Classic View Residence in the Spanish/Mediterranean Style by G. Albert Lansburgh, Architect

A truly romantic, very private residence built in 1924 by the renowned architect G. Albert Lansburgh as his own home. It is situated on an unusually large parcel overlooking tall, sculpted Cypress trees above Broadway’s Gold Coast with expansive views encompassing the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island & the bay.

The public spaces echo the magical interiors of the San Francisco Opera House which the architect designed, in particular, the triple arched entrance, the magnificent vaulted foyer with its impressive main staircase & mezzanine landing; the theme is carried to the living & dining rooms.

The aficionado of the authentic Spanish/Mediterranean style will appreciate all the detailing & fine finishes which have been meticulously preserved & maintained throughout: handmade, glazed ceramic tile floors, impeccable hardwood floors with inlay, handsome carved wood doors, sumptuously tiled bathrooms, six fireplaces & period lighting. Besides its myriad architectural delights, visitors will be thrilled to discover the enchanting water & garden views from its many rooms.

The centerpiece of the formal Italian garden, designed by Thomas Church, is the tiled octagonal fountain with a cherub; a second fountain with a lion’s head is set in the garden alcove. Plantings in the sunny & tranquil garden include manicured boxwood hedges, many varieties of rhododendron & camellias, lovely rose bushes & climbers, colorful seasonal blooms. The pergola with classic columns is entwined with lavender Wisteria & white grape vines.
