From the curb, this impeccable three-story home on the north side of Alamo Square Park appears to be a bastion of 19th-century San Francisco classicism, its original 1889 façade having been faithfully restored.
A recent renovation led by Jensen Architects and DrömHus General Contractors has transformed the interior of the home with an incredible attention to detail, creating a contemporary floor plan highlighted by large open spaces and incredible light.
Beyond the street and behind the façade, a layered contemporary composition unfolds, with expanses of glass, sliding screens of laser-cut aluminum, vaulted ceilings, and at the heart, a dramatic sculptural staircase with handsome masses of wood alternating with light-filled apertures to create a seemingly rotating form.
Surrounding it is approximately 4,640 square feet of living space exemplifying consummate contemporary style: four serene bedrooms; four and one-half baths; a sleek modern kitchen with an island and top-of-the line appliances; numerous spaces for living, dining, and entertaining; a large ground-floor family room or in-law suite with access to the backyard; and a two-car garage.
Details include white oak floors, a gas fireplace and bathrooms clad in Heath Ceramics tile, surfaces of marble, and an elevator connecting all levels.
Light floods in from windows and skylights, where the stairway culminates at a roof deck with a mesmerizing view of the San Francisco skyline. Striking views of the city and Alamo Square Park can be enjoyed throughout the home.
Alamo Square Park is a historic San Francisco landmark — the city’s celebrated “Painted Ladies” are nearby — and includes a playground, walking trails, and a tennis court. The neighborhood, near the bustling Divisadero corridor, features an array of restaurants, shops, and other amenities.
