A renovated Victorian duplex with a beautiful yard in the Mission asks for $ 5 million


There are few places in San Francisco that we like as well as the cross section where the Mission meets Noe Valley meets the Castro. The mix of urban hipster culture, the diversity of the queer scene, the trappings of the family neighborhood and Dolores Park are all within easy walking distance.

This beautifully renovated Victorian duplex on Alvarado Street is located right in the heart of it. Built in 1880, the three-level house retains its elegant old bones but, thanks to a careful renovation, it exudes a fresh contemporary style.

Enter on the main level into a gracious living room with original moldings and bay windows with cornices. From there, proceed into the formal dining room which also has intricate moldings and hardwood floors. These living and entertaining areas easily blend into the kitchen which instantly feels like the heart of the home.

In a modern all-white palette, the kitchen features quartz countertops, a herringbone marble tile backsplash, custom cabinetry, a wine fridge, and a six-burner Wolf range. There’s also plenty of space for sitting and lounging here with a central cascading island and adjacent sunny breakfast room with access to a rear terrace and courtyard below.

A small laundry room and a shower room complete the ground floor.

Up the curved staircase at the front of the house, you will find private quarters consisting of three bedrooms and a bright common living area under a peaked ceiling with skylights. The master suite is a retreat in its own right with a small sitting area, a terrace and several closets, including a large walk-in closet. The master bathroom features floor-to-ceiling tile, a freestanding tub, a Grohe dual-head rain shower, and a white quartz double-sink vanity with veneer veneer panels. walnut.

The lower level houses a second legal unit finished in a contemporary style. There is a bedroom with two closets; a full bathroom with a double sink vanity; and a full kitchen with marble countertops and a turquoise tile backsplash. The apartment has direct access to the backyard.

Speaking of the yard, this is perhaps the best part of the house with polished green landscaping, stone pavers, two large decks, a cabana with a TV, and a built-in barbecue.

Additional amenities inside include multi-zone radiant heat, in-ceiling audio speakers, in-wall Cat6 audio and video cabling, wired alarm system, recessed lighting and a spacious garage.
