primary suite at the front of the residence features a bright nook with tall windows on three sides. There is a generous wall of closets with shelving and frosted glass sliding doors, and a spacious bathroom with a shower over a deep, soaking tub.

Two well proportioned bedrooms and a full bath opposite the living room complete this residence. This unit includes a large garage with plenty of space for a workshop, and a large 650+ square foot bonus room that can be used as an office, gym and hobby room, all at once.

770 is the lower three bedroom, two bathroom tenant occupied unit, replete with beautifully maintained period details including: original Douglas Fir hardwood floors, wainscoting and picture rails throughout, and decorative woodwork around the doorframes and windows. Both bathrooms have colorful hexagon tile floors, pedestal sinks, and the hall bathroom features a lovely clawfoot tub. At the rear of the home is a spacious open kitchen and living room that leads to a sunny dining area, which has French doors that open to a large deck.

This dwelling is located near the heart of the Mission District, with easy access to the great variety of trendy bars, bakeries/coffee shops and restaurants. Peruse the colorful creations from Heath tile while you wait for delicious baked goods and other treats at Tartine Manufactory. Brunch on the patio at Foreign Cinema, indulge in pizza and pasta at Flour + Water, visit local standbys like Atlas Cafe and Heirloom Cafe, or get a taste of Asia at Farmhouse Thai or San Ho Won. Enjoy innovative cocktails at Trick Dog or True Laurel, or grab a craft beer at Southern Pacific Brewing, or sample the unique ice cream flavors at Humphry Slocombe. Enjoy easy access to BART, Muni and 101. Walk Score 98, Walker’s Paradise.

Sunny, flat, and centrally located, the Mission represents the heart and especially the soul of San Francisco. Equally attractive to immigrants and a burgeoning herd of hipsters in ironic t-shirts, the Mission is still the melting pot of San Francisco. Here you’ll find traditional Mexican taquerias and panaderias, pop up galleries, freshly minted block-long live/work lofts in former canneries, and a new generation of chefs determined to make their mark and earn a Michelin star. The neighborhood is highly walkable: a major urban shopping center at 16th and Potrero offers groceries, a gym, post office, office supplies, and a Peets Coffee. The museum district at 3rd and Howard is nearby, and the ball park is not far. Public Transportation is great. MUNI bus lines crisscross the neighborhoods and there are two BART stations at 16th and Mission and 24th and Mission which serve the neighborhood.

With the rise of the dot-coms in the mid-90s, the old industrial warehouses of the Mission district were converted into open air, open concept workspaces. These attracted a new kind of population: educated, highly-skilled, and eagerly looking for the next big thing: be it entertainment, dining, culture, or dance club. And they wanted to be able to walk to work, or at least ride their bike.Housing was developed to match the taste and needs of this generation of newcomers. Many of the old warehouses preserved their old brick facades. Inside luxury interiors feature exposed brick walls, huge timbered beams, two-story high living rooms with airy ceilings, industrial kitchens, and of course, high speed Internet connections.

Stately turn-of-the-century homes line the sunny blocks of this uniquely San Franciscan district. In between its main thoroughfares of Dolores, Guerrero, and Valencia, you can find many smaller hidden architectural treasures dotting the intimate cross-street alleyways.

San Francisco’s oldest building stands at the corner of 16th and Dolores. Constructed in 1776, Mission Dolores draws the gaze of passersby with its clean, early-colonial Mexican style. It remains an active Roman Catholic church, and is open daily for services and to visitors alike. Just around the corner is Dolores Park, one of the city’s great neighborhood hangouts, where you might be lucky enough to catch an outdoor performance by the San Francisco Mime Troupe. Time seems of no consequence on sunny afternoons while families recline along the comfortably sloping landscape. Daytime is for the sun-worshipping crowds, while warm nights are all about people watching.

Valencia Street is among the hippest nighttime destination on the planet. Throngs of young folks dropping into the trendy new eateries, filling the local watering holes for their fix of poetry and music, hitting the local performance spaces for inspired avant-garde happenings. You will find a cultural mecca, as well as a food experience beyond compare along these lively streets.
Public transportation is as good as it gets in the Mission. Two BART stations, at 16th and Mission and 24th and Mission, complement a complete bus schedule to downtown and beyond.
