Hot Property: Modern flair permeates Presidio Heights Midcentury
A wholly refreshed midcentury south of the Presidio is getting a new owner. The next person holding the keys to this partially detached construction will reign over roughly 4,700 square feet of carefully crafted luxury. The home offers three living levels, as well as a garage with interior access and a small storage area. Inside, all levels are linked by an architectural staircase with floating tread and glass railing. Completed in the mid-1950s, the home retains a smattering of original midcentury finishes, while modern materials play the prominent role. A stylish garage door embellishes the facade, while the interior boasts an open floor plan, a chef’s kitchen and new hardwood flooring. A single family maintained ownership of the home for more than four decades before selling to the current property holder, who updated the home. Some of the most distinct improvements await in a bright kitchen equipped with custom built-ins and professional appliances. The kitchen revolves around an island with a wine refrigerator, a prep sink, bar seating and waterfall edges.
Both the main and upper levels house three bedrooms, while the lower level contains storage spots, a wine cellar and a bonus recreation room. Guests pass through a landscaped garden before reaching the front door of the six-bedroom home. In addition to front and rear gardens, the home also enjoys an idyllic location on a flat block near multiple parks and playgrounds. Presidio Heights Playground and the Presidio’s Julius Kahn Playground are minutes away, while the city views from Alta Plaza Park reside a handful of blocks east. Venture south for the boutiques and restaurants of Laurel Heights, along with the storied Jewish Community Center of San Francisco.
Address: 125 Presidio Ave., Presidio Heights
Price: $6.75 million.
Features: Crisp lines and clean finishes appear throughout this updated midcentury nestled between the Presidio Heights Playground and the Presidio itself. A two-car garage lends additional appeal and functionality to the trilevel construction hosting six bedrooms, multiple decks, and a landscaped yard.
Open home: 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday.
