Mediterranean Dream Home in Crocker Highlands

Welcome to 740 Calmar, a beautifully maintained Mediterranean style oasis perched just above the popular Lakeshore shopping district. This spacious three-bedroom, two and a half bath home offers privacy and modernity with lots of delightful period charm.

Lovingly remodeled,  this home has been recently refreshed with refinished hardwood floors, new interior paint, and an added main bedroom en-suite bath. Entering through the arched wooden door into the formal entryway, the warmth of the home is evident from the period fireplace anchoring the living room to the curve of the front stairway. The living room  is drenched in natural light from the nearly floor to ceiling windows that surround the room and open to the deck beyond. Through the central hall are a powder room and the inviting kitchen area complete with a sweet breakfast nook and additional built-ins. The kitchen is nothing short of impressive with custom cabinetry, marble island, stainless steel appliances, and integrated Miele coffee maker. It opens up to the formal dining room, a beautiful space with a modern chandelier and large bay windows overlooking the expansive deck and garden beyond.

Up the stairs is the main sanctuary with  dual closets, Juliette balcony and a new en-suite bathroom. Off the hall are the remaining two bedrooms, both with  private balcony access, and the second full bath. The shared bathroom offers a shower with a tub, dual vanity, and charming tile detailing.

Finishing off the home is a basement storage area, laundry hookups, and access to the multi level backyard. This outdoor space has a lot to offer with plenty of lovely spots for seating, an artificial turf level for play and a playground structure, all connected by stone steps and paths. A one-car garage and driveway complete the home.

In the perfect Crocker Highlands location, 740 Calmar is just a few blocks from the exciting Lakeshore Avenue restaurants and shops. With top-rated neighborhood schools and easy access to San Francisco and beyond, this home truly has it all.
