29 Buena Vista place is an enchanting 4BD/2BA Tudor-style home ideally located on a private cul-de-sac in Upper Rockridge — just moments from Chabot Elementary School, College Avenue, and Rockridge BART.

The moment you approach this remarkable 2,219 square foot storybook home, you are struck by how beautifully it is nestled into its charming front lawn and gardens, which have been meticulously planted and maintained and are complemented by exquisite natural stone retaining walls. As you make your way through a gate flanked by evergreens and down the flagstone path toward the inviting front door, you take in the architectural details that make this home distinctive, from its steeply pitched gable roof to its tall, paned windows, to its stucco exterior walls framed by exposed wood timbers.

The spell continues inside 29 Buena Vista, where the entryway showcases cottage-style exposed beams, hardwood floors, and a beautiful winding stairway. Here on the entry level, you will find a spacious living room with exposed beams, floor-to-ceiling French windows, a fireplace, and a large picture window through which you can take in the rear gardens and an incredible view of the Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge, and downtown San Francisco. Explore this level further and you will find a gracious dining room that leads to the home’s kitchen, which overlooks the lush front garden and features quartz countertops and gleaming stainless steel appliances, including a five-burner gas range. Also on this level is a lovely reading nook and west-facing, light-filled bedroom distinguished by large windows and crown moldings.

Ascend the winding staircase of this enchanting home and still more charms await: two spacious bedrooms with hardwood floors, including one with the home’s sweeping west-facing views. These two bedrooms share a hallway bath with Art Deco tile and both a tub and shower.

The lower level of 29 Buena Vista offers still more: a bedroom with hardwood floors features windows that look out onto the home’s patio is paired with a hallway bath with a tiled shower. Also on this level you will find a spacious storage area, a laundry area, and a garage that could function well as a workshop.

Exploration of 29 Buena Vista’s rear yard reveals a redwood deck and paver patio, ideal for outdoor entertaining, and still more yard and gardens that have been lovingly planted and tended. The gardens at this home are framed by mature trees including lemon, kumquat, plum, fern pine, Leland cypress, rhododendrons, birch, oak and cedar. The garden also includes raised vegetable beds.
