VICTORIAN JEWEL SET AT THE FOOT OF ALAMO SQUARE
One of the storied homes of Alamo Square, this postcard-perfect Victorian was built in 1888 by renowned architect, Gustav Behrend. The history is entrancing – flip through the Alamo Square book to find out more – but it lives just as comfortably today, redone in 2016 to adhere to condo conversion code. Set at the foot of Alamo Square Park, the richly detailed façade holds court along a tree-lined street dotted with other classic beauties for an elegant residential feel.
Before you even enter, this condo will steal your heart with its lush private courtyard. Relish the calm of the neighborhood as you sip your morning coffee or sample Pinots around the fire pit. Double-wide entry French doors link the courtyard to open kitchen/living/dining areas for easy, breezy entertaining. The floor plan is thoughtfully configured with social spaces in the front and bedrooms in the rear. Dining and play areas are smartly connected by an updated kitchen – snacks, anyone?
Ample natural light highlights a clean white interior. Original whitewashed red oak floors run throughout. Bedrooms are bright and spacious, each with its own character-rich details. Double French doors welcome you into the primary, where built-in shelves flank the en suite bathtub as a reminder of the home’s heritage. A window-front office nook inspires in bedroom two. There is another room boasting a multi-level chock-full of charm with built-in bookshelves -a fun space for creative minds, it easily converts into home office, artists’ studio, or gym.
Large shared storage room with washer/dryer directly adjacent to the unit. One-car tandem parking.
