Gorgeous Pacific Heights trophy home. Perfect for entertaining! Wonderful location just one block from the Gold Coast on a beautiful tree-lined street. This magnificent property was built in the early 1990s from the ground up, and has been immaculately maintained and improved over the years.
Enter through a street level gate and up the staircase to a front stone patio overlooking Vallejo Street with an elegant balustrade. Reaching the front door, you step inside an impressive entryway, with dramatic double-height vaulted ceilings, inlaid marble and wood floor, and a grand staircase with a copper bannister swirling around large windows. An elevator, accessible from all floors, lifts you to the main floor, with soaring ceilings and beautiful walnut flooring throughout. To the left is a stunning living room with a large fireplace and spectacular Corinthian columns framing a wall of windowed and arched French doors and Juliet Balconies. Flooded with natural light, this room affords beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay, Angel Island, the Palace of Fine Arts, and the Golden Gate Bridge. With an attached butler's pantry/wet bar area that leads to the kitchen, it is the perfect spot to entertain!
Towards the middle of the home is a lovely powder room, a coat closet, and a back staircase from the butler's pantry leading up to the bedrooms above. The large kitchen is at once impressive yet comfortable, with ample cabinetry, counter space, and storage, as well as top-of-the-line appliances including a SubZero refrigerator and wine refrigerator, a Miele dishwasher, Thermador wall oven, microwave, and warming drawer, a Viking range and hood, and a double stainless sink as well as a prep sink in the island. A pantry closet and a built-in pantry pullouts allow for additional storage, and the butler’s pantry which adjoins the living room offers a second dishwasher, a mini refrigerator, a sink, and more storage closets and cabinetry.
Through a high archway in the kitchen is the attached breakfast room/informal dining area, which is lit up by southern light through windowed French doors leading out to the garden. The entire doorway, including the overhead arch, can be closed off with built-in panels and doors to allow for an intimate atmosphere for a gathering in the dining and breakfast room, spilling out to the garden for alfresco dining. The adjoining formal dining room is truly spectacular. Papered in a gorgeous Zuber Paris Hindu fantasy design, and with soaring ceilings, a striking chandelier, built-in cabinetry, and double-paned windowed French doors framed by custom drapes and opening out to the backyard, this is the ideal spot for a lovely gathering. The back garden has a tiled patio for outdoor dining and steps lead up to a slightly raised landscaped area where antique stone frames the beautiful tile mosaic on the back garden wall. High lattice and stone walls provide privacy and add to the sense of your own personal oasis in the city.
Continuing to the top level up the grand staircase, lit from a large skylight overhead and paneled with subtle grass cloth wallpaper, one reaches the master suite. The master bedroom is flooded with light and very large, with a sitting area and a fireplace, all adjacent to a dramatic row of arched glass doors and windows facing breathtaking views of the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge! At the front of the room is access to a walk-in cedar-paneled closet and a marvelously spacious master bathroom, clad in white marble and brass fixtures, and complete with a soaking tub with claw feet, a stall shower, double sinks and vanities, and radiant heated floors. Off the bathroom is an additional, more private, walk-in closet, this one even larger, with cedar paneling, a hidden safe, and built-in shelving.
On the south end of this floor is a marble full bathroom with a shower over tub, and a very large bedroom which could also serve well as a family room or library. High windows overlook the garden and from this room (and the back staircase) one can access the ladder to the decked roof.
Two floors below you find a very large additional bedroom with seating area and built-ins, a marble bathroom with a shower over tub, a cedar-paneled storage closet and a large storage room. At the top of the stairs are gorgeous oak antique doors that cleverly conceal shelving. On the entrance level is one additional bedroom, bringing the total to four, and an ensuite marble bathroom with shower over tub. There is also a laundry closet with a washer/dryer and a sink, and additional cedar-paneled closets off the hallway.
The three-car garage has double sliding garage doors, and the elevator goes from the garage to all floors. The decked roof is accessible from the top floor and boasts spectacular views. In a fabulous location right in coveted Pacific Heights, you are blocks from great shopping, schools, transportation, and restaurants all in an incredibly quiet, residential setting.
