Well-appointed Inner Richmond district condominium with that right mix of handsome historic detail with modern, high-quality updates with a location that celebrates the best of San Francisco
No. 5 at 595 12th Avenue is a 1-bed, 1-bath, spacious corner condominium with 1-car garage parking. The sellers truly embraced a comfortable work-from-home ideal as they updated the space so that it could serve both as a WFH space and one you’d want to also live in at the same time. Traditional elements include rich crown moulding overhead, vintage wood floors below and doors with the crystal knobs seen all across vintage era flats across the city.
The large bedroom has a walk-in closet and a surprising Mt. Tam view that is framed by one of the recently installed custom, true-divided dual-pane windows throughout the flat. These windows transformed No. 5’s atmosphere significantly by keeping the space bright, warm and quiet on most days while its cleverly integrated roll-up screens also allow you to have your windows wide open on warm days without having to worry about bugs flying in.
For the bibliophile, there is a bank of floor to ceiling bookcases that are now lit with brand-new dimmable LED lighting from New York-based WAC Lighting allowing you to showcase your prized collection of books, art or whatever you want.
For those who like to entertain or relax, the living room has two banks of the upgraded windows that capture morning and afternoon light. There’s also fresh overhead lighting from acclaimed San Francisco-based designer Pablo Lighting in the living room and in the “zoom room.”
For the chef, the kitchen updates include newly installed floating solid walnut shelves with embedded LED lighting, quartz counters and sparkling tile backsplash along with a brand new slide-in gas range, hood and perfectly sized Bertazzoni refrigerator. There’s also a dishwasher and amble cabinet storage. And what’s a kitchen without a perch to show off your culinary skills? A newly installed bar-top counter offers this up or serves as the staging area for dinner with friends as No. 5 also has a discrete dining area with a new iconic Herman Miller pendant overhead.
The entry closet has automatic lighting and the understated bathroom has a full-height mirror, hex floor tile, and a porcelain-clad cast iron tub perfect for a long bath or quick shower.
No. 5 is located in a well-run,12-unit, friendly, seismically updated building with a striking ornamented brick façade dating from 1926. 595 12th Avenue scores a 93 for both its Walk Score and Bike Score as you’re just a 10-minute walk away from Golden Gate Park (with proximity to the de Young), the hustle and bustle of Geary and the vitality of Clement Street’s restaurants, shops and night life. Truly exceptional.
