A quiet retreat, in the heart of the city offers all that is appealing about old San Francisco with the amenities of the new. Let the enchanting firebrick staircase guide you through rich gardens and mature plantings to this “Tales of the City” free standing home. Uniquely tucked into the hillside and towering above the tree line, this special home offers tremendous light, privacy and smashing San Francisco skyline views!
San Francisco is a one of a kind city and this home reflects that uniqueness. Enter to be welcomed by a towering two story entry with tons of light and warmth from multiple windows and French doors trimmed in natural woodwork and illuminated by a stunning wood slat chandelier.
Turn the corner and be mesmerized by the view. From an ample-sized dining area that opens into the kitchen and living room, everywhere you look you experience stunning vistas and abundant natural light. The updated kitchen with marble countertops that cascade into a waterfall edge is spacious and bright. Look out over the kitchen sink to verdant gardens and a giant Monterey Cypress. While cooking, look through to the oversized picture window showcasing the impressive city skyline. Relax in the high ceiling living room and take in the breathtaking views of the city skyline, Bay Bridge, Berkeley Hills and the greenery. The antique marble gas-burning fireplace adds elegance and cozy warmth on those cool nights and cold rainy days.
At the back of the main level are two of the home’s bedrooms, both with direct access to the terraced garden, complete with two fountains offering soothing sounds to lull you to sleep. Completing this level are two sizable closets and a convenient stackable full sized washer and dryer.
Ascend the main staircase to the top level, but before entering the refuge of the master suite, take in the impressively large hardwood deck with sensational views of the city skyline. Since the home is situated below the fog line, this remarkable deck offers additional living space for daily use or for entertaining. The view is a natural masterpiece. Who wouldn’t be impressed?
The spacious master bedroom has vaulted ceilings and a free standing wood-burning fireplace which can create a cozy evening to enjoy the city skyline through the large sliding glass doors. For those occasional warm days, the master suite is equipped with its own air conditioning unit, a unique feature for San Francisco! The adjoining master bath is impressively large with a separate shower and large soaking tub — pure luxury. Two large closets finish off the master suite.
The lower level of the home features a fully equipped studio guest suite (in-law) with a separate entrance. The space features a large picture window for amazing light and includes its own kitchen, full bath, large walk-in closet and a washer/dryer combination.
The location of this home is amazing. It’s just a short walk to shops, restaurants and public transportation but far enough to allow for super easy street parking, a rarity in San Francisco and a sure hit for your guests!
