2 Bedroom Bernal Heights Cottage

Here’s a pretty neat Bernal Heights Cottage at 153 Wool that has a very flexible floor plan.  Well-located on the North side of Cortland, this Edwardian cottage is a single family being used as two units.  Upstairs is two bedroom, one and half bath and the lower level is one bedroom, one gorgeous remodeled bath.

153 Wool exterior

Home office, art studio, or guest quarters-lots of flexibility.

Lower level toward private garden

What I found really cool about it, is that each level has it’s own designated outdoor area, so if used as two units-as a residence and perhaps a home office, each has it’s own space.  Bonus, they are pretty secluded from neighbor view.

Nice Edwardian detail intact and a sensitive, modern remodel.  Entire property is occupied by the owner and listed for $999,000.  Available to see by appointment.

February update:

After only a few weeks on the market, the property was withdrawn from the market, although MLS shows that the property is still available for sale off the market.

Old San Francisco Telegraph Hill Victorian for sale

You don’t see many of these homes for sale.  Located near Coit Tower, 15 Napier Lane is on a wooden sidewalk accessed only by the Filbert Street Steps.  Very ‘Tales of the City’ location, and beautifully remodeled. For character, you can hear (and see) the wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill right outside your door.

Accessing the property, you can imagine how it must have been in old San Francisco, coming home from a Barbary Coast Saloon.  The listing states that the home was built in 1884.

Two bedrooms, two baths and a wonderful garden accessed from both floors.  There is a wonderful sun room that would make a terrific office.  Listed at $1,295,000.  Given it’s location, obviously, no parking.  The good news, is that you can give up your gym membership.  Available by appointment.

April update:

After four months on the market, the home was reduced to $1,230,000.  It’s been a month since that change and still no takers.  Could it be the stairs?
