Perched on Telegraph Hill’s most coveted cul-de-sac block, this very private and serene classic Mediterranean residence exemplifies gracious living and gorgeous views.
Main living floor is an architecturally interesting open floor plan that is visually beautiful and perfect for entertaining. The spacious living room features expansive water views of passenger liners and sail boat sightings interspersed with the tranquil bay. The dining room is defined by architectural columns and a walk-in bar/lounge is steps away. A lovely remodeled kitchen has all the components and style necessary for creating masterpiece cuisine and it combines with a generously sized breakfast area that could accommodate a table for eight. Double sliding doors lead to a sublime walk-out garden and patio area replete with palm trees and other exotic plantings including a living wall appropriate for Telegraph Hill’s warmer climate. At the rear of the garden stands an adorable and private one bedroom/bath guest cottage.
On the bedroom level, expansive water views captivate from the master bedroom with adjoining dressing area and spa-like bath. In addition, there are two spacious guest bedrooms, one of which is currently fitted with built-in office furnishings and there is also a remodeled bath.
The pent room floor is an expansive open space with two very large and useable walk-out terraces. The front terrace has panoramic bridge to bridge as well as water views and the rear south facing terrace is perfect for gathering sun and enjoying Telegraph Hill’s best weather.
The lower level was created by the current owners as a gallery space for art. It also has a theater-size
dropdown screen and a built-in high definition projector as well as surround sound. The adjoining wine cellar is refrigerated and is large enough for 2,000 bottles. The spacious garage will hold two larger cars in tandem. A set of stairs from the garage leads directly to the garden for easy garden maintenance.
