Home for Sale in San Francisco's Emerging Bernal Heights, $1.1M

160 Mahcnester St., San Francisco, CASan Francisco's Bernal Heights neighborhood is undergoing a transition that's taking it beyond what it's been known for: excellent hilltop views of the city. For a little more than $1 million, you can buy a house in this vibrant neighborhood. It's not likely to stay that affordable for long.

The New York Times
recently highlighted Bernal Heights for its culinary scene and its mix of markets selling foods from around the world.

What can you get for around $1 million in Bernal Heights? This home at 160 Manchester St., for example. Here are the details:
The area's main shopping district, Cortland Avenue, is only a three-block walk from the home after passing through Bernal Hill Park. The 35-acre park is right across the street from the house, and if you have a dog, it's a great place to go because of its off-leash rule. Bernal Heights is also known for being child friendly and for its artistic tradition.

The 1,643-square-foot home has three bedrooms on one level, and 2.5 baths. It's a contemporary three-story, designed by architect William Stout and built in 1981.

Huge windows flood the house with natural light and offer views of downtown, the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge -- making this place on a cul-de-sac a great place to come home to. It also has hardwood floors throughout, a fireplace and mirrored wall in the living area, separate dining room, bright kitchen, large garage and lots of storage.

Enjoy the outdoors on its three decks and in its landscaped garden.

Comparable homes in the neighborhood have an average sold price of $1,125,000. A nearby home at 1487 Noe St. with three bedrooms and two baths in 1,575 square feet sold for $1.3 million.
