8 16th Avenue is 1 of 21 homes that borders on the Presidio on a North of Lake cul-de-sac. A jewel along the Lake Street corridor, this beautifully updated residence offers one of the absolute best locations in San Francisco situated on the edge of the 1,500-acre Presidio. The home was built and updated to weave everyday life together with the Presidio. The impressive façade, elevated at the street’s end, seamlessly blends its circa 1912 heritage with modern elegance, featuring a glass-lined front terrace that offers unobstructed views and serves as one of three spectacular outdoor living spaces. Inside, preserved period details include richly hued wainscot paneling, layers of crown moldings, and gleaming hardwood floors with inlaid feature strips and intricate corner details. New Carrara marble counters in the remodeled kitchen, and updated bathrooms add designer appeal. Fully retractable glass paned doors on two walls in the eat-in kitchen, open the space without corner obstruction to a spacious deck and garden with mature fruit trees overlooking the Presidio – an exceptional private space for indoor/outdoor living.
Spanning three levels, plus stairs to the rooftop with picturesque views over the Presidio and reaching to the Ocean, this home has 4 spacious bedrooms (plus a flex room which could easily be a fifth bedroom), a fully wood-paneled library with impressive book storage and high ceilings, and a gym on the bottom level that overlooks the Presidio. Health and wellness are prioritized with amenities like a steam shower in the primary suite and a large spa and cedar-lined shower in a sheltered outdoor space overlooking the Presidio.
The neighborhood is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts with easy access to the Presidio, Baker Beach and Lands End Trail. Lake Street has a “slow street” designation that encourages walking, running, and biking on low-traffic routes, fostering a sense of community among neighbors. Just blocks away are the convenience of shops, restaurants, and cafes on California and Clement Streets, plus this location provides easy access to destinations throughout the city (Chestnut Street is 5 min away via Park Presidio), as well as Marin County, the Peninsula, and Silicon Valley.
