Located in the coveted Lake district, this spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom flat features elegant period details combined with a modern kitchen and bathrooms, making it a classic San Francisco residence.
Built in 1909, 4500 California Street is part of a stately six-unit TIC building located on the northeast corner of 7th Avenue and California Street. Under the current regulations and owner-occupancy guidelines, this building is eligible to convert to condominiums in April 2017 (per seller, please see Sirkin opinion of eligibility in disclosures.)
The 1,392 sq. ft. home (per tax records) has its own street entrance, making it feel more like a house than a typical flat. Do you like to entertain? There’s plenty of room to do so here.
The welcoming entry foyer is generous in size; just add a desk to use it as an office. The foyer leads to a spacious living room with hardwood floors, high ceilings, and windows that face southeast. Double French doors lead to a generous formal dining room, perfectly sized for a large dinner table, or perhaps choose to utilize all of the space by adding a second seating area.
The eat-in kitchen has been updated with stainless steel appliances including a gas Bosch range and features a built-in wet bar area with a sink and granite counters. Off the kitchen, there is a bright rear mudroom offering extra flexible space and access to the shared garage.
Both bathrooms are modern in style, with contemporary finishes and fixtures. The guest bathroom features a shower over a jetted tub, surrounded by new beveled subway tile; the vanity and sink are a wonderful elegant gray color, and the floor is new white penny tile.
The master suite features a large bedroom, closet, and spacious master bathroom with double sinks and a huge linen closet. This bathroom has a tile shower enclosure coupled with a glass door and a rain showerhead.
Additionally in the unit is a large walk-in pantry/laundry closet with a stacked washer and dryer and plenty of room for shelving or coats. A second deep and long storage space is accessed in the hallway, perfect for boxes or miscellaneous items.
One assigned parking space in the common garage is included; the access is off 7th Avenue. Monthly dues are $290.93 and include sewer, water, maintenance, and reserves. Building insurance is an additional yearly charge paid separately from the dues.
The Lake Street area of San Francisco is one of the most coveted neighborhoods in the city. It offers large and traditional San Franciscan homes including many grand Edwardians, Victorians, and Queen Annes. The Lake Street neighborhood provides ease of access to commercial strips on Geary and Clement Streets in the Richmond, points north and south via Route 1, biking and hiking trails, and downtown San Francisco.
4500 California has a Walk Score of 95, a “Walker’s/Biker’s Paradise” with plenty of nearby transportation, retail, and dining options. It is a short distance to Pine Mountain Lake Park. A few bus lines that run down California Street are the 1, 1 Express, 28R. The neighborhood is also served by the 2 and 38 Muni lines.
