Located in the family friendly Portola District (tucked between Bernal Heights and the Bayview), this Marina Style, single family home shows pride of ownership throughout. A well laid out floor plan lends you to feel this is much bigger than 1700 sq.ft.
Many updates been done throughout this wonderfully cared for home through the years. Originally a one bath home, a full remodel was done to the basement creating a separate, 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment with a kitchen/family room combination.
The main home on the upper floor features an updated kitchen with granite counters and full backsplash, light brown cabinetry and stainless-steel and black combination appliances including a 4-burner gas range with griddle, French Door Style Refrigerator with ice maker, built in microwave, double sinks and a dishwasher. An island with seating and glass doored cabinetry above separates the kitchen from a breakfast nook or sitting area. Additional storage is abundant in the home with two large closets off the kitchen area, (one could be used as a walk-in pantry), a storage area at the top of the stairs and an entry hall closet.
There are two bedrooms in the main home, one of them being the spacious master bedroom with 2 closets. A separate bathroom which is beautifully remodeled with tiled walls and a tub shower combination is bright and spacious.
The front formal room of the home still features many of San Francisco’s original architecture characteristics; wood trimmed windows and doorways, solid wood doors with glass knobs, a framed mirrored wall, a wall to wall brick fireplace with mantle and hearth, original glass door bookshelves on one side and a drop-down credenza desk with storage on the other side. The formal dining room can be accessed through the kitchen or the front room and all three rooms have wood laminate flooring.
The apartment’s kitchen is beautifully done with granite counters and full backsplash, white cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances including a Samsung gas range and a French Door Style Refrigerator.
Tile floors grace the kitchen/ living area of the apartment and the walls are accented with a painted brick half wall all around plus a beautiful corner fireplace with mantel and hearth lending to the charm of this open area. The 2 bedrooms have easy care laminate flooring and share the handsomely designed Jack and Jill bathroom. The apartment has access to the single car garage which houses the washer dryer hookup and has 2 separate storage rooms. This apartment can be completely locked off from the main house if the new owners want to use it as a rental unit or it is a great space for extended families.
Access the private back yard through a side gate - or from the house to an enclosed back yard with a large deck and a multitude of fruit bearing trees; Plum, lemon, loquat, prune and bay leaf!

The Portola area was named for Don Gaspar de Portola - an explorer in 1769 who was charged with finding Monterey Bay. He overshot his target and stumbled upon San Francisco Bay instead. In the early 1900s it remained mostly agricultural with cattle grazing on the hills, and produce and flower gardens near what is now the 101. Today, the Portola neighborhood is approximately one square mile in size with a high percentage of owner-occupied single-family homes. Residents can be found taking a stroll through McLaren Park or shopping along San Bruno Avenue- home to a variety of eateries, markets, bakeries, many schools, churches, a business strip and the groundbreaking Family Connections community resource center. Family Connections was established in Portola in 1993 and exists to develop healthy families, thriving communities and opportunities to share cultures, values, knowledge and resources.
