Classic Edwardian in Vibrant Mission Dolores
This classic Edwardian, built in 1912, has retained its period charm. Enter through the columned archway into the double parlor where a bay window fills the space with sun, and a gas fireplace warms residents in the evening. Coved ceilings and picture molding remind residents of the delicate care given to home design at the time this home was built. The kitchen and dining room have also guarded some time-capsule elements. In the dining room, a built-in hutch creates storage and an elegant display in one. The kitchen includes a galley (with its own sink) as well as space for a breakfast nook. The kitchen and dining room have solid bones and some great elements, but are ready to be brought into the 2000s by a dedicated homeowner. These spaces present a unique opportunity for someone with vision to craft a customized space. The two bedroom, one bath upper unit lets out onto a small private deck for some fresh air. The lower level consists of a two car garage and legal in-law unit. The in-law unit includes one bedroom, one bathroom, and a private entrance. One of the draws of this home is its proximity to all kinds of San Francisco essentials. Walking distance from Dolores Park and Noe-Beaver mini-park, this property is perfectly placed for residents to enjoy Mission Dolores, one of the few San Francisco neighborhoods with sun. Also within blocks is a menagerie of well-known restaurants from the Saucy Asian to Kitchen Story. Should the homeowners ever want to venture outside of Mission Dolores, the J Church (16th St. & Church St. stop) is a one minute walk away. It’s no wonder this home received a walk score of 95 out of 100.

The Mission Dolores neighborhood is an undeniably perfect representation of the diversity within San Francisco, from cultures and ethnicities, to activities, celebrations and architecture.
Mission Dolores offers the most varied options in residential living with single-family homes, lofts, apartments, condos, multi-unit buildings, rooms, and even driveways and garages available for rent. Victorian and Edwardian style homes blanket a majority of the neighborhood giving it an old-fashioned authenticity, while stylish contemporary homes and condominiums give it a modern vibe.
Sheltered from the fog, Mission Dolores is one of the sunniest neighborhoods in San Francisco, which makes it an ideal home for Mission Dolores Park. The popularity of this park soars across every community in the city, and with its sprawling 16 acres, it has something for everyone. The newly renovated playground attracts families with tots to teens, while the full tennis and basketball courts are open for play for all levels of athletes. Annual and seasonal events held here attract crowds from all over the Bay Area, whether it is a national holiday or a summer movie in the park.
Public transit is present in multiple forms throughout the neighborhood, making it easy to access from every corner of the city. And the destination restaurants and cafes that have exploded in this neighborhood continue to grow and attract the large population of foodies from around the Bay, and from around the globe.
With shopping, dining, shared outdoor green space, and residential properties of every kind, Mission Dolores is a quintessential big city neighborhood full of character, vitality and diversity. Becoming a resident here means you may never want to leave the neighborhood again.
