Features

This graciously handsome, craftsman home is situated on one of the most delightful winding blocks of Ingleside Terrace.  Beautifully set back atop an arching front garden and overlooking a lushly landscaped and peaceful rear yard awash in natural color, this home sits on an oversized lot and welcomes it’s new owners to create a vision of their own with historic ties to its 100 year past.

Constructed around 1917, the home was purposefully designed to welcome in an abundance of light through every room and to provide ample and graceful living spaces fit for a growing family…yet with fine attention to the exquisite wood craftsmanship throughout.

Copious amounts of finely honed detail abound in the expansive living and dining rooms, warmed with washed light from the western and southwestern exposures over Mercedes Way.  Original built-in hutches and cabinets are finely tuned and exhibit exceptional care over the past century of living.  The delightful breakfast room off the rear gardens provides a peaceful place for contemplation and soft morning light while enjoying a multitude of mature plantings dappled in sunlight.   Adjacent, the expansive kitchen and walk-in pantry provide plenty of space for entertaining while cooking and offer a glimpse to the expansive dining room for a touch of connectedness when desired.

 

The upper level hosts three bedrooms and a captivating western facing sunroom with stunning views over the winding neighborhood and beyond to the Pacific Ocean.  An attached sun-deck provides even more expansive outlooks and a place to capture a sunny glint off the ocean beyond.  The master bedroom sits to the rear of the home overlooking the gardens and landscapes beyond and benefits from soft morning light through the clerestory window above.  The 2nd bedroom is complete with en-suite bath and the third bedroom doubles as a sizable home office.  

The expansive and bright lower level is perfect for a game room, TV lounge or other play space and features an attached bedroom and bath plus it’s own private side entry.

A detached 2-car side-by-side garage (in need of structural repair) completes this wonderfully gracious and unique property.   Come create your own vision of living at 64 Mercedes on this magical Ingleside Terrace block!

Neighborhood


Ingleside Terrace

Ingleside Terrace is another one of those best-of-both-worlds neighborhoods found in the Southwestern area of San Francisco. It was developed around the old Ingleside Racetrack, which once attracted jockeys from all over the country. Urbano Drive marks the old track and is very visible on any map. It's rumored that the home at nearby 280 Byxbee Avenue was once the jockey's clubhouse, and the very 1st automobile race in California was held at the racetrack in 1900.

The neighborhood officially opened in 1913, offering Edwardian era San Franciscans a true residential park. Ingleside Terrace offers modern city dwellers a quiet, peaceful, almost suburban atmosphere with easy access to urban amenities. This is a very walkable neighborhood, with Ocean Avenue shopping and services and the Stonestown Galleria Mall within blocks. Muni's K-line streetcar runs right along Ocean Avenue and straight to West Portal with all of its shops and dining to the north, or down to the Glen Park or Balboa Park BART stations and City College to the south.

San Francisco State University is also nearby. Adjacent Junipero Serra Boulevard offers commuters easy access to the Peninsula. The Ingleside Terraces Homes Association remains very active, hosting community-building events like garage sales and holiday caroling. Its newsletter, The Sundial, is named after what some suspect to be the world's largest sundial; it was erected by Ingleside Terrace's developer in Entrada Court as a publicity stunt and has been diligently keeping track of the time since 1913.
