This handsome Eastlake style rowhouse, ca 1885, one of a pair, is located on an unusually attractive flat block filled with good examples of
Victorian architecture. This classic facade has an elaborate portico supported by a pair of Ionic columns, next to a large square bay with a pair of round headed windows, both topped by a bold bracketed cornice with applied decoration. The front stairs and robust bannisters have been skillfully and authentically rebuilt. This facade is unusually well preserved because it faces north and is shielded from the sun. The house is attached to its west side twin at two side bays.
The portico opens to an entry hall, then a large living room (with fireplace), dining room, remodeled kitchen, sunroom, three bedrooms (one with fireplace), office (with elaborate cabinetry that includes a washer and dryer) and two baths, all on the main level. Eight rooms total. The sunroom and office open to a large south deck overlooking a stone paved patio and small garden. Below is a large one bedroom, one bath apartment that opens to the rear patio. It had been rented for $3107/month and is now vacant. There is a large one car garage and two storage rooms. A second car can be parked at the curb across the driveway.
This lovely house has extraordinary interior and exterior original architectural detailing. The main floor has complex moldings, paneled doors, ceiling medallions, white marble fireplace surrounds, and oak floors. In addition there are stained glass windows, period ceiling fixtures, skylights and elaborate door hardware. Eleven foot plus ceilings give a heightened sense of space. This house is a rare piece of a vanishing city, the old San Francisco. It is an authentic treasure. No one is building these anymore.
This property is co-listed with Joel Goodrich, Coldwell Banker. 415-308-8184.
Lower Pacific Heights is a well known and highly desirable residential neighborhood in the north side of the city, with fine homes and proximity to good shopping on California and Sacramento Streets and the Laurel Shopping Center. There is good bus transportation on California St to the financial district and IT buses to Silicon Valley stop nearby. This location could hardly be better.
