In 1978, a teacher got a piece of the pie and thrived for years in this charming home. She was a significant figure, not only as a much-loved neighbor, but also as a driving-force to help plan and build the Athens-Avalon Green Space and stairs on this delightful block. There is even a bench in front of the home that the owner would sit on to talk to the neighbors; it continues to be used! The original cottage was improved, expanded and well-loved by her, enjoying over 45 years in the home. After her passing, it’s time to pass the torch and the opportunity to a new generation. The home is a blank canvas for you to ponder, plan and alter. The floor plan is flexible, and there could be opportunities to move things around. An open-beamed ceiling in the living room gives the home a modern, lofty appeal. The tax record shows 1,022 square feet and one bedroom, although it could be used like two. Decks on two levels, a large garden and views to Twin Peaks and Sutro Tower are icing on the cake. The Excelsior is on the south side of the city, so if you happen to be commuting to the Peninsula, it’s convenient. Balboa Park BART, MUNI, John McLaren Park (which has phenomenal walking/hiking paths), is several blocks away, as are Mission St. shops, coffee and restaurants.
