Built in 1921 by the late owner's father, this 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath home oozes vintage charm from the glass door knobs, to the beautiful wainscoting and molding to the high ceilings, hardwood floors and big front porch.  Although the house has been updated over the years, the vintage charm remains and the pride of ownership is evident.

There are big picture windows throughout, all dual paned.  The living room has a wood burning fireplace and is adjacent to the dining room. The dining room opens to a sun room through French doors with morning sun streaming in and views of the garden and Picnic Valley.  The good size eat-in kitchen is cheerful with lots of light and windows with a sliding glass door that opens to a deck for dining.

website for san francisco modern real estate listings.

I had a termite inspection at my house today which made me think this is a timely topic for new and seasoned homeowners. April kicks off termite season when these winged critters emerge from existing and thriving termite colonies to fly off and establish new ones.  Just because you had a termite inspection when you purchased your home, doesn't mean you never need another one. 

When we bought our home 17 years ago, I was oblivious to termites and the damage they can cause until I saw them chomping through the hardwood floors in the living room.  That got my attention!  I was happily going along thinking they were dining on my neighbor's house, not mine.  After that, I got religion. Now, every 2-3 years I have a pest inspection and take care of

It’s tucked into a canyon on the flank of 2,571-foot Mount Tamalpais, near the giant redwoods of Muir Woods National Monument and marshland surrounding Richardson Bay.”
