15th & 15th

Located in the heart of 15th and 15th, this charming craftsman completely remodeled in 2010 – effectively a new build with the original brick facade maintained, merging modern build standards with original charm. Shelf basement was dug to give 9 feet height, new foundation was poured and new footings and double foundation walls connected. Stud walls were constructed moving away from the original double brick, and creating a better earthquake-secure home, and the brick was attached to the new studs. This foundation wall work, and main floor structural improvements, allowed a second story to be added. All new electrical, new plumbing, water main and sewer line, 1" R7 spray foam and R13 pink foam throughout the walls, and high end choices on the interior including custom white oak millwork (finish work done by woodworking craftsman who did the millwork for the Museum of Fine Arts) designed to match the original built in cabinets and fireplace of the original home, custom panel fridge, freezer, and wine refrigerator doors to match the kitchen, two gas fireplaces (main floor and primary bedroom), Sierra Pacific windows, 2010 roof, 2019 gutters, two furnaces and air conditioners, as well as heated concrete floors in the basement (water heater replaced 2020), buried main electrical service line, on-demand water systems (replaced 2021), Aprilaire whole-house humidifier. All of these features were designed within an open main floor living/kitchen/dining area. Sweeping staircase leads to the upper level. It has three bedrooms including the primary suite with ensuite, a second bath, (both baths with heated floors) and a generous laundry with high efficiency front-loading washer & dryer. Basement contains a family room, two bedrooms with Jack & Jill bathroom, generous light from the above-grade egress windows. One set of french doors open to a large Trex deck overlooking the backyard; a second set open to the large covered front porch. Yard is well established and self-maintaining with boxwood hedges, rose bushes, lilies, lilac bushes, and many other flowering plants, supported by multi-zoned and timed sprinkler system. Generous height two car garage, with stairway to second level storage area. Importantly, the large front porch was maintained – a welcome entry and a beautiful spot to enjoy your home. Perfect for the family who values being a stones throw from unique 15th and 15th local businesses, including craft bakery, Italian deli, gelato shop, independent bookstore, and local cafes.
