Ideally situated near the Lake Street corridor and the shops and cafes of Clement Street, this handsome 4-bedroom 2-bath Edwardian home with 3-car parking features a truly wonderful ambience. Bright and spacious, the three-level design welcomes uplifting illumination from tall windows and an east-west exposure. The refined interiors showcase finely crafted original details including hardwood flooring, elaborate millwork, high wainscoting, and deep baseboard and period moldings. The formal rooms, with intact pocket doors, are highlighted by a wall of leaded glass china cabinetry and a fireplace in the dining room. Technical niceties such as recessed halogen lighting and built-in stereo speakers enhance the home’s contemporary comfort. French doors off the kitchen open the family living areas to a deck that accesses an inviting private garden with mature plantings.
The home’s 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms include a generously sized lower-level suite with tilefinished bath (also a legal unit) entered from inside the house or separately from exterior stairs. The upper level offers gently coved ceilings and a skylight that illuminates the stairwell as well as the atrium below. On this level are three light-filled bedrooms, a tile-finished bathroom, and an office or den. (Potential exists to create a master suite).
In addition to being just moments from neighborhood shopping and dining options, the home is also minutes away from the flourishing natural settings of The Presidio and Mountain Lake Park. Easy access to California Street allows for a direct thoroughfare to the Financial District, and Golden Gate Park featuring the de Young Museum and the California Academy of Sciences is a short distance to the south. Highway 1 and the Golden Gate Bridge are only minutes away, putting all of the Bay Area within easy reach.
