261 Ripley Street is a three-bedroom, one-bath fully detached single family home atop Fabulous Bernal Heights. Panoramic views stretch from Twin Peaks to San Francisco’s downtown skyline. Built in 1910 and updated in 2015 and 2016, this home combines vintage Edwardian charm with contemporary upgrades. It offers ample outdoor space for entertaining and weekend relaxation.
After passing through a front garden with a brick walkway and a fruiting lemon tree, 261 Ripley Street welcomes you into the ground floor living spaces via a spacious living room with walnut-stained hardwood floors, a distinctive corner fireplace, and ample light from multiple windows, including a classic bay. The bright living space reflects views of Bernal Heights Park and light from the kitchen and dining room.
The designer cook’s kitchen, remodeled in 2015, offers quartz countertops, custom cabinets, an extra large central island wired, a contemporary farm-style sink with a Grohe faucet, stainless steel Thermador and GE Monogram appliances, plentiful cabinets, and a stunning marble tile backsplash. Adjacent, you will find the dining room with a greenhouse window that brings the outdoors in. A stylish light fixture completes the space.
The master bedroom is elegant with walnut-stained hardwood floors, a wall sconce, and ceiling height French doors that give direct access to a deck and striking views of the city.
Also located on the ground floor is the spa-style bathroom. Updated in 2016, the bathroom has a separate WC with a sink, two closets, an extra deep spa tub with a separate open shower, and a brand new sink and vanity.
Head downstairs and you’ll find the second bedroom with a closet, additional storage, greenhouse windows and access to the back yard and decks. A large bonus bedroom, along with access to basement storage, a laundry room, and direct street and garden access can also be found on the lower level.
