’Tis a red-letter day when a home in Sherwood Forest, San Francisco’s smallest neighborhood, lands on the market. And this one, a Spanish/Mediterranean home built in 1938, is up for grabs for $2,495,000.

Featuring four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 2,695 square feet, 265 Yerba Buena Avenue comes with an entirely new look care of a recent renovation. Here you’ll find an electric fireplace dolled up with Heath Ceramics tile from the floor to the ceiling, a new kitchen with white countertops and cabinetry, newfangled light fixtures similar to the ones found in many new SF constructions, and a master bathroom with marble-paneling.

There is a sunken living room, though it’s not the conversation pit-style ones briefly popular in the 1960s. This one is a step-down affair.

Measuring a mere two by three suburban streets in length and nestled between St. Francis Wood and Miraloma Park, there are approximately 200 homes in Sherwood Forest. The only street that starts and ends in Sherwood Forest is Robinhood Drive, a street that’s so hidden and difficult to find that the late San Francisco Chronicle columnist Herb Caen once penned an article about getting lost trying to find it on his way to Thanksgiving dinner in 1986.

The home’s listing is through Sylvia Cahill and Keely Ferguson of Vanguard Properties.
