This stately home is a rare beauty on one of Cole Valley’s most coveted and tree-lined streets that is rich in character and bathed in humility. The grand foyer of 508 Belvedere stands tall and mighty between the contemporary elegance of a formal living room and dining room -- creating a sense of calm upon crossing the threshold.The lovingly refreshed kitchen at the rear extends effortlessly outside to a garden complete with an acoustic water feature and a kaleidoscope of flowers and trees frequented by fabled hummingbirds on sunny days. Retreat to the upper level and choose from five inspiring bedrooms, each with their own allure, including one with a generous deck overlooking the serene garden below. Coming and going is a breeze from the interior-access garage on the ground floor. Leave the car behind and stroll to the shops and cafes on Cole Street, where people often greet one another by first name, and catch the MUNI to explore the city that surrounds this remarkable home.
In Cole Valley you can grab your groceries, get your haircut, pick up a prescription and get in a workout all while chatting up the local business owners and bumping into your friends within a few blocks of your home. On weekends, visitors from near and far patiently wait in line to order the “Miracle Pancakes” (made with sour cream and poppy seeds) at Zazie, or shop for vintage and handcrafted children’s toys at the circus-themed Tantrum, or procure a wedge of one of 407 brands at Say Cheese.
The spot at Carl and Cole Streets where commuters now catch the N Judah line was once a streetcar stop, which helped turn the neighborhood into a transit hub. It slowly evolved from farmland into what it is today, and during the 1990s dot-com bubble, many tech millionaires, including Craig Newmark of Craigslist, called the area home. With an active community group hosting annual events such as a street fair and Halloween on Belvedere Street, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more friendly and fun place to live.
