Open House Obsession: The Sweetest Retreat In Cole Valley, $2M


It’s not every day you find a house with public art, but on this lovely street in Cole Valley there’s a house with public art that will make you smile. That honey bear on the facade is by the San Francisco outdoor artist fnnch, whose work (both guerilla and permitted) has adroitly enlivened the streetscape all over town with images that at first look create a moment of surprise, then become a visual neighborhood touchstone. And here, there’s a lot of joy inside as well.

Open Tuesday, February 25 from 12:00pm to 1:30pm and on Wednesday, February 26 for a twilight tour from 5:30pm to 7:00pm; the weekend open house is Saturday, February 29 from 12:00pm to 2:00pm and Sunday March 1 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.

What We Love: With a chic, stylish unity throughout, the thoughtfully elegant renovations designed by the firm of LarsonShores also include comprehensive new infrastructure, electronics and security amenities. The staging and interiors are by Green Couch.

Below, the main floor master suite opens to a deck sheltered by tall bamboo, overlooking the equally secluded garden.

The same effortless sensibility continues on the more-recently renovated lower level in the office/media room and the garden-facing bedroom and bath.
