Impressive presence in prime Presidio Heights
The timeless spell of a fairytale château envelops this idyllic home, set on a showcase corner in Presidio Heights. In front of the home lie stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Bay and Presidio. 3498 Jackson’s exceptional presence easily holds its own with the residence next door—one of the most beautiful Maybeck houses ever designed.
Designed in the French Eclectic style by noted Bay Area architect F. Frederic Amandes, 3498 Jackson’s mansard roofs are accented by dormer windows. A lavish wrought iron and glass entry door opens to a captivating world of light-swept parquet floors, delicately muraled walls, tendrilled wrought iron and a remarkable oval staircase that rises through all four levels. Windows everywhere wash the spaces in soft light and frame breathtaking vistas of the bridge, the Bay and city lights. The vast living room is defined by an ultra-wide floor-to-ceiling bay window. The kitchen features a four-burner cooktop island and a sunny breakfast nook.
Upstairs, the bedroom suites are highlighted by a primary retreat with yet another vast bay window that frames the view. Its bath, wrapped in dramatic patterned marble, centers on a luxurious soaking tub with a view. Above, in the lofty middle dormer room, an enchanting nursery worthy of Peter and Wendy awaits.
Once the home of Hills Bros. scion Herbert Gray Hills and his socialite wife, Winifred, the 6,385 square foot residence on a flat block at Jackson and Locust is filled with sought-after classic-age features that are hard to find today. Among them: a superb floor plan with elevator ... breathtaking views from all levels ... two third-level balconies and a rooftop deck ... an ultra-private ground-level garden screened by hedges and shaded by feathery trees. Other highly desirable amenities include a dedicated delivery entrance, a separate caretaker's apartment, a walk-in safe and a four-car garage with ultra-high overhead clearance.
Sequestered between one of the world's most famous outdoor expanses and one of its most iconic cities, this quintessentially private world is San Francisco at its most elegant and welcoming.
