Two beds + 1 full bath on the main level plus a spacious living area with cozy fireplace. Basement has a separate entrance, 3/4 bath and kitchenette. New roof, windows, stainless appliances in the last 5 years. Well cared for landscaping and a meditation corner will help you find solace in your outdoor space. Close to UPS, Jefferson Park, Proctor and 6th!


“I’ll probably miss the mornings when I get to watch the birds come to visit. The smaller ones tend to eat and ‘run’ while the larger ones will stay for a quick ‘bath’ in the front fountain.”

“For most of my days here, I’ve enjoyed daily walks around the UPS campus. Other than this year, I’d attend the indoor concerts during the school year and go to an occasional football game on Saturdays. Other than the closeness of UPS, there’s the Saturday Farmers Market or the easy walk to shopping at Safeway or Metropolitan Market. It’s nice to know that I can walk to Proctor at any time day or night - and feel safe.”

“There are several restaurants nearby, but for me there’s only one - East West Cafe. The Panang curry is my standby (with red rice). When family is in town, I’m celebrating a special occasion or just want to impress someone, I always head to East West for the always fresh Thai meal.”

“The most conspicuous flowering tree is the double flowering Kwanzan cherry which is located on the easement. When in flower, it joins dozens of other flowering cherry’s that line North Proctor Street for two weeks every spring. There are copious other flowering perennials on the property and a list will be provided for viewing after listing.”
