Merced Manor (Sub-District 3-f) is a compact neighborhood bordered by Sloat Boulevard to the north, 19th Avenue to the east, Eucalyptus Drive to the south and 20th Avenue to the west boasts beautifully kept residences. Most of the homes here were built between the early 1930s and the late 1950s, offering an impressive selection of architectural styles, from elaborate storybook homes with archways to the geometric lines of Streamline Moderne residences. Utilities are underground in this neighborhood and most properties have alleyways that allow homeowners to access their garages from the back, giving the neighborhood a gracious feel.

While being a residential neighborhood, Merced Manor is within walking distance of Stonestown Galleria, a full service shopping center. The nearby Lake Merced, Harding Park, the San Francisco Golf Club, the Olympic Club, and Stern Grove offer excellent biking, hiking and other recreational options. Access to Highway 1 and I-280 is quick and convenient, and public transportation allows one to reach downtown San Francisco in less than 30 minutes. (SF by Kate)

Englander House is a Wildrich A. Winterhalter designed 5,170 square foot Italianate built in the 1870s. Last sold for $2.65 million in 2013 ($450K over asking).

2014 BROKER BABBLE: This grand architecturally significant Italianate home, ca 1880, has been well preserved, with its decorated slant front bay, bold cornice, quoins, and columned portico. The main floor has a large entry hall dominated by a magnificent walnut banister, double parlor, formal dining room, kitchen, and half bath. Upstairs are 5 bedrooms and a full bath. The rear staircase leads to a penthouse with full bath. There is a full basement accessed from the main staircase. The interior is richly decorated and well preserved, but all systems are antiquated and will need replacement. The kitchen and baths will also require renovation. The house is on the city’s Architecturally Significant list, level 4, and has great potential for upscale professional offices, especially because it is close to the various court buildings and City Hall.

If you look closely at the top photo, this deteriorating Victorian is sadly and completely surrounded by barbed wire. But help appears to be on the way as plans are currently in the works for this beauty to be moved a half mile to a new site in Hayes Valley where it will become part of the Bryant Mortuary redevelopment project at 635 Fulton St. See rendering below.
