Video House Tour: Traditional storybook home near the Presidio asks $4.2 million


If space and charm are high on your list, then this traditional two-story home on a tree-lined block in Pacific Heights may well check your boxes.

Located just a few blocks from the Presidio's Lyon Street Steps and around the corner from local favorites such as B. Patisserie and Sue Fisher King, the home promises walkability and proximity to nature, not to mention a cozy space to chill in when you want to hide out from the world.

From the curb, Victorian elements (think intricate moldings) blend with modern architectural touches (large windows with bold contrasting trim) in a timeless facade. Park the car in the street-facing garage or traverse the red brick walk-up to step inside.

Entirely updated, the home has high ceilings, and crown moldings and baseboards that nod to its original design.

The picture windows shed natural light throughout the main level where the bright living room has built-in shelving flanking the fireplace and beautiful parquet wood floors that run throughout the house. The adjacent dining room has French bay windows. Counter seating at the back of this room transitions into the small but pretty kitchen with a Carrara marble breakfast bar, subway tile backsplash, and stainless steel double-door refrigerator.

The main level houses three bedrooms, including the master suite with his-and-hers closets, a dressing room, and garden views.

Downstairs, you'll find the fourth bedroom and media room. The garden and patio are ready to be planted—just add a fire pit to create the perfect outdoor sanctuary.
