Open House Obsession: Revisit the '50s in St. Francis Wood

201 San Anselmo Avenue, St. Francis Wood, San Francisco, $1.995M

Just listed today, this 5-bed, 3.5-bath house is in one of San Francisco's early planned subdivisions, laid out with strict covenants (some racial, ie. "No Chinese") and early on, a design review committee. The neighborhood is full of classic Spanish and Tudor houses, mostly built in the '20s, and a few traditional Mid-Century like this one. From the listing photos, it looks like it had a really good paint job a few decades ago and not much else except impeccable maintenance since.

These were not Modernists. The big, simple house has a few Monterey Colonial details, much watered down, with the expected grand living and dining rooms, but the original baths are still immaculate:

There's a classic knotty pine den (above) on the main floor plus a library. We love the proportions, the paneled ceiling, and the vintage blue glass bar:
