Summary: This bright, detached home is located on one of the best, flat Presidio Heights blocks and features verdant views from every room. Built in 1912 by San Francisco Architect, Frederick H. Meyer, the home was recently renovated with exquisite finishes throughout. The floor plan is ideal for entertaining and for today's lifestyle. Large-scaled, light-filled rooms flow seamlessly from the formal rooms through to the gourmet kitchen with adjacent family room which opens to the walk-out garden. There are 4 bedrooms each with a marble en suite bath, plus a guest powder room, spacious formal living room, separate formal dining room, and an eat-in kitchen with family room opening to the south facing patio and garden. Seismic Work: New concrete foundations and reinforcing steel were added for the new addition, and also shear walls and hold downs were added to key existing locations for extra bracing. 2-car tandem garage. 

Enter to the foyer with a lovely staircase and curved bannister.  On the front of the home, the beautifully scaled living room reflects a transitional style with a marble-faced fireplace, built-in bookcases above storage cabinets, and two sets of French doors that open to a fresh-air balcony.

Across the foyer is the gracious formal dining room with a delightful squared bay inset with French doors that bring additional light in this room.  The exquisitely renovated kitchen/family room is the heart of the home and features incredible light through 3 sunny exposures.  The east side showcases a delightful built-in banquette flanked by bookcases creating an informal dining area with verdant views of the adjacent gardens.  Striking, honed granite counters are the highlight of the gourmet kitchen equipped with a Viking professional 6-burner stove with grill, Thermador wall mounted double ovens, Bosch dishwasher, Miele refrigerator, Dacor microwave drawer, and U-Line wine refrigerator. 

The adjacent family room has garden views and glass doors that open to the patio and secluded, south-facing garden.

2nd Level:  West facing windows and skylights illuminate the upstairs landing and hallway.  The primary bedroom is situated at the back of the home, with lovely garden vistas. The en suite bath is exquisitely finished with Calacatta d’Oro tile, double sinks, a large, glass enclosed shower and heated floors inset with patterned mosaic tiles.  A south facing, garden view window and skylights bathe the room in natural light.  A large walk-in closet, additional fitted closets, and a garden view sitting area complete this tranquil retreat.

The middle bedroom has a beautiful en suite bath finished in statuary marble with subway tiles lining the glass-enclosed stall shower.

The front bedroom has a glimpse of the Golden Gate and may be an alternate primary suite with a walk-in closet and an en suite statuary marble bath with shower over tub and ceramic tiled surround.

Neighborhood


This delightful home is situated on a flat, tree-lined block in Presidio Heights, one of San Francisco’s premier neighborhoods. Presidio Heights is known for its ‘village’ appeal as residents enjoy easy access to the Presidio as well as to nearby shops – virtually everything needed on a daily basis is close by. The Presidio is a national historic landmark and part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area – one of the largest urban parks in the world. The area is bordered to the north by a mature forest of pine, cypress and eucalyptus trees which the army began planting in the Presidio in the 1880’s. Virtually every recreational alternative is possible in the park which includes nearby Julius Kahn Playground, perhaps the best-loved playground by children and their parents. The Presidio Golf course, club house, and Presidio Café are also nearby. Three blocks to the south are the celebrated Sacramento Street boutiques, antique stores, and restaurants including the highly acclaimed restaurant, Spruce.  Laurel Village is a block farther with its convenient mix of everyday grocery stores, shops, and cafés. This home boasts a 94 Walk Score® and is considered a “Walker’s Paradise – Daily errands do not require a car.”
