This wonderful home is a rare blend of special architecture, marvelous views and a gorgeous setting, all in a top location on a peaceful street just below the coveted Gold Coast. An impressive living room and large kitchen both open onto the expansive South-facing yard, while an elegant dining room has Bay views. Upstairs across two levels are four bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, plus a beautiful den/office with a wet bar and Golden Gate Bridge views which are shared by the top-level master suite. A powder room, laundry room on the bedroom level, downstairs maid’ suite, one-car parking in the garage with interior access to the home, and an elevator complete the amenities. This exquisite combination of features is rarely on the market and will be truly appreciated by the discerning buyer.
Situated on a coveted block of Vallejo, 2727 stands tall among its peers for the seamless way the home has blended historical design with modern living. One enters into a formal entryway. There is both a formal dining room, with access to the kitchen, as well as a formal living room, with access to the garden. Throughout there is charming period detail, gallery walls with spot lighting, and natural light throughout. There is also a half bathroom at this level for guests, and the generous kitchen is equipped with modern stainless appliances, a built-in informal seating area, a small office area where one can enjoy working while soaking in the sun, and a door leading out to the delightful English garden.
The stairs going up lead to two bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom. The rear bedroom, like the living and dining room, has a formal fireplace, and is very grand with a wall of windows overlooking the garden. On this floor there is also a big laundry room (formerly a bathroom) with space for a folding area, and a bright media room / library with views of the Golden Gate and an attached wet bar for serving cocktails.
One floor above there is one bedroom on the southern side with even more light, that overlooks the beautiful garden and allows views of some of the iconic buildings in the surrounding area. This has a large closet and a large bathroom as well. On the northern side, the master suite is breathtaking in every way. The view is spectacular - it offers a completely unobstructed vantage point to enjoy the Bridge, the Presidio, the Palace of Fine Arts, and the Bay. The room itself is large enough to house a king sized bed, a lounging area, a full office space with built ins, and more. The closet is truly walk-in, with pocket doors and built-in's, mirrored closets, and everything one could wish for. It leads into the bathroom which has dual vanities, and a huge stone shower with a luxurious seating area inside.
The lower level of the home offers a maid’s room with ensuite bath, ample storage and a one-car garage. All the basement areas offer expansion potential by excavating back under the house. A fabulous expansion plan (to expand the interior of the home to approx. 7171 sq. ft.) has been developed by Butler Armsden Architects and has passed the hurdle of an approved variance and is well on the way to permit issuance.
One of the defining features of the house is the large and peaceful garden. A sprawling level area gives way to a bucolic stepped-up section of greenery, from which there are lovely outlooks. The location is absolutely fabulous - directly below the “Gold Coast” in the heart of gorgeous Pacific Heights on a quiet block, and with marvelous views!
