This stunning home in the sought-after Gold Coast neighborhood of Pacific Heights was designed by the renowned architectural firm, Willis Polk & Co., noted for the design of the Palace of Fine Arts as well as many historically significant properties in The City. Exuding a grand presence on one of the most desirable streets in San Francisco, the residence catches the eye with its timeless brick façade, signature slate roof, and deep portico entry. Completed in 1927, the home has been well maintained throughout its history. The five-level floor plan is comprised of a series of formal rooms, including the living room, dining room and library, on the main level, a lower level with an expansive gourmet kitchen, a bottom-level two bedroom apartment, plus two levels of bedrooms above. Adding to the appeal is a fabulous garden courtyard plus a top-level deck with spa as well as breath taking views from the Golden Gate Bridge, across Alcatraz and to Russian Hill.
Library, garden courtyard, panoramic views, fireplaces, slate roof.
