Gorgeous Vacant View Flats       

Born in 1914 and hand crafted with the finest available materials, 540-542 Belvedere has impressed for over a century. Sited on an oversized lot with brilliant natural light and enchanting garden, this timeless structure is perched on the upper edge of Belvedere’s most desirable block, boasting lovely views over Cole Valley, to Sutro Forest and out past The Marin Headlands. The period detail, land area, light and views are incomparable. The location offers a true San Francisco neighborhood experience, simple access to Cole Street restaurants and cafes, and easy entry to local greenbelts at Tank Hill, Buena Vista and Golden Gate Park.

With 2,600 square feet of living space (per tax records) this graceful Craftsman Style building features beautiful period detail throughout. There are wood burning fireplaces, box beam ceilings, oak wood floors with walnut inlay, period built-ins, wood wainscot, as well as oversized windows with stain glass transoms. Both floorplans include high function and robust public rooms: formal living and formal dining rooms across the front of the building with sublime western light and neighborhood vista. Each flat also includes an eat-in updated kitchen with sunny southern light well, and split bath off the hall. Overlooking the garden are two peaceful, spacious bedrooms.

Above this impressive property is a flat roof with solar panels and knock out views to the Golden Gate Bridge and beyond.  On the level with equal access from each unit is a happy, deep landscaped yard with border garden, mature plantings and a sizable palette for more. Below is significant property storage.  Ideally located on Cole Valley’s best and most celebrated street, and just steps to Cole Street amenities, Tech Shuttles and the N-Judah.
