Designed by Albert Farr (who, in addition to creating works in Sea Cliff, Pacific Heights, and St. Francis Wood, designed Jack London’s Wolf House), this Belvedere home measuring 5,574 square feet is arguably one of the Bay Area’s most gorgeous homes, period.

It’s up for grabs for a slimmed down price of $7.577 million. The North Bay home originally landed on the market in May 2019 for $7.995 million, but the price has since dropped by $418,000, enough to keep a half dozen expert journalists employed.

Details inside the circa-1904 home include intricate woodwork throughout the abode, including built-ins, paneling, and exposed beams. The foyer and staircase, with its original wood pained white, are particularly show-stopping.

There are, of course, views of the Bay and Angel Island, which are typical for most properties in the tony island of Belvedere, made all the more plentiful by the home’s abundance of windows.

The house at 334 Golden Gate Avenue comes with six bedrooms and four and one half bathrooms, plus a one-bedroom, one-bathroom detached guest suite, wine cellar, and wood-burning fireplaces. Delightful.

The listing is through Shana Rohde-Lynch of Compass.
