Pacific Heights View Home
Located on a level block of San Francisco’s quiet “Cow Hollow” neighborhood – a scenic cul-de-sac with no through-traffic that boasts some of the City’s most architecturally distinctive homes. With its south-facing exposure, 2868 Vallejo captures sweeping North Bay views from all four stories. The terraced English garden is deep and charming and a welcome surprise for a city home. Originally built in 1904, the home was completely and carefully renovated by Agnes Bourne, a well-known San Francisco designer, who combined historic detailing with contemporary open planning.
This home is the quintessential country home in the city; sunny and bright, yet sophisticated and formal, providing a variety of personal spaces as well as large entertainment areas for an active creative, contemporary lifestyle.
The entrance to the main floor is level from the street. The large ‘L’ shaped living room across the northern view side of the house has a large cobblestone fireplace. A bright kitchen captures both the view and the south facing entry. A unique formal dining room-library with a fireplace and built-in bookcases makes the connection from the living room to the entry. There are four bedrooms with private baths, a view master suite, a media room with cathedral high ceilings and a solarium with the most stunning panoramic views. A loft-like art studio/office is privately located off the garden.
The second floor has a master bedroom suite, two sunny bedrooms with baths and a conveniently located laundry/linen room. Views from the master bedroom and mirrored bath sweep from the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz Island.
The third floor with a media/entertainment center has a truly magnificent, huge open raftered family room. The cozy alcove bedroom and bath, cabinets, bookshelves, fireplace and views, make the third floor an ideal retreat.
On the lower level there is a bedroom and a bath, a two story working studio/playroom and a wine storage room. French doors lead to a mature landscaped garden with Koi pond. An additional storage room with built-in cabinets is off the breezeway.
The two-car side-by-side garage includes a work area and three storage rooms. The sliding doors are electronically operated and open to the driveway, which accommodates two off-street parking spaces.
