As this city moves in new directions, 871 Valencia is a breathtaking testament to the very best of San Francisco. This is a home lived in for 40 years, maintained and improved and curated meticulously by the architect and designer who inhabited it. A home that needed not be staged because every existing interior detail, fixture, and piece of furniture lends itself so perfectly to something utterly incomparable.
Up plush carpeted stairs from Valencia St is a two-bedroom, one-bath breathe of fresh taste, a burst of classic wainscoting, impeccable color, Venetian blinds reflected in wood thresholds, and functional pocket doors that reflect the history of its architecture. The bathroom is a work of interior art, a geometric wonder rendered in striking colors and modern edges. Each bedroom is a restful haven with unique touches like suspended shelving and recessed wall cubbies, while a cozy reading room looks out over the hallway through French windows. A spacious kitchen is bedecked with striking wooden accents and appliances classic in aesthetic but modern in functionality. It opens onto a bright laundry room with access to a small outdoor deck—a serene sun room that offers ample space for supplies on shelves that extend up soaring walls. Both the dining room and living room are graced with fireplaces, beautiful hardwood floors, walls that climb up to high coved ceilings, and large windows with striking views.
871 Valencia is sweeping at 1,760 square feet, but you’ll never feel lost in it, just enveloped in warm light and an undeniable magnetism. It insists on Saturdays spent pouring over the newspaper in the living room, on Friday night dinner parties, on singing in the shower while getting ready for work, on simply standing in your own home and reveling in the profound privilege of owning a piece of San Francisco so exquisitely rendered.
Come in; you won’t ever want to leave.
