Live your dream life on Dolores!
Welcome to 1626 Dolores, a gorgeous Noe Valley Victorian with exquisite curb appeal and period details. This circa-1900 home boast 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and 2-car garage parking.
Up the terrazzo steps and through a set of double doors, a grand formal entry receives visitors. A stained glass skylight and transom window above the front door bathes this area with natural light, while picture rails provide an opportunity to display your favorite pieces. Decorative wainscoting runs throughout the foyer and main hall, as do beautiful softwood floors.
The formal living and dining rooms are both located just off the foyer and invite guests to dine and mingle. With 11-foot ceilings, a sit-in Bay window, and gas fireplace with stunning mantle, the living room provides an ideal atmosphere for socializing or cozying up with a book. A set of smoothly-operating pocket doors cordons off the living from the dining room when desired. In the dining room, a striking Moooi fixture hangs from above and a built-in buffet with inlain mirror accentuate the space.
Down the main hall you’ll find the secondary bedroom and across from that, the main bath. The bathroom is tastefully tiled and features a newly-glazed tub with overhead shower and Kohler fixtures. A separate water closet is split on the other side of the hall.
At the rear of the home are the kitchen and master suite. Both are open to the tranquil garden, which has a huge L-shaped deck perched above. The west-facing yard receives fantastic natural light and a neighbor’s palm tree rustles in the breeze giving a SoCal vibe. The microclimate in this part of Noe Valley is optimal, thus making the indoor/outdoor living spaces of the home usable most of the year. The grass terrace is surrounded by flower beds— you’ll discover a maple tree, bird bath, fragrant hydrangeas, and succulents. The deck, perched above, is the perfect place to host BBQ’s and have outdoor dinner parties.
The kitchen is outfitted with high-end stainless appliances, including a 4-burner gas range by Viking, a Bosch dishwasher, and SubZero side-by-side refrigerator. The kitchen has tons of storage and has two unique features — an integrated breakfast bar for 4-5 people and an office nook with built-ins. The kitchen has gorgeous glass tiles lining the backsplash, granite counters, and garbage disposal. A hood provides ventilation over the range.
The master suite features built-in shelving and a decorative fireplace with period tiles around the hearth. A chandelier hangs from above and the home’s coved ceilings continue into this space. The master bath is very private and has a stall shower, pedestal sink, and custom medicine cabinet with storage and articulating shaving/makeup mirror.
Around the home you’ll discover dimmable lights by Lutron, recessed lights with aperture openings, CAT5e, integrated speakers, designer light pendants, double-paned windows, ornate heat registers, and Victorian accents.
The lower level of the home, which boasts ~1,295 square feet (per drafting service), is an unfinished space with expansion potential. In its current state, the space offers a laundry area with full-sized Kenmore washer & dryer, a sauna (included in sale), and parking for 1 to 2 cars depending on size.
Many nearby amenities and neighborhood gems are proximate to palm-dotted Dolores! The J-Church light rail is a block away, as is Upper Noe Valley rec center. Shops, restaurants, and watering holes are all within steps, and commuting to either the FiDi or the Peninsula is a breeze.
