Elegant and spacious full-floor, house-like condominium in the prestigious Presidio Heights neighborhood. This stately home presents a traditional brick façade and a beautiful mature tree shading the front sidewalk. A private entrance to the right opens to a large and inviting foyer, which displays the fabulous period details, including leaded windows, hardwood flooring, high beamed ceilings, and intricate moldings and millwork. Designed by Emilie Munroe Studio, modern finishes throughout the home contrast beautifully with old-world charm. Concealed behind panel doors in the grand foyer is a wonderful designed bar space, complete with wine racks, a double U-line wine refrigerator and built-in cabinetry.
The living room is expansive and lovely, with a wall of intricately designed leaded windows and a charming window seat facing treetop greenery and beamed ceilings overhead. One on end of the room is an impressive wood-burning fireplace and mantle flanked by built-ins. On the opposite side of the foyer is an equally expansive formal dining room, with a wood burning fireplace, beamed ceilings, and a wall of windows also facing treetops.
Adjacent to the dining room is an attractive breakfast room, surrounded by leaded windows and open to the kitchen. The recently remodeled chef’s kitchen features marble countertops, a herringbone tile backsplash, and deluxe appliances including a Thermador Professional range, Faber hood, Blanco faucet, Bosch dishwasher, and SubZero refrigerator. The L-shaped layout provides plenty of counterspace and storage as well as an overhang for informal dining, plus a pantry area on the side for additional storage. Tucked away at the back of the kitchen is a convenient laundry room with a new side-by-side Samsung washer dryer, marble folding counter and shelving, as well as access to the back stairs for the building. Off the breakfast room is a delightful library, den, or home office equipped with built-in cabinets and shelving, a built-in desk, and a spacious walk-in closet.
Positioned privately at the other end of the home are the bedrooms and baths. The generous master bedroom is adorned with beautiful moldings highlighted in slate, contrasting with the white walls, and boast sliding doors to the back deck and oversized picture windows allowing for great light. On the way to the ensuite bathroom is a dressing area lined by two double closets, opening to the spa-like master bathroom with marble double vanity, soaking tub, and glass-enclosed separate shower.
The bedroom on the left is ample in size and has two large windows and a door opening to the back patio, and the third bedroom is marked by an intricate leaded window above the doorframe. These bedrooms share a bathroom off the hallway with sleek gray porcelain tile floors and white subway tile surround for the shower over tub.
The back patio/deck is fantastic, offering a covered decked ceiling, hanging pendant lighting, and wood railings, with ample areas for seating and relaxation in a tranquil, private setting surrounded by greenery. This entertainer’s home is also fully equipped with sound system and both indoor and outdoor speakers. This boutique 2-unit condominium offers garage parking with lots of additional storage. The location is wonderfully close to Presidio Playground, the Lyon Street steps, hiking and biking trails in the Presidio, and the shops and restaurants on Sacramento Street and in nearby Laurel Village.

If you like Pacific Heights, but don't like the pretension, then Presidio Heights is for you.

On sunny days, all shapes of families can be found spreading blankets across the hills of Presidio Park, laying out exquisite picnics and taking in the sun. Nearby Julius Kahn playground makes for extensive romping for boys and girls. Plentiful choices in neighborhood schools helps to add a certain ease when it comes to raising a family here. Some of the best schools in California, placing local students in the top tiers of competitive education, call Presidio Heights home. Presidio Heights offers homes for sale that are some of the most pristine properties in San Francisco. Many of the older homes are complete with front and back yards, and offer stately 2 storey living quarters that are unequaled in elegance. Known primarily as a residential neighborhood, there are plentiful shopping opportunities to be found in the adjacent Laurel district. This part of town is known for its ecumenical viewpoint. The Jewish synagogue Temple Emanuel sits just around the corner from the Little Sisters of the Poor on Lake Street. The Jewish Community Center, further down California Street, welcomes all to its top-notch health facility and nightly performance series of dance, music, and theater. Loads of ethnic and local fare can be found along the sidewalks as well. High end restaurants fill Sacramento Street along with the techno ambiance of upscale bars and clubs. Presidio Heights hits all the high notes when it comes to livability.
