The Essence of Bernal Heights. 367 Prentiss Street.

September 28, 2021

Come tour this fine Bernal home with lots of potential!

This home is a great example of the peaked roof Victorian cottage that exemplifies a bygone era. At one time, hundreds of these homes dotted the hills of Bernal providing a wonderful scenic backdrop for this predominantly blue-collar neighborhood. Today the hills, the winding streets, the views, the sunny weather, and the diversity all remain. While many homes have been expanded and enhanced, 367 Prentiss retains the true essence of Bernal Victorian cottage architecture.
