On a hilltop cul-de-sac and backed against a leafy park, this midcentury-modern house is worth a look, and not just for the panorama of sights to see—including the San Francisco Bay and San Bruno Mountains—from its many floor-to-ceiling windows.
The restored 1964 residence is set on a verdant 6,270-square-foot lot and, while it's bird's-eye view of SF gives it a sense of being away from it all, the home is located just a few minutes from the central hubs of Noe Valley and Glen Park.
Rebuilt from the studs, the residence has undergone a full seismic retrofit with new electrical, water, gas, and plumbing. There are also new double-paned low-E windows, and dual zone heating and air conditioning.
The interiors have a crisp look thanks to a marriage of the original midcentury bones—including the high A-frame ceiling in the great room, wood-accented walls, and courtyard entrance—and modern elements such as bright blue cabinetry and a custom cloudy backsplash in the kitchen, sleek built-in shelving, and contemporary pendant lighting. Retro vibes permeate the living area with a brick fireplace and breakfast nook with a wraparound booth.
Extra large wood doors conceal the private quarters where three spacious bedrooms awash in natural light and pretty vistas. The bathrooms have polished gray and wood tones, dual sink vanities, and large showers with built-in shelving. Ample closet space is also a bonus here, as is a roomy garage.
The tiered backyard is a lovely retreat for gardening, al fresco dining, and evenings by the fire pit.
