This handsome Richmond style home, ca 1927, is located on a lovely tree lined Noe Valley block. The stucco faced facade, with its two story slant front bay above the classic combed brick base (so characteristic of the better homes built in the city in the 1920's) is capped with a thin unornamented cornice. The 30 foot width of this home is highly unusual for Noe Valley and gives it an imposing street presence in addition to very large rooms.

The tall arched entryway leads to a tile landing with beveled glass front door and side panels.  A long hall separates the living room from the dining room, and leads to the second floor stairway. There is a very large living room with working fireplace, faced with split buff brick and flanked by glass door bookcases on each side. The formal dining room opens to a good sized sun room overlooking the garden. The kitchen has white enameled cabinets with formica countertops, and a breakfast alcove with built in table and seating, with many windows that also overlook the garden. There is a half bath between the kitchen and hallway. Upstairs is a large master bedroom suite with full bath, two large closets, and two other generous sized bedrooms, both overlooking the garden. There is a second full bath with separate toilet off the upstairs hall.

This home is richly detailed with the original gumwood moldings and doors, and high coved ceilings and picture moldings.   The front door and most interior doors on the main floor have beveled glass panels and the front bay window is accented with opalescent glass lites. The handsome bannister and stairs to the second floor are illuminated by a skylight. The entire house, despite its size, is very bright and open. Systems have been upgraded with circuit breakers, copper supply plumbing, and anchor bolting. The basement is large with high ceilings and offers excellent development potential. It opens directly to a huge level rear yard that gets good sun. The yard is nicely landscaped with mature trees. There is a washer/dryer in a laundry alcove. Houses of this size and traditional architectural quality, and so well located, are rare in Noe Valley.   


Noe Valley is a wonderful family neighborhood known for its good weather and cultural life. Both the 24th Street and the Church Street shopping areas are an easy walk, yet far enough away to avoid commercial traffic. There is excellent public transportation on the Church Street light rail to BART and the Embarcadero, and easy access to the Peninsula and South Bay.
