There is so much to fall in love with at this late-midcentury home atop the desirable University Mound area of Portola. The inviting and highly livable floor plan offers an open living/dining room that extends outdoors to a sunny deck and garden below, as well as kitchen, half bath, and two-car interior-access garage, with three generously sized bedrooms and two baths upstairs. Glass bricks stream light in all day long while maintaining privacy. The kitchen offers flexible use and a pocket door, the easterly views extend onto and past the bay, and the two-car garage plus six (yes, six!) closets are a storage lover’s dream. Recessed lighting on dimmers, beautiful bamboo flooring, modern kitchen and baths, new landscaping, more! Neighborhood is well-serviced by MUNI, it's 1.3 miles to Glen Park BART, and Hwy 101/280 access are convenient, along with grocery stores and the Alemany farmers market. Closer still are McLaren Park and the renovated Palega Recreation Center.

The Portola area was named for Don Gaspar de Portola, an explorer in 1769 who was charged with finding Monterey Bay. He overshot his target and stumbled upon San Francisco Bay instead. In the early 1900s it remained mostly agricultural with cattle grazing on the hills, and produce and flower gardens near what is now the 101. Today, the Portola neighborhood is approximately one square mile in size with a high percentage of owner-occupied single-family homes. Residents can be found taking a stroll through McLaren Park or shopping along San Bruno Avenue or Mission and Geneva in nearby Excelsior, homes to a variety of eateries, markets, bakeries, schools, churches, business strips, and the groundbreaking Family Connections community resource center. The Palega Rec Center underwent an incredible renovation a few years ago, and during "normal times," it is home to an incredible number of free classes and games.
The neighborhood is known for being at the northern edge of the city's diverse and large McLaren Park, as well as having a high percentage of homeowners, great schools, and easy access to freeways and public transit. University Mound, the hilltop section of Portola, is known for hosting a convent, a ladies' convalescnet home (now Portola Gardens), and a vast collection of flower and vegetable nurseries and greenhouses that served the city in the first half of the 20th century.
