This classic Victorian is situated on a pretty tree-lined street, restored and remodeled to the highest quality. The 115 year old home was gutted to the studs and the two year renovation was completed in 2003. This fine home provides an ambience of elegant entertaining and comfortable City living. It is convenient to the Hayes Valley shopping & dining, Civic Center performing arts and easy 101 access to the Peninsula—the best of vibrant San Francisco living!
The façade is described as a “stick-style” Victorian in Here Today:
San Francisco’s Architectural Heritage. It is a late 19th Century American architectural term describing the overlaying of board strips on exterior construction to mimic half-timbered framing with modest decorative motifs, in contrast to the highly decorated “Italianate” style. The all new interiors maintain the period’s characteristics of high ceilings, tall doorways, beautiful crown & wainscot moldings, carved wood detailing of door & window casements, polished hardwood floors, rosettes with exquisite period chandeliers and sconce lighting.
A list of capital improvements and ‘smart home’ communications, entertainment & security Installations is provided in the end page
The Floor Plan
The double-gated vestibule and ENTRY HALL introduces meticulously restored and duplicate period architectural details found throughout the home.
The beautifully proportioned adjoining public rooms with their tall wide doorways provide a natural flow for elegant entertaining.
The LIVING ROOM with period fireplace looks out to the pretty tree-lined streets, classic homes across the way and Buena Vista Park beyond.
The equally elegant FAMILY/MEDIA ROOM serves as a comfortable space for relaxation.
The formal DINING ROOM comfortably seats a large dinner party. It features a carved wood fireplace and handsome wainscots. The original built-in glass front china cabinet can store a complete dining service.
If you think “Victorian” means “no storage,” come look. Opposite dining room, a wall of custom storage is found behind intricately carved wood door and blind door detailing. Invisible to the homeowner and guest, the custom cabinets can store an array of entertainment pieces for large scale entertaining or keep toys in their place when guests arrive.
The light-filled KITCHEN with spacious BREAKFAST AREA is the heart of the house for daily dining and informal socializing. The layout will please both the home cook and caterer.

Once synonymous with the counter culture revolution, today's Haight Ashbury is a decidedly more grown up neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the City's most unique homes, parks and shopping. Of course, it's still a tourist favorite. The Haight radiates around one of the city's most popular shopping destinations. You can find books and art, vintage and trendy attire, high end chocolates and second hand records. There are many popular dive bars, but that doesn't keep up and coming mixologists away. And when dinner time rolls around, the dining options are endless. The neighborhood is home to many Victorian and Edwardian homes, some of which have been restored in eye-popping palettes. Homes near the Panhandle are exceptionally desirable. There are also multi-unit apartment buildings and condos for the investment buyer. Beautiful parks surround the Haight. The Panhandle is a great spot to bike, shoot hoops or just chill out by the bandstand. Golden Gate Park is home to many cultural attractions and outdoor pursuits. And Buena Vista Park is near the eastern edge of the neighborhood, popular with joggers, dog walkers, and anyone who loves a great view. Running along the north edge of the neighborhood, both Oak and Fell streets are major thoroughfares offering quick auto access to downtown and freeways. A number of buses serve the area, and a Muni street car stops just south of Haight. Bicyclists utilize a path called The Wiggle to access the neighborhood without taking on major hills or busy intersections.
