Nestled away on one of Hayes Valley ‘Living Alley’ Projects – tree-lined Lily Street - away from the hustle & bustle yet just a few short blocks to Hayes Street & everything it's known for. This top floor condo in a 5-unit vintage building embraces quintessential San Francisco charm, featuring vaulted ceilings with skylights, lots of natural light, updated kitchen with pass through bar, a split bath with custom shower, and an enchanting private deck off the bedroom adorned with succulents, lemon tree and other flora – the perfect place to retreat, relax, or work from home! Other amenities include hardwood floors, custom lighting and window shades, and common laundry. Centrally located within walking distance to Hayes Valley, the Castro, Mission and Haight neighborhoods, with convenient public transit and freeway access – 360 Lily # 10 is a place to call home!
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Hayes Valley is a great location in the center of town and near the Cultural/Historic District with lots of restaurants and shopping close by. Lily Street is a narrow tree-lined one-way street with minimal traffic and is designated as one of San Francisco’s “living alleys” with sidewalk landscaping, floral murals, and planned pedestrian improvements providing a more useful and attractive neighborhood.
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE HOME
This is a unique one-bedroom condo on the top (3rd) floor of a 5-unit Victorian on Lily Street in the fun Hayes Valley neighborhood of San Francisco. I enjoy natural daylight all day with windows on 3 sides, 2 skylights and 10-foot ceilings. The kitchen is quite workable even for 2 people. The gas stove in the kitchen was replaced with a GE Hotpoint. The kitchen skylight adds natural light right where you need it.
The skylight over the shower is especially nice with the Dreamline fiberglass shower and the Grohe thermostatic shower valve. The toilet room has its own operable window, a programmable fan and light switch and a dual-flush Toto toilet (1.6 & 0.9 Gpf, Elongated).
Adding comfort is the all-electric Carrier mini-split heat pump heating and cooling. The 2 wall units (living room and bedroom) have individual remote control for heating, ventilation, dehumidification, and cooling.
The best part of this place is the private deck and garden. I have spent many enjoyable hours building, tending and enjoying this special place. The succulents and cacti are nearly self-sufficient, and those plants and trees that require it are automatically drip irrigated for a minimum of ongoing care. I have also built a small rain barrel catchment system to collect storm water during rainy weather for use during drier stretches. There is a nesting pair of mourning doves that seasonally inhabits one of the hanging plants with several generations of chicks having hatched there. The cuphea plant attracts hummingbirds nearly all year, and the young lemon tree should begin producing soon.
The building has a gated entry to a shared courtyard and garden with a gas grill. The utility room on the ground floor has 2 sets of washer/dryers, as well as individual unit storage shelves for laundry supplies. The utility room also houses the building water heater, all unit and common area electric meters and some bicycle storage.
Once a gritty urban hub, today's Hayes Valley offers an eclectic mix of architectural styles, shops and restaurants, and a wonderfully diverse group of neighbors. Where the Central Freeway once roared into San Francisco, there is now a wide, tree-lined boulevard and little park called Patricia's Green, which offers a peaceful respite in the midst of a very vibrant street scene. Neighboring Duboce Park is a magnet for dogs and people. Hayes Valley can feel like two neighborhoods in one. Davies Symphony Hall and the War Memorial Opera House sit at the eastern edge of the neighborhood and attract well-heeled visitors from all over the world. The tony shopping and dining along Hayes Street can be decidedly upscale, while a few blocks south, Haight Street's dive bars and funky shops attract hip locals and curious tourists. The neighborhood offers all the transit options one would expect for such a centrally located area, and freeway access could not be easier. Flat streets and proximity to Market Street make the area especially appealing to cyclists. Victorian, Queen Anne, and Edwardian townhouses are bountiful here, along with the occasional new development. Urban explorers delight in finding hidden treasures in the quaintly named alleys that crisscross Hayes Valley, like Lily, Ivy, and Rose Streets. Like the neighborhood itself, they offer a glimpse of old fashioned charm in the heart of our booming metropolis.
