A lovely 2 bedroom 1 bath nestled into the middle of Germania Street: a beloved, quiet street with lovely details and a feeling reminiscent of many quaint European lanes. This upper unit condo, in a beautiful two unit Vicorian, has been thoughtfully remodeled, yet retains original details such as moldings, picture rails and medallions that give it an unmistakable charm. It features a great, open, eat-in chef's kitchen with plenty of granite counter space and a perfect place to sit and enjoy your morning coffee - or entertain guests for an evening dining experience. This home gets great light from the high ceilings and the many double-paned windows that surround the living, kitchen bathroom and bedrooms. The building is also detached on three sides, which maximizes both the light and the quiet atmosphere. There is designer lighting throughout the house, as well as custom-installed Hunter Douglas shades. Both bedrooms feature custom closets that cleverly maximize space and accessibility. Just two blocks to Duboce Park, the Church/Market transit hub (lines J, N, M, L, K), Haight Street and Safeway make this an ideal location for access to every convenience - yet the location is quaint and quiet enough to be considered a hidden gem.

Hayes Valley/Duboce Triangle
Sheltered from the fog by Buena Vista and Twin Peaks to the west, Duboce Triangle is one of the sunnier districts in San Francisco. Just blocks from trendy restaurants and shopping on Castro, Mission and Haight Streets and served by the Church Street Muni-Station, the area is a big draw for car-free urbanites.
Duboce Triangle is true to its roots as a district built in the early 1900s, the heyday of Edwardian architecture. Its Victorian flats and condos reflect the best of that era, showing off exterior moldings, bay windows, hardwood floors, coved ceilings and wainscoting. Many homes in Duboce Triangle offer views of Twin Peaks, Buena Vista and Corona Heights from their sunny, walk-out decks.
In the 1960s, the city of San Francisco renovated the entire district by planting street trees, burying utility wires underground and widening the narrow sidewalks and streets. Today, with its now-mature trees and rejuvenated homes, Duboce Triangle is distinctly residential, yet has an urbane feel.
In the evening, locals head out for dinner at one of the many nearby bistros and bars. Market Street’s eateries offer burgers, sushi, Indian and everything in-between. An easy stroll away is Haight Ashbury, once the center of the hippie culture. Now it is home to hip restaurants, high-end vintage clothing stores and a number of exclusive boutiques. Castro Street, just south of Duboce, caters towards the GLBT community, with its unique eateries, bars and bookstores.
At the center of Duboce Triangle sits Duboce Park, a rectangular patch of green space loved by residents and their dogs. Nearby tree-filled Buena Vista Park, another great place to take a dog, has steep paved and dirt paths, winding wooden stairs and endless views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands.
