POTRERO HILL: A CAPTIVATING VIEW COTTAGE - $950,000
UNIQUE 1.Being the only one 2.Being without an equal 3.628 Rhode Island Street, San Francisco
This enchanting view home almost defies description! Located on a prime Potrero Hill Block, 628 Rhode Island is a free-standing and detached cottage that is one of three units in a stately turn-of-the-century structure. This condominium also contains a separate large studio space (view floor plans) with a kitchen, bath, high ceilings, and wonderful period details.
While under ownership of the current owner for fifty years, truly magnificent renovations have been undertaken illuminating the history of the building while adding modern influences to the spaces.
Positioned at the rear of the lot, the cottage is surrounded by serene outdoor spaces, mature vegetation, expansive City views, and receives abundant light from all directions. Upon entering the cottage, one is immediately aware that the spaces are designed in a manner that invites use in a variety of ways including having an entry-level master suite showcasing a Zen-like bathroom with a soaking tub.
The sense of serenity created within the cottage seems to challenge the fact that this home is located in the heart of a bustling destination neighborhood surrounded by notable restaurants, grocery stores, cafes, and boutiques. Insulated from the fog and chill of the Pacific Ocean, Potrero Hill is a truly coveted neighborhood that many are eager to call “home”.

For decades, Potrero Hill remained one of the best-kept secrets in San Francisco. Shipyards and working docks on one side of the hill, bakeries, breweries, and warehouses on the other gave a decidedly blue collar cast to this quiet neighborhood. As South of Market was colonized by the dot com explosion, the former warehouses and factories were converted to office space and live/work lofts. San Francisco high rises sprang up along the 3rd street corridor, and suddenly Potrero Hill was in the center of things-a short commute to the action.
Today, Potrero Hill has lots going for it besides its location, sunny weather, killer views, and easy commutes to downtown or Silicon Valley. The neighborhood is comprised mainly of single-family Victorian homes that withstood the 1906 earthquake. Shops along 18th street include Chez Papa, which offers some of the best French Provencal bistro cuisine on this side of the Atlantic. Blooms, named after the heroine of Ulysses, is a classic bar, offering pool tables, and jaw dropping views of the city at night. Long-time come-as-you-are favorite community coffee shop, Farley's, makes coffee strong enough to cut through any fog.
At the foot of Potrero, the scene is a lively mix of students at the California College of Art campus, and the California Culinary Academy, with local bar The Bottom of the Hill hosting up and coming new music acts. Locals get their groceries at the nearby shopping center at 16th and Potrero.
