about this home's










Property Overview:

Ideally situated in the heart of the Marina on a quiet block, this charming three-unit building offers two 2-bedroom full floor flats with beautifully renovated modern kitchens, hardwood floors, sunrooms, and great light throughout, as well as a junior 1-bedroom garden apartment on the ground floor. Originally built in 1924, the building includes a two-car garage, with adjacent laundry facilities and a private backyard with sustainable landscaping on an extra deep lot.

With the two upper units currently vacant, this property presents a unique opportunity for an owner-occupant to reside on the top floor while generating income from the lower units, or for savvy investors seeking a turn-key rental property in one of San Francisco's most coveted neighborhoods.

Top Foor Flat (1643 Chestnut):

Enter the building by walking up a gated flight of terrazzo stairs to enter the 3rd floor flat. Here an internal stairway with refinished hardwood floors leads you up to a bright entry landing with two spacious walk-in hall closets.

Step to the left to enter an expensive formal living room with four bay windows along the north end of the room that allow for an abundance of light. The room is highlighted by a beautiful brick fireplace at one end with a tile hearth and flanked by custom-built bookshelves on either side.

The living room opens to a formal dining room with modern lighting overhead, offering hardwood floors, a south facing window, and convenient flow to the kitchen, entry way and living room.

Adjacent to the dining room, step into a recently remodeled kitchen featuring bright quartz counters and white custom cabinetry that beautifully contrasts with the black slate tile flooring below. The kitchen is well-equipped with recessed lighting overhead and a stainless suite of appliances, including a gas range with hood, deep stainless sink, and refrigerator. A convenient built-in spice rack and a pantry on the back wall add functionally, while an exterior door opens to an enclosed porch, providing access to a utility sink and room for a washer and dryer.

Head down a breezy main hallway to find a full bathroom on the right with vintage yellow tile with blue trim and shower over bath. In addition to the main bathroom, a separate second toilet room with original tile is conveniently located next to the full bathroom.

At the end of the hall find a primary bedroom, with new light fixture overhead, south facing windows, and a large closet. The primary bedroom opens to an attached sunroom-nursery-office with parquet wood flooring. Boasting large windows facing three directions, South, East, and West, this bright sunroom adds flexible living space to suit a wide range of needs.

To the left of the primary room, find a second bedroom, with a large closet, new light fixture and south facing windows overlooking the garden.

Second Floor Flat (1641 Chestnut):

Head down one flight of stairs to enter the second-floor unit and discover another gorgeous, updated full floor flat offering two bedrooms plus sunroom featuring the same footprint as the unit upstairs, with some minor variations. Here a remodeled kitchen with granite counters and stainless appliances includes beige tile flooring, and a single full bathroom is split into two rooms.

Garden Level:

Walk down to the street level to find a garage with room for 2 cars side by side or 3 cars in tandem. The garage is attached to a well-equipped spacious laundry room with Whirlpool washer and dryer, as well as multiple shelves for storage. The garage level also includes attached storage rooms with ample space for housing an assortment of items.

A tradesman entrance to the left of the garage provides access to the garden unit (1641A), a ground level junior 1-bedroom apartment offering wood laminate flooring, with a kitchenette, cozy living room, a full bathroom, and a bedroom with direct entry to the garden.

Step through the laundry room to enter the garden in the rear yard where you’ll find mature plantings, including lemon trees and a pathway, surrounded by eco-friendly grass. On the southern end of the property find two more exterior rooms, with charming facades and windows, providing additional storage or myriad possibilities to expand living spaces.

Fabulous Marina District location, yet NOT in the liquefaction, with a 96 Walk Score, you’re just a quick stroll to the coveted shops and restaurants on Chestnut St. Within easy walking distance to Chrissy Field, Fort Mason, and the Marina Green, with public transportation options nearby, this location provides seamless access to a fantastic urban lifestyle and the best San Francisco has to offer.

Neighborhood Gallery

1641-1643 Chestnut Street

With close proximity to the beach, spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and the Golden Gate Bridge, and convenient access to shopping and dining, it’s easy to see why the Marina District is considered to be one of San Francisco’s Best Places to Live. If you want to bump elbows with bros and socialites alike, Marina is the place for you.

Located approximately three miles north of Downtown San Francisco, the Marina is where affluence and history combine to create a truly unique neighborhood. You will find a variety of beautiful homes and condos in the Marina District, including Mediterranean-style villas and upgraded row houses with their own ground-floor garages.

The Marina District is in an ideal location for those who love the ocean, but still want to live near the heart of San Francisco. Residents of the Marina District are just a 20-minute bus ride from the Financial District, and less than a 40-minute bus ride from Google headquarters. The base of the Golden Gate Bridge is less than a mile from the Marina District, and the Palace of Fine Arts, one of the Marina’s most historic landmarks and an architectural marvel, is just a few blocks away.

If you love the outdoors, the Marina District is within a few blocks of Crissy Field, a lush greenscape that is perfect for variety of activities. The beach provides majestic views of the ocean and the Golden Gate Bridge, and is ideal for kitesurfing, kite flying, running, or just laying back and soaking in the sun.

Residents of the Marina District can take care of just about everything they need within a few blocks of their doorstep. The Safeway located on the corner of Marina Boulevard and Buchanan Street makes it easy to keep your refrigerator and pantry full, and the nearby U.S. Post Office will help you with any package and mailing needs. Anytime you need a new iPhone or Apple Watch, the Apple store on Chestnut Street will ensure you always have convenient access to the latest technology.
