Built in 1971, this downright enticing Bernal Heights midcentury (located north of Cortland, sternly notes the ad copy) went through a major renovation since it last sold in 2015. Over the course of a year, the home’s insides were stripped and the floor plan reconfigured. Open-floor concept? Oh, you know it.
Details: four beds, three baths, and and approximate 1,740 square feet. The look is midcentury all the way insofar as the exterior goes. Its old eye-wateringly dull yellow facade is now a luscious green with some sort of newfangled accent that, for better or worse, demands a double take. Arguably a big improvement.
Inside there are all of the trappings of a remodeled SF home in 2016: wood flooring, updated kitchen and baths with tile galore, expansive floor plans, recessed lighting (a concept that, if we may, has reached its peak), and, yes, a few Edison bulbs thrown in to appease the well-to-do types who still coo over that sort of thing.
No matter. This house oozes loveliness in so many ways that it’s okay to overlook any few of its overexposed touches.
