Two Pacific Heights homes within about five blocks of each other just came on the market for the same sticker price: $17 million.

But the homes — both recently listed by high-end Compass specialist Nina Hatvany and her team — differ when it comes to design and style, something best left for a taste test for the eyes.

The first property at 2500 Broadway is a trophy Victorian on a premier corner lot at Broadway and Pierce in Pacific Heights that was originally commissioned in 1894. Renovated with the help of architect Houman Sharif and designer Kendall Wilkinson, there are acute period details including rich wood paneling throughout, contrasting with sleek contemporary fixtures and custom fittings.

There are a total of six bedrooms and five full and two half bathrooms across four levels, which are accessible via elevator. The main level boasts sophisticated entertaining spaces including a formal dining room with fireplace, a large living room, a family room with a view breakfast area, and an open chef’s kitchen with views of the bay.

Upstairs are four bedrooms and three bathrooms on a floor, including a primary view suite complete with a dressing room, walk-in closet, and spa-like marble bathroom. On the top level is a lounge with sweeping vistas, skylights and a walk-out roof deck. The lower-level features two additional guest bedrooms, a hallway bathroom with shower over tub and a powder room, a wine cellar, a tradesmen’s entrance, and a three-car garaged parking.

In addition, a spacious media room opens directly to a landscaped back garden: a fabulous oasis for entertaining and recreation.

Now on to our second luxury home for a buyer with a taste for modern: 2850 Divisadero St. This five-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion is bejeweled with a roof deck and cozy private garden, a must in our brave new pandemic-era world. With sprawling square footage of 7,300 square feet, amazing light, world class views, high-end designer finishes and home automation, the place is fit for both indoor and outdoor entertaining.

The main level has a dramatic entry with floating main staircase, front living room, contemporary kitchen/family room with dining area adjacent to a glass-enclosed wine cellar. Sliding doors lead out to the private garden with fire pit. On the second level are three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a playroom or media room and laundry room. On the third level is a full primary suite with a primary bedroom with Golden Gate Bridge and bay views, an ensuite spa bathroom, huge closets, an office, and a large den which could be used as a fifth bedroom.

The fourth level is an entertaining area with a family room and fireplace, dining area, and seating area with views. A fully equipped entertaining kitchen which opens to a deck with a hot tub and grill is also included.
