Updated High Style Ashbury Heights Condo
Built in 1900, 192 Downey Street is a two-bedroom, one and a quarter-split bathroom condo with two car tandem parking, exclusive use deck, and storage located in a two unit Edwardian style building in the heart of San Francisco’s desirable Ashbury Heights. You’ll love this home’s flood of natural light and the sheltered outdoor space off the kitchen that makes it perfect for entertaining or relaxing.
192 Downey Street, the lower of two flats, welcomes you with a charming porch and a vintage, glass-paned door that opens onto a foyer with a walk-in storage closet. Just off the foyer, through an arched entryway, you will find the spacious and sunny living room with a large bay window. Other vintage details include hardwood floors, high ceilings, wide baseboards, and ornate architectural elements.
Each of the two bedrooms has windows and closets, along with high ceilings and gracious Edwardian proportions, while the second bedroom is carpeted for comfort. Down the hall, the split bath offers a window for natural light, a shower over a tub, a pedestal sink, and a convenient corner sink in the separated toilet room.
The formal dining room has built-in cabinets, vintage details, and direct access via French doors to the back deck. Adjacent to the dining room, you will find a cook’s kitchen, flooded with light from windows on four sides, a breakfast bar, a separate laundry area, and lots of cabinet space. Fixtures and furnishings include stainless steel appliances and a new quartz countertop. This open plan kitchen is large enough to accommodate a home office, and opens directly onto the deck via a second set of French doors.
The deck, designed by Flora Grubb and exclusive to the unit, has a fire pit that makes it perfect for entertaining or getting a respite from city life. The deck is accessible to the street via a side walkway for easy maintenance. 192 Downey has its own storage room in the garage. The garage offers four car tandem parking with two spots allocated to this condo.
Downey, a one way street, is beloved for its central location and community feel, including an annual block party and all around charm and beauty, from both nature and architecture. The neighborhood is rich with Victorians and Edwardians, and you’re sure to pass by dogs, parents with babies/toddlers, or hear a conversation in French, thanks to the nearby Lycée Français de San Francisco (LFSF).
192 Downey Street also enjoys close proximity to restaurants both new and renowned (Zazie, Padrecito, La Boulange, Ice Cream Bar, Magnolia Brewing, Sparrow, and Bacon Bacon, which is right around the corner). Closeby parks include beautiful Golden Gate Park, Buena Vista Park, and a small dog friendly park near Cole Street. Shopping destinations include Amoeba Music and Booksmith.
Practical amenities include Ashbury Market for quick necessities or a snack/beer/wine run, Luke’s Local for specialty goods and premade meals, and Whole Foods for just about everything. Easy commuting options include the N MUNI line and four bus lines.
