St. Francis Wood Remarkable
French Mediterranean Home!
This spectacular French Mediterranean "Beaux Arts" home with ornate filigree built in 1924, designed by San Francisco native son and renowned architect Timothy L. Pflueger, is beautifully situated in the middle of a picturesque tree-lined block in the heart of the neighborhood, adjacent to Butterfly Park and close to Terrace Park and West Portal Village shops, restaurants and public transportation! An impressive landscaped garden entrance with brick walkway leads to the notable arched glass-paned front door and into a dramatic greeting hall with open-beam ceiling and convenient coat closet. The magnificent formal living room with vaulted open-beam ceiling boasts a stately wood-burning fireplace with exquisite mantel surround, built-in bookshelves, enormous multi-pane bay window with decorative balcony and gleaming hardwood floors. The stunning formal dining room with rich mahogany-stained wood paneling, built-in display shelves and striking chandelier is perfect for entertaining! The classic updated light-filled kitchen with large breakfast room and built-in china cabinets showcases stainless-steel appliances including a Fisher & Paykel refrigerator, General Electric dishwasher and stove, charcoal quartz counters, custom painted wood cabinets and adjacent spacious pantry/laundry room.
A grand picture gallery hallway leads to the home's private living quarters. The sumptuous master bedroom suite features an enormous walk-through closet and huge bath with separate shower and tub. Two additional good-size bedrooms and an incredible vintage tile bathroom with cast-iron tub, pedestal sink and recessed built-in vanity end this floor.
The gracious open-banister staircase ascends to the upper level with three additional light-filled bedrooms, third full bath and a sensational family/game room with second wood-burning fireplace, original built-in "library" bookshelves, large closet and walk-out roof deck with views.
The lower/basement level includes a rustic wine room, gigantic playroom, workroom, utility room and big two car parking garage. The tastefully designed landscaped backyard with expansive patio and direct access to St. Francis Wood's private Butterfly Park completes this truly special home!
