Live steps away from the natural beauty of the Presidio...
This handsome Edwardian home sits just steps away from the natural beauty of the Presidio National Park on a coveted North-of-Lake cul de sac. Overlooking the Presidio, this light-filled home offers a traditional floor plan with spacious, comfortable rooms and sightlines that stretch from the pretty, tree-lined block back to the serene garden.
The large and welcoming foyer features a cozy inglenook with wood-burning fireplace and built-in seating nestled under the striking staircase, across from the stunning stained-glass window. Sunlight pours through a west-facing panoramic window into the gracefully proportioned living room. The expansive formal dining room opens onto a deck and the level backyard. The foyer, living and dining rooms are ideal for entertaining family and friends.
Remodeled to accommodate today’s lifestyle, this period beauty offers an open kitchen-family room that looks out to the backyard. Three distinct areas flow seamlessly together: a chef’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances, casual dining area with abundant cabinetry and a hang-out area for watching sports and favorite movies and for game nights. French doors open onto the deck and backyard inviting the outdoors in. This is California living – warm sun on the deck by day and cool evenings warmed by gathering around the fireplace.
Hardwood floors and a beautifully detailed banister extend up the impressive staircase and onto the roomy second floor. The spacious master suite stretches across the front of the house and features large windows with overlooks to the Presidio, a walk-in closet, and an attractively remodeled en suite bath with step-in shower, dual sinks and Porcelanosa fixtures. Two generously sized bedrooms overlook the backyard and the fourth bedroom makes an ideal child’s bedroom or office. A second remodeled bath with Porcelanosa fixtures and a fabulous tub completes the upper level.
The garden level offers extra space for play, exercise and hobbies. A laundry room, plenty of storage and garage complete this wonderful home.
Run or walk trails that wind through Redwood trees and crest to views of the sparkling Bay and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Listen to croaking frogs, screeching hawks and tolling foghorns. Awake to the invigorating smell of sea air. Enjoy delicious food from a plethora of restaurants. Shop the thriving farmer’s market, select bountiful produce and share recipes with friendly neighbors. Watch the sun set over Baker Beach.
