Outer Sunset Charmer!
Located on a tree-lined block where the homes have varied architectural styles, this two bedroom center patio home is in an ideal location: just a short distance to restaurants, great coffee, Ocean Beach, Golden Gate Park and the N-Judah. Once known as the Outerlands, this part of the Outer Sunset has had a recent renaissance and has put the cool back in the neighborhood.
The living room has vaulted ceilings, parquet floors, a bay window and a wood-burning corner fireplace. The dining room is spacious and has art-deco styled lighting. The layout of the large kitchen is a cook’s delight. It has ample storage and counter space, a double oven and a 5-burner gas cook-top stove. Both generously sized bedrooms have partial ocean views. One bedroom has a large, deep closet. The bathroom with a separate stall shower and a deep soaking tub are separate from the private WC. The home has good storage and closets where you need them.
Downstairs is a studio apartment, with legal ADU status from the city of San Francisco. It was recently constructed and has contemporary finishes, and opens to the shared rear yard. In addition to the main studio room, there is an entry hallway that is large enough to accommodate an over-sized dresser and a large closet. It is currently rented month-to-month for $2,200/month.
In the garage, there is room for one car plus shared laundry and storage for the house and the ADU.
What makes this location so amazing? The house is on a quiet tree lined street. And, it's a quick walk to fantastic restaurants, coffee shops and so much more, including: Outerlands, Hook Fish Co., Tranh Long, Devil's Teeth Baking Company, Andytown Coffee Roasters, Trouble Coffee. Need groceries? Walk to Other Avenues or Noriega Produce. Safeway and other markets also not too far away. Love nature? Head to the ocean or head to Golden Gate Park, both walking distance from this great home.

Like most of its neighbors in the central western section of San Francisco, the Outer Sunset was once a land of sand dunes, and therefore one of the last neighborhoods in the city to be developed.
Most of the homes here were built in a neat grid of two-story tract homes during the 1930s and 1940s. The famous San Francisco developer of this area, Henry Doelger, was known for the simplistic and practical design of his homes.
One of the biggest perks of living in the Outer Sunset is its beachside locale. Even homes further from the sand can have great views of the Pacific Ocean. But this perk goes hand-in-hand with the neighborhood’s only drawback: the fog that often obstructs said views. The fact is, residents who live here love the ocean and the fog doesn’t take away from its prime beachfront location.
Public transportation runs all the way out to this relatively distant neighborhood with Lincoln Way running along its northern border and providing direct access to the freeway. Golden Gate Park is also just to the north of the Outer Sunset.
Irving Street serves as the main commercial drag for the Outer Sunset, lined with cafes, restaurants, storefronts, and bars. Part of the charm of this neighborhood is the treasured mom-and-pop businesses sprinkled around the neighborhood, aging it some, but with distinction.
At the outer edge of San Francisco, the Outer Sunset’s location dazzles with superior direct access to the beach, Golden Gate Park, and public transportation — a real residential sanctuary within the hum of big city San Francisco.
