Built in 1932 in a highly desirable location, this elegant Mediterranean-style home offers vintage style and charm on an expansive waterfront lot with a large over-water deck and deep water dock. Spacious at nearly 2,400 square feet, the home offers four bedrooms, one partial and two full bathrooms, formal living and dining rooms, a study, an updated eat-in kitchen, a laundry room and an attached garage. Located just blocks from Lincoln Park and top schools, the location offers easy access to Encinal Market, Nob Hill Foods, downtown Park St., BART, the SF Ferry and freeways.

Set back on a deep, oversized lot, the home's distinguished Mediterranean architectural features include stucco walls, terra cotta tile rooflines, a loggia and arched windows and doors, all of which contribute to the home's wonderful curb appeal. A long driveway leads back to an attached garage and provides plenty of space for off-street tandem parking. ​

A charming Dutch door opens to an open, airy, foyer that offers views of the home's many formal rooms through rounded archways. On the right is the spacious, light-filled living room with a handsome oak floor, a 10-foot barrel ceiling, and a fireplace to gather around with family and friends. The oak floor continues into the large, formal dining room, also filled with natural light from a trio of oversized windows. The beautifully preserved door and window trim in these rooms are untouched by paint, and are found throughout the home. A spacious study/office is across from the living room and features original glass-fronted bookcases and a pair of French doors that open to the front loggia, bringing the outdoors inside.

The expansive, eat-in kitchen sits behind the dining room toward the back of the home, and has been updated with granite counters, a white porcelain farmer's sink, stainless steel appliances, new light fixtures and a newer oak floor that blends nicely with the vintage floors in the rest of the home. Sliding doors open to the backyard patio, lawn, and large private dock. How lovely to be able to walk out your back door and be just steps away from the water and your own private dock!

A staircase with decorative wrought-iron railings goes upstairs to the primary bedroom, a very spacious room with an oak floor, crown moulding, plantation shutters, a walk-in, cedar-lined closet and views of the backyard and the water. Another well-sized bedroom on this level offers many of the same features and sits next to an updated bathroom that has a bath, shower, new light fixtures and a vanity with a creamy quartz top. A split-level stairway leads up to two additional bedrooms with plenty of natural light and cedar-lined closets with organizers/built-ins. A full, updated bathroom is conveniently located on this level, situated between the bedrooms.

3229 Fernside Blvd provides the rare opportunity to own a spacious vintage home on a large, waterfront property in a prized location. Imagine sailing off on San Francisco Bay from your private dock at the end of a long day, or watch the sun rise in your kayak before the day begins. It doesn't get much better than this!
