Style: Mediterranean Built: 1948
Sited on a double corner lot, this beautiful view house had definitely seen better days but had all the right elements to become a more spacious and spectacular home. Very unassuming to start, this home now has 5 bedrooms and 3 baths with over 3000 sq. ft of living space. The architectural origins of this home have been restored and enhanced with very modern and up to date style and systems. And talk about views…unobstructed Golden Gate and Bay views from nearly every room! This home has been completely renovated and is eagerly awaiting its next chapter in history.
The previously isolated kitchen has been artfully opened to the dining room and now features a grand peninsula perfect for casual dining and entertaining, all new professional appliances including a Viking 6 burner range, quartz counters, all new wood cabinetry, butler pantry with wine refrigeration and loads of glass with views of the Golden Gate and Bay.
The dramatic public spaces, including the formal living room and separate dining room feature a new gas fireplace with original mantel, period arches and crown molding, custom lighting and views of the front courtyard and fountain as well as a new large picture window framing the breathtaking views.
A once dark and walled off stairwell leading to the lower level has been reimagined and opened up creating the heart of the home with a seamless transition between levels featuring beautiful oak treads, art feature wall, skylight and a distinctive chandelier.
Bedrooms on the main level are oversized and the expanded Master Suite, now an elegant retreat, includes 3 closets, Golden Gate views, and new en-suite luxurious bath with herringbone custom shower, double vanity, and again, spectacular views.
The first level master bedroom, a gracious retreat, now includes a huge walk in closet, wall to wall glass with Golden Gate views, private door to spacious deck and an en suite luxurious bath with oversized custom shower with bench, double vanity, Carrara marble floors and spectacular view from each sink.
The lower level has been expanded and now includes 2 new bedrooms, mudroom landing, extra storage and a new bath with beautiful hardwood vanity, large shower and custom tilework. The bright and oversized laundry room has new wood cabinetry, quartz countertops and large laundry sink. This level also includes a very large family room, now with standard ceiling heights, new custom picture windows and french door leading directly to the huge walled outdoor patio with dining area, gorgeous outdoor fireplace with original Batchelder tile and loads of entertaining space. True California indoor/outdoor flow. There is a two car garage with interior access. The double lot has extra space for potential expansion and features separate secluded spaces, grass area for play, and space for raised bed gardening.
This home has undergone major infrastructure improvements including full seismic retrofit, all new windows, on demand hot water, high efficiency furnace, electrical upgrades, new plumbing and sewer lateral just to name a few.
With great attention to design, respect for the past and meticulous construction this home is not only beautiful but solid and secure…a signature Bee Renovated property to last for generations…
