On a peaceful block in Noe Valley, this delightful multilevel Edwardian home features a living room, a dining room, a family room, a custom eat-in kitchen, two bedrooms—including a primary suite with a deck overlooking the backyard garden—and an in-law suite with a kitchen and bath. Dating to 1913, it has been thoughtfully updated yet retains lovely period detail, from inlaid hardwood flooring, coved ceilings, two fireplaces, and a built-in buffet hutch to artisanal stained glass.

Inviting Midcentury Aerie

Highlights include three bedrooms, an open living and dining room with skyline and bay views, a sunroom that would make an ideal office or media room, a wraparound rooftop terrace, a backyard garden, and an inviting kitchen with porcelain countertops, top-of-the-line appliances, and an original stained-glass window. Residents benefit from parking, storage space, and an elevator.
