OVERVIEW —The classic Victorian home was designed by Frederick Hamilton in 1890 as his personal residence. Unique period installations have been preserved by its several owners over a century's time. The fa┴ade, noted for its Queen Anne stateliness, was granted an easement to the San Francisco Heritage Foundation in the 1970s. A minor alteration was permitted in this impressive renovation/expansion in order to align the garage entrance with the fa┴ade-proper.

The residence has been seamlessly transformed to provide expansive indoor/outdoor living, taking full advantage of the large sunny and private rear garden. Abundant natural light floods the redesigned and expanded interior spaces on all four levels with tall ceilings and doorways, fresh cream walls contrasting the beautiful dark hardwood floors, mood and art lighting, and all the modern conveniences for comfortable living and elegant entertaining. The primary focus shared among the owner, design and project teams has been the 'blending of the new and the old' ˝impressively, yet subtly resulting in a magical sum more than its parts!

MAIN LEVEL —Enter the FOYER through a handsome carved door which frames a multi-colored stain glass floral scene, flanked by traditional sidelights and arched glass transom. The sense of arrival is that of large open spaces as the eye travels all the way out to the garden with the espalier pear trees like living art against the cement wall.

The LIVING ROOM with striking fireplace and curved bay windows look out to the pretty treeelined street scape. The open DINING ROOM provides an elegant setting for entertaining. Original wainscoting and hardwood floors throughout have been restored or newly installed. The high ceilings and abundance of light enhance every area of the entertaining floor.

The heart of the house is the light and airy open plan of the brilliantly designed GREAT ROOM with garden outlook and incorporating the KITCHEN, BREAKFAST AREA and FAMILY ROOM˝so ideal for today's comfortable style of daily living.

The ultra modern KITCHEN has been expanded beyond the original footprint with new sawn oak flooring. Expansive marble counter tops and custom cabinets provide ample space for food preparation, storage and buffet presentations. The elongated marble center island is designed for cooking space and convenient bar seating.

Top-of-the-line appliances include: Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, commercial Dacor stove with six burners & grill top, professional ventilator, double ovens and two Miele dishwashers.

The Great Room features folding Nano glass doors which open to the south facing large TERRACE & GARDEN, a perfect setting for indoor-outdoor living. The whimsical and delightful outdoor space designed by the renown TOPHER DELANEY includes fire elements for warmth and night time drama, barbecue & sink in custom outdoor cooking area, herb garden, fountain, flowering fruit trees and more. A walk in this garden is a delight full of surprises.

Another focal point in the Great Room is the BREAKFAST AREA with the dazzling multi-colored leaded glass dome which sparkles from the sun during the day. Original to the house, it has been meticulously and beautifully restored.

The spacious FAMILY AREA allows for family and friends while food preparation is underway. One wall contains floor to ceiling custom shelving for books, art and flat screen TV.

SECOND LEVEL —Ascend the handsome staircase with carved mahogany posts and white spindles, past the art glass sidelights at mid-landing to the bedroom level.

The spacious and bright MASTER BEDROOM with fireplace and sitting area. An oversized walk-in DRESSING ROOM houses 'his and her' custom wardrobes and accessories storage.

The luxurious MASTER BATH with mosaic tile surround features double vanities, spa tub, separate shower and separate WC.

Two BEDROOMS (one with fireplace) feature built-in bookcases and custom closets. A SUNROOM/PLAYROOM overlooks the garden. A tiled FULL BATH with double vanities completes this level.

THIRD LEVEL — The charming gabled top floor with multiple mansard skylights has been paneled in individual beaded planks giving the enormous space a charming country ambience.

The front AT-HOME OFFICE with period tryptich arched window look out to the stately brick Tudor and rose garden across the way. Built-in double desks, bookcases and bar fridge provide a convenient work/study space.

The open FAMILY/MEDIA ROOM with flat screen monitor and book/art shelves serves as the heart of this multiuse guest or work/play level. A convenient half-bath adjoins.

The air conditioned private GUEST BEDROOM and FULL BATH with free standing designer tub and separate shower complete this level.

LOWER LEVEL — The lower level features a AU PAIR ROOM and BATH, laundry room with s/s washer and dryer, temperature controlled wine cellar, mechanical room and extra storage. The elevator accesses all four levels of the house.

The GARAGE can house three vehiclesˇan independent space and two in tandemˇalong with driveway parking.
