Nestled on a private and picturesque street on the North Slope of Bernal Heights, architect-owned 9 Massasoit offers an exquisite blend of modern elegance and thoughtful design. Boasting 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and approximately 1,674 square feet of finely-crafted living space (as per tax records), this residence captures the essence of contemporary urban living.
The home’s layout is ideal for both entertaining and everyday living. The kitchen features a tasteful matte finish backsplash by DaTile that elegantly complements the natural finish of the cabinets. The cabinets (KraftMaid) feature a soft-close mechanism, trays, and sliding drawers, enhancing functionality. The quartz counters, adorned with a subtle stone pattern, offer a tasteful touch and provide low-hassle ample space for culinary endeavors.
Among the kitchen's highlights, stainless steel appliances from top brands take center stage. A Bosch dishwasher, a Viking range with four burners, and a Viking hood present a sleek and cohesive look, while a stainless GE microwave and side-by-side JennAir refrigerator/freezer complete the ensemble. Modern lighting fixtures illuminate the breakfast bar, creating an inviting ambiance, including a striking hanging pendant by Sonneman.

Adjacent to the kitchen and living areas is the home’s dining room, which can accommodate proper dining table and is the perfect place for hosting dinner parties. Natural-finish oak hardwood floors evoke warmth, while Lutron lights on dimmers allow for personalized ambiance. Skylights on the main level add airiness.
Two bedrooms and a full bath are also located on the top floor.

The front bedroom is spacious and the rear bedroom is tucked away for maximum privacy. Custom Roman shades, abundant storage closets, and cable and cat wiring contribute to the modern conveniences of the home.
Descending to the lower level, you'll discover a primary suite that has undergone a complete studs-out renovation. Dual floating vanities with Duravit sinks, modern sconces by Sonneman, and an oversized glass shower stall redefine luxury in the primary bathroom. Handsome textured wallpaper adds sophistication to the space, complemented by heated floors and a separate water closet with a dual flush toilet by Toto, including a bidet. Pamper yourself in luxury!

The lower level also offers a conveniently located laundry closet with stackable front-loading Electrolux washer and dryer.

The area we call Bernal Heights was once the site of cow dairies and grazing pastures. One of the last great neighborhoods to be "discovered" in San Francisco Bernal is making the transition from a traditional blue-collar settlement to a hospitable enclave of artists, young families, and left-leaning political life. It owes its growing desirability to its exceptionally homey setting and inspiring city views.
Home to two great parks, this community is beloved by dog owners and hikers alike.
The largest park, called Bernal Heights, occupies the crest of the hill and is a breezy respite for area residents who enjoy fresh air and pristine views of downtown San Francisco and the bay. The second, Precita Park resides at the bottom of Bernal and is a favorite for young children and families, who find the playground and expansive lawns to be a perfect afternoon setting.
Any visitor must make their way along Bernal's cozy retail main street, Cortland Avenue. There you'll find a splendid blend of local bookshops, one-of-a-kind boutiques, and delicious coffee shops. Some exceptional ethnic food, from French to Nepalese, can be found along this notable stretch, representing an array of eateries to delight the lucky food lovers who sauntering by.
Some favorite drinking establishments are also at your disposal. El Rio, with its steady lineup of extraordinary musical acts, Wild Side West with its fantastic fireplace, plus the country and blues music venue Skip's Tavern, are all sure to envigorate. MUNI bus service out of Bernal toward downtown is easy to find on Mission street, which delineates the western edge of Bernal. You are also walking distance from the BART at 24th and Mission.
