    Located in Presidio Heights, one of San Francisco’s most prestigious neighborhoods, this stunning home is bestowed with the refined grace and character that comes only through the passage of time. Today, the home has been extensively remodeled with complete respect for its early 20th century heritage and an eye toward maintaining architectural integrity. Introducing the classic Edwardian style is a crisp palette of taupe and soft white that conveys instant character and vintage appeal. An arched portico with marble clad walls and a series of fluted columns gives way to the foyer and reception parlor where rich expanses of original woodwork, leaded and beveled glass, and oak flooring typify the home’s finely crafted Old World details. Adding consummate modern comfort and luxury to the sophisticated ambiance are carefully selected light fixtures, artfully concealed skylights, and the lavish use of designer stones and mosaic patterns that combine in works of art.

    Congenial gathering points abound throughout the three levels ranging from the gracious formality of the living room to the professionally equipped kitchen that stands ready for creating gourmet meals while enjoying the company of friends in the adjacent and inviting family room. Downstairs, movie nights at home come to life in the theatre where a projection system and surround sound capabilities create the true cinema experience. For more quiet times, an upstairs library and fully customized office provide the perfect spot for studying, reading, or work-at-home.

    Providing generous personal havens for everyone, the home’s four bedrooms are traditionally arranged with three bedrooms on the upper level, highlighted by the master retreat with customized walk-in closet, second closet, and a resort-worthy granite and marble bathroom with steam shower-for-two. An additional bedroom suite on the lower level is perfect for guests or an au pair. Adding luxurious finishing touches for the ultimate in comfort and well-being are a large fitness center, temperature-controlled wine cellar, plus behind-the-scenes wiring for full Internet connectivity. Satisfying the California ideal of outdoor living, a welcoming rear deck and garden with built-in barbecue center provide the perfect setting for al fresco entertaining surrounded by fragrant and colorful perimeter gardens. Augmenting it all is the property’s minutes-away proximity to the tranquil green belts of The Presidio, Julius Kahn Playground, upscale shopping and dining, plus effortless access to highways that put the greater Bay Area within easy reach.
