This four-bedroom Mediterranean brings a Pacific Heights quality to the finer-climate side of the Bay. Exquisitely tucked in Crocker Highlands, the three-level home opens to balconies and a level composition of brick terrace and private garden buffered by a wooded expanse. Refined and radiant living spaces include a tremendously appointed heart-of-the-home kitchen, bedrooms including master suite together on one level, two full baths plus powder room, family and media bonus rooms in addition to architecturally alluring formal living and dining rooms.
The home’s exalted facade and grounds capture the essence of a Mediterranean villa. An arch motif carries from soaring windows to the arcaded entry porch, combining with decorative ironwork and barrel-tile roof. Regal approaches, a brick walk parallels a ribbon-style driveway, meeting detached garage beyond an iron gate.
Throughout the interior, renovations dovetail with time-honored Twenties facets. The kitchen, a renowned restauranteur’s discerning creation, fuses a classic aesthetic with contemporary capability. Professional-caliber appliances integrate amid cabinetry with cachet and Calacatta Gold work-of-art marble slabs adorning counters and massive multifunction island. A stunning space for congregating and creating, the island invites a crowd, as does the breakfast area, which connects via French doors to an awning-covered deck.
Bedrooms are noteworthy for scenic outlooks and walk-in closets. Plushly endowed, the master suite with Juliet balcony presents a view to the Bay and especially spacious walk in. In the hall bathroom, hexagonal tile and a claw-foot tub generate consummate vintage appeal, while the powder room connects to the kitchen physically and stylistically.
On the lower level, a wet-bar-equipped family room plus media room provide separate spaces for casual indoor-outdoor enjoyment. Abundant storage and laundry facilities also occupy the lower level.
