Splendid 2-unit building on a friendly Marina block – loved by one happy family since 1962 and delivered vacant for new owners!
Where the city meets the bay!
The sunny, sparkling Marina is a favorite destination in San Francisco. What's not to like about views of the bay, the Marin headlands and the Golden Gate Bridge? Glorious sunsets? Running at dawn? Playing on the Marina Green? Shopping and dining on Chestnut Street?
At its western end is the Presidio and the Palace of Fine Arts. The latter is a classic structure reminiscent of Roman Temples, designed by Bernard Maybeck in 1915 and a favorite tourist destination for photos. To the east is Fort Mason, a former Army post which is now an extraordinary cultural arts center.
In between are clean, charming residential blocks lined with beautifully maintained homes and multi-unit buildings, many of them in the Spanish-Mediterranean style popular in the 1920s and 1930s and all of them lit up by the sun that so often shines on this desirable district of the city.
The blue-ribbon neighborhood gets high marks from Walkscore.com as one of the most pedestrian-friendly places in town. If you can't find it on Chestnut Street, there's always Union Street or the historic Presidio. Or forget about your troubles and just stroll down to the waterfront and sit on the dock of the bay!
