Multi-level Townhome with Heart and Soul
This spacious townhome that lives like a single-family home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of the Bernal, Noe Valley, Mission corridor.
You’ll be swept away by the western & east-facing views which include Sutro Tower, Twin Peaks and Bernal Heights Park.
The interior is equally impressive with top of the line finishes, gourmet kitchen appliances, new carpet, refinished floors and fresh paint. It’s the perfect spot to nest in place.
While you are nesting away, you will enjoy fast download speeds & great internet connectivity with a state of the art Ubiquiti network and wireless components. An interior garage camera, as well as an exterior camera & a Ring cam, will provide peace of mind when you venture outside knowing you can keep an eye on your prized possession.
The lower level has a large two-car garage with ample storage. Your car won’t rack up miles since this location is a walker’s paradise with a walkscore of 95! You will love the bonus room on this level which is perfect as a serene home office space, especially practical with our current work from home days.
Stairs lead up to the main level and the soul of the home. The spacious great room is anchored with a wood-burning fireplace that is piped for a gas starter/full gas fireplace, perfect for those spare-the-air days. You will enjoy widescreen movie viewing as well as enjoying your favorite playlists that will stream via in-ceiling Golden Ear speakers. Watch the game, host a Picard viewing party or be the go-to spot for gaming. When you’re ready to take a break get some fresh air on the lovely slate terrace and take in the western city views of Twin Peaks & Diamond Heights. Get ready for serious entertaining once the SIP has been lifted!

Bernal Heights is a sprawling neighborhood atop one of the steepest peaks in San Francisco. While it is not an obvious tourist destination, nor heavily visited by San Franciscans in general, the community within its borders keep a bustling small-town feel equipped with all of the essentials of life.
Curving down the center of the neighborhood is Cortland Avenue, the main commercial thoroughfare as well as Mission Street in its southern quarter. The entire neighborhood is a hotbed for artists, restaurants, and small-business owners putting down roots around every corner. It is no exaggeration that the community resembles a small town; they even have their own newspaper, the Bernal Journal.
Bernal Heights is alive with green spaces, filled with kids and dogs. On the south end of the district is Holly Park, and at the top of the hill is the massive Bernal Heights Park with views that give way to the downtown skyline, and one of the most popular off-leash dog parks in the city. North of that is Precita Park, recently revived with the arrival of Precita Park Cafe, which shares its sidewalks with the many families that congregate around the northern border of the district.
Bernal Heights is one of the best-kept secrets of San Francisco, a city within a city, hiding behind the chaos while creating its own uniquely invigorating pace of life.
