Pacific Heights Contemporary Chic
Situated on a coveted block in Pacific Heights, this home offers timeless style and sophistication. Built originally in 1906, the home was meticulously renovated from the ground up in 2012 and just completed a brilliant refresh with a lighter palette and designer finishes. The home consists of five bedrooms, five- and one-half baths, garage with interior access, and an elevator. Details include white oak hardwood floors, generous entertainment rooms, zoned radiant floor heating, and outdoor spaces on every level. Located 2 flat blocks to Fillmore Street and positioned between Alta Plaza Park and Lafayette Park, this location enables an extraordinary lifestyle. Several of the best private schools are within walking distance.
A gracious foyer with rich walnut paneling and a focal art niche introduce the home. On the main floor are the public spaces which include the elegant living room with a dramatic, marble-faced fireplace flanked by floating shelves, and a sunny, south-facing bay window overlooking the surrounding neighborhood. A tranquil, gallery-style space adjacent to the skylit stair hall leads to the formal dining room. A bar is neatly concealed behind rich wood paneling. At the rear is the heart of the home: the large great room consisting of the striking, Calacatta marble kitchen, a casual dining space with fireplace, and the family room. The kitchen has been thoughtfully designed with a 6-burner gas range, two dishwashers, and substantial counter seating. The family room enjoys morning and afternoon sun from windows on two sides; the third side is a glass ‘Nana Wall’ which opens to a walk-out garden patio perfectly suited for alfresco dining and relaxation. The patio with firepit is surrounded by mature landscaping and includes a landscaped, side garden area for barbequing. Completing the first level of the home is a beautifully finished powder room making this level completely self-contained for grand scale entertaining.
The second level has four bedrooms and 3 baths. The spacious master suite features custom-fitted, dual walk-in closets and a luxurious en suite bath with double sinks, stall shower, and a soaking tub beneath the garden-view window. In the bedroom, a sliding glass wall opens to a tranquil deck thoughtfully landscaped for optimal privacy and restful outlooks. Down the hall are three cheery bedrooms: Two bedrooms share a full bath between them, and an additional full bath is off the central hall across from the walk-in linen closet.
The third level has dramatic, vaulted ceilings and is bathed in light from the large central skylight. A beautiful guest bedroom has a Nana door to a terrace overlooking the surrounding verdant gardens. A full bath off the hall is adjacent to the large laundry room. Completing this level is an enormous family room.
The lower level features a glass-fronted, conditioned wine cellar. With a full bath off the hall, the nearby media room may be used flexibly. The home gym is equipped with a jetted relaxation spa. Interior access to the one-car garage is on this level. A second car may park off street in the recessed area in front of the garage door. Elevator access is direct from the lower level with convenient access to every level of the home.
