    Description

    Truly rare and special property. Originally owned by the Hinkel family. Believed to have been a gracious and grand summer house, built as a private retreat for a San Francisco family. Every room has an abundance of windows, with wonderful light and views of nature. The overall verdant grounds create your own garden oasis. The environment maintains a sense of privacy and is captivating and serene. This residence feels like an oasis away from the hustle and bustle, with an expansive open summer porch feel. Updates in keeping with the lovely architecture, beautifully proportioned public rooms and great separation of space with access to sunny deck, and inviting outdoor spaces. Tucked on a private cul-de-sac surrounded by beloved John Hinkel Park yet blocks to Solano Avenue, Monterey Market and the Gourmet Ghetto, there simply is nothing like this. The home is expansive and the setting is spectacular, with a year round meandering creek and delightful natural park-like grounds.
