1854 Great Highway
1854 Great Highway is a gorgeous, reimagined home featuring unobstructed views that extend past the Farallon Islands on a clear day. Watch the whales breach and the ships meander in and out of the bay from the comfort of your living room couch. Step outside your door and have immediate access to the freshest air and the sights, sounds and surf the Pacific Ocean bring to you when you start your morning run, walk, ride, or swim.
Enter the home: The upstairs has 3 ample bedrooms, a kitchen, and a bathroom. But the showstopper is the views enjoyed by the living room, dining room and kitchen. The lower level was recently expanded creating a contemporary foyer, additional bedroom, bathroom, and laundry area. The landscaped rear yard was done in a manner that only an artist with vision would spend the time to design it and assure each stone was set perfectly into place to complete its oasis-like vibe. Radiant heat is a wonderful feature that completes the feel of this beautiful, warm home on the beach.
Just a short walk from the many excellent cafes, restaurants and bars that line Judah, Noriega and Taraval's commercial corridors, and with many of SF's best public and private schools in the area; this home is unique and oozing style making it unlike any other home in the area.
The Outer Sunset is a quiet residential enclave with quaint stretches of shops, cafes, and restaurants along its main drags of Judah, Noriega, and Taraval Streets. So close to all things loved about San Francisco, but so very far away, is the draw that captures the hearts and minds of the residents who appreciate this unique, almost suburban, neighborhood. Proudly removed from the City's elements, with immediate access to wide-open spaces, are a couple of the greatest attributes of living in this part of the city.
Great walking, biking, and jogging routes can be found along Sunset Boulevard, as well as delightful nature trails exploring the adjacent Golden Gate Park. This is a beach community, and on sunny days residents flock to the sandy beachfront, enjoying ocean walks, family picnics, and occasional swims for the hearty few. Surfing is very popular year-round. Local destination Fort Funston is a bastion of family fun, with abundant dune exploration, and viewing of world-class hang gliding overhead. Nearby is the highest point in San Francisco, Mount Davidson, where hiking and breathtaking views are the course of the day.
And don’t miss the San Francisco Zoo! Its a fantastic chance for kids to experience wildlife first hand. There is an educational center that holds regular classes on wildlife and conservation. The recently renovated Parkside Branch of the S.F. Public Library holds educational events and exhibits. And one of the great gems of San Francisco, Stern Grove hosts a widely-anticipated free performing-arts festival each summer. Area residents prepare picnics and make a blanket their home for the day while they are entertained by a wide array of performers and musical genres, including jazz, blues, and opera.
The Sunset and Parkside is home to many of the best public and private schools in the city. And with easy access to Muni’s N-Judah L-Taraval lines that conveniently shuttle residents to and from downtown; is there any reason to believe this isn't the best neighborhood in the city?
