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!

Neighborhood


Located just south of Pacific Heights and to the west of Hayes Valley, Alamo Square is home to some of California's most beautiful and iconic architecture.

The Painted Ladies that run along Steiner and face Alamo Square Park make up one of the city's most recognizable landmarks, so much so that the area was nicknamed Postcard Row, known and recognized all over the world, and the scene of numurous films and commercials.

However, there is much more to this neighborhood than just a photo opportunity. Some of the other notable historical nearby treasures include Westerfield Mansion, the Chateau Tivoli, and the Archbishop's Mansion, which attract legions of architectural students and tourists alike every year. The heart of the neighborhood is Alamo Square Park, which is located in between Fulton and Hayes Street, just a block from 865b Hayes. Park amenities include a dog run, playground and popular tennis courts, all with incredible panoramic views of San Francisco. Newly renovated, the park demonstrates the passion and pride Alamo Square residents take in their neighborhood.

When it's time to unwind, you can visit one of the growing number of hip restaurants, clubs, bar, or bistros that line lively Divisadero (known locally as "Divco"). Some of the local favorites in the area include: The Mill: The combination of hand-roasted coffee beans brewed to perfection along with aromatic baked bread make this a great spot to start your morning or jumpstart your afternoon. Ju-Ni: An upscale bistro serving some of the finest omakase sushi. Nopa: Whether you’re looking for a relaxed dinner with a significant other, a vibrant happy hour with friends or co-workers, or a late-night meal made from the freshest ingredients, Nopa is the place to visit. On the weekend, you'll love the outdoor farmer's market for fresh produce, coffee and meeting your neighbors.

A few blocks in the other direction will take you to hip Hayes Valley, anchored by Patricia's Green right on Hayes @ Octavia. This is the place to be cool, be seen and chill out, with its outdoor benches, Ritual coffee, ice-cream station and biergarten. The next block of Hayes and adjacent Grove and Fulton feature some of the city's best restaurants where you'll want to join with friends after a night at the San Francisco Jazz Center, a concert at the Conservatory of Music or world class performances at the nearby Opera House and Davies Symphony Hall.

A few blocks to the south takes you to Duboce Park, the Panhandle and the Lower Haight while a few blocks to the north takes you to the culinary delights of Japantown and great retail therapy options in Lower Pacific Heights.

San Francisco is a city defined by its micro-neighborhoods, each with a unique, recognizable style. 865b Hayes is especially well located right in the midst of it all, with an enviable Walkscore of 98 (a "Walkers Paradise"). You'll love the centrality of this location and will never be bored!
