Video House Tour: A dashing London-inspired home restored by SF's Michael Hilal asks $5.7 million


Never mind that this stately 1900 home sits at the corner of Clay and Divis, within walking distance to Eliza's, B. Patisserie, and March.

Recently renovated by San Francisco designer Michael Hilal to have English townhome vibes, the house feels like a dapper slice of London.

The 3,690-square-foot house has five bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, all exuding a casual glamour that feels both sophisticated and family friendly.

A large foyer is your first introduction to the residence and functions as a room of its own with a fireplace, space for furnishings, and a dramatic lantern-style pendant light. A wide open doorway leads to the living room with plush built-in window seating and a second fireplace.

On the other side of the foyer is a lounge area for relaxed entertaining alongside the dining room and adjacent kitchen, which is painted robin's egg blue. The kitchen finishes are luxe, including veined Breccia Viola marble countertops, a Mercury gas range, Dacor fridge, a wine fridge, and Fisher & Paykel dishwasher. A powder room, home office, and deck complete the main level.

The second floor houses three bedrooms including the primary suite, where a carved marble fireplace anchors the space. The bathroom has all the spa vibes you'd want with a clawfoot tub and window view, dual sink vanity, and a roomy shower. The walk-in closet is equally fashionable with ample built-ins for storage and a vanity.

Make your way up another level to enjoy the wet bar and roof deck. There are two more bedrooms and a bathroom there.

On the ground floor, a two-car garage makes coming home easy and secure. There's also extra storage and a cellar to keep the house clean and clutter free.
