Duplex in the Heart of Bernal Heights

Enjoy living in the heart of Bernal Heights, steps from Cortland Avenue and Bernal Heights Park, in this 2-story duplex with 2-car garage parking. Mornings can be spent grabbing a Pinhole coffee and a Little Bee Bakery pastry, then stocking up on groceries at Good Life. Later, hike one of the many trails in Bernal Heights Park or play tennis and enjoy the views at Holly Park.

Classic San Francisco details run throughout both units, from the eye-catching wainscoting to the high ceilings and crown molding. Shaker doors and framed doorways welcome you to each room. The top unit’s living room is bathed in light from the tall bay windows overlooking Andover Street, as is the Master. Another bedroom and shared bathroom with shower-over-tub sits nearby. An ample eat-in kitchen has views of the backyard and the Bay beyond.

The downstairs unit’s cozy kitchen overlooks the backyard as well, a small deck just outside perfect for a morning cup of coffee. A bedroom and bathroom round out the bottom level.

Both units access the shared backyard from wooden stairs descending onto the entertaining patio. String up cafe lights to enjoy the private space, punctuated by a large palm tree. Plenty of storage can be found in the adjoining garage.

Location makes this Bernal home a knock-out. Not only does Cortland Avenue offer dining and shopping aplenty, the dynamic Mission District and Noe Valley are both nearby. Getting around the Bay becomes painless with close proximity to Highway 101 and I-280 as well as the Glen Park and 24th Street BART stations. And with multiple Muni options, the city is at your convenience too.
