163 25th Avenue
Meticulous modern design and state-of-the-art amenities combine to create sophisticated and stunning single-family home offering close to 3,000 square feet of living space on one level. Built in 1967 on a double wide lot, and recently remodeled with the highest standards for ease-of-living and attention to detail, this 3-bedroom, 3 and one half-bathroom property provides a leading-edge and luxurious living experience in San Francisco’s Lake Street District.
Enter the house up a sleek set of stone stairs flanked by native grass landscaping and stainless-steel railing to be greeted by a tiled outdoor veranda extending the entire length of the front-facing facade. A double width front door provides access to a formal entrance foyer, with custom light fixture, and brand new distinctive wide plank chocolate hardwood flooring which graces every room of the home.
To the left of the entrance is a spacious formal living room offering a contemporary “walk around” gas fireplace. With a striking black granite hearth, the fireplace serves as the central focal point for the room; a wall of windows and sliding doors with plantation shutters provide seamless indoor-outdoor access to the front veranda.
The living room opens to a traditional formal dining room designed with ample space for entertaining. At one end of the room a large sliding glass door provides access to the veranda; while at the opposite end a custom built-in with marble pass-through to the kitchen adds a touch of refined elegance.
A gorgeous and fully equipped Chef’s grade professional kitchen is to the right of the dining room. With top-of-the-line appliances, this remodeled eat-in kitchen goes above and beyond the standard range of luxury amenities to provide every modern convenience available today. Appliances include a 6-burner Viking range with grill, double Viking ovens under professional grade hood, double Sub-Zero refrigerators with four separate freezer drawers built-into custom cabinetry below, custom wine rack, oversized stainless-steel sink, and Bosch dishwasher, all seamlessly integrated around a center island topped with brand new Caesarstone countertops.
The kitchen is additionally accented by a cozy built-in banquette in the corner flanked by two marble-topped side cabinets and includes a large walk in-pantry with adjacent wet bar.
Step through the kitchen to a bright and spacious family room with two skylights overhead. This innovative room is outfitted with two floor-to-ceiling walls of custom built-ins providing integrated shelving for entertainment, consoles connecting to surround sound, two fully contained built-in desks concealed behind pocket doors and a queen-sized pull-out Murphy bed. A third wall offers floor-to-ceiling windows and a glass slider providing access to a peaceful side yard with green slate patio and eaves overhead for sheltered outdoor living. The common living space is complete with a powder room in adjacent hallway offering marble countertop.
Three serene and private ensuite bedroom retreats make up the back end of the property. The first bedroom includes plantation shutters on southern-facing windows and bathroom with shower over tub, Kohler amenities and light gray tile. Guest bedroom number two provides a glass door leading to the rear garden, separate linen closet, full bathroom and an outfitted double closet.
The master bedroom at the northwest corner of the home is intentionally designed for modern comfort and livability, with light filtering in from two directions; an expansive walk-in closet is outfitted with ample storage to easily absorb two separate wardrobes; a wall of floor-to-ceiling built-ins provide organized displays for housing entertainment and personal items.
A well-appointed master bath offers marble tiling around a jacuzzi tub, a separate glass enclosed shower with rainwater showerhead, dual sinks surrounded by marble countertops, and marble flooring. Two glass sliding doors from both the bathroom and bedroom provide seamless access to the garden, where mature trees shade a raised corner deck featuring a hot tub and outdoor speakers.
From a stairway in the kitchen access a large two-car garage below with ample space for parking two full-sized SUV’s. Maytag washer and dryer, utility sink, four storage units, and an additional refrigerator & freezer are also provided here, completing a full range of modern amenities and conveniences.
Coveted Lake Street District location offers prime access to San Francisco’s best green spaces; Just one block from the Presidio, a stroll to the Legion of Honor Museum, Land’s End hiking trail, Golden Gate Park or the quaint shops and restaurants on Clement Street.
