This classic Victorian home near Mission Dolores Park has been restored and augmented for exceptional modern living. Timeless details such as white oak doors and herringbone-patterned floors meet striking contemporary elements, including a dramatic steel staircase, Fleetwood windows and glass doors, handsome aluminum accents, and top-tier appliances and fixtures.
Each of the four bedrooms has an en suite bath, all of which feature marble and teak surfaces and fixtures from Boffi, Grohe, and Toto. Light floods nearly every space; and living walls, alcoves, and an indoor-outdoor atrium with towering bamboo add welcome touches of greenery. Porro closets provide plentiful storage space throughout. An elevator accesses four of the home’s five levels.
The main floor comprises a living area with a striking statement wall of walnut and a custom 72-inch gas fireplace. The open dining area offers a built-in buffet and flows effortlessly to a kitchen with a spacious marble-accented island, dual ovens, a six-burner gas cooktop, and fittings by Boffi and Bulthaup. A full wall of sliding glass doors looks across a light-flooded atrium toward an inviting skylit family room.
Of the two guest bedrooms, one could easily serve as an auxiliary master suite. Tucked beneath the pitched roof on the uppermost level is a distinctive light-filled master suite that features a living area with a gas fireplace, a bath with dual rain showers, abundant storage, a private deck, and partial views of the city skyline.
The serene south-facing garden includes an outdoor kitchen, fire table, spa, and tasteful landscaping.
