Regal three-bedroom, two-bathroom Castro flat combines modern amenities, stately elegance, and ideal location.
Conveniently situated in a central, highly sought-after Castro neighborhood, this full-floor flat is the first level of a newly renovated two-unit Victorian building — originally built in 1889. Impressive high ceilings, grand picture windows, softwood floors, pocket doors, flexible floor plan, crown molding, and picture rails are some of the elegant finishes of this home. The “first parlor” is a bright living room with Bay window, decorative fireplace, and pocket doors. The second parlor can be set up as a bedroom, or function as a media room, or home office. The parlors and bedrooms have gorgeous restoration Victorian pendant lights and ornate ceiling medallions. The third bedroom located in the rear has a built-in Murphy bed, extensive built-in storage cabinets, a soaking tub (which can be removed or hooked up), and direct access to an outdoor porch. This rear bedroom was originally conceived as a guest room/spa room as a full massage table fits well here. The renovated kitchen is a chef’s dream with ample counter, storage space, Ceasarstone counters, stainless appliances including a dishwasher, microwave, large double-door refrigerator, and a gas range with a hood that vents out. A robust breakfast bar in the open-concept kitchen enables contemporary flexibility to an adjacent room which can be used as a second living area, home office, etc... The bathrooms are detailed with high-end fixtures and both have spa-like walk-in showers. Exclusive-use laundry inside the flat features a full-size washer and dryer.
Additionally, the owners can offer a finished ground-floor 580 square foot space that can be used as a studio, office, classroom, or storage for an additional fee. There are four windows in this space (three of them are operable), and has its own private entrance. Imagine the possibilities!
3882 17th Street can be rented furnished or unfurnished. Some of the furnishings can be traded-out to customize the space to the renter’s needs. The lease term is flexible. Parking in the newly renovated garage is available for an additional fee. Considerate owners live upstairs.
Fun Fact: The author Anne Rice of the Vampire Chronicles fame lived across the street when she wrote “Interview with a Vampire.” It is said that she drew inspiration from her view to this flat.
