Beautiful newly remodeled residence on a premier block in Russian Hill. This home boasts four bedrooms and five bathrooms across three levels, with custom upgrades throughout and designer fixtures and finishes. Wonderful light streams in from with skylights overhead and there are pretty outlooks from multiple decks and bay windows. Past a charming Victorian façade, the home opens to a light-filled entry with white oak flooring. To the left is a sunny living room with skylights overhead and a window bay facing east to the greenery of George Sterling Park. A sleek gas fireplace is at the center of the room with quartz surround and bench. To the right of the living room is an office/library with oversized east-facing windows and a closet, and adjacent to the office is a wonderful den or guest room with a barn door entrance and closet. These rooms share a bathroom directly across the hall which has been outfitted with a floating vanity and a striking bronze accent wall amidst the cool, neutral tile surround of the shower over tub. A hidden closet off the hallway is convenient for linen storage. Further down the hallway, the space expands to an open kitchen family room, centered around a striking quartz island with breakfast bar and waterfall edge. The chef’s kitchen is equipped with deluxe Thermador appliances, custom cabinetry including lift-up cabinets and a pantry closet. Two floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open to a large deck for dining al fresco, partially covered by a beamed ceiling, and overlooking the garden with peekaboo views to the west. Off the kitchen is an additional full bathroom with glass-enclosed shower, and adjacent is a spacious formal dining room, which presents an expansive space to entertain and features a bay of windows facing west and a storage closet. Upstairs are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as a laundry closet with side-by-side washer and dryer. The generous primary suite includes a double closet as well as two walk-in closets, as well as French doors leading out to a private deck with a filtered view of the Bay. The chic primary bathroom is outfitted with streamlined in-wall fixtures, a standalone soaking tub, a long floating walnut double vanity, and a striking glass shower with veined tile. Two bedrooms across the landing have overhead skylights and dormers, and both have access through glass doors to a charming back enclosed patio. They share an attractive bathroom with a glass-enclosed shower and veined tile walls. One more flight up is the crown jewel of the home, as a retractable skylight rolls back with a push of a button to reveal an incredible roofdeck, offering views of the San Francisco Bay and Palace of Fine Arts to the west and the park greenery to the east. On the lower level is a fantastic media room/family room with two walls of built-in shelving and cabinetry and a wine corner with built-in wine racks, quartz countertop and cabinetry, and a wine refrigerator – perfect for entertaining guests! Sliding glass doors lead out to the inviting garden, with a covered paved area for dining and turf lawn surrounded by landscaping. Also on the lower level is a lovely guest suite, including a full bathroom with shower and a bedroom with built-in closets and a separate street entrance. Adjacent to the guest suite is a one-car garage. Located in the heart of Russian Hill, across the street from George Sterling Park and the sweeping views from Alice Marble tennis courts, just six blocks from the waterfront and a short walk to Francisco Park and the excellent restaurants, shopping and nightlife on Polk Street and Hyde Street.
