A flexible 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom or 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home, “Bonnethouse” has not been available for sale since 1950. So named for the wrap-around balcony off the living area, the property was built by the previous owner’s hands in 1947/1948. The Sunnyside district is home to this character residence, which is surrounded by Glen Park, Mission Terrace, and Ingleside.
216 Monterey Boulevard features a floor plan with 1,183 sq. ft. of living space (per appraiser) and offers 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Natural light from double-paned windows reflects the luster in the wood flooring. Have your morning coffee or dinner while enjoying the great room. The original kitchen offers a wrap-around tile counter and a garden view over the sink as well as a gas stove and refrigerator and original handmade cabinetry reminiscent of cottage doors. One bedroom and bathroom are on the main level and the second bedroom is on the top floor; there is ample closet space in each room. The bathroom has period contrasting tiles and a laundry area with a washer and dryer is down the hallway with access to the garden yard. The attached 1-car garage (we recommend double-checking the fit of your car) offers much more storage.
Bonnethouse has a secret. This home has a permitted studio, 1 bathroom apartment on the ground level at 214 Monterey Boulevard; Bonnethouse is actually a true 2-unit building, although she dresses as a single-family home (a lady’s prerogative). The studio is sectioned off but is accessible by an interior staircase and can become the third bedroom making Bonnethouse a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with a second kitchen for guests. Or keep the studio as 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 if you wish to expand.
214-216 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.
