New to the market in San Francisco is a renovated cottage in Potrero Hill, a quiet neighborhood coveted for its sunnier microclimate and skyline views. Built in 1991, the residence was originally designed by local architect Jim Jennings for photographer John Vaughan. The handsome, wood shingle–clad home has since been updated to offer numerous built-ins, a commercial-grade kitchen, and a detached backyard studio.
Unfolding from the front toward a rear garden, the main house features a simple layout of two large rooms—each with 12-foot pitched ceilings—and a rectangular primary suite extending from one side. The first room offers a sunlit living area with wrap-around shelving, while the adjacent second room features an impressive chef’s kitchen, dining area, and built-in desk. Throughout the home, board-and-batten wood paneling complements exposed rafters and wide-plank hardwood floors.
Outside, the structure is nestled between lush gardens on three sides and offers a shady, pergola-topped patio and detached studio, which provides a second bedroom. The property is also shaded by a beautiful magnolia tree and a pair of towering redwood trees. Perhaps most desirable, though, is the location within walking distance of many popular cafes and shops.
