This charming 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in the coveted Lakeside neighborhood has been updated to make it move-in ready, yet it retains its mid-century charm.

Lakeside playground is at the end of the block, with a tennis court, baseball diamond and basketball courts, and the Merced branch of the public library is across the street.
215 Stonecrest is conveniently located to Stonestown Mall with Trader Joes, West Portal Village, excellent schools, public transportation and easy access to freeways.
215 StonecrestDrive is within the Lakeside Property Owners Association. The LakesidePOA.org website says: "Lakeside is described by real estate agents as 'tucked between San Francisco State University and Junipero Serra Boulevard. A clean neighborhood, characterized by white picket fences, window shutters and rose gardens.'
We residents know it as a beautiful, quiet, unique, small neighborhood of San Francisco that few others know about. Built by the Icelandic immigrant Stoneson brothers beginning in the late 1930's, the Lakeside development was conceived as a strip of immaculate homes served by a small commercial section, Lakeside Village. Both brothers constructed personal mansions for themselves within the development. Their vision largely survives to this day. Lakeside remains a residential neighborhood of well-maintained, original and modified homes with some beautiful gardens, white picket fences, and tidy tree-lined streets with period street lights.
The LPOA works to enhance and maintain the unique character of the Lakeside neighborhood and address issues of concern to its members the property owners and residents."
Lakeside residents can take advantage of their close proximity to the beach and several well-groomed golf courses, including to the world renowned Olympic Club Golf Course, the San Francisco Golf Course, & Harding Park Golf Course, which all surround San Francisco’s largest lake, Lake Merced. Even closer is the charming playground at the end of Stonecrest Drive which has a children's play area, 2 basketball courts, a tennis court and a baseball diamond. And the Merced branch of the public library is right across the street from 215 Stonecrest.
This lovely area is also the home to San Francisco State University, Mercy High School, and Lowell High School. In addition, City College’s Ocean Campus lies just east of Lakeside homes, and offers a great opportunity for higher learning at reasonable costs to students.
