Grand Pacific Heights Home on a Coveted Flat Block between Lafayette & Alta Plaza Parks

2422 Buchanan Street


Welcome to 2422 Buchanan.  First appearing in 1895 city directories, this High-Peaked Colonial Revival home hosts romantic architectural details balanced with infrastructure and layout that reflect 21st Century preferences. This modernized six bedroom home combines voluminous entertaining spaces drenched in natural light with the elegance, scale, materials & craftsmanship of a true Victorian-era residence.

The home begins on the enclosed front vestibule, where graceful leaded glass panels highlight an airy motif that will be repeated throughout the five-level home, while the vibrant mosaic floor, original to the residence, welcomes visitors and evokes the opulence of the construction. Inside, the main foyer is adorned with hand-crafted Corinthian columns, and leads to the formal, yet inviting, living room. Characterized by harmonious symmetry, this room is anchored by bay windows adorned with elegant leaded-glass panels.  Adjacent, the grand dining room impresses with 11-foot coffered ceilings, a gas fireplace, original built-in cabinetry and oversized pocket doors. Opened, the pocket doors reveal and unite the dining room with a large, modern kitchen with an island of new quartz countertops, leaded glass cabinets, and Viking stove, transforming the space into a large-scale entertaining area. A breakfast nook overlooks the rear garden and patio, planted with espaliered fruit trees, fig, climbing roses and bougainvillea.

On the second floor, the spacious primary suite occupies one-half of the second level – and is an apartment in itself –  with fireplace, sitting area, large adjacent dressing room (or additional bedroom) and modern bath with dual vanities. Two large guest bedrooms, an additional full bath and newly-installed laundry center complete this level.

The third level reveals an impressive oversized guest bedroom with seating area,  highlighted by a graceful arched window designed in the leaded glass motif found throughout the home. This bedroom contains two hidden passageways to another level of the home, designed as play spaces for the children of previous owners. Can you find them?  At the opposite end of this floor, a professionally designed media room with large screen TV, recessed wall and ceiling speakers, motorized shades and snack bar with built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator can be found. Full length glass doors off the media room open to a walk-out terrace with panoramic views of the neighborhood. An additional guest bedroom and a highly designed full bath are also on this floor.

A spiral staircase leads to the pent level, the fourth floor of this stellar home. This secluded space measures 600+ sq.ft. – the perfect oasis for a home office, music or game room, with skylights, and a Palladian window providing abundant light and views of Alta Plaza Park and the Bay.  A cleverly designed hatch concealed in the floor is used to move large items up to this level.

On the lowest level of the home, recreation continues with a large family room, powder room and access door to the patio and garden. Another Narnia-inspired secret passageway is found on this level, connecting the family room with the 375-bottle wine cellar. A large storage room and additional laundry center are found on this level as well as the 2-car garage.

Pacific Heights has long been San Francisco’s most notable neighborhood boasting tree lined streets occupied by a diverse collection of architecturally significant homes. Neighborhood retail and dining corridors define the quiet luxury that has always been central to the California lifestyle. Alta Plaza and Lafayette Parks - both beloved by Pacific Heights residents for their verdant walking paths and showstopping city views -  are also within a short and picturesque stroll.
