About the Property

Welcome to Havenscourt Homestead! This former urban homestead was featured in the book Backyard Roots and the SF Chronicle as an example of sustainable living on a 4,000 sq ft lot in the city. This was a fully functioning urban farm complete with bees, goats, chickens, and more. A favorite on the Bay Friendly Garden Tour for it's vegetable gardens and drought tolerant landscaping. Enjoy the raised bed gardens (including established asparagus!), and many fruit trees including cherry, nectarine, apricot, and pear. Truly a special home with a rich history (and soil) ready for it's next chapter~
