Summary: This lovely home in a prime Cow Hollow location – the Presidio’s coveted eastern border - may be enjoyed as it is shown today or renovated and expanded to make full use of the large lot and envelope potential. Today, it consists of: 3BD/2.5BA with a gracious formal living room, formal dining room, eat-in kitchen, and an office which may be converted to a 4th bedroom. Walk out, south-facing patio and deep, secluded garden. 3-car garage and a huge storage room/workshop.
Neighborhood: This last block of Green Street is one of Cow Hollow’s most desirable locations and is considered by Walkscore® to be “Very Walkable – Most errands can be accomplished on foot.” At the end of this flat block is the Lyon Street cul-de-sac which leads up to the Lyon Street Steps. The area is bordered to the west by a mature forest of pine, cypress, and eucalyptus trees which the army began planting in the Presidio in the 1880’s. To the north is Crissy Field, originally a rich salt marsh at the bay’s edge and now a wildlife sanctuary. Just beyond is the bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Marin Headlands. All are protected sites within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA), one of the largest urban national parks in the world, and featuring virtually every recreational possibility imaginable, as well as cafés, restaurants, and a spa. In the opposite direction, there are the boutiques, restaurants, and cafés on Union Street and, a little further, those on Chestnut Street. Close by is Miley Playground, the neighborhood’s hidden treasure for families with young children.
Description: Rare offering! This mid-century home is located on one of the best blocks in Cow Hollow – the flat, tree-lined, last block of Green St. 2863 Green offers a flexible floor plan. As shown today, the marbled entry foyer leads up to the expansive living room with a focal, sandstone-faced fireplace and two sets of French doors that open to Juliet balconies with lovely streetscape views of leafy Sycamore trees and elegant homes. Across the foyer, the spacious formal dining room features a verdant garden view and French doors that open to the south garden patio and beautiful, private garden.
