Bernal Heights

The Rush
 
Here is a picture of the crowd heading in to see the house at 285 Richland Ave in San Francisco this morning for a brief (and probably only) showing of this house.  Why?  This 1000 square foot home, which is now bank owned already has two offers (even before the first showing).  The first offer is from the tenant, who is currently paying $2,400 per month to live there.  The second, from another party, who had not seen the house when they submitted the offer.
I suspect this house...

Incredible light floods the public living spaces of this gracious home.  Period details throughout including original light fixtures, door hardware and built-ins.  The generous barrel front living room features a wood-burning fireplace.  The formal dining room has a classic chandelier and a built in cabinet.  The kitchen has been updated with a modern stove and expanded cabinet and counter space, yet its vintage charm remains intact.  The adjoining eat-in area has expansive outlooks.  Two spacious bedrooms and a full bathroom complete this floor.  Downstairs is a large bedroom, half bath and a knotted pine bonus room (future master suite?) and access to the large yard.  Come back from a busy day and relax in your gracious home.

I had the pleasure of seeing the goats on Cortland Street in Bernal Heights today.  Oreo and her son, Double Stuff, that is.  Oreo, a former neighbor of mine, is usually off at work--in the Presidion or some other city park or open space that needs grooming.  They were in the front of Good Life Grocery today, munching on romaine lettuce, cardboard and paper.
 
The Sea Lions are also back at Pier 39, just in time for summer tourist season.  Pier 39 held a celebration on Friday to welcome them...
