Cole Valley is already pretty quaint, what with its neighborhood shops, mimosas flowing at Zazie, and leafy canopy from Sutro Forest.
If setting out the welcome mat in this San Francisco neighborhood is your idea of utter contentment, then this storybook 1932 Tudor, designed by architect Martin J. Rist, would spell happily ever after.
On an oversized wooded lot, the 2,710-square-foot, three-level house feels like Snow White's pimped-out cottage with all the period details, shingle roof, and arched front door. Inside, a vaulted foyer, field stone and hardwood floors, wood beam ceilings, and intricately carved fireplaces and stained glass windows complete the fairytale picture.
Grandeur abounds in dramatic windows and archways in the living room, formal dining room, and study. There are also two balconies on the main floor for taking in panoramas of the city and the East Bay.
There are two bedrooms upstairs including the airy master suite, which has its own sitting area, copious amounts of closet space and a dressing room, and large bathroom with a soaking tub.
On the lower level is another bedroom and a deck overlooking the rear gardens, as well as an extra room for storage. The home may be steps from Tank Hill and Sutro Forest trails, but you can also descend into your backyard and meander through the tiered grounds or chill in multiple sitting areas.
Don't worry, you can redo the kitchen.
