Description: The classic Edwardian façade is beautifully enhanced with meticulously tended landscaping and a striking, paneled entry.
Main Level: The spacious foyer separates the living room from the formal dining room. The stylish living room features deep crown moldings, dark herringbone floors with Greek key inset, custom wall coverings, and a dramatic, stone-faced fireplace with decorative wooden mantel. Opposite the living room, floor-to-ceiling French doors with sidelights perfectly frame the verdant garden outlooks from the formal dining room – a sumptuous room with chair rail molding, parquet floors, custom wall coverings, and a focal fireplace. The French doors open to the patio and terraced garden, ideal for indoor-outdoor entertaining. Two archways are open to the gourmet kitchen with coffered ceilings and tranquil garden views. Beautiful Calacatta d’Oro marble graces the counters and the generous island which is inset with a porcelain farmhouse sink. The island has a bar area for casual dining. Gourmet appliances include a stainless Sub-Zero refrigerator and a Viking 6-burner stove with griddle and double ovens. There is ample room for a table for breakfast or informal family dining. Convenient for entertaining, the wet bar features a hammered metal sink, built-in wine refrigerator, and glass-fronted display cabinets. A powder room with a beautiful hammered sink completes this level. Waterworks fixtures extensively used throughout.
Second Level: The sublime master bedroom enjoys partial bay views while facing the cozy fireplace. The en suite, spa-style bath features double porcelain sinks inset into a custom Calacatta d’Oro marble slab vanity. The handsome floor is also finished in Calacatta d’Oro marble slabs bordered with black marble. A large stall shower with glass doors and a private water closet complete this stunning bath. Overlooking the garden are two generous bedrooms, each with a beautiful, custom-finished, en suite bath. One bedroom is shown today as a family room with an en suite bath consisting of a glass-enclosed, black marble steam shower and a black veined marble vanity with inset porcelain sink. The other bedroom has a door to the sunny, south-facing deck. Its beautifully decorated en suite bath features an English style soaking tub and a porcelain pedestal sink.
Third Level: The top floor consists of two additional bedrooms. As shown today, the garden view bedroom is used as a media room/office and features built-in bookcases and a large, south-facing deck. The front bedroom has lovely views of the bay and Alcatraz. Both rooms share the bath situated off the hall which was finished with a porcelain double sink, claw foot tub, classic wainscot, and a traditional floor of hexagonal tiles with decorative border. A laundry room completes this level.
Garage: The garage holds one car and there appears to be expansion potential to enlarge the garage (buyer to independently verify).
