Farewell Favorites: De Haro Street House and Garden

The property at 690 De Haro Street included a sanctuary for birds and butterflies, a footpath, and a hundred year-old house. Ineligible for landmark status because of past remodeling, the house and grounds were sold to developers. The old house was removed for construction of condominiums. The garden on the property, which is located next to a beautiful stairway, was mostly lost. A stroll up the adjoining hill, an unpaved block of 19th Street, reveals a novelty, #1919 19th, a private residence. Novel, unless you live at 2020 20th Street.
