As if picture windows overlooking the forest and Sutro Tower weren't enough, this 1917 English Tudor–style home turns up the charm with romantic cottage vibes.
A sweet garden announces a front door with leaded and stained glass panels, which open onto a jewel box foyer. To the left is the high-drama sunken living room with high ceilings, the original wood paneling and hardwood floors, and a baronial stone fireplace, all encased in two walls of windows.
A formal, banquet-sized dining room with a canopy has ornate plaster moldings, wood paneling, and windows looking onto the garden. Also on the bottom level is a simple but size-able kitchen with white quartz counters and a light-filled breakfast nook—you can almost hear the birds chirping outside the corner windows.
Take the open banister staircase up to a small balcony above the living room and wander on to three bedrooms with en suite baths. A large master bedroom is the largest of the spaces with a cozy sitting alcove, sweeping walk-in closet and vintage-looking bath with a walk-in shower and standalone soaking tub.
On the bottom level is another large area that can be used as a game room, fitness center, or guest bedroom. It's perfectly quaint with a touch of old world charm, worthy for any modern day Snow White.
