I Want This $1.5M Victorian in S.F.'s Haight-Ashbury
The three-bedroom, one-bath condo is in the Haight-Ashbury district, where the hippie movement was born and the nearby intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets was one of the most popular spots in the 1960s.
The home has the detailing you'd expect to see in a Victorian home, with enough charm to remind your grandmother of her youth. The condo has high ceilings with plenty of tall windows that let in plenty of light in the casual seating and a dining area that overlooks the rear garden.
The upstairs has three bedrooms and a spa-like marble bathroom with a separate shower and tub. A two-car garage and laundry area are included, as is a driveway, making parking easy in a city not known for easy parking.
One of the best things about this beautiful home is that it's in an excellent neighborhood that is very walkable.
Within walking distance are a farmer's market, restaurants, shops, coffee shops, bistros and everything to give it a quaint, international feel. The wonderful Buena Vista Park is also a close walk away.
There are many great neighborhoods in San Francisco to live in, and at $1.5 million, the Haight-Ashbury district is one of the most expensive to get into. But worth it if you can afford it.
