Inner Sunset Architectural Gem

Welcome to 1570 12th Avenue, a Tudor meets Craftsman style home in the desirable Inner Sunset built by a brick mason for his family. Combining traditional style, practical amenities, dramatic architectural features, and space to entertain indoors and out, this spacious property is a special offering. The house includes four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms plus a top level pent room with view deck.

Built in 1904, 1570 12th Avenue comes complete with Tudor-style curb appeal and a landscaped front garden. A paneled foyer sets the tone for a home that is packaged with vintage details like hardwood flooring, lead-paned windows, arched entrances, skylights, crown moulding, and intricate woodwork. Just adjacent to the foyer is a fourth bedroom with a decorative fireplace with a shield detail built into the surround, hardwood floors, and tall leaded windows overlooking the front garden that could be used as a sitting room or an office.

The living room is a soaring two-story space that includes freshly painted woodwork, an open second floor mezzanine, and is topped with a dramatic domed glass cupola and a designer chandelier. The spacious room is kept cozy with a lovely Inglenook framed by built-in banquettes, an adjacent window seat, and a built-in library nook. The living room is additionally lit with large leaded glass windows and glass globe-shaped wall sconces.

Find the dining room off of a short hallway leading to the kitchen. The formal dining room, complete with a box frame ceiling, an ornate fireplace, and two tall windows, is entered via an elegant archway or French doors through the kitchen, which adds natural light and makes the layout great for entertaining, casual or upscale.

The kitchen, with its own stained glass window, features custom cabinetry, a Viking oven, a Bosch dishwasher, and a stainless steel refrigerator, opens via French doors onto the first of two decks. Down the hall find the half bathroom, which comes with a window, a pedestal sink, and vintage wainscoting.

Heading upstairs, on the mezzanine level, discover two bedrooms, both of which have hardwood floors, coved ceilings, and closets, while the second of the two has a box bay window. On the opposite side of the freshly carpeted mezzanine, you will find a remodeled bathroom with a window, a shower over a tub, carrera marble tiles, and glass globe-shaped sconces.

The spacious master suite features a walk-in closet, a decorative fireplace, and leaded windows on two sides. The ensuite bathroom, with a separate shower, a tub with a wooden surround perfect for candles, resting a book, or propping up a glass of wine, shares views of Sutro Tower, the Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve, and the pretty back garden.

In a home full of welcome surprises, the mezzanine also houses a staircase up to the fourth level of this amazing home. The fourth level “pentroom” has hardwood floors, windows on three sides, a skylight, extra storage, and direct access to the second deck with its amazing views of Sutro Tower, the Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve, downtown, the Golden Gate Bridge, and even 1570 12th Avenue’s own back garden.

Back on the main level, head out back to the magical garden, complete with a winding path, raised beds, and mature plantings. This is the place to rest, relax, and take some time to let nature come to you. A basement level offers a laundry room with a utility sink and a washer and a dryer, wine storage, a workshop, lots of extra storage, and the opportunity to expand.

And the location is stellar. Golden Gate Park, the Japanese Tea Garden, the de Young Museum, Ocean Beach, the Golden Gate Bridge and even Marin hiking and outdoor amenities are short excursions from 1570 12th Avenue.

Beyond art, culture and nature, everything you need in terms of practical and pleasurable amenities like shops, banks, groceries, exercise, public transit, and cafes are very close by. The 9th and Irving area of the Inner Sunset offers many restaurants to choose from and if you’re willing to stand in line, go for San Tung’s dried fried chicken on 12th and Irving.

1570 12th Avenue boasts an excellent location, unique architectural details, a gorgeous yard, proximity to practical and outdoor amenities, an excellent commute, and room to grow.
