On Gates Street in the quaint urban village that is Bernal Heights, the blue facade and yellow door of this 1906 home are the only hints at its Victorian origin.
Inside, its historical ties melt into a fully modern three-bedroom dwelling with contemporary spaces that are open and airy thanks to vaulted ceilings and skylights.
The main level has been opened up entirely to create an sunny floor plan with indoor/outdoor vibes. Clean design reigns in the seamless gathering spaces, kitchen, and adjacent terrace. The cooking space is well suited to chefs with a large island, a six-burner Thermador range, and a built-in Bosch espresso machine. Stone and wood surfaces lend an organic, stylish tone.
The upper and lower levels comprise three bedrooms and a flexible office space, as well as three-and-a-half bathrooms that are showstoppers for modernists who dig things like floating wood cabinets, glass-enclosed toilets, and marble walls and countertops.
The hardscaped backyard is shaded by a mature avocado tree—toast, anyone?
