What do Jackson Pollock, Otis Redding, Michel Foucault, Andy Warhol, the Grateful Dead, Mark Rothko, the Beatles, and the creator of 1238 Stanyan Street all have in common?

Well, they were all born before the 1960s, but they all came of age during that turbulent and creative decade. They all took what already existed, and created something completely new. And in so doing, they made us see the world in an entirely different way. They defined an era, and were, each in their own way, at the pinnacle of their chosen field.

1238 is an iconic, modernist, three-story view home, on the last block of Stanyan, between Belgrave and 17th Street. The home was completely redesigned and rebuilt in 1969, by a leading architect and art collector, as a bright and airy sanctuary, where he could enjoy his family, as well as his magnificent collection of modern masterpieces.  It has recently been tastefully and respectfully refurbished, keeping all its striking design elements, while modernizing key amenities.

The light, volume, art space, green space, and distinct compartments of this unique home are like none other.

Nothing about it is over the top, yet so much of it is just right.

If you want to live in a piece of art that is as dramatic as it is understated, then this is the home you have been waiting for.


Cole Valley / Parnassus Heights

Most San Franciscans think of Parnassus and Ashbury Heights as the area surrounding the distinctively charming commercial district that runs along Cole Street. With its sidewalk cafes, bakeries and fromageries, Cole Valley brings a bit of je ne sais quoi to the heart of San Francisco. Residents can stroll down hill to find several very good restaurants, gourmet food and wine stores, some mom and pop storefronts and a locally-owned hardware store. Everyday basics like a mechanic, dry cleaner, gym and coffee shops are right here as well. The older single family homes in this district are popular with buyers; there are quite a few newer multi-unit buildings and condos to be found for investment buyers as well. The trees and lush landscaping that flourish here add to the area's overall charm. Weather patterns are fairly consistent, with foggy mornings and sunny afternoons, and the wind picks up the higher you head uphill. The N Judah Muni line stops right at Cole Street, making downtown transit a breeze. Several bus lines serve the neighborhood, and freeway access is easy, too. This is a very tight-knit neighborhood, and you're sure to start seeing familiar faces after a few short weeks here. The Cole Valley Improvement Association hosts an annual street fair, and Halloween on Belvedere Street is a family friendly spectacular every year.
