Bernal Garden Oasis
Built in 1907, 154 Newman Street is a three-bedroom, one-bathroom, fully detached single family home with a beautiful backyard and a stellar location just minutes from Bernal Heights’ Cortland corridor.
154 Newman welcomes you with a quaint porch that ushers you into an open plan dining room and kitchen. With windows on two sides, including a light and space maximizing bay window, and hardwood floors with walnut inlays, the dining room opens to a flexible bedroom via double doors. This space includes newly updated, energy efficient windows and can be used as a bedroom, office space, or common living space. The dining room also offers a convenient pass-through to the kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances, a double sink, and granite countertops. Just adjacent to the dining room, double doors lead you to a bedroom that could alternatively be used as common living space or a home office.
The living room, brightened by hardwood floors and windows on two sides, has direct access to the sunny backyard. The calming oasis features a wrap-around deck with a built-in banquette and views of the East Bay, a flagstone patio, raised beds, a verdant lawn, and mature plantings including fruiting lemon and plum trees.
Another one of this residence’s most desirable features is the updated bathroom. The bathroom, which has a shower over a tub, is generously proportioned and updated with two large windows, including glass brick to preserve privacy, stylish hexagonal tiles, and an elegant vanity topped with carrara marble and lit by wall sconces.
Another fabulous feature of this home is the spacious and inviting master bedroom with a dramatic vaulted ceiling, open beams, skylights, two closets, and direct access to the landscaped back garden. This large and airy space is an urban retreat. A second separated bedroom has a closet, hardwood floors, and a sunny window.
Practical amenities in this charming and well-kept home include a large basement area with laundry and lots of extra storage along with expansion potential. There is also direct access to the back garden from the street.
Ideally situated one block from Cortland Avenue, you’ll find out of the ordinary shops such as Succulence and Heartfelt. You’ll also enjoy destination restaurants such as Red Hill Station and Third Cousin for their ambiance and thoughtfully selected and often locally sourced ingredients. For drinks out, try craft cocktails spots such as Holy Water.
Outdoor spaces nearby include Bernal Hill with its 360-degree views of the city, Holly Park, and the Bernal Heights Recreation Center. Practical amenities include the Bernal Heights Public Library, local grocery stores, three local playgrounds, and a yoga studio. Bernal Heights also offers easy access to downtown, the Mission, and Silicon Valley. Residents love Bernal Heights for its great community feel, excellent microclimate and easy living.
