This little house is very likely the cutest property you’ve ever laid eyes on, is part of 2 City Lots. One lot with frontage on Stanton Street, the second lot with frontage on Yukon Street.
Off one of the most scenic driving vistas in the City, 86 Stanton sits in a little dell, down flagstone steps, with a terraced stone-paved front yard and grassy side yard all your own.
Inside the cottage is light and airy, with two skylights, bleached hardwood floors, a peaked beamed roof. Glass block brings natural light into the bathroom. And, with doors swung open onto the terrace, a most wonderful space for entertaining on balmy nights. Coffee on the terrace any morning, a sexy weekend brunch or spicy al fresco dinner are begging to be experienced here.
It will be difficult to lure you from your cozy lair, but should you want to wander through this most picturesque of neighborhoods, stroll down to the Castro Theater for a marvelous classic film or one of the City’s spectacular film festivals. Like the Asian American film festival in March, the San Francisco International in April or the Arab Film Festival in October.
THIS is the time and place to tap into your inner artist. Go deep and write in bed all day like Proust, or Colette. Get out your watercolors and paint in the garden or on your own quaint street. Walk over to Kite Hill with your puppy to gather inspiration from nature, animals and the community around you. Or, spend the weekend turning out masterpieces on the petite and powerful Viking range, using the Carrera marble countertops, so perfect for rolling out doughs and turning out confections.
This most romantic little (435 square feet) 1918 cottage is offered completely furnished and has been recently remodeled with top class amenities:
As well as a Viking range and Carrera marble countertops, the Pedini kitchen holds a full range of dishes, pots/pans and flatware.
A Queen bed and bed linens in a bedroom with gossamer window coverings and softly carpeted floor.
Eureka Valley is one of San Francisco’s most vibrant and walker-friendly neighborhoods. Filled with Victorian-era gems, this exciting area sits at the crossroads of Noe Valley, Mission Dolores, the Valencia Corridor and the Castro. Its multiple Muni bus routes and proximity to Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) make Eureka Valley a convenient location for commuting throughout the Bay Area.
After the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, when much of the City was destroyed by fire, Eureka Valley escaped major damage. Thousands of earthquake refugees poured into the area and erected gingerbread clad cottages and flats. Today, those lovingly maintained Victorian-era homes line street after beautiful street.
Nearby Noe Valley is a paradise for foodies, with its array of lively bistros, cafes and the Noe Valley Baking Company. Valencia Street, just east of Eureka Valley, is lined with hip restaurants and bright street murals. The Mission District offers funky coffeehouses, bookstores, art galleries and avant-garde theater.
The Castro District, the heart of Gay San Francisco, throws the annual Castro Street Fair with live entertainment, DJs, food vendors, community-group stalls and an artisan alley with dozens of Northern California artists. The historic Castro Street Theater, with its mighty Wurlitzer organ, presents an eclectic mix of old movies and plays.
On warm days, locals head for Mission Dolores Park, where they enjoy the sun, along with stunning views of the City and the East Bay. Families throng to the park for picnics, barbeques and spontaneous games of soccer.
Real estate options in Eureka Valley include sunny, multi-family flats, single family homes and condos. Many homes have decks and private gardens. Hillside homes provide lovely views of the East Bay, downtown San Francisco, Twin Peaks and Corona Heights.
