SUN-SPLASHED 3BR/2.5BA BERNAL HOME
HALF-BLOCK TO CORTLAND
Welcome to 242 Anderson Street!
This gorgeous contemporary Bernal heights home, custom-built in 1987, soaks up the sun from east and west exposures and is filled with light throughout the day.
Sleek and comfortably-proportioned, this wonderful home has a floor plan that’s as flexible as it is functional.
One enters into a spacious open living room-dining room with a handsome corner fireplace and ample space for dining and entertaining. Down the hall, the chef’s kitchen features a 60” Wolf 6-burner range, two convection ovens, a space for informal dining and a walk-out deck with views and stairs down to a mature landscaped garden.
Two bedrooms – one with its own powder room -- and a full tiled spa-like bathroom complete the main level.
Downstairs, a large media/family room and a spacious suite – it can function as the primary, if desired – includes a comfortable work area with sliding doors that provide access to a glorious patio and garden.
Best of all … sturdy modern construction with many recent upgrades, half a block to Cortland Avenue, shops, restaurants and caffeine emporiums.
Welcome home to a new day at 242 Anderson Street.
The area we call Bernal Heights was once the site of cow dairies and grazing pastures. One of the last great neighborhoods to be "discovered" in San Francisco Bernal is making the transition from a traditional blue-collar settlement to a hospitable enclave of artists, young families, and left-leaning political life. It owes its growing desirability to its exceptionally homey setting and inspiring city views.
Home to two great parks, this community is beloved by dog owners and hikers alike. The largest park, called Bernal Heights, occupies the crest of the hill and is a breezy respite for area residents who enjoy the fresh air and pristine views of downtown San Francisco and the bay. The second, Precita Park resides at the bottom of Bernal and is a favorite for young children and families, who find the playground and expansive lawns to be a perfect afternoon setting.
Any visitor must make their way along Bernal's cozy retail main street, Cortland Avenue. There you'll find a splendid blend of local bookshops, one-of-a-kind boutiques, and delicious coffee shops. Some exceptional ethnic food, from French to Nepalese, can be found along this notable stretch, representing an array of eateries to delight the lucky food lovers who sauntering by.
Some favorite drinking establishments are also at your disposal. El Rio, with its steady lineup of extraordinary musical acts, Wild Side West with its fantastic fireplace, plus the country and blues music venue Skip's Tavern, are all sure to invigorate. MUNI bus service out of Bernal toward downtown is easy to find on Mission street, which delineates the western edge of Bernal. You are also walking distance from the BART at 24th and Mission.
