On a wide lot facing Buena Vista Park, this classic residence pays homage to its distinguished circa 1912 heritage. The handsome faÃ§ade borrowing elements from European design features fluted columns and pilasters with Doric capitals. From the entrance, a sense of volume permeates the design with spacious public rooms easily flowing around a beautifully detailed center staircase and a towering skylight. Espresso-hued hardwood flooring is complemented by a perfectly selected color palette and crisp white millwork inside and out. Extensive crown moldings, classically carved white balustrades, and stained glass panels are reminders of the home’s vintage character while the remodeled kitchen, updated bathrooms, and touches of new period style lighting add consummate modern functionality. The home comprises 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths spanning three levels. The traditionally arranged floor plan includes four upstairs bedrooms and two full baths plus lower-level quarters, ideal for guests or extended family, with a bedroom, two flexible-use rooms, and a full bath.
From its elevated corner lot, the home has views reaching out to the Pacific Ocean as well as the verdant foliage of 37-acre Buena Vista Park located directly across the street. Deemed the oldest official park in San Francisco, miles of hiking trails reach elevations with sweeping views across the City while tennis courts and a baseball field provide added recreation close by. And just one-half mile away, Golden Gate Park offers myriad venues for arts and recreation. With a “paradise” Walk Score of 91, the home’s location in Buena Vista/Ashbury Heights also puts shopping, dining, and cafes just two blocks away.
