Location, Location, Location!!! This is truly the center of The City. Just steps away from all the amenities of the Castro and Upper Market neighborhoods, including a myriad of restaurants, boutiques, shops, services and taverns; the Walk Score is 96 and the Transit Score is 94.
The upper, top floor (#17) apartment has been fully remodeled. New high-end engineered flooring, fresh designer paint, crown molding throughout and new light fixtures in every room. The Kitchen has newly refinished cabinets, a double basin sink and a new engineered solid surface countertop, plus brand new high-end GE stainless steel appliances; french door refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and gas range. The spacious Living Room features a tiled wood burning fireplace and a view of the wooded hillside across the street. The larger of the two Bedrooms has a slider to the rear deck. The large Bathroom has a walk-in shower and newer cabinet and basin. Ahh, but it's the view. The view from the rear deck of the Castro Theater marquee, the old BofA building and the bustling intersection of Market, 17th and Castro is superb. And far beyond as well; the Financial District skyline and the Mission High School bell tower. On a clear day you can see across the bay to the East Bay hills and ridge line, maybe even Mount Diablo.
The lower apartment (#15) on the second floor maintains its mid century amenities; solid oak floors throughout the unit, tile Fireplace in the Living Room, a tile Kitchen with a peninsula and a tile Bathroom which has a tub and a separate stall shower. This flat has essentially the identical floor plan as the top floor flat above. The view from the second floor deck is nearly as wonderful as from the deck above.
The garden level owner's work/art studio in the basement has been fully remodeled, with new high-end engineered flooring, fresh designer paint, crown molding, new light fixtures throughout. The Bathroom has been remodeled with a new vanity cabinet and basin plus a refinished tub/shower. The ground level space is separated into a Library/Office area and a larger Art Studio/Work area. There is a slider onto the rear patio and deck. The outside space is inviting yet private and provides ample room to entertain large gatherings.
There is a two car side-by-side garage with access into the gated vestibule where the stairs lead up to the front doors of the two apartment front doors. The utility room has a commercial clothes washer and dryer plus the furnaces and water heaters for each apartment. Each apartment also has separate gas and electric meters plus there are dedicated storage lockers for each apartment.
Just south of Buena Vista Park and west of the Duboce Triangle is the small affluent neighborhood of Corona Heights. Many streets are narrow, steep, quiet and quaint while 17th Street and Market Street come alive with traffic and commerce.
The architecture runs the gamut from fine Victorians to modern masterpieces. The Randall Museum, located on Museum Way, focuses on arts, crafts, sciences and natural history geared toward children. It has been home for the Golden Gate Model Rail Road Club since 1961. The nearby neighborhoods of the Castro, Haight Ashbury and Cole Valley offer great shopping and dining opportunities, and public transportation is excellent.
