Description: This Craftsman-inspired Edwardian home, which sits on a two-parcel lot in Cole Valley, retains original architectural details like box-beam ceilings, stained glass windows and refurbished wooden floors along with modern touches. Through the home's original glass-bevelled door is an entryway of slate floors and wood-paneled walls. This leads either to the home's two-car garage or up a set of stairs to the main living area. The living room features a wood-burning fireplace with a custom, hand-pounded copper mantel and a wall of windows. The living room flows into a dining room featuring a box-beam ceiling, built-in hutch and window seat overlooking the garden. The kitchen contains an eat-in area, Turkish limestone counters and access to the garden. This level also includes a powder room. The home's three bedrooms are on the third floor. The largest has several windows with views of the Mount Sutro Forest and connects to another bedroom. These bedrooms share a hallway bathroom custom-designed with Waterworks fixtures, a Toto toilet, hand-made Italian tiles and a Jensen tub. The third bedroom features an en-suite, updated bathroom. A renovated attic includes a home theater system, a storage and office space area plus two mini-clubhouses with speakeasy peepholes for children. This floor offers views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin Headlands.
