Hot Property: Pacific Heights condo on the market for the first time in more than 25 years

Elegance abounds in a Pacific Heights penthouse that’s on the market for the first time in more than 25 years.

“It’s a great listing on a flat, tree-lined block near Alta Plaza Park and Fillmore Street,” said Louis Silcox of Pacific Union Real Estate, who is listing the two-bedroom penthouse for $1.95 million. “It’s a place with broad appeal.”

The unit occupies half of the floor it resides on, and it includes original ornamentation like handcrafted woodwork, dramatic fenestration and graceful moldings.

The home opens to a spacious foyer that faces the enticing public rooms. Wide entryways lead to the living and dining rooms, and a guest bedroom is at the end of a long hallway. A wood-burning fireplace with a handsome mantlepiece anchors the living room, where a bay window overlooks Jackson Street. Hardwood floors grace the public rooms, and the kitchen includes Corian counters and an office nook.

The master suite features a series of windows framing city views, a luxurious bath with a soaking tub and dual vanities, and a walk-in wardrobe. The refined space includes custom built-in features and grand proportions, making it ideal for storing that collection of shoes, suits and handbags.
