Welcome home to this top floor, rear-facing Victorian with tall windows and high ceilings, detached on 3 sides, and awash in southern light!
You’ll love the updated kitchen w/romantic exposed brick & space for a breakfast nook by the window. The adjacent formal dining room and spacious living room with tall windows on two sides deliver a clean, open flow and a great sense of volume. Wainscotting and picture moldings in the living room provide a nice touch of period detail, counterbalanced with recessed lighting and contemporary bamboo flooring. The seller remodeled the bathroom and enlarged a custom-tiled walk-in shower. In addition to two very spacious bedrooms, there’s a home office nook w/attic-level storage constructed overhead. There’s also attic storage above the rear bedroom.
This unit has an especially large, private storage room in the basement well lit by a side window. A laundry room for the bldg can also be found on this level. The rear yard oasis features a lush & sunny flagstone patio, with built-in L-shaped wooden bench and other seating where you’ll feel totally removed from the hubbub of the city.
This unit is a TIC in a well-established 6-unit bldg.
This bldg is located in historic Alamo Square, an area known for its unique collection of iconic turn-of-the-century buildings. The facade of 865 Hayes features an Eastlake-inspired explosion of gingerbread detail, elegant spindled balustrades, accentuated trim and picturesque millwork, plus numerous other inventive details that will delight the architectural enthusiast.
Your new home is situated just a few blocks from both Divco & Hayes Valley, where you’ll find numerous highly-rated restaurants and places to meet and be seen. Patricia’s Green in Hayes Valley with its upscale bistros and the gentle slopes of Alamo Sq Park overlooking the world-famous “Postcard Row” Victorians are each just a few minutes away by foot. There is an especially picturesque children’s playground a few blocks away (the “Hayes Valley Playground”). Tech shuttles are nearby and the onramp for driving to the east or south bay is a short distance away. You’ll never tire of this great location in the center of it all!
