Through the inviting wooden gate on Mizpah, set back off the street and down a stone path that winds through the large front garden, enter this charming wood shingled home that was built in 1904 and lovingly expanded in 2000. Right away, the functional flow of the main living floor is established by the handsome front living room, with French doors that open to a large sun-kissed deck in the front garden. This area also contains a large entry closet and a convenient 1/2 bath. Continue through to the formal dining area, leading into the impressive chef’s kitchen, which is fitted out with plenty of cabinet and countertop space, a large island, and high end stainless steel appliances. The cozy eat-in den area with fireplace opens via French doors to the well sized deck in the rear garden. This delightful outdoor space feels almost magical with verdant foliage, an adorable storage shed and well established lemon and apple trees that produce some truly tasty fruit! The upper floor of the home includes three well-sized bedrooms and a full bath, and is sun-dappled by multiple skylights. All of this on a charming one-block street just a block from the entry to majestic Glen Canyon, with all the hiking, fun, and recreation you could hope for! The newly renovated rec center has many exciting community programs, as well as a world class climbing wall. A short distance away are Canyon Market, Higher Grounds, the Cheese Boutique, and many more shops and restaurants. Don’t forget the convenience of BART to downtown, easy 101 and 280 freeway access, and many public transit options just a quick jaunt down O'Shaughnessy or a stroll/ride/roll down the lovely San Francisco Chenery "Slow Street". There’s plenty of nearby parking, and a curb cut to add a parking pad if desired. A special oasis in The City!
