Luxury Living and Entertaining on Francisco

 

Behind this handsome 1933 façade is a reimagined residence, separate (legal) guest suite and a serene flat yard. The residence delivers luxurious daily living and dynamic entertaining alike.  Lively dinner parties begin in the high-end kitchen, flow into the stylish formal dining room, and culminate in front of the toasty fireplace in the fabulous family room.  For large gatherings, the expansive media/entertaining room and adjacent multi-use room upstairs is the spot.  High vaulted ceilings, a contemporary fireplace, and bay windows revealing the city lights set a wonderful scene for tasting Bordeaux’s and mingling with guests.  For barbecues and dining under the stars is the elegantly designed deck overlooking the meticulous and vibrant garden below. Any event the owner desires, this home fulfills the need with its impressive, voluminous rooms spanning three levels.   

Main Level  The main level is open and social. The chef’s kitchen is equipped with top-of-line appliances: Thermador five-burner range, Sub-Zero fridge, wine fridge, and Miele oven and dishwasher. This space flows into the stylish formal dining room and further into the fabulous front living room, where a fireplace provides toasty ambiance at the end of a dinner. In the back of home are two well-appointed bedrooms—one with adjacent half bath and one with a full bath and spa tub, and exceptional California closets.  Both rooms flow onto the sunny back deck for seamless indoor-outdoor living.

Upper Level  For large gatherings and events, the dramatic media/entertaining room with high vaulted ceilings, contemporary fireplace, and wet bar is the spot.  Bay windows reveal the city lights and ceiling mounted-speakers add the ambiance, setting a wonderful scene for tasting Bordeaux’s and mingling with guests.  An adjacent and special multi-use room with built-in shelving adds to the space or could be used as an office/library or and additional bedroom with some reimagination.  This level features another bedroom and bathroom, laundry room with Miele washer and dryer, and the master suite, where spectacular views of greenery and colorful homes burst through the bay windows.  The master features a private balcony, automatic window shades, two closets, and a spa-like bathroom.

Lower Level  The expansive and very bright guest suite with a private entry occupies the ground level.  Its design is superb: rustic wood and stone floors, built-in cube shelving, a large closet, recessed lighting, ceiling-mounted speakers, backyard patio access, and a full bath with a steam shower. This is a legal unit and has never been rented out by the current owner. (Unit does not have a separate kitchen) A wine room/cellar and the extra-large garage with storage complete the level.    

Outdoor Eleganc  For barbecues and dining under the stars, the tastefully designed deck with a smooth rock surface and iron railing overlooking the vibrant and verdant garden is a special setting.  Truly a treat for the eyes and senses, the very sweet garden is delicately landscaped with myriad colorful flora around two seating areas, where settling into a novel is a peaceful reprieve.

Neighborhood


The Marina neighborhood of San Francisco is one of the most desirable districts in the city. With astounding views of the Golden Gate rising over the Marin Headlands, this is where the city and the bay come together. Life in the Marina implies life by the sea, with all the romance it evokes, giant exotic yachts, magnificent sunsets, and breathtaking parks. Lovers of the outdoors populate the many hiking and running trails which line the waterfront, taking in the sun drenched views and the wide open bucolic expanse of Marina Green. This magnificent park is in steady use by kite fliers, volleyball lovers, and frisbee experts alike. There are some high quality sports retailers nearby to help outfit the exercise minded residents. Just steps away you'll find the awe-inspiring Palace of Fine Arts, an exquisite garden and classic structure reminiscent of Roman Temples which was designed by Bernard Maybeck in 1915. Here you'll find a much needed oasis of serenity in an otherwise hectic city. The rotunda, powerful columns and introspective lagoon are a select location for wedding parties and an often repeated image for travel magazines. East of the Marina one finds a set of dock buildings, a former Army outpost, which have become central to the cultural life of the area, known as Fort Mason. It currently houses an extraordinary cultural arts center - full of galleries, dance performance spaces and a theater. A one-of-a-kind famers market resides here weekly, as does an annual food and wine festival that attracts thousands of foodees from all across the Bay. Nowhere in the city does waterfront life come together so perfectly with vibrant city culture and world-class restaurants. Don't miss the inspiring Marina District.
