Cherished Castro Victorian
Sold | Castro District
32 Hartford Street, San Francisco
With the city at your feet from the coveted first block of Hartford Street, 32 Hartford exemplifies a moment in San Francisco history with its beautifully preserved detail and quintessential charm.
Centered on a picture-perfect San Francisco block, 32 Hartford is an example of untouched Victorian architectural detail. Owned by the same family for over 100 years, this is a rare opportunity to customize a special property preserved through time and anchor yourself in the equally historic Castro district.
Upon entering, you are greeted by a quaint original light on the stylized main stairway banister. Expansive ceilings provide the space for crisp ceiling mandolins to anchor every room, and for pristine molding to reveal character high and low. The original wood floors shine throughout, having recently been refinished for the first time. You will cherish the Victorian details that have been preserved and bring a subtle spirit to the home.
The main level boasts gracious social rooms with a double parlor. A bright front living room is paired with a great room for a den or office. Continue into the formal dining room, overlooking the rear garden retreat and conveniently adjacent to the kitchen and pantry. The kitchen is at the heart of the home, a blank canvas ready for your vision to reach its full potential. A rustically wooded sunroom is prepared to meet all your laundry needs and is a great place to bask in the light from the garden. Journey upstairs to two large bedrooms and a full bathroom. The bedrooms are bright and spacious, with large closets and skylights.
The backyard is a wonderful private retreat, the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city living. Imagine intimate outdoor gatherings complete with your own movie night on the back wall of the historic Castro Theater or entertaining guests over a meal in the outdoor dining area.
