144 Laidley Street
Gorgeous house on coveted Laidley street, perched right above Noe Valley and at the intersection of Glen Park and Bernal Heights, allowing for stunning downtown eastern views.
This special home is on a wide and deep lot on a quiet, tree-lined street. Through the front gate and up the steps, one can look out directly at the downtown skyline even before entering the house! The entry opens to an inviting living room with hardwood flooring, charming moldings and woodwork details and a wood burning fireplace flanked by two built-in glass cabinets. Attached to the living room is a sunroom, perfect as an office or play area, which has windows to the east, south and north, attracting streaming sunlight and offering sweeping views of the Salesforce Tower and San Francisco skyline, as well as the East Bay and the Bay Bridge and north to Sutro Tower. At night, this view is truly spectacular as you can watch the dancing bridge lights and illuminated Salesforce Tower images!
This downtown view is visible from both the living room, sunroom, and the elegant formal dining room, which is adjacent to the living room. Since the house is detached on such a wide lot, north and south windows continue to bring in great light on both sides. Through the dining room one enters the fabulous open chef’s kitchen, equipped with top-of-the-line appliances including a Miele dishwasher, refrigerator, built-in oven, and built-in microwave, Grohe faucet, and six-burner Wolf cooktop with retractable vent. White cabinetry contrasts beautifully with black tile backsplash and the cooktop is located on a peninsula which adds additional workspace. Next to the peninsula is a wonderful breakfast area or family room area, complete with a large closet with a stacked washer dryer. The kitchen has direct access to the side walkway, which curves around to the back of the house to a decked area, perfect for a BBQ.
On this main level are two lovely and bright bedrooms, both with great closets and light. Off the hallway from the bedrooms is a linen closet and an attractive bathroom, featuring a shower over tub and stone-topped vanity.
Upstairs is a fabulous master suite, boasting spectacular downtown skyline views and outlooks from the hills to the south and north, as well to the East Bay hills, Bay Bridge, and the ocean. The expansive master bedroom has three closets, and the master bath ensuite has a tile glass-enclosed shower.
The crowning jewel of this home is certainly the backyard – deep and wide, this urban oasis stretches back on multiple levels, allowing for separate sections for seating, landscaping, dining, and a viewing deck. Two stone stairways lead up the terraced sections to a wood viewing deck, where it feels as though you can see the whole city below!
On the left side of the house is access to the large basement, with multiple storage areas and high ceilings. There is great expansion potential in this area as well as in portions of the attic off the master bedroom. The current owners have had expansion plans drawn up, which include the addition of a garage.
Move in and live comfortably, enjoying the views and light, while planning a larger renovation, or enjoy as-is!
The location is superb – Laidley Street curves around the east flank of Glen Park, and features homes with unique architecture and large lots. It borders both Noe Valley and Bernal Heights, with easy freeway access for a commute to the South Bay.
