A Neighborhood for Every Lifestyle
In the highly sought-after Elmwood neighborhood, on a coveted street with homes that stay in the same stewardship for generations, this spectacular property has a rare confluence of longed for elements not typically found today. The main residence features light-filled, gorgeous architecture, nestled into beautiful level grounds surrounded by majestic trees and a mature shade garden with towering oaks and redwoods. A rare and stylish detached ADU with one bedroom, one bath, and set within the serene garden space has a private entrance that allows for proximity to the main home, as well as flexibility and independence when required. Flawlessly combining modern living with a truly inviting and elegant design, this home has been refreshed with a new kitchen, some new baths, and updates throughout. The dramatic, sweeping living room features a regal mantel, period crown molding, and opens onto a newly-tiled terrace, bringing the outdoors in and allowing you to enjoy the exquisite year-round California lifestyle and temperate weather. The dining room is a ready stage for many dinners with family and friends for years to come. An expansive primary retreat graces the upper floor, with a large closet and dressing area, as well as two other generous bedrooms and a full bathroom. Iconic yet ever-changing, this site in the Elmwood and adjacent Rockridge neighborhoods beckon walkers and strollers alike to visit local shops and restaurants for fun shopping or romantic evenings with a glass of wine. Also, within striking distance are major tributaries to easily take commuters by bus, BART, car, or bike to San Francisco, the Peninsula, Silicon Valley, or Contra Costa. A magnificent and idyllic property like this rarely comes to market in this location.
It's all downhill from Twin Peaks. Literally. The second highest point in San Francisco, Twin Peaks offers the best views of the city. On a foggy night, watching the lights of the city far below, and listening to the mournful toll of the fog horns, its easy to believe you are standing on the prow of a ship in the middle of the ocean.
Instead you are nearly at the geographic center of San Francisco. Stroll down one hill and you are in Cole Valley, with access to Golden Gate Park, a tidy retail district of shops and restaurants, the N-Judah and an easy commute downtown or to Ocean Beach. In the other direction, straight down 17th Street, the Castro lies stretched out at the foot of the hill. In between on the slopes of Twin Peaks, the quiet, curving streets lead to homes offering unobstructed views of the city below.
The neighborhood is largely residential, with single-family homes making up the bulk of the available housing. Victorians at the foot of the slopes give rise to mid-century modern showplace homes toward the top of Twin Peaks. Clarendon School, located here, is one of the most sought after public schools in the city.
