Fantastic single-family home in the desirable Lake District. Steps from the lush landscape of the Presidio, this modern, meticulously remodeled home sparkles with stylish finishes and an intuitive floorplan. It is well-appointed throughout with designer custom window treatments, hardwood floors, recessed lighting, built-in overhead speakers, and radiant heated floors. At the entrance is a gracious living room with an oversized window and window seat facing west. An inviting floating gas fireplace is flanked on both sides by cabinets and open shelving. Around the corner, the hallway opens up to a formal entry foyer, with a coat closet, a chic powder room with blue seagrass wallpaper and a fashionable bronze ceiling, and a storage closet under the main staircase. Past the foyer is a formal dining area, delineated by a dramatic overhead chandelier. Across from the dining area through sliding doors is a dramatic den/library, complete with accent wall and brass sconces – a perfect spot for a home office. At the back is the heart of the home: a gorgeous, expansive kitchen outfitted with dark blue custom cabinetry, brass pulls, and veined marble countertops with a waterfall edge on the island and slab backsplash on the surrounding counters. The sizable central island provides both an overhang for informal dining as well as prep space with a matte black faucet and Shaw’s sink and a Subzero mini refrigerator. L-shaped cabinets around the island are equipped with a Bosch dishwasher, six-burner Bertazzoni range, custom paneled hood, extra-large Subzero refrigerator, tall Subzero wine fridge, and another Shaw’s sink. Across from the island is a large walk-in pantry with built-in shelving, and adjacent to the kitchen is a sunny breakfast area with an attractive built-in, custom banquette. Off the breakfast area is a sliding door to a deck, with stairs to the garden. A central staircase with sleek glass railings leads to the upper level, with soaring ceilings overhead. There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms on one floor, plus a laundry room with side-by-side LG washer and dryer. The primary suite is at the back with a wall of giant windows flooding the room with eastern sunlight. This spacious room boasts double closets with handsome built-ins, grass cloth wall coverings, and an ensuite spa-like bathroom with floating double vanity, glass-enclosed rain shower, separate soaking tub, a dramatic mosaic tile accent wall – all illuminated by an overhead skylight. Two more sizeable bedrooms, both with roomy closets and overhead ceiling fans, share a lovely bathroom with porcelain tile, a glass-enclosed shower and a floating vanity. The fourth master-like bedroom is at the front of the house facing west, with large walk-in closet with built ins, and a sliding glass door that opens to a generous deck. The suite is completed with a sophisticated bathroom with a floating quartz-topped vanity and glass-enclosed walk-in shower. Downstairs is a fabulous family room, with a wall of sliding glass doors out to the garden, flanked by built-in cabinetry and shelving. On the opposite wall is a wet bar, with unique wood cabinetry, matte-black sink, floating shelving, and a Bosch dishwasher. This level also includes a full bathroom with a steam shower and could be easily used as an au pair suite. Walking out directly from the kitchen or from the lower floor, the lush garden is the ideal spot for entertaining as well as recreation. A sprawling grassy lawn is framed by bamboo for privacy and there is a beautiful built-in living wall on the back fence. Under a covered arbor is a fabulous hot tub, surrounded by exterior lighting, planters and a lemon tree. Down a few steps is a full entertaining area with outdoor kitchen cabinetry and prep area, built-in BBQ, and Forno Toscano pizza oven, a firepit, built-in speakers, overhead electric heaters, and plenty of room for both outdoor dining and seating. Discreetly tucked away is a tradesman’s entrance from the street as well as a built-in storage closet for gardening tools, cushions, and more. On the same level as the garden is a roomy two car garage with paint storage closet and plenty of room for storage on both sides. On a quiet street in a coveted location: two blocks north to Mountain Lake Park, playground, and dog park, half a block from quaint Ashley’s Café, and two blocks south to vibrant Clement Street, with marvelous dining such as Burma Superstar, Wako Japanese Restaurant, Arsicault Bakery, Chapeau, and more. Easy access to 101/Park Presidio.
