What we loved about living here.
We loved living on Broderick Street! We moved into this grand but run down Victorian twenty years ago because we needed a larger home to raise our kids. We worked hard to bring back its vitality without eroding its old world charm. Soon, a teen age boy, a five year old girl, a couple of working professionals and a grandmother in the studio below rounded out our household.
We lived very happily here. The neighborhood went from transitional/sketchy to hip and happening. We were one of only two families with young children on our block when we moved in. Now the neighborhood is crawling with them. We loved the neighbors, the markets, the restaurants, and the urban “buzz” of the place.
Now, sadly, we are moving on. Grandma is in assisted living. The teenager is a working professional himself in NYC, and the little girl is a grad student in Berkeley. It’s time for this couple to downsize and turn this much improved house over to the next happy household. We hope you love this house as much as we did and will continue to maintain and improve it for years to come.
The North of Panhandle area, or Nopa, is rapidly becoming one of the city's most in-demand neighborhoods. Situated just north of Golden Gate Park's Panhandle, and abutted by the Divisadero corridor, you'll always feel there's something to do, and within walking distance! Here you'll feel central to everything, with easy freeway access via Fell and Oak streets, several Muni lines at your doorstep, and very easily navigable bicycle routes. And yet, the nearby green spaces imbue the entire area with a low key, peaceful air. Services and entertainment are easily accessed, making car-free living a very appealing lifestyle choice. In addition to Divisadero's many trendy cafes, clubs and shops, you can do your grocery shopping at the Lucky Center on Fulton, and hit up Broderick Place for speciality deli goods. Homes near the Panhandle are exceptionally desirable. There are also multi-unit apartment buildings and condos for the investment buyer. It's also a great spot to bike, shoot hoops or just chill out by the bandstand. Young professionals and students, families, and long-time residents fill up Nopa's many Victorian and Edwardian single family homes and multi-unit buildings. There are plenty of opportunities to meet your neighbors, be it at Sunday's Divisadero Farmer's Market or the bi-monthly Divisadero Art Walk. The North of Panhandle Neighborhood Association does a wonderful job of organizing events and keeping everyone informed of neighborhood news. The neighborhood even has its own parents' group.
