Fantastic single-family Marina home on a beautiful block just steps from the Palace of Fine Arts and the waterfront. A reverse floorplan captures the excellent southern sunlight and open views from the top floor kitchen/family room. Across three levels are five bedrooms (or four bedrooms plus office), three and one-half bathrooms, wonderful entertaining spaces, and a walk-out yard.
On the top floor of the home is a wonderfully wide, open living room with a wall of four oversized windows with lead detail overlooking the tree-lined street below, and a fireplace for chilly nights. An elegant dining area is delineated by a chandelier and close to the kitchen entrance for convenience. The stairwell, with hardwood flooring throughout, is illuminated by an overhead skylight and leads to a chic powder room for guests as well as a walk-in pantry closet. Both the hallway and dining area lead to a fabulous open kitchen, renovated with an enormous butcher block island complete with a stainless cooktop and sink, as well as built-in cabinetry and shelving on all sides. The kitchen is equipped with quartz countertops, white cabinetry and sleek brass pulls, allowing for ample counter and storage space, a bar area, built-in pantry cabinets, and a sink underneath a sunny window. Deluxe stainless appliances include Thermador double ovens, a SubZero panel refrigerator, wine refrigerator and a Bosch dishwasher. Across from the kitchen island is the family room, filled with sunlight from two-south facing window bays with built-in window seats – perfect for family gatherings and informal dining.
The second floor of the home houses the primary suite plus two additional bedrooms and a second bathroom. The front bedroom presents a fireplace flanked by built-in double closets. Four beautiful, large leaded windows are complemented by period detail including picture rails and crown and baseboard moldings. The middle bedroom has a south facing window for beautiful sunshine, and both bedrooms share an attractive bathroom outfitted with white tile on the shower over tub surround, a floating vanity, and stylish porcelain gray floor tile. Also on this level is a hall closet for storage, and a dumbwaiter from the garage!
The primary suite centers around three oversized south-facing windows overlooking greenery from surrounding trees and gardens and bringing in incredible southern light. This suite includes incredible closet space – four total closets including two substantial walk-ins – enough space for even the biggest clotheshorse! The primary bathroom has a beautiful walk-in glass shower, a double vanity with quartz countertops, a picturesque Kohler soaking tub under the window, and a water closet.
On the lower floor is a fourth bedroom with two closets and fabulous office with built-in desk and shelving (which could easily be used as a fifth bedroom). These rooms share a hallway bathroom with a double vanity with glass base and a shower over tub. Glass sliding doors from the bedroom and office lead directly out to a magical garden with freshly cut lawn and mature trees and planting. Also on this level is a laundry room with side-by-side washer dryer and folding space, a hall closet, an under-stairs storage closet, and direct garage access. The garage fits two cars side by side and has an additional storage space which would be ideal for a wine cellar at the back.
The home is wonderful as-is but should one desire, the current owners have obtained permitted plans for the addition of a fourth level, complete with two fabulous roof decks and an outdoor kitchen on the front deck.
This convenient, walkable and peaceful Marina location is just blocks from Chrissy Field and the waterfront, the tranquil scene at the Palace of Fine Arts, and the shops and restaurants of Chestnut Street! Enjoy the California lifestyle with biking, hiking, trails and fine dining all at your fingertips. Move right in to this expansive, bright home!
