Open House Obsession: Vintage Worker’s Cottage In The Mission Made New Again, $3MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 917 Florida Street, Mission District
When: Saturday and Sunday, February 11-12,2017 from 1:00pm-4:00, both days
What: A c. 1900 wood frame cottage, gutted and transformed into a 4-bed, 4-bath family-ready home for the 21st Century by designers/developers Amanda Van Voorhees and Yola Ozturk.
Retaining the historic facade and visually respecting the neighbors, the team reinvented the house from just inside the front door to the immaculately landscaped rear garden. Most of the main floor is a great room that opens to the garden through Fleetwood sliders. There’s also a small ensuite bedroom/study on this level.
Three bedrooms occupy the lower level and open to a patio. Two of the three baths on this level are ensuite, including an elegant master bath (below) with Ann Sacks tiles and custom cabinets.
What We Love: In the sunniest part of the Mission, the multi-level garden will get a lot of use. Plus we covet that custom steel and stucco gas grill.
