LIGHT-FILLED, RUSSIAN HILL VIEW HOME & ENGLISH GARDEN

2430 Hyde Street - San Francisco , CA


2430 Hyde Street
Center stage atop the Francisco Reservoir on Russian Hill, 2430 Hyde is a familiar façade to all who travel the Hyde Street Hill by foot or cable car.

Featuring picturesque views of the North Bay, Golden Gate Bridge and the tree-lined, surrounding neighborhood, 2430 Hyde was extensively renovated under the guidance of celebrated interior designer Phillip J. Meyer to provide sophisticated infrastructure and design enhancements to capture the architectural spirit of the period in which it was built.

Welcome to one of Russian Hill’s most glorious homes.

The distinctly neo-gothic façade is positioned on a 47-foot wide lot, embellished by mature magnolia and sycamore trees. Steps of flagstone lead to a wrought iron and glass-front door with keyless entry. Inside, the entrance foyer features black & white marble with an inlaid trefoil centerpiece, stately vaulted-arch ceiling and curving staircase. An adjacent living room features a box-beam ceiling and windows offering views of Hyde Street, the Reservoir, the Golden Gate Bridge and beyond. The room’s focal point – a carved French limestone fireplace – faces arched French doors that open to a park-like, bucolic garden designed by noted landscape architect, Lockwood de Forest, Jr. The garden is a serene combination of classic landscaping: vintage box wood shrubs, orange, lemon and maple trees, hydrangea, roses, wisteria, and rich grasses. Adjacent to a statuesque water feature, a group of flagstone pavers create an ideal environment for an outdoor living room.

Enjoying direct access to the garden is a cook’s kitchen with top-line appliances and a large center island. The kitchen is imbued with substantial light and garden views from several large pivoting windows.

Passing through a swinging door one arrives at a gracefully proportioned formal dining room with views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

At the opposite end of the kitchen, a mud-room leads to a bedroom, bath and downstairs staircase.

The three bedrooms comprising the upstairs level are accessed by elevator or a gracious, rounded stairway featuring six tall, arched windows showcasing the garden.

Atop the upstairs landing is the four-chambered master suite boasting a large bedroom, dressing area, Venetian plaster and marble-clad bathroom and an intimate library/retreat. Extensive cabinetry and built-in storage abound. Upholstered window benches showcase exceptional views of the Bay & Golden Gate Bridge.

Also on this level are two en-suite bedrooms, one accessed through the other. Each bedroom features large pivoting windows that open to the garden below.

On the lower level, adjacent to laundry appliances is a voluminous and secured storage room, complete with shelves and racks for boxed and hanging wardrobe. The large and expanded garage accommodates two to four cars, provides a tradesmen staircase to the garden and includes a high-ceilinged, climate-controlled wine cellar.

Recently restored to the character of its 1936 heyday, 2430 Hyde enjoys 21st Century all-house infrastructure such as sophisticated lighting, media, sound, security, climate control and Internet. Following its extensive renovation, the house was editorially featured in the publication California Home + Design and participated in the Junior League Home Tour.

Ideally located just steps from the stately mansions of Francisco Street, the Norwegian Church, Sterling Park, Alice Marble Tennis Courts and the City’s northern waterfront, 2430 Hyde Street is a short distance from the myriad shops and restaurants of Polk Street, Hyde Street and North Beach.
