Perched on Bernal Heights’ north slope is this circa-1909 Edwardian. The exterior is all shingled—brown shingles from the top of the turret to the ground floor.
Featuring five beds, two baths, and 2,825 square feet, 4 Norwich bears bright interiors that belie its rustic facade. Updated throughout, the space boasts hardwood floors, crown moldings, period built-ins, clawfoot tub, and more.
It even has ample unused attic space that could (and should) be turned into another floor. “We invite you to bring your contractor, architect or designer,” chirps the listing ad.
The first floor used to be Hale’s Grocery, a turn of the century neighborhood corner store, which, years later, was then turned into a joining residential space.
Would be nice to see it return to a storefront—permit hell permitting, of course. Because who wouldn’t want to have their very own Edna’s Edibles attached their home a la Facts of Life?
Asking is $2,195,000.
