Magnificent Residence with Gated Terrace & Garden

1 Cherry – One of the City’s most gracious homes is situated on an expansive corner parcel across from the verdant greenery of Presidio Park.

Its setting imparts a sense of a country estate. The balanced symmetry of Tudor architecture unfolds in stately brick patterns and stone balustrades. Beautifully proportioned public rooms open to the gated, sun-filled terrace and garden for elegant indoor-outdoor entertaining and family enjoyment.

The house underwent a stunning renovation in 1996 with Pfau Architecture and general contractor Ryan Associates, with additional improvements by the present owner. The exquisite designers involved are listed below. For more information, visit

Main Level

Enter the carved arched door to the gracious CENTER HALL with high ceiling, deep crown molding, tall pocket doors, rich square paneling and beautiful hardwood flooring in the herringbone pattern (in all the public areas). The grand staircase is a signature feature in this elegant entry.

The beautifully proportioned grand LIVING ROOM provides a formidable setting with a marble fireplace, dentil crown molding, Corinthian stiles and rich paneled walls. Large double bays bring in abundant natural light, one with French doors that open to the south terrace/garden and the other with transom windows that look out to the greenery of the Presidio Parklands.

The gracious DINING ROOM seats a very large dinner party. It features an ornate fireplace and wainscoting. French doors open to the terrace for alfresco dining.

The spacious KITCHEN/FAMILY ROOM is the heart of the house for informal dining and family gatherings. It is ideally laid out for today’s lifestyle of cooking and socializing in a relaxed ambience. It also provides a smooth flow for caterers. Features include:
