If there’s ever been a home straight out of a fairytale, 780 4th Avenue is it! Fully detached, its greenery-shrouded front and rear gardens welcome you into warm and sophisticated interiors with charming period detail, where it’s hard to imagine a world outside this home. The scale of the main level is generous with a magazine-worthy living room, custom cabinetry, abundant natural light through windows on three sides, and an original stone fireplace. Across the open foyer, the dining room offers ample space for dinner parties with access to a deck and garden through French doors, more natural light and fresh air. The adjacent kitchen, heart of the home, features beautiful millwork, custom range hood and cabinets, marble countertops and an oversized island, all lit by a skylight. A sun-filled breakfast nook with custom built banquette offers cozy in-kitchen dining. A marble laundry and mudroom with built-in desk provides easy back yard, garage and private alley access for coming and going. The gorgeous full bathroom on this level is accented by a floor-to-ceiling marble walk-in shower with charming designer wallpaper.

Up the central staircase is a serene primary suite with sun-filled windows and two spacious walk-in closets. The second bedroom offers verdant outlooks, a walk-in closet and an adjoining sunroom with unlimited opportunities for work, play, or meditation. A full bathroom with built-ins completes the upper level. The house offers abundant storage throughout and in the basement with a separate entry. 

Perhaps the most unique feature of the home is the backyard with its private, sun kissed, magical garden and standalone garage, creative space, or gym. Last but certainly not least is the alley at the rear of the property, rare for the Richmond. It offers private access to the house and loads of space for outdoor playtime. The property is steps from Golden Gate Park where the Conservatory of Flowers, the Tennis Center, DeYoung and The Academy of Sciences are a mere stroll away.
