about this home's










Located on a coveted residential block just steps from Dolores Park, this turn of the century building was taken down to the studs and renovated head-to-toe in 2019 with the highest standards of modern construction. The property includes two separate stunning residences with close to 2700 square feet of combined open, contemporary living space with a clean bright aesthetic throughout.

Offering a total of five bedrooms and four bathrooms, the building maintains its historic street-side façade, while introducing a covered front porch & contemporary front doors which exude colorful sensibilities.

With wide-planked hardwood floors, 11-foot-high ceilings, new double-paned windows, and a crisp pallet of contemporary finishes throughout, the property includes a larger residence with two private decks, four bedrooms and three bathrooms on two levels, as well as a separate, beautifully appointed one bedroom residence with picturesque bay windows.

Both residences have brand new Chef’s kitchens, and access to a spectacular two-level terraced rear garden, and deep shared 2-car garage. With a flexible design where each residential floor has independent access to the street­, the building offers versatility with the potential to serve as a large family compound with an extended family/au-pair, or as a prime multi-unit rental investment in a superb location.

20 Hancock Street - Units A & B

The vibrant neighborhood of Dolores Heights is located just west of the Mission District, is sandwiched between The Castro and Noe Valley, and is considered one of the Bay Area’s most affluent neighborhoods. Victorian and Edwardian-style homes – many of which were built in the early 20th-Century – make up a majority of the real estate in Dolores Heights, with condos and townhomes sprinkled throughout. Since Twin Peaks block the strong winds from the west, Dolores Heights residents enjoy a warm, sunny climate compared to other San Francisco neighborhoods. Mission Dolores Park hugs the eastern border of Dolores Heights, and is a popular gathering place for outdoor activities and festivals. The grassy lawns are ideal for afternoon picnics or kicking around a soccer ball. Amenities provided at Mission Dolores Park include tennis courts, basketball courts, a playground, and two off-leash dog areas. The park also hosts a variety of events including Film Nights and live performances. When residents of Dolores Heights want to enjoy a fun night out with friends, or a delicious meal without venturing too far from home, 24th Street is one of the more popular options. Notable shops and restaurants in Dolores Heights include: Terra Mia Ceramic Studio: Let your creativity shine with your children or friends with a day of painting ceramic pottery! Terra Mia also offers a private room for parties and groups, which can hold anywhere from 6 to 14 people! Hi-Way Burger & Fry: With massive portions of high-quality burgers, fries, and milkshakes, Hi-Way Burger & Fry is the ultimate burger joint near Dolores Heights. Saru Sushi Bar: This quaint sushi and sake bar may not look like much, but with a Zagat rating of 4.6 for their food, it’s easy to see why locals and tourists flock here.
