Located in a quiet neighborhood about 15 minutes from downtown San Francisco, Miraroma Park is home to many homes dating from the 1920s to the 1930s. The house is unique in that it was custom built for the original owner, but most of its neighbors were built by local developers.

The main drug, Portola Drive, is a few blocks away, with a CVS drugstore, Starbucks, and a family-owned organic market. The house is also close to Glen Canyon Park, an approximately 70-acre park with deep canyons where hiking trails intersect, and Mount Davidson, where the trails lead to the city’s highest peak.

size: 2,015 square feet

Price per square foot: $ 1,092

indoor: A short road from the sidewalk to the front door passes through a garden landscaped with succulents and rose bushes.

To the right of the entrance is a living room with a white brick fireplace and a corner window facing the street. Over there is a dining room with parquet floors and high windows that fill the space with natural light. Outside the dining room is a refurbished kitchen with white cabinets, gray counters, stainless appliances and a breakfast corner with built-in benches.

On the left side of the foyer is the stairs leading to the second floor. At the top of the stairs, the main suite has a bedroom with large windows facing the street and a bathroom recently refurbished with marble tiles that combine walls, floors, bathtubs and showers. Next door there is a room large enough to hold a queen size bed. A four-leaf tiled bathroom connects to another room.

More stairs lead to the loft on the 3rd floor and can be used as a 4th bedroom or family room. This space has windows overlooking the adjacent rooftop and a wall-mounted TV space.

Outdoor space: There is a path leading from the front yard to the outdoor dining terrace, protected by mature greenery. Behind the house is a small lawn, deck and gravel terrace. The four-car garage is large enough to be reconstructed as an additional living space or guesthouse.

San Juan Capistrano in southern Orange County is loved for its easy access to the famous landscapes of Southern California. Dana Point’s coastline is about 20 minutes west, and Ronald W.
