Rear deck, exterior.
This handsome Queen Anne, one of three identical homes built in 1890 by Cornelius Murphy, is located on a lovely quiet street just a half block south of Golden Gate Park's Panhandle.
This is a classic turreted Queen Anne with a wonderful peaked roof portico supported on clustered colonettes. The first floor hexagonal bay and the second floor octagonal bay are topped with a steep faceted cap. The play of rustic, shingles, panels, and the bays create a very animated facade, so characteristic of the QA style in this city.
There is a handsome bead board entryway with the original double doors. Inside is a large entry hall, double parlors with fireplace and bookcases, wainscoted formal dining room, and a remodeled kitchen. Upstairs are four large bedrooms and a full bath, with rear stairs down to the kitchen.
The kitchen is large, bright, and has been tastefully redone with white custom glass-doored cabinets, white marble tops, a Wolf range, large center island, and two sinks. It is designed for serious cooking and has been featured on Ultimate Kitchens on the Food Channel. There is a large family space and breakfast area with built-in banquet, which opens to a large west deck that overlooks a lovely landscaped yard with mature trees.
The scale and architectural detailing throughout the first floor is extraordinary. Most of the original detailing is intact, including spectacular plasterwork, a beautiful mahogany banister system, and elaborate moldings and medallions. The entire house is very bright and open with a good floor plan and 11 foot ceilings on the main floor. There is good headroom and storage in the full basement and garage. Systems have been upgraded with zoned heating (two new furnaces), new electric service (125 amp main), copper supply plumbing, and anchor bolting. The foundation is concrete.
Homes of this size and architectural integrity rarely come on the market. This is an ideal family house or for a sophisticated buyer.
The Haight Ashbury is a desirable neighborhood known for its handsome architecture, proximity to Golden Gate Park, and the wonderful variety of shops and restaurants on nearby Haight Street.
