2845 Lake Street, SAN FRANCISCO, California 94121
Welcoming remodeled home surrounded by greenery in a fenced and gated yard. Five bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms and an enormous inviting bonus play/family room. Garage and plenty of storage. Top location. Enter the private garden which surrounds this house and pause at the inviting patio area before entering the front door. There is an elegant entry which opens to both the formal living room to one side and the large kitchen/dining/family room. The living room is large, with windows on three sides, one of them a bay window. An attractive gas fireplace anchors one wall with adjacent bookshelves. The room is large enough for a substantial seating area as well as a dining table (as shown) or a grand piano or second seating area. The kitchen is a chef’s dream with a farmhouse sink at the window, ample stone counters, plenty of storage, a very large island with bar stools, professional stainless steel appliances and a gas cook-top all set off by crisp white cabinetry. The spacious seating area opens out onto the patio/garden and in addition there is a windowed dining area which is perfect for a large casual dining table. At this level there is a guest suite, a practical and well laid-out laundry room and a powder room as well as access to the driveway and wide two car garage. Upstairs there are three full bedrooms and an office/bedroom. The master suite is deliciously lavish, with its own small foyer, great light, a tiled master bathroom done in grays and whites with two separate sinks, storage, a gorgeous freestanding tub and a separate over-sized shower and a separate WC room. The suite has two walk-in closets, one of which is unusually large. One of the other bedrooms is very large and could easily be shared, the other is smaller but equally bright and equally well-served with a big closet. Both bedrooms have access to the Jack-and-Jill bathroom. The office could be used as a bedroom although it does not have the direct access to a bathroom. Again, it is a bright and attractive room. Downstairs is a children’s paradise. Almost the entire basement of the house is carpeted and there is a table tennis area, a seating area with built-in TV hook-ups, and additional play areas. Down here there is also an adult or child office area and really great storage. The detached garage is currently being used as an exercise area as there is ample parking in the off-street driveway. The location of this home is impeccable, surrounded by equally lovely single family homes and within easy reach of China and Banker beaches as well as grocery stores and restaurants in the neighborhood on California and Clement Streets.
