We are super excited about our new listing for sale – 225 Bosworth Street San Francisco 94112, listed at $699,559 – Bernal Heights Home with Deck & Yard for Sale!


Built in 1917, 225 Bosworth St is a large, detailed Bernal Heights home on the border of Glen Park. Walk up the front stairs to a lovely covered porch. The formal entry way leads to a large formal living room with a fireplace, coved ceilings and attractive stained glass window detailing. Continue on to a grand formal dining room with built-in cabinets & detailed wainscoting. Off of the dining room is a spacious kitchen with a built in office area that opens directly onto the sunny, south-facing deck and backyard. A half-bath completes this level.

…All of this and we haven’t yet gone upstairs (or down!)

Upstairs, you’ll find two good-sized bedrooms, one with a sun room, and one bathroom with shower over bathtub. Both bedrooms enjoy two big closets and lots of light. Walk downstairs to find a clean, open area- great for storage, an art room, a second office, etc. The third bedroom and second full bath is perfect for a teenager, guest, in-law or roommate. Completing this fabulous home is a huge, flat yard with a patio, a washer & dryer and a one car garage with plenty of storage space!

The location is super convenient for walking, biking, public transit, and driving with access to Bernal Heights, Glen Park Village (BART, freeways, cute shops & restaurants), Southern Noe Valley & the Mission.


Dear Prospective Buyer,

This has been a great home for 34 ½ years. There have been many holiday and birthday celebrations, baptismal parties, book signings, bridal showers, etc. The special events are in addition to joyful everyday living. This has also been a wonderful place for children: the big yard, fireworks viewed from the back windows, an exciting street scene viewed from the living room windows, the carpeted stairs to learn stair climbing, etc. For a gardener, the backyard has an ideal amount of sun and shade.

Glen Park is a welcoming neighborhood. BART is just 4 blocks away. There are at least 5 MUNI lines within walking distance and one line’s bus stop is at Bosworth and Milton. Canyon Market, Le Petit Laurent, La Corneta and several other restaurants are within a short walk in “Downtown” Glen Park. The Sunday Farmers’ Market in the BART parking lot has been a huge success.

An unusual benefit of this location is the proximity of the airport; BART is an easy commute and the airport shuttles pick you up last and drop you off first. Amazingly, plane noise is not a problem.

As a structure, this house is very strong and dependable. I have maintained the house with repairs before they were necessary. I have remodeled the kitchen (most recently in 2001), powder room and upstairs bathroom. I have replaced plaster and lath with sheetrock when possible. There is insulation in the attic and in every wall that has been opened for remodeling. In 2003, the back of the house was rebuilt with a new foundation, the firewall was added and the downstairs room and bath were added (all with
permits.) The deck was completed in 2009 (with permits.) Because this has been my home, I used higher quality materials: imported ceramic tiles, Carrera
marble tiles in the shower, top grade paints, custom built cabinets, Anderson double-paned windows with the flip cleaning feature, Trex and top grade redwood
for the deck, etc.

One of the features I enjoy most is the tremendous water pressure. The washer, the dishwasher and a shower can run at the same time without temperature or pressure variations.

Storage is another feature of this house. The attic, the garage, the built-in breakfront, the hidden closet, the shelving, the kitchen cabinets, the giant bedroom closets and even the phone cabinet in the front hall provide endless opportunities for organizing your belongings.

I do love this house, but it is time for new adventures in my life. I am looking forward to life in San Luis Obispo. There will still be holiday celebrations and lots of visitors; just in a different place.
