Virtually all of the reasons people dream of living in San Francisco exist at 158 Eighth Ave. Views, architectural beauty, convenience, luxury and entertainment all await inside the remodeled Edwardian in the city’s Lake district. A panoramic roof deck atop the four-bedroom overlooks the neighborhood and the Presidio Golf Course’s manicured greens and fairways. And the three living levels below the roof deck are equally impressive.

“It’s beautifully appointed and architecturally dazzling,” said Chris O’Connor of Pacific Union Real Estate, who is listing the remodeled property for $4.495 million.

The residence stands proudly amid a row of Edwardians along Eighth Avenue. Dentils, bay windows and columns makeup a facade rich in architectural significance and subtlety. Three door frames in the entry portico offer a subtle reminder of the structure’s prior life as a duplex.

Though fully modernized, the home doesn’t eschew its architectural heritage. In fact, traditional design influenced decisions on finishes throughout the home. One of the most subtle nods to Edwardian decor is found in ceiling-mounted lights with curvaceous, floral outlines. In essence, the fixtures serve as a functional, modern take on ornate plaster medallions.
