A private oasis amidst an exciting and energetic urban environment, this just completed home in the heart of Noe Valley is only a block off 24th Street on one of the most desirable blocks of Hoffman Avenue.

Paul O’Kane created the custom steel and glass railings. Custom windows and doors were created by Loewen Windows of Canada.
