Painted Lady of Precita in Bernal Heights is SOLD!


Bernal Heights Real Estate Market is hotter than ever and we knocked this one out of the park. When you can sell a house on Ceasar Chavez across the street from a gas station for $1,250,000 you know the nieghborhood is hot.

Precita Painted Lady


Known as the Painted Lady of Precita in Bernal Heights, this magnificent Victorian blends wonderful period detail with modern conveniences. A very functional and graceful 3BR, 2BA home with hardwood floors, high ceilings, fireplace, updated kitchen and baths, and direct access to tranquil zen like garden from the main floor.  Downstairs you'll find the large garage and tons of storage space.  Conveniently located near Precita Park and it's children's playground, dog parks, cafes and shops, the vibrant Mission district, public transportation and highway access.


The area we call Bernal Heights was once the site of cow dairies and grazing pastures.  One of the last great neighborhoods to be "discovered" in San Francisco Bernal is making the transition from a traditional blue-collar settlement to a hospitable enclave of artists, young families, and left-leaning political life.  It owes its growing desirability to its exceptionally homey setting and inspiring city views.

Home to two great parks, this community is beloved by dog owners and hikers alike.  The largest park, called Bernal Heights, occupies the crest of the hill and is a breezy respite for area residents who enjoy fresh air and pristine views of downtown San Francisco and the bay. The second, Precita Park resides at the bottom of Bernal and is a favorite for young children and families, who find the playground and expansive lawns to be a perfect afternoon setting.

Any visitor must make their way along Bernal's cozy retail main street, Cortland Avenue.  There you'll find a splendid blend of local bookshops, one-of-a-kind boutiques, and delicious coffee shops.  Some exceptional ethnic food, from French to Nepalese, can be found along this notable stretch, representing an array of eateries to delight the lucky food lovers who sauntering by.

Some favorite drinking establishments are also at your disposal.  El Rio, with its steady lineup of extraordinary musical acts, Wild Side West with its fantastic fireplace, plus the country and blues music venue Skip's Tavern, are all sure to envigorate.

That is a home with a lot of character.  You won't see one just like it down the street.
