This superb Beaux Arts residence is situated on an elevated corner lot on a prime block in the heart of Presidio Heights, where stately mansions line the quiet, tree-studded streets. Originally built in 1902 (Architect: Newsom & Newsom), the home was rebuilt in 1928 (Architect: Bakewell & Weihe) and most recently underwent an extensive restoration in 2006, which included thoughtfully rearranging some rooms to create accommodations desired for 21st century living. All the while, the home’s original heritage and architectural integrity was not compromised, maintaining exquisite classic moldings and gleaming oak floors. In 2006, the home was a designer showcase for a charitable event and still displays a variety of artistry that gives unique definition to many rooms. Spanning four levels, the entire residence is infused with memories from extravagant entertaining to the intimacy of daily family living.
The delightfully modernized home includes flexible formal and everyday areas that are filled with natural light from full-height windows and French doors – some framing Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay views. Nowhere are the views more pronounced than on the upper-most level where a spacious recreation room is adjoined by a room wired for complete media enjoyment, also ideal as an office or bedroom. Other state-of-the-art amenities encompass the entire residence with a distributed audio system, CAT5 wiring, programmable lighting inside and out, and monitored security.
Providing the ultimate in personal accommodations was of utmost importance in the most recent renovation. Bathrooms were all modernized with sumptuous materials including spa-inspired appointments in the master retreat. Additional bedrooms plus a nursery were arranged with complete flexibility for family living, office, or staff needs. Guests, on the other hand, are now accommodated in their own quarters with the addition of a two-story guest house boasting equally impressive interiors.

The finishing touch is a vast outdoor terrace surrounded by magnificent gardens that weave together the formality of manicured boxwood with the park-like ambiance of fern and rose gardens. For the ultimate in city living, nearby Sacramento, California, and Fillmore streets offer eclectic upscale shopping and an array of excellent restaurants, while major commute routes and the many iconic landmarks of The City are just minutes away. The result is an exceptional living environment in one of San Francisco’s most prestigious neighborhoods.
