Dolores Park House

Dolores Park House

Concrete counters, steel and plexiglass stairs, bluestone paving, white oak floor

Located at the South side of Dolores Park, this house is one of two on a typical San Francisco lot. This little rear house was renovated from a two-bedroom single floor cottage on a steep sloping site into a three-bedroom, two and a half bath home over two levels with a loft. The private bedrooms on the lower level were enhanced by a below ground garden patio at the rear and the loft at the top was opened to the sky with skylights. The loft has a framed view of the city and is a small quiet oasis in this very urban setting.
