Enjoying a superb Pacific Heights address on a coveted flat block, this classic San Francisco residence proudly takes its place alongside its equally prestigious neighbors. Extending approximately 5,000 sq. ft. on three levels, this elegant and beautifully detailed circa 1926 home has been masterfully renovated and exquisitely remodeled throughout with an appreciative eye toward maintaining architectural integrity. Generous expanses of true divided light windows, many with Palladian arches, create a welcoming light-filled ambiance that is enhanced by generous ceiling heights and well-located skylights. Walls with subtle custom European finishes and others with saturated color are all trimmed with picture frame moldings and elaborately carved ceiling detail. Heritage elements such as glass and brass doorknobs, carved stone fireplace mantelpieces, and beautiful oak floors throughout the entire home impart timeless sophistication while luxuriously appointed bathrooms, a fabulous chef's kitchen with signature La Cornue range, and built-in speakers infuse modern-day comfort.
An elegant receiving area anchors the main level from which the traditional formal rooms extend to create a wonderfully open expanse. Beyond, an inviting family room connects with the chef's kitchen and opens to a wrap-around deck and separate dining deck for the quintessential indoor/outdoor California lifestyle. Complementing the day-to-day living space is a tremendous lower-level recreation room that doubles as a media center and seamlessly extends to a rear terrace and artificial turf lawn. The home's 5 bedrooms (6 bedrooms if you include the main level office, which has a closet and direct bathroom access) and 5.5 bathrooms, arranged over the three levels, are each light-filled respites from the cares of the day - particularly the romantic primary suite with fireplace and luxurious marble bath with two showers and relaxing tub. Adding functionality for today's style of living, one of the second floor bedrooms has been converted to a well-equipped office with significant built-ins however with light remodeling may once again become the fourth bedroom on this level.
This Pacific Heights address, which features a approximately 50-foot, extra-wide lot on a tree-lined street, also benefits from being just blocks away from boutique shopping and fine dining, highly regarded private schools, public transportation to downtown, as well as the lush green setting of Alta Plaza Park with its tennis courts and state-of-the art playground - the ultimate setting for distinguished City living.
