How would you like your neighbors to be Wise Sons, True Sake, Credo Beauty, and Madison Reed—not to mention the many more restaurants, bars, and boutiques that make Hayes Valley one of San Francisco's most desirable 'hoods?
If you've got the down payment—and the family to make use of four bedrooms and four baths over 3,300 fully renovated square feet—this modern home on Grove Street, between Laguna and Octavia, is ideally situated for living local in the city.
Built in 1900, the three-story single-family home has been fitted with a fully contemporary open design and all the creature comforts, with high ceilings, modern fixtures, artistic tiles, and stylish bathrooms throughout.
The hub of the home is at street level, where the living and dining areas are fully open to one another, each with direct access to a balcony overlooking the backyard. The chef's kitchen provides some pop with custom blue cabinetry, floating shelving, and a linear marble-and-wood island. Designed for gatherings, the space also has a wet bar with refrigerated storage. An additional family room has a trio of windows overlooking the tree-lined street.
A showpiece in itself, the steel-cable staircase takes us up to the top floor, where there are three bedrooms, including the master suite with its own walk-in closet and private deck. The master bathroom has interesting tile flooring, a floating marble and wood vanity, and a combination soaking tub and shower accented with copper fixtures.
Take the floating stairs to the lowest level and you'll find a full guest suite with its own kitchen, wet bar, another polished bathroom with herringbone tile and dark fixtures, and a bright living area that opens to the fenced-in yard with a gas fire pit. Get ready for cozy evenings beneath the stars.
