I Want This Mediterranean S.F. House, $879K

Balboa Terrace is the kind of peaceful San Francisco neighborhood I'd like to move to one day. It's a tranquil haven located near San Francisco State University, Serromonte Mall, and not very far from the shores of the beach. (Bring a jacket though; the beach is usually cold and foggy.)

In fact, this $879,000 house is situated right on a lovey tree-lined block that faces an open park.

Doesn't that sound like wonderful-ville U.S.A?

Inside, you get three bedrooms, three bathrooms and 1,720 square feet of living in this single-family San Francisco home.

The residence at 160 Aptos Ave. is described as a "Handsome Spanish Mediterranean Home." The market price is a little higher than the average in that area. At $879,000, other three-bedroom listings in that area seem to top out at around $816,000, so you might want to do some wheeling-and-dealing with the Realtor.

But what you get sound pretty impressive on paper: an inviting staircase that leads to a vestibule entrance and into an foyer. The formal living room features a cathedral ceiling, fireplace, period wrought-Iron wall scones and hardwood floors.

Seems like a good home for entertaining, as the formal dining room, complete with chandelier, leads to a light-filled kitchen with a separate breakfast room. Enjoy a morning cup of coffee on your walk-out backyard deck.
