    Just below the summit of Russian Hill, this significant home makes a commanding first impression with its well-designed façade, period relief ornamentations, generous width, and red tile roof. Inside, the circa 1915 home boasts the romance of the era combined with just completed updates for a blend of old and new that enhances the entire home with a crisp, clean palette. Ionic columns plus ornate wall, ceiling, and crown moldings recall the home’s early heritage, three fireplaces enhance the ambiance, and floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive skylights enliven the setting. Al fresco enjoyment awaits outside on the spacious front terrace with privacy above the street.

    Spanning four levels above the garage, with two levels serviced by elevator, the home opens into a spacious and open foyer and a beautifully proportioned living room and formal dining room. While worthy of lavish entertaining, the home is equally suited to everyday living with its chef’s kitchen, light-filled breakfast area, and lower-level family/recreation room complete with built-in bar and customized wine cellar. And, for privacy and contemplation, a top-floor office/library offers partial City vistas reaching out to the Presidio, wonderful light, and roof access. The home’s personal accommodations comprise three bedrooms, highlighted by a beautifully appointed master suite with sitting room, fireplace and city views.

    This stately residence is located in the affluent neighborhood of Russian Hill, one of San Francisco’s most historically significant communities. This highly-coveted neighborhood combines urban elegance with charming cafes and shops on Polk, Hyde and Union streets, recreational activities at neighborhood parks, plus San Francisco cable cars and charming “stairway” streets. The Financial District and all the excitement of North Beach are also nearby – the ultimate setting for distinguished City living.
