For those who have been willing to wait for something truly special… it has arrived. Prepare to be inspired. Jaw-dropping views and awe-inspiring scale are the hallmarks of this luxurious penthouse atop one of Alamo Square's architectural gems. Thanks to the east-facing elevation and open double-wide parlor, the unobstructed views lend a feeling of floating above the city, yet the golden dome of City Hall seems almost within reach. The truly grand formal living room and formal dining rooms are graced with stunning stained glass and natural light rarely found in this vintage of home, thanks to the windows along the entire south side. A Wolf gas stove is the centerpiece of the remodeled, open-concept kitchen, where home chefs can soak in the views day and night. Two bedrooms and a spacious full bath complete the main level. Upstairs, the ascendant primary suite spans the width of the building and offers a panoramic wonderland of city skyline and bay, as well as a dreamy walk-in closet and en suite bathroom. And for all of that additional space your household has been craving? There are two additional roomy bedrooms, plus a spacious office and third full bath. This home feels every inch of it’s 4,000+ square feet, with spaces for home office, guest suite, workout room, and whatever else you desire.
This striking building was designed by architect James Francis Dunn, who was known for his exuberant and French-inspired creations. In the Chronicle’s words: It's not surprising that legends swirl around apartment houses designed by James Francis Dunn. With their undulating, cloudlike facades and lion-headed brackets, his buildings are among the most picturesque and provocative in San Francisco, and the most redolent of the grand boulevards of Paris.
Exterior details lend dramatic emphasis from top to bottom. Corinthian columns flank the entryway, and gargoyles guard the distinctive oval windows. Triple-wow factor in this gorgeous piece of SF history. Previously featured in the NY Times and a stand-out by any definition, this is a home you’ll be proud to own and welcome guests in for years to come.
Located just south of Pacific Heights and northeast of Cole Valley, Alamo Square is home to one of the world's most famous views. The Painted Ladies that run along Steiner and face Alamo Square Park make up one of the city's most recognizable landmarks, so much so that the area was nicknamed Postcard Row. Visitors and prospective residents may also recognize Alamo Square as the setting for the popular sitcom Full House.
However, there is much more to this neighborhood than just a photo opportunity. Despite being somewhat off the beaten path, Alamo Square attracts its fair share of tourists, who can often be spotted strolling with cameras while viewing such historic treasures as the Westerfield Mansion, the Chateau Tivoli, and the Archbishop's Mansion.
The heart of the neighborhood is Alamo Square Park, which is located in between Fulton and Hayes Street. Park amenities include a dog run, playground and popular tennis courts, all with incredible panoramic views of San Francisco. Additionally, a $5.3 Million renovation was completed in 2017. The original plan was to update the irrigation systems, but the project expanded into adding new trees, new walking paths, and even a new bathroom near the playground. The renovation truly demonstrates the passion and pride Alamo Square residents take in their neighborhood.
The streets are lined with some of the city's finest examples of Victorian architecture, as this area was the nexus of a preservation boom that swept the city in the 1970s. Centrally located, residents have easy access to freeways and downtown; the Central Freeway 101 is just one mile from Alamo Square, making it easy to commute to/from the Silicon Valley. Since the neighborhood is centrally located, downtown and several popular neighborhoods and landmarks are within a short ride on one of several Muni lines that service the area. Presidio and Industrial Light and Magic are only a 30 minute ride away, as are the Financial District and Google Headquarters.
