Own a piece of San Francisco history with this stunning architecturally significant home on an epic 175’ deep park-like lot on a quiet Noe Valley block just steps from the 24th Street and Valencia corridors. The home’s façade and curb appeal reflect grand scale and Classic Revival period details, and while the recently renovated interior boasts coved ceilings, stained-glass windows and designer fixtures, the backyard is the crown jewel of the home and deserves the title of “Best Backyard in San Francisco”. Begin the outdoor tour at the Ipe deck with seating area for an al fresco meal prepared in the built-in Green Egg smoker or gourmet barbecue. After dining, enjoy a soak and a cocktail in the trendily rustic barrel-sided tub, then rinse off (or have your morning shower) in the outdoor shower draped in greenery. Later on, entertain your friends on the expansive string-light-lit patio with built-in seating while the kids play on the swing set, shoot basketball hoops, or play soccer in the grass.

Once you have thoroughly enjoyed the exterior, explore the interior where the main level foyer welcomes you with a built-in window seat flanked by an expansive living room with a fireplace and arched east-facing windows letting in the morning light. Across the foyer, a formal dining room with original built-in banquette is adjacent to a perfect home office overlooking the incredible backyard. The impressive gourmet kitchen features high-end appliances, custom range hood, eye-catching floating shelves and a breakfast bar and opens into a casual sitting area for TV or homework with powder room and access to the deck and backyard. The second level offers four spacious and light-filled bedrooms, but the primary suite and its amenities are the focal point. A west-facing deck off the primary bedroom overlooks the backyard and is lit by romantic string lights while the marble en-suite bathroom is the definition of luxurious with deep soaking tub with verdant outlooks, double vanity, separate shower and washlet. An additional bathroom and laundry complete the upper level. On the lower level you’ll find not just an amazing media room with backyard access, but a second laundry area, a third full bathroom and a flexible space for a home gym, second home office, or guest room. Rounding out this once-in-a-lifetime home is wine storage, a spacious garage and plenty of storage. Once you’ve seen this incredible home and backyard, you will never want to leave.
