Tucked away on a well maintained but little-known street, this sunny Mission Terrace home is full of surprises. An ultra-charming Spanish Eclectic façade belies the vast and modern interior of this single family home. An extensive renovation and expansion in 2014 converted this house into an ultra-practical and stylish abode.
Upon entering the home, you step into the open living room, illuminated by bay windows and a skylight. The living room is well integrated with the kitchen, making it ideal for entertaining. The modern kitchen with white cabinets and dark stone counters features an island with additional storage, gas range, side-by-side refrigerator, and stainless steel appliances. An adjacent formal dining room comfortably seats eight guests and provides an intimate dinner setting. Continue down the hallway to find the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom that opens to a gracious wrap-around deck overlooking the flourishing garden with views to the southern hills. The adjacent second bedroom also enjoys direct access to the upper deck and gorgeous views. The full bathroom, located off the hallway, boasts a modern tiled shower over tub, and vanity with ample storage.
Follow the beautiful hardwood floors down the stairs into the spacious family room that serves as the hub of the lower level. Off of the family room, you will find two more peaceful garden-facing bedrooms, a full bathroom, a sizeable home office, and direct access to the garage. An exterior door off the family room beckons you into the enchanting and abundantly sunny south-facing yard with a large patio, a slightly elevated wood deck that is perfect for al-fresco dining, central and perimeter planter beds that showcase an overabundance of blooming flowers and mature trees, including apple, persimmon, and lemon trees and a grape vine. Urban gardeners, pet-lovers and grill masters, take note!
The garage accommodates one car and features a utility sink, a full sized washer and dryer, and additional storage space. Feel like walking instead of driving? 19 Arago is just one block away from Balboa Park, which encompasses Boxer Stadium (sports field), baseball fields, tennis courts, an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor skate park and children’s playground. Also within walking distance are the Balboa Park and Glen Park BART Stations, the J-Church MUNI line, and the retail corridors of the Mission Terrace, Sunnyside, Glen Park and Excelsior neighborhoods. The easy accessibility to Interstate 280 and multiple transit options makes it a perfect location for weekday commuters and weekend travelers alike.
