This stunning Victorian beauty is awe-inspiring.  The 2-unit building has been lovingly maintained and curated by the same owner for over forty years. What results is one of the most unique homes in San Francisco.

Both units have beautiful period details - soaring ceilings, wood floors, gorgeous decorative plaster, 3 wood-burning fireplaces (and one decorative), and more. Both units will be delivered vacant, and there is no history of evictions, providing the perfect opportunity for 2 owner occupiers to condo convert. Alternatively, the property offers a terrific opportunity for an owner-occupier or investor to live comfortably with the benefit of rental income to help offset the mortgage. 

The upper unit is a bright 3 bedroom/1 bath home with a large open kitchen and dining area. There is a massive skylight in the kitchen/dining area, making it a bright and beautiful focal point in the home.  There is a large bedroom in the center of the flat, a smaller bedroom at the front, and there’s also a very bright 3rd bedroom or sunroom at the back of the property. 

A large living room with a wood-burning fireplace sits at the front of the home, and the kitchen/dining area has a 2nd wood-burning fireplace and is large enough for a sizable seating area as well.

The seller is a bit of a renaissance man who is, among other things, a very talented decorative painter.  He has restored many historical features of the property and has created a masterpiece of the upper unit. The home has exquisitely detailed murals, stencils, and other decorative finishes.  It is simply breathtaking to behold and was featured in two editions of Painted Ladies. You really have to see it to believe it!

The lower unit is a 2 bedroom/1 bath home with a formal dining room that has the building’s third wood-burning fireplace.  The large living room at the front of the home has a beautiful decorative fireplace and several large windows.  The building is partially detached, so both units get phenomenal natural light. At the back of the property is an eat-in kitchen which overlooks the lush garden that has been planted and cared for over the last 40 years by the home’s botanist owner.

Both units can be occupied in their current condition, but the property has plenty of opportunity for a new owner to make his/her mark by further modernizing and improving what is already a spectacular property. 

Finally, 3751-3 17th Street has a 2-car garage with a washer/dryer and plenty of storage. The property is an oasis in the middle of our bustling city.  When you walk out the door, you’re just footsteps to Dolores Park, the Castro, the Mission, Duboce Triangle, and the Lower Haight. The location is also perfect for commuters - the new owner can walk to BART, Muni, and to various corporate shuttle stops, and there is very easy highway access as well.
