801 Francisco Street

Sale Price: $8,330,000

Nestled on a charming Russian Hill street sits one of San Francisco’s most unique and extraordinary properties. This lovely residence’s Arts and Craft’s architecture evokes the inspired timeless simplicity of a bygone era. Enter this appealing property through a handsome wrought iron gate and be transported in to a magical urban setting comprised of two harmoniously connected but separate residences. Open floor plans, beamed ceilings, native redwood, expansive windows, and hand crafted details are the hallmarks of this noted Maybeck-style design and are enjoyed throughout this exquisite home. The richly hued green shingles integrate with the surrounding landscaping, another important characteristic of this Craftsman aesthetic. Abundant natural light and dramatic Downtown, Bay Bridge, Bay, and Alcatraz views fill the rooms. Incomparable paneled walls, painted in a fine linen white, are showcased in every room lending a modern feel to a traditional interior. The welcoming living room boasts sensational sweeping views and a wood-burning fireplace. An impressively scaled dining room features a wall of South-facing leaded glass windows and French doors that frame stunning iconic scenery and open out to a generous balcony. The family room, with its own fireplace, is adjacent to an expansive red brick patio with mature verdant landscaping and sculpted trees that envelope this delightful outdoor space. A special glass elevator offers the perfect combination of function and flare, enabling access to all levels while taking in the remarkable views. The guest house enjoys picturesque views and its idyllic ambience creates the perfect sanctuary for family and friends. This residence, owned by the same family for 103 years, has been impeccably maintained which underscores the already exclusive character of this quintessential San Francisco property and contributes to the unsurpassed appeal of such a rare offering.
