Welcome to 41 Ford Street! This sensational single family home is situated at the foot of Liberty Hill in San Francisco's Eureka Valley neighborhood. Located on a coveted, tree-lined block, this remodeled home is as elegant as it is brilliantly functional.
Spanning four awe-inspiring levels, the home exudes quality craftsmanship and class at every turn. Gracefully marrying a traditional aesthetic with modern technological amenities, the home pulls off a rare feat - offering its lucky new owners the best of old world and new world lifestyles.
Upon arrival, visitors are immediately impressed by the grandeur of the home and its commanding street presence. Ascending the front staircase to the front door, it becomes apparent that this is no cookie-cutter abode. Stepping into the grand foyer, a classic staircase reaches into the huge voluminous spaces above. Sunlight pours through a huge skylight at the top of the stairwell, bathing the staircase and foyer and creating an uplifting vibe from the first few steps in.
The formal living room is situated at the front of the home and features a gas burning fireplace with marble surround, beadboard ceiling, ornate mouldings, and huge picture windows with transoms above. Adjacent to the formal living room is the formal dining room. This inviting space is the perfect place to host dinner parties and enjoy good times with company. The built-in buffet has a marble counter, mirrored back, and plenty of storage for your best China and silver. Decorative chair rails and wainscoting run the perimeter, warming up this incredible space.
There is a fade from formal to casual as you go deeper into the home. At the rear are an open kitchen / family room space. This area is great for everyday lounging, relaxing and watching movies. The kitchen is outfitted with professional grade appliances, including a 6-burner Wolf range with center griddle and dual oven, professional ventilation hood with heat lamps, twin Sub-Zero units (refrigerator and freezer), a Wolf microwave drawer, and Asko dishwasher. Dual skylights are situated above the larger center island. Custom cabinets with soft-close mechanism are by Jay Rambo and the faces of the twin Sub-Zeros are made to match. Gorgeous, thick marble slab counters, tiled backsplash, breakfast bar seating for four at the center island, stainless steel sink with disposal, integrated silverware trays in drawers, and dedicated rubbish / recycling cabinet round out the package.
The family room and kitchen are adjoined and feature a butler's pantry, complete with sink, Sub-Zero wine refrigerator, and more storage cabinets. A gas fireplace centers the family room and a flat screen TV is perched above. Just to the left of the fireplace is a secret room behind a set of built-in shelves. Inside the room is space for all your entertainment electronics and components, keeping them out of plain view. A sliding door from the family room leads to the deck, which is perfect for al fresco dining and enjoying fresh air. Views of Liberty Hill abound from the kitchen and family room, with City lights climbing up the hillside for a dramatic night time outlook.
The final portion of the main living level includes the powder room, elevator, coat closet and under-stair storage.
The upper level of the home consists of two bedrooms and two baths. Both bedrooms have en-suite baths, and the bedroom at the rear is the exquisite master suite. The master has its own wing of the house and is offset from the street for maximum privacy and serenity. A gas fireplace (with flatscreen mounted above) creates ambiance in the generously sized master, which features dual closets as well as separate built-in armoires and chest of drawers. A large bay window and beadboard ceilings add character to this space and continue into the luxurious master bath. The bath features a skylight, jetted tub, separate stall shower with body jets, dual vanities with thick marble, Hans Grohe fixtures and dual-flush Toto toilet in a private water closet. Speakers are integrated all throughout this space.
The front bedroom is huge and features dual closets with built-in dresser. There is a balconette off this bedroom and an en-suite bath.
The garage level of the home features a second master suite - a gorgeous bedroom at the rear of the building with nicely appointed bathroom. The bath features marble-topped dual vanities and high-end fixtures. The garage itself accommodates at least two cars and features electric car charging and plenty of storage space around the perimeter.
The lower level of the home is flexible in its use. Ideally a bedroom with en-suite bath or entertainment/media room, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination. A wine cellar is located on this level, which is temperature controlled and can fit at least 300 bottles. The lower room opens to the back yard, which is half patio / half turf, and is surrounded by lush succulents, fruit trees, beautifully maintained wood fence, integrated BBQ, and irrigation system.
Some characteristics may be found throughout the entire home. Those include an Elan Home Automation system with touch screens, recessed lighting with programmable scenes, integrated sound system, CAT5e, fine mouldings and Oak hardwoods, a DSC security system with motion sensors, double paned windows, forced warm air heating system, air conditioning, fire sprinklers, heated bathroom floors and central vacuum. Hot water is powered by both electric and solar and comes with two large storage tanks. The home has a modified bitumen roof which is ideal in our climate, as well as solar panels, an electric car-charging station, earthquake upgrades and a steel moment-frame reinforcing the structure.
One of the top few features of this immaculate residence is its location. Ford Street has an online neighbors message board, where they look out for one another and coordinate entertainment such as block parties. This flat, walkable area is flanked by the world-famous historic Castro District to the West, a bustling section of Market Street to the North, Mission Dolores park and some of the best dining in the City to the East, and prestigious Liberty Hill to the South.
With a Walkscore of 98/100, this is one of the most accessible locations to enjoy San Francisco and all of the great things about living in one of the most revered urban environments on the planet. Take care of errands on foot or on bike to places such as Bi-Rite, Whole Foods, Mollie Stones, numerous banks, cleaners and pharmacies. Enjoyable strolls to fine dining await, including nearby Delfina, Starbelly, Tartine Bakery, Hecho, L'ardoise Bistro, Fable, Anchor Oyster Bar, and countless others. Exciting nightlife and entertainment is at your doorstep. Going by public transit? No problem! The underground Muni (K,L,M lines) are close by as well as numerous light rail and bus stops.
