Living The Cottage Life In San Francisco, $1.8MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 541 Diamond Street, Noe Valley
What: A classic cottage compound set within lushly planted decks and gardens, this is for some (romantics) the epitome of San Francisco living. Originally built around 1906 and updated many times since, it’s now both right-sized and intimate, with multiple outdoor spaces, an in-law unit and studio, and perfect for casual living and entertaining. In one of San Francisco’s quietest neighborhoods, but with easy access to “downtown” Noe Valley, The Castro, and Dolores Park.
Setback from the street in a garden, there’s a 1-bed flat, with the main unit above.
The upper, 2-bed 2-bath unit is open and luminous, with a view towards Twin Peaks.
What We Love: The “Only in San Francisco” vibe that somehow combines a Bolinas retreat with a ski chalet and the trim urban aesthetic of a Uniqlo store.
The romantic master suite occupies the top floor, with a very private deck and soaking tub, plus a small studio/office.
