Combining historic architectural details with contemporary inspiration, this exquisite Edwardian building offers the incredibly rare opportunity to acquire two park-facing homes overlooking spectacular Mission Dolores Park. Consisting of a three-bedroom, two-bathroom owner's residence (3829) and a top-floor two-bedroom, one-bathroom flat (3827), plus a charming earthquake cottage guest suite and 2 car tandem garage parking, this outstanding building is ideal for investors or for homebuyers seeking additional rental income or multigenerational living quarters.
Thoughtful details and masterful updates add an elegant ambiance throughout the gracious owner's unit that occupies the two lower floors. Double-planed windows flood living spaces with glorious natural light, while tall ceilings feature recessed and designer lighting. Refinished hardwood floors run underfoot, and handsome millwork includes bold enframements and double crown moldings. Solid-core doors boast upscale hardware, and plentiful closets and built-in cabinetry add excellent storage throughout.
On the lower floor, the sunny family room makes a dramatic first impression with magnificent up-close park views and a wall of custom cabinetry. Ahead, a spacious windowed home office and reading nook are bordered by attractive wainscoting and more convenient built-ins. A secondary bedroom includes a roomy closet and delightful desk/vanity area, while the full bathroom on this level features floor-to-ceiling tile, a glassed-in tub/shower, console sink and contemporary fixtures. A massive temperature-controlled wine room holds thousands of bottles, ensuring your favorite vintage is always at hand.
Head up the beautifully refurbished staircase to discover inlaid floors and 10-foot-tall ceilings on the upper floor. Host lavish dinner parties alongside treetop bay windows and a branched globe chandelier in the dining area, or relax in front of the gas-burning fireplace in the adjacent living room. Chefs will love the spacious eat-in kitchen filled with full-feature custom cabinetry, stone countertops and backsplashes. Test your culinary skill with premium stainless steel and integrated appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, vented six-burner Wolf Gourmet range with a custom Thermador range hood and Bosch dishwasher. The adjacent laundry room/butler's pantry features a stacked Bosch washer-dryer, additional Sub-Zero freezer and dishwasher drawers by Fisher & Paykel.
In the hall, a full bathroom relaxes with a clawfoot soaking tub and separate rain shower. At the rear, two king-size bedrooms feature southern outlooks, large closets and beautiful French doors that open to the serene rear patio. This fully fenced oasis welcomes al fresco lounging and entertaining with stone pavers, gas and water hookups, and lovely terraced and irrigated planter boxes filled with flowering shrubs and fruit trees. Across the yard, the nicely finished earthquake cottage is ideal as a home office, artist studio or guest suite with lots of windows, refinished hardwood floors, closet space and a full bathroom.
The separate top-floor flat boasts carpeted stairs, wainscoting and gleaming brass light fixtures. The inviting living room is sun-splashed thanks to windows north and south. Relax with a book in the cozy window seat or entertain in front of the breathtaking bay window and wood-burning fireplace.

Located in popular Mission Dolores, this building is surrounded by fantastic shopping, greenmarkets, restaurants and nightlife venues. Right outside your door, Mission Dolores Park offers 16 acres of lush lawns, sports courts and fields, a playground, two off-leash dog areas and outstanding community events. This walkable neighborhood offers easy access to transportation, including J Church at the end of the block and BART trains just over a half-mile away.
Sunny, flat, and centrally located, the Mission represents the heart and especially the soul of San Francisco. Equally attractive to immigrants and a burgeoning herd of hipsters in ironic t-shirts, the Mission is still the melting pot of San Francisco. Here you'll find traditional Mexican taquerias and panaderias, pop up galleries, freshly minted block-long live/work lofts in former canneries, and a new generation of chefs determined to make their mark and earn a Michelin star. The neighborhood is highly walkable: a major urban shopping center at 16th and Potrero offers groceries, a gym, post office, office supplies, and a Peets Coffee. The museum district at 3rd and Howard is nearby, and the ball park is not far. Public Transportation is great. MUNI bus lines crisscross the neighborhoods and there are two BART stations at 16th and Mission and 24th and Mission which serve the neighborhood. With the rise of the dot-coms in the mid-90s, the old industrial warehouses of the Mission district were converted into open air, open concept workspaces. These attracted a new kind of population: educated, highly-skilled, and eagerly looking for the next big thing: be it entertainment, dining, culture, or dance club. And they wanted to be able to walk to work, or at least ride their bike. Housing was developed to match the taste and needs of this generation of newcomers. Many of the old warehouses preserved their old brick facades. Inside luxury interiors feature exposed brick walls, huge timbered beams, two-story high living rooms with airy ceilings, industrial kitchens, and of course, high speed Internet connections. Stately turn-of-the-century homes line the sunny blocks of this uniquely San Franciscan district. In between its main thoroughfares of Dolores, Guerrero, and Valencia, you can find many smaller hidden architectural treasures dotting the intimate cross-street alleyways. San Francisco's oldest building stands at the corner of 16th and Dolores. Constructed in 1776, Mission Dolores draws the gaze of passersby with its clean, early-colonial Mexican style. It remains an active Roman Catholic church, and is open daily for services and to visitors alike. Just around the corner is Dolores Park, one of the city's great neighborhood hangouts, where you might be lucky enough to catch an outdoor performance by the San Francisco Mime Troupe. Time seems of no consequence on sunny afternoons while families recline along the comfortably sloping landscape. Daytime is for the sun-worshipping crowds, while warm nights are all about people watching. Valencia Street is among the hippest nighttime destination on the planet. Throngs of young folks dropping into the trendy new eateries, filling the local watering holes for their fix of poetry and music, hitting the local performance spaces for inspired avant-garde happenings. You will find a cultural mecca, as well as a food experience beyond compare along these lively streets. Public transportation is as good as it gets in the Mission. Two BART stations, at 16th and Mission and 24th and Mission, complement a complete bus schedule to downtown and beyond.
