I loved so many things about my home. The natural light pours through the skylights and windows. On the couch with friends as the sunset fills the living room. As it grows dark, getting mesmerized by the backlit skylights. The luxurious treehouse feels, surrounded by magnificent redwood and avocado trees. The quiet on a Sunday morning.
Beautiful Douglas fir floors, coved ceilings, and wainscotting giving a sense of the bygone Edwardian era. The breezy, open floor plan. Hosting friends over for dinner parties and drinks. Climbing the ship's ladder and watching the city skyline sunset from the roof deck (my realtor would want me to warn you that this is unsafe!!). Watching Netflix on the massive pull-down screen.
Doing computer work in the finished storage area with the french door windows open to the flagstone patio and the garden. Having BBQs in the backyard on a warm October afternoon. Living on a quiet, dead-end street with little traffic. Rolling out of bed and going for a morning swim in the pool across the street.
Meeting friends for tennis in the park. The Food: A warm loaf of bread from Tartine. Souvla. Pakwan. Udupi Palace. Boogaloo. Esperanto. Lolo. Bi-Rite Creamery. Dolores Park Cafe.
Events, live music, and people-watching in Dolores Park. Having a Bi-Rite Market picnic in Dolores Park on a sunny afternoon. Cafes, food, shopping, and bars/clubs/entertainment on Valencia. Hopping on BART to beat the traffic to meet a friend in the East Bay. Feeling like I’m living in the center of the best neighborhood on the planet but within the quiet oasis of a top-floor condo on a dead-end street.
Sunny, flat, and centrally located, the Mission represents the heart and especially the soul of San Francisco. Equally attractive to immigrants and a burgeoning herd of hipsters in ironic t-shirts, the Mission is still the melting pot of San Francisco. Here you'll find traditional Mexican taquerias and panaderias, pop up galleries, freshly minted block-long live/work lofts in former canneries, and a new generation of chefs determined to make their mark and earn a Michelin star. The neighborhood is highly walkable: a major urban shopping center at 16th and Potrero offers groceries, a gym, post office, office supplies, and a Peets Coffee. The museum district at 3rd and Howard is nearby, and the ball park is not far. Public Transportation is great. MUNI bus lines crisscross the neighborhoods and there are two BART stations at 16th and Mission and 24th and Mission which serve the neighborhood.
With the rise of the dot-coms in the mid-90s, the old industrial warehouses of the Mission district were converted into open air, open concept workspaces. These attracted a new kind of population: educated, highly-skilled, and eagerly looking for the next big thing: be it entertainment, dining, culture, or dance club. And they wanted to be able to walk to work, or at least ride their bike.
Housing was developed to match the taste and needs of this generation of newcomers. Many of the old warehouses preserved their old brick facades. Inside luxury interiors feature exposed brick walls, huge timbered beams, two-story high living rooms with airy ceilings, industrial kitchens, and of course, high speed Internet connections. Stately turn-of-the-century homes line the sunny blocks of this uniquely San Franciscan district. In between its main thoroughfares of Dolores, Guerrero, and Valencia, you can find many smaller hidden architectural treasures dotting the intimate cross-street alleyways.
San Francisco's oldest building stands at the corner of 16th and Dolores. Constructed in 1776, Mission Dolores draws the gaze of passersby with its clean, early-colonial Mexican style. It remains an active Roman Catholic church, and is open daily for services and to visitors alike. Just around the corner is Dolores Park, one of the city's great neighborhood hangouts, where you might be lucky enough to catch an outdoor performance by the San Francisco Mime Troupe. Time seems of no consequence on sunny afternoons while families recline along the comfortably sloping landscape. Daytime is for the sun-worshipping crowds, while warm nights are all about people watching.
Valencia Street is among the hippest nighttime destination on the planet. Throngs of young folks dropping into the trendy new eateries, filling the local watering holes for their fix of poetry and music, hitting the local performance spaces for inspired avant-garde happenings. You will find a cultural mecca, as well as a food experience beyond compare along these lively streets.
Public transportation is as good as it gets in the Mission. Two BART stations, at 16th and Mission and 24th and Mission, complement a complete bus schedule to downtown and beyond.
