174-176 Picnic Ave, San Rafael, CA 94901
174 Picnic Avenue
176 Picnic Ave exudes everything wonderful about living in San Rafael. This 1930's bungalow-styled home sits on a large street-to-street lot in the popular and friendly neighborhood that some call Picnic Valley. The location is close to vibrant downtown San Rafael with its many restaurants, shops, theater and farmer's market AND is a stone's throw to Laurel Dell Elementary and Davidson Middle School. But what's best about this home is that it features a LEGAL 1bd/1ba unit! The primary space is a charming 3bd/2ba home with 2 bedrooms on the main level and a delightful 3rd bedroom accessed by stairs and detailed with 30ft windows overlooking the mature garden and level yard below. The additional space below the 3rd bedroom offers a built-in desk creating a work-at-home opportunity. An open floor plan includes a cozy fireplace and adjacent large kitchen with stainless appliances. Although attached to the main home, the legal unit #174 features a private front patio which creates a buffer between the two spaces. The huge almost level lot is an ideal template to create your own outdoor paradise and is large enough to possibly add an ADU. This immaculate move-in ready home can be enjoyed as-is now or enjoy putting your creative genious to work and upgrade over time.
