Located one block away from the boutiques of tony Fillmore Street, this extensively remodeled Lower Pacific Heights abode, located at 2115 Bush, woos passersby with its iron-fenced garden with boxwood hedges, brick walk way, and Victorian facade, all of which are illuminated come nightfall by starlight globe lighting dangling from a redwood tree. (A delicately campy touch in an otherwise stuffy neighborhood.)
Inside you will find four bedrooms, four and a half baths, and approximately 3,500 square feet. The double-parlor living room features an illuminated cove ceiling. Marble fireplaces grace the living room, the formal dining room, and the master bedroom. The staircase still has its original wood banister. The rear yard comes with water element, deck, and fire pit. There’s even a screening room.
But perhaps the most alluring, at least for folks who fawn over San Francisco architecture, is the view of Cottage Row from the home’s upstairs deck. Downright adorable.
Which isn’t to say the aforementioned home for sale pales in comparison. Au contraire. This Victorian, which dates to 1900 or before (city records were destroyed during the fire following the 1906 earthquake, hence the blanket 1900 date given to many Victorians) is one of the most precious specimens on the block.
