Built in 1909, this grand and stately mansion in exclusive Presidio Terrace is perched on the crest of this coveted neighborhood, overlooking the rolling hillside and facing south with amazing sunlight across all three levels and a magical nighttime view of USF and St. Ignatius Church. With over 6000 sq. ft. (approx.) of interior space, the home boasts five bedrooms and five full and one-half bathrooms.
The front of the home features a winding brick walkway past a beautiful and level front garden and a gracious entrance with archway overhead. A large foyer in the entry leads to a wonderful family room on the right side, a powder room on the left, and a storage room or wine room. To the left of the entry is the perfect au-pair, in-law, or guest suite, complete with a bedroom, bathroom, sitting area, full kitchen, and a laundry room.
Up the main stairs, the home opens to a magnificent double parlor living room, with arched south-facing windows overlooking Presidio Terrace, palm trees and the hills of Twin Peaks and a marble window seat to admire the view. Beautiful period details throughout include moldings, decorative woodwork, arches, leaded glass accents, and high ceilings. The living room also features a large wood-burning fireplace with a marble surround, and built-in bookshelves. Adjacent to the living room is a library or sunroom, as well as an elegant formal dining room with a beamed ceiling. Spanning the full width of the house is an open eat-in chef’s kitchen, equipped with a breakfast bar, SubZero fridge and a host of other luxury appliances, a large center island, a built-in home office area, informal dining area, and windowed doors to a large paved driveway.
Upstairs are four sizeable bedroom suites and a wonderful library with a fireplace and a south-facing balcony. The master bedroom suite boasts a high vaulted ceiling, generous built-in drawers, a walk-in closet, a gas fireplace, a coffee station/wet bar, and a huge master marble bathroom with a double vanity, a separate tub, and a glass-enclosed shower.
The home is on a huge lot with a beautiful garden area on one side. There is a large patio at the back, accessed from the kitchen, and the house is surrounded by greenery on all sides, creating a bucolic and peaceful retreat. A two car garage up a private driveway completes the picture. This fantastic family home is in a coveted Presidio Heights location, within the Presidio Terrace Association gated cul-de-sac, and just blocks from the fabulous shopping and dining on Sacramento Street, Clement Street, and Laurel Village. The lot backs up to the prestigious Presidio Golf Course, with Julius Kahn playground and tennis courts nearby, as well as endless hiking and biking trails in the Presidio Reserve National Park.
