Beautiful and elegant, this spacious condominium has a wonderful floorplan, great light and all the charming details, built-ins and character of a San Francisco Edwardian home.

The rooms in the property are ample and the space is inviting. The two units in the building share gardens, both front and back. There is incredible storage, both individual spaces and common area space, including a large workshop. Walk score of 95, and close to BART, the J-Church, busses and City Share locations. Sellers have one year of leased parking, if you need it! Must see!
