If good things come in small packages, then “CobblestoneCottage” is one of them.
This 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom single-family home has not been available for sale since 1950. The family nickname for this little-miss is CobblestoneCottage for its terraced cobblestone paths and planters built by the previous owner around 1940. The Sunnyside district, home to 210 Monterey, is surrounded by Glen Park, Mission Terrace, and Ingleside.
This single-family home was beautifully redone in 2012 and features a spacious floor plan with 737 sq. ft. of living space (per appraiser) and offers 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and a detached 1-car garage. Natural light fills your cottage through double-paned windows and reflects off the wood flooring. Have your morning coffee or dinner while enjoying the garden view. The great-room area has abundant light. The kitchen offers a wrap-around granite counter and a garden view over the sink as well as stainless steel appliances including a gas stove. The bedrooms and bathroom are on the split upper level above and behind the living area to the rear. Built-in closets encompass the beds for more storage. The tiled bathroom has a pedestal corner sink and a shower. A hidden laundry area with a washer and dryer is behind a louver door in the great room, and a detached 1-car garage sits in the front of this property (we recommend double-checking the fit of your car).
Don’t let the size fool you; this cottage has expansion potential, but why? You can keep CobblestoneCottage as is. Or imagine a new home in the front, a courtyard in the middle, and the cottage in the rear as an income property, because this lot is zoned for 2 dwellings (R2). We do recommend interested parties do their diligence and research with the appropriate city departments before making an offer.
210 Monterey Boulevard is ideally situated close to Glen Park Village, the Glen Park BART station, eateries, a library, a grocery store, and more. You are just a few doors down from the Sunnyside Conservatory, built as part of an estate in 1898, and within easy reach of the Sunnyside Playground. Ocean Avenue too offers shopping a short distance south with Ingleside Library; City College and Wellness Center; Whole Foods; and multiple gyms and merchants. Bike downtown to work or choose public transportation or Google-like corporate buses. Mount Davidson hiking trails await your trek up to the famed 100-foot-tall cross. Barbecue on your front patio or visit restaurants from West Portal to Noe Valley. Easy freeway access to 280/101 is down the street.
