Entirely rebuilt, this refined, five-level home combines classic San Francisco detailing with an all-new, expanded interior and the latest systems.

Extensive reengineering was required to stabilize the property, requiring us to excavate under the structure, pour a new foundation and perform a full seismic upgrade with Preprufe waterproofing system and 2-story retaining wall. With the zero lot line conditions, protecting the neighboring Victorian was critical as it is the oldest home in Pacific Heights.

An open, formal living and dining space occupies the front half of the main floor. A spacious great room occupies the back half, with chef’s kitchen and secondary dining area, and a den with sleek floor-to-ceiling shelving, a Montigo linear fireplace, and a wall of windows looking out to the private south-facing backyard.

Smart-home features include a Nest system and Lutron Homeworks automation, and the state-of-the-art infrastructure includes Cat 6E/coaxial wiring, a Gigabit network, Eero Wifi, Sonos multi-zone audio, security cameras, electric vehicle chargers, an elevator, whole-house radiant heat and water filtration systems, and on-demand boilers.

The second floor master suite features a custom walk-in closet, a spa-inspired bathroom with dual vanities and a stylish soaking tub. Each of the three guest bedrooms on the third level includes a closet and a chic ensuite bath.

On the fifth floor the former attic was converted into a gabled roof living space that includes a lounge, office, wet bar, half bath and excellent dormer views. French doors in the rear wall of windows lead to a roof deck with an extensive living garden.


A new two-bedroom apartment at garage level enjoys it own private entrance, an elegant kitchenette, and a seamless walk-out connection between the great room and rear yard.
