Gorgeous Gem with Breathtaking Views
With panoramic vistas stretching from Twin Peaks and McLaren Park to the San Francisco Bay, this enchanting view home in Crocker Amazon Heights will charm and entice you from the moment you arrive. From its commanding position on a quiet residential cul-de-sac, the terracota hues of its facade radiate out beyond the purple pop of Princess flowers and the subtle tones of the Juniper evergreen, setting in motion your first impressions.
Built in 1954, this two-story semi-detached home offers a warm Travertine-floored entrance foyer that leads you up a gracious staircase to the main living level. With original hardwood parque oak flooring, this 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom home offers spacious and bright living and dining spaces to relax in while the glow of the brick-surround fireplace sets the tone. A large and bright galley-style kitchen with stainless steel appliances, skylight and eat-in breakfast nook connects to the dining room, hallway and sunroom. Beyond the custom Anderson doors, the fully permitted sunroom offers the most remarkable year-round indoor/outdoor insulated living space to enjoy the spectacular park and water views, both day and night. Flanking the sunroom are two separate sundecks, also accessible from a bedroom through custom Anderson french doors -- one side for al-fresco dining and the other to sit back and relax around a custom Firepit.
The lower level offers two large independent parking spaces, plus an expansive laundry and storage area. These unfinished areas do not escape the discerning eye for future expansion potential -- perhaps a large master bedroom/bathroom suite or a spacious family room that opens out to the large flat terrace beyond. Imagination engaged, creativity abound, this makes for an interesting proposition of added future value.
Beyond the backdoor lies a double-wide (50-feet) 4,338 square foot landscaped view lot, with a covered flat terrace to enjoy the vistas and greenery of the private and secure yard that slopes down away from the house. The new exterior stairs provide gentle and easy access to the furthest reaches of the gardens that include mature trees, fruit trees, raised beds and flowering bushes.
