DESCRIPTION:

SOLD ON 8/21/2013 for $787,000.

3606 Balfour Avenue is a California Craftsman built in 1920. The thoughtfulness and simplicity of the Arts & Crafts movement can be seen throughout: built-in bookshelves & china cabinets; crown molding from which to hang art; abundant windows to bring the outside in; and the quintessential covered front stoop.

The quaint two-story home sits on a foundation that was completely rebuilt in 2003 (front of the home) & 2007 (remaining sides). The sloped backyard was replanted with native plants and grasses, terraced with two decks and adorned with an energy efficient hot tub. It is truly an entertainer’s backyard.

The property is ideally located in Crocker Highlands, just .2 miles from the shops and eateries of Lakeshore Avenue (“Walk Score” of 86 out of 100), less than 2 miles from 19th Street BART, and just 11 miles from San Francisco. The local elementary school, Crocker Highlands Elementary, has a “GreatSchools Rating” of 10 out of 10.
