This Edwardian mansion is steeped in the history of San Francisco. In the early 1900s, architect Julius Krafft designed the home for its original owner, William Little, and in the ensuing years, it has been maintained with impeccable attention to detail.
Renowned designer Holly Hollenbeck of HSH Interiors undertook an extensive renovation, delightfully blending bright colors and bold patterns with the timeless architecture.
The 5,745-square-foot manor has been vibrantly rejuvenated for stylish modern living while retaining stately classic elements, including decorative stained-glass windows, carefully refinished oak floors, and regal moldings, paneling, and staircase railings.
The formal living space encompasses an inviting sitting area and a more classical room with herringbone-patterned solid-oak floors, a fireplace, and views of the park.
The refined formal dining room includes a built-in buffet, a coffered ceiling, and handsome paneled walls.
The kitchen features a delightful combination of old and new, with a stained-glass window, white Carrara marble countertops, and stainless-steel appliances.
The breakfast room features a vintage china cabinet with decorative leaded glass, a period fireplace with eye-catching tilework, windows that fill the space with light.
A grand central staircase with distinctive lighting and a colorful stained-glass window rises to the second level and the three restful bedrooms.
The master suite features a fireplace, built-in bookshelves, an enchanting vista, and an expansive walk-in closet and dressing area.
The en suite bath boasts striking custom tilework, a marble-clad shower, and a freestanding soaking tub overlooking the park.
A second stairway leads to the third level, which includes three bedrooms, a bath, an office and playroom, and a library with built-in bookshelves.
The home’s lowest level includes a generous laundry area, welcome storage, and a flexible space capable of serving a variety of functions. A sunken terrace ideal for alfresco grilling, relaxing, or celebrating and an Astroturfed play area are secluded on the rear of the home.
The city’s celebrated “Painted Ladies” are nearby, and Alamo Square Park, just across the street, is an enduring San Francisco landmark.
