On the cusp of the Castro, Duboce Triangle and Mission Dolores, this stunning, renowned Dolores Heights home — made famous by the beloved French song San Francisco about "la maison bleue" — is everything you want! Renovated to the studs in 2009 with John Maniscalco Architecture, the home is made for entertaining and family — three levels, with five bedrooms, three and a half baths, and just over 3000 square feet of living space. Soaring ceilings, Ipe floors, gorgeous period details, and great natural light on all levels. Light filled living room with bay windows, fireplace, and built in shelving. Spacious dining room with built-in buffet and cabinetry. Professional kitchen with built in SubZero refrigerator, stainless Viking stove, double Viking ovens, a built in microwave, stone countertops, custom cabinetry, breakfast bar, and plenty of work and storage space. The kitchen opens to a cozy, skylit, built-in banquette space for casual family meals and homework, and also to a spacious family room. A powder room completes the main level. The French doors from the family room and kitchen lead to the expansive, private, sun-drenched, multi level patio spaces on the 2850 sq ft lot. The lower patio is perfect for al fresco dining and lounging, and the upper patio, with its regulation basketball hoop, is a wonderful outdoor play area, or a second level of relaxation and repose — with amazing City outlooks. On the home's second level, the coveted family floor plan: there are three spacious, light filled bedrooms, a fainting room— perfect as a nursery or home office— and two full, tiled renovated baths. The master suite with a luxurious, en suite bath, opens to the patio space. On the third level, there is a second family room/den, flanked by two additional bedrooms, and a third, full tiled bath. This top level, replete with windows and skylights, is bathed in natural light, and offers peek-a-boo downtown views. Interior access to the two car side by side garage, and an additional guest space parallel to the garage. Newer foundation, many new windows and doors, updated electrical and plumbing. New washer and dryer. Refinished floors, and freshly painted inside and out. Incredible 98 WalkScore and 97 TransitScore — easily get to anywhere you want to go in the city. Walk to world class restaurants, shops, and cafes. Steps to Le Marais Bakery, Frances, Tartine, Delfina, Dear Inga, BiRite, Dolores Park, the J-Church, F, E and L lines, and tech shuttles. A stunning retreat in the heart of the city.


The vibrant neighborhood of Dolores Heights is located just west of the Mission District and is sandwiched between The Castro and Noe Valley and is considered one of the Bay Area’s most affluent neighborhoods. Victorian and Edwardian-style homes – many of which were built in the early 20th-Century – make up a majority of the real estate in Dolores Heights, with condos and townhomes sprinkled throughout. Since the Twin Peaks block the strong winds from the west, Dolores Heights residents enjoy a warm, sunny climate compared to other San Francisco neighborhoods.

Mission Dolores Park hugs the eastern border of Dolores Heights, and is a popular gathering place for outdoor activities and festivals. The grassy lawns are ideal for afternoon picnics or kicking around a soccer ball. Amenities provided at Mission Dolores Park include tennis courts, basketball courts, a playground, and two off-leash dog areas. The park also hosts a variety of events including Film Nights and live performances.

When residents of Dolores Heights want to enjoy a fun night out with friends, or a delicious meal without venturing too far from home, they have any of the world class restaurants on the 18th Street corrider to choose from. From Delfina, to Dear Inge, to Frances -- the sky is the limit. 

The 16th Street and Mission BART Station is blocks from Dolores Heights, and provides easy access to the financial district and East Bay. Additionally, the Muni “J” route, which runs down Church St, is another viable option for commuting to and from Union Square and the Theater District.

Eureka Valley and Dolores Heights, which includes the world-renowned Castro district, have a wonderfully rich history as the epicenter of the gay rights movement. Today, the neighborhood is undergoing another transition as the long-standing gay community welcomes young families to the increasingly diverse neighborhood. On the eastern end, coveted Liberty Hill offers tremendous views and one-of-a-kind residences.
