624 Congo Street
Bright, sunny oasis in the city! 624 Congo is a beautiful split-level family home with a sprawling backyard on a coveted and peaceful block, with easy access to main transportation hubs. The home features a large living room with a gas fireplace, a formal dining room, and a gracious kitchen with ample storage on the first level. Upstairs there is a remodeled bathroom flanked by two generous bedrooms - one facing west and the other facing east. The east-facing bedroom window offers a sliding door that leads directly onto a deck that is the entire width of the house with stunning views, overlooking the huge garden below, as well as the foliage of Glen Park and even views to the waters of the Bay.
Directly down from the kitchen is the master suite, with a wall of windows facing the impressive eastern views, custom cabinetry, well-appointed closets, and a peaceful ambiance. The master bathroom has an oversized shower, and there is an additional closet for storage. Exiting the master suite there is a laundry room, and from there one can either enter the garage directly, or continue downstairs to the vast “workshop” - a versatile space with great head-height that the previous owners used for exercising, woodwork, storage, and equipment. Exiting the workshop, one steps down into the magical garden surrounded by lush plantings, trees, flowers, multiple seating areas and a fire pit.
The quick access to Glen Canyon park, the shops and restaurants of the village, BART and major thoroughfares is a welcome convenience, but one feels completely transported from busy city life while sitting by the fire or enjoying one’s garden on a sunny day.
