Escape and unwind in your own quaint hideaway!
Nestled in Lower Pacific Heights, this tranquil two-level cottage is embraced by its own outdoor space on two sides and includes a private garage and storage area.
Leave the bustle of the city behind as you step through a garden gate into a charming brick patio surrounded by cascading bougainvillea, roses, and lavender. A light-filled space awaits beyond the blue Dutch door. Arrive into the cozy living room with rustic elegance straight out of a storybook. A wood-burning fireplace anchors the room, and a large window seat is a perfect nook to read a book or look out at the garden.
The home’s kitchen has been meticulously designed with space-conserving Gaggenau appliances and thoughtful custom cabinetry and shelving. Enjoy your meals in the adjacent dining area, or dine al fresco on your private patio.
The upper level is a generous open space that can be easily divided into both a home office and a comfortable bedroom. The vaulted ceiling, skylights, and the large windows overlooking the gardens send natural light throughout the space. A large walk-in closet and full bathroom with shower over bathtub, built-in shelving, and medicine cabinet complete this level.
The cottage also features a detached laundry shed, an extra storage area in the main building, and its own deeded garage.

Lower Pacific Heights offers home buyers a stylish, upscale-feeling neighborhood bolstered by an approachable, casual attitude. Within the confines of these blocks, you'll find Japantown, the oldest and largest such enclave in the United States. From the spectacle of the Peace Plaza pagoda to the grandeur of St. Dominic's Church, it really seems there's something here for everyone. This area is a shopper's delight, with bustling commercial centers along Fillmore, Steiner and Divisadero.
The Japan Center mall is a mecca for all things Japanese. When it comes time to eat, the possibilities are endless. Evenings see the streets fill with patrons looking to dine at one of many gastronomic destinations, or music fans lining up at the Boom Boom Room and the adjacent historic Fillmore Theater. Sundance Kabuki Cinema is a welcome addition to the neighborhood; as the largest independent theater in the city, the Kabuki screens first run features and plays host to a number of film festivals, attracting cinephiles from all over the Bay Area.
The neighborhood is home to an interesting mix of classic Victorian homes and mid-rise condo developments. As throughout much of the city, you'll find wonderful diversity among your neighbors. You can get a picture of the sense of community that exists in this diverse pocket of the city each April during the Cherry Blossom Festival.
