Today I previewed a compound Oasis in the heart of San Francisco on Divisadero. I was frankly flabbergasted at the amazing modern meets Storybook Victorian home that was behind the ornate well cared for visage. Not on the market presently, though it will be any moment now, so I’m giving you the first glimpse.
Sitting on a double lot gives it the feeling of being a compound. It’s garden setting and sophistication make it an oasis. The main home on 2 levels have 3 beds and 2.5 baths, with a master suite with an additional office. An elegant spaciousness is made by the open vistas of this fabulous entertainment home. Throughout is the notable gleaming walnut radiant heat hardwood floors, marble fireplaces, ornate pillars, exposed brick and beams, stained glass, high cielings with modern touches and high end finishes. There is a deluxe sound system.
The chef’s kitchen features stainless counters and all of the extras you would expect including a sleek breakfast bar that seats a crowd. The master marble bath has a free standing soaking tub with outdoor deck access to lounge on 1 of the private decks after your bath. One bath features vintagelike beadboard and bath furniture and even of course, there is a modern powder room. All well thought out and impressive, providing class, elegance with modern touches and conveniences. This is truly a San Francisco home at its’ finest and most impressive. Did I mention the turret room…it’s round of course.
Downstairs is an entirely different and equally impressive living level, with a complete au pair apartment with vintage stove, a charming art studio with exposed brick with the right kind of light and an additional bonus/media room that continue the relaxed elegance of the upper floors. It is a breath of fresh air.
Entertain outdoors from 3 modern decks that bring the outside inside, 1 nestled in the mature charming garden, replete with 8 person jacuzzi, built in barbecue and an another deck featuring an outdoor shower. There is a roomy car garage with parking for 2 plus a second area in the rear of the home which could accomodate several more cars to provide you with room for your visitors. Located on a busy thoroughfare, the home is set back from the street and quiet inside.
I’m passing this info along pre-emptively, to my most discerning buyers as one of a kind for the artistic, informed & social homeowner’s who appreciate the best of San Francisco’s modern meets historical tradition. Offered for $3,800,000. this home is a treasure to behold for the very lucky new owner. Call quickly to book a private showing….before the crowds. 415.321.7076
