Welcome home to this top floor, rear-facing Victorian with tall windows and high ceilings, detached on 3 sides, and awash in southern light!
You'll love the updated kitchen w/romantic exposed brick & space for a breakfast nook by the window. The adjacent formal dining room and spacious living room with tall windows on two sides deliver a clean, open flow and a great sense of volume. Wainscotting and picture moldings in the living room provide a nice touch of period detail, counterbalanced with recessed lighting and contemporary bamboo flooring. The seller remodeled the bathroom and enlarged a custom-tiled walk-in shower. In addition to two very spacious bedrooms, there's a home office nook w/attic-level storage constructed overhead. There's also attic storage above the rear bedroom.
This unit has an especially large, private storage room in the basement well lit by a side window. A laundry room for the bldg can also be found on this level. The rear yard oasis features a lush & sunny flagstone patio, with built-in L-shaped wooden bench and other seating where you'll feel totally removed from the hubbub of the city.
This bldg is located in historic Alamo Square, an area known for its unique collection of iconic turn-of-the-century buildings. The facade of 865 Hayes features an Eastlake-inspired explosion of gingerbread detail, elegant spindled balustrades, accentuated trim and picturesque millwork, plus numerous other inventive details that will delight the architectural enthusiast.
Your new home is situated just a few blocks from both Divco & Hayes Valley, where you'll find numerous highly-rated restaurants and places to meet and be seen. Patricia's Green in Hayes Valley with its upscale bistros and the gentle slopes of Alamo Sq Park overlooking the world-famous "Postcard Row" Victorians are each just a few minutes away by foot. There is an especially picturesque children's playground a few blocks away (the "Hayes Valley Playground"). Tech shuttles are nearby and the onramp for driving to the east or south bay is a short distance away. You'll never tire of this great location in the center of it all!
