Stately facade meets modern interiors in Parnassus Heights

Built in 1918, this $2.95 million Parnassus Heights home has an iconic Edwardian exterior.
But 2 Hill Point Avenue was remodeled “down to the studs” by renowned architect Casper Mork Ulnes in 2013 to achieve a modern, open interior. At the time, Mork Ulnes wasn’t yet 40 years old, but his reputation was well established.
That year, he was selected by the Norwegian National Museum as one of “the most noteworthy young architects in Norway.” Two years later, the American Institute of Architects called Mork Ulnes one of “California’s finest emerging talents.” By 2020, he’d been recognized by both The European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture and The Architectural League of New York’s Emerging Voices award.
“This home melds historical elements with contemporary design, including custom walnut cabinetry, a restored original front door of brass and wood, original arched front windows, stairs and banister and a charming 1920’s vintage tub,” Listing agent Jenn Davis of Compass said.

The home features four bedrooms. There are three on the top level with views, as well as a bed and bath on the lowest level (with its own private entrance).
