    Located in the prestigious Presidio Heights neighborhood, this classic San Francisco home was designed by renowned architect Sidney B. Newsom and extensively renovated in 1999 with complete respect for its circa 1909 heritage. Newsom has many fine homes to his credit including 1 Presidio Terrace and 2698 Pacific Avenue. Beginning with the rich details of the home’s distinguished Arts and Crafts architecture – including fine hardwood floors, stunning leaded glass windows, and refined millwork – an array of luxurious elements have been seamlessly integrated for consummate modern comfort. At the heart is a welcoming reception parlor that introduces the original architectural details. From here, the main living areas extend – a grand living room with fireplace, inviting dining room ideal as a family room as well, and an intimate library nook. Catering it all is a masterfully remodeled kitchen certain to please the most demanding chef with its commercial-quality range, which stands ready for epicurean feasts, limestone countertops, and designated bar or butler’s area. A separate breakfast area is perfect for casual meals while overlooking the greenery of the tranquil rear garden/patio.

    The transformation continues on the upper two levels where 5 bedrooms plus an office, 4 full baths, and a half-bath provide luxurious accommodations for family members or guests. Bathrooms are beautifully appointed with quality finishes and fireplaces enhance the ambiance in two of the bedrooms including the master quarters. A top-floor family room/recreation room adds flexibility for media, play, or entertaining needs. Augmenting all this is a private walkout garden/patio for fresh-air enjoyment and a two-car tandem garage for the ultimate convenience in city living. And, just blocks-away, the tranquil green belts of The Presidio, Julius Kahn Playground, and upscale shopping and dining await.
