Opportunities abound in this single-family home with both approved plans for a verticle expansion and Airbnb bonus space on the lower level. The main level will impress with its original detail such as the box beam ceiling and wood paneling in the dining room and cozy fireplace in the family room with views of Twin Peaks and Sutro Tower. The updated and modern kitchen is anchored by a large center island that invites gathering. 2 bedrooms, an updated modern bathroom, a desk alcove, and a laundry area complete this level. Venture outside to access two levels of patio and terraces that command expansive Twin Peaks and hill views.
The front living room has a charming wood-burning fireplace and has great views of Sutro Tower from the bay windows. The adjoining formal dining room has plenty of room for large gatherings, beautiful box beam ceilings, and original wood paneling on the walls. Tucked away is a charming bar cart area with shelving for extra storage.
The updated modern kitchen is open and bright with a large skylight, a center island, and an abundance of counter space. Adjacent to the kitchen is a built-in desk area with built-in cabinetry matching the kitchen cabinets. Continue past the kitchen to find a laundry area with hookups, the kitchen refrigerator, and access to the outdoor area.
Off the hallway, you find a bathroom that has been fully renovated with permits and includes a step-in spa-like shower. Over the sink is an extra-large LED mirror.
In the backyard, you will find 2 patio levels. The first level with a cement floor is tucked away and includes the charm of an old claw-foot tub that could be plumbed to use as an outdoor tub or use as a unique planter. Continue up one level to enter the main patio area of the backyard. This spacious area includes plenty of room for a large table, a sitting area, and grilling. This level has awe-inspiring views of Twin Peaks, Sutro Tower, and the southern hills.
The lower-level bonus space includes a full bathroom and has a positive short-term rental history. This space is permitted by the city of San Francisco for short-term rental use and has a solid history of bookings. This space can be used for income...help pay your mortgage each month or save for a vacation fund! It can also be used as a dedicated home office with full privacy from the main home, perfect for Zoom meetings, or offer this space to your guests for their own dedicated area. The one-car garage with an EV charging outlet includes extra storage and workbench space.
This home comes with fully approved plans to add a vertical extension and a complete remodel that will join the first two levels, add a third level, and a roof deck. The completed home can be a 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom home or 4 bedrooms and a large family/rec room at the lowest level. Detailed plans and explanations of the remodel are available to review.
Great location with easy access to both Potrero and Mission District shops and restaurants as well as freeways, MUNI, tech bus stops and more. Don't miss this unique home!
One of the best kept secrets for many years, Potrero Hill was once the blue collar home of shipping docks, storehouses, and the simple shops and bakeries frequented by the families who called it home. The big turnaround came on the heels of the dot-com revolution when many of the warehouses and factories in the area were transitioned into the live-work lofts and offices we know today. Development along Third Street has solidified this area's reputation as an exciting destination, with an unparalleled ease of commute to downtown SF.
Among Potrero Hill's many assets, its sunny weather, fantastic views, and ready access to all highways rank high on the list. A hardy neighborhood, there are a great many early Victorians along its charming streets which remarkably withstood the earthquake of 1906.
Eateries, bars and shops along 18th street are plentiful in options. The classic watering hole Blooms, named for the heroine of Ulysses, offers pool tables, awe-inspiring views, and fantastic people watching. Chez Papa offers the best French Provencal bistro cuisine this side of the Sierra Nevada. And please don't miss Farley's, where an easy-going coffee drinking crowd enjoy daily brews strong enough to cut through any misty morning.
Students and young folks help liven things up just enough thanks to the nearby California College of Art campus, the California Culinary Academy, and local bar The Bottom of the Hill, which hosts an amazing array of music acts not to be missed. You'll find plenty of shopping and grocery options close to 16th and Potrero.
If you've never visited Potrero Hill, get ready to be romanced by this charming hillside respite.
