Boasting beautiful architecture throughout, 15 - 17 14th Avenue was built circa 1940 by Henry Horn, a quality San Francisco builder, owner of Castle Building Company, leader of the Office of Price Administration during World War II, & San Francisco Realtor. Classic period details include tunnel entrance, wrought-iron detailing, parquet hardwood floors, archways, ornate crown moldings, handsome woodwork, & striking corner fireplace. The interior is flooded with light, features a spacious & smart layout, and has expansive outlooks of trees, greenery & The City.
The entrance to the residence is through a "tunnel" walkway with terrazzo stairs leading up to the front door. A beautiful curved staircase leads to an oversized foyer with an arched opening to the living room. From the foyer, there is also access to the kitchen, and a central hall leading to the rear of the flat.
The truly elegant living & formal dining rooms are connected through a large arched opening allowing for wonderful flow, and creating a lovely, bright & airy entertaining space. Elegant details include a handsome fireplace, window balcony, wall lighting sconces, finished parquet flooring, and big windows looking out towards greenery & mature trees.
Next to the dining room is the remodeled kitchen featuring granite counters, tiled flooring, recessed lighting, and Viking stainless steel appliances. There is a spacious dining area, skylight, and windows overlooking a bright, covered area with stairs to the yard, storage & garage.
The center hallway is illuminated by a large picture window, and leads past an in-closet stacked washer/dryer, and a full luxurious bathroom with limestone, double vanity & soaking tub. Further down the hall is a remodeled half bathroom with mosaic floor & subway tile, as well as additional closet space.
The spacious bedrooms in the back overlook the lovely back yard and offer western City views. Both bedrooms have big walk-in closets with organizers, straight-plank hardwood floors & picture moldings.
The 127 foot deep lot allows for a large back yard, which features a deck with built-in bench seating, brick patio, and lots of mature plantings such as maple trees & rosemary. Enjoy sunny Southern exposure and plenty of room for grilling, outdoor dining, or simply lounging in various areas for seating.
The garage and basement are spacious with a separate tradesman's entrance from the street, and a large private storage room (potential office?) with window to the yard.
The garage currently has tandem parking but there is a $41,000 bid from Add-A-Garage to convert to independent parking.
