3196 Pacific Avenue

Remodeled Pacific Heights House on the Presidio Wall

Located in San Francisco

ABSTRACT: Handsome, Georgian-style, fully detached home with wonderful curb appeal in a verdant setting. Six bedrooms and four and one half bathrooms include a seductive master suite with a terrace and lovely outlooks. Four additional bedrooms plus an office are on one level. Guest/maid's suite with its own separate entrance on the lower level. Gracious, large-scale public rooms flooded with light and a beautifully renovated, stylish kitchen with informal seating as well as a welcoming built-in banquette breakfast table. A terrific media/playroom at the lower level, with huge amounts of thoughtful storage space. Attached one+ car garage.


Main Level: Unlatch the charming gate and enter this delightful private-feeling home. A tiled entry showcases the magnificent trim work and turn-of-the-century detailing. The impressive front door opens onto a large, bright foyer and the splendid dining room, with its green and private outlooks. The dining room has a wonderful bordered hardwood floor, warm toffee-colored faux-finish painted walls and built-in speakers, as do several of the other rooms. The living room is also a handsome, bright room with windows on three sides and a marble-faced center fireplace, allowing for two seating areas. Built-in cabinetry provides for storage.


The kitchen has spectacularly tall windows looking out to greenery and trees. A huge banquette seating area with built-in storage and custom cushions is nestled within the tall window bay. The light and airy theme is carried out with Calacatta marble countertops, tall white cabinetry and a gleaming white subway tile backsplash. The appliances are a five-burner Wolf cooktop and oven, dishwasher, compactor, microwave and Sub-zero fridge/freezer. The sink is at its own window overlooking greenery. A peninsula allows for additional counter space and a casual seating area with barstools. A separate pantry with carved wood doors completes the kitchen. In general this house has very ample storage with cupboards down the stairs and several closets in the lower level as well. The powder room is discreetly set apart a few steps down from the public rooms.


Middle Level: There are four attractive bedrooms at this level, one of which has a fireplace and a stacked washer dryer in the closet and is used as a den. Each of these rooms is bright and well-proportioned and has a good-sized closet. One of them has an ensuite tiled bathroom with a walk-in shower. Another hallway bathroom serves the other three bedrooms. This bathroom is large and well-equipped with two sinks and a closet for supplies and linens. In addition, there is a spacious hallway linen closet. A bright corner office with a built-in desk and storage completes this level.


Upper Level: The entire top floor is devoted to a serene master suite. Windows in the eaves provide wonderful Western views and French doors open onto a tiled balcony with sweeping vistas onto the trees and greenery. This private retreat has an ample walk-in closet and the large well-laid out bathroom features a skylight and a dramatic freestanding claw-foot tub, along with a separate toilet, good-sized shower and a long vanity counter.


Lower Level: The media room at the lower level is sunken, providing excellent ceiling height. It has a movie-theater set-up with a projector and built-in speakers. There is built-in shelving and cabinetry for games and movie equipment along one wall. A door leads directly outside to the walled dog-run and side yard space with pretty plantings. The guest room/au pair opens onto this media room. The guest room has an ensuite bathroom done in light hexagonal tile and white subway wall-tile, with a large built-in medicine cabinet. The laundry room is multi-purpose with an oversized wine refrigerator, fridge/freezer, Bosch side-by-side washer and dryer and a long counter with a laundry sink. A door out to the sidewalk completes this floor along with the extremely large one-car garage, which is equipped with wall-cabinetry and a workbench and space for storage of all sorts.


This gorgeous house is nestled right into the Presidio with fabulous access to recreation and beautiful scenery, as well as a short distance to excellent schools, shopping and dining.
