3 Beds 2 Baths 1,642 Sq.Ft.
Let there be light! Welcome to 2503 Post Street, a top-floor, 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in San Francisco’s Lower Pacific Heights neighborhood. Situated on the corner of the block, allowing natural light to bathe the living spaces from all four sides, this designer condo checks all your boxes and then some!
This special home is absolutely packed with quintessential San Francisco charm. From the ceiling medallions to the decorative wainscoting, the gorgeous home, atop a building that was formerly a church, has been thoughtfully renovated throughout. Local interior designer Suzanne Childress collaborated with the current owner on the renovation and the results are breathtaking.
From the entry, the home immediately strikes a nostalgic feel — dating back to the late 1800’s when San Francisco was just taking off. A huge formal living room with gas fireplace and City views has plenty of space to spread out and work-from-home, as the space is large enough to accommodate a home office. The main hall bifurcates the residence, with all three bedrooms and two baths being located off the hall for convenience. A skylight is located above the main stair and new oak hardwoods run throughout.
New gold light pendants hang from the high ceilings in the hallway, drawing your attention back to the home’s great room. This open entertainment space adds just the right amount of modern-day livability that is so highly sought-after in vintage homes. The chef’s kitchen boasts an oversized island with breakfast bar seating for 4-5 people. Custom cabinets with soft-close drawers and designer hardware provide plenty of storage, and under-cabinet LED lights illuminate the marble-patterned quartz counters. The 6-burner Viking range features a commercial-grade hood-ventilation system (Viking Professional) that has a custom metal casing commissioned by a local artist. Other appliances include a Bosch dishwasher, wine cooler, Viking microwave drawer, sink with disposal, and integrated SubZero refrigerator. Beautiful blue-green tiles by Heath Ceramics grace the backsplash, and new pendants hang over the island, completing the magazine-worthy kitchen. It's very clear that no expense was spared!
Open to the kitchen are the family and dining rooms. Both look out toward San Francisco’s impressive skyline. The space is thoughtfully laid out and features custom wallpaper by Phillip Jeffries, floating shelves, and a wall-mounted Sony flatscreen (included in the sale).
During the renovation, many desirable features were added to the home including sound-proofing, dimmable lighting, new light fixtures, custom Roman shades, new kitchen plumbing, and A/V cables terminating at the right locations. The building has a new roof and new hardwoods were run throughout the residence with the exception of two of the bedrooms - which still feature the original softwoods. In-unit laundry is located on the main hall and the home comes with one huge parking space — enough for a car and plenty of space left over for storage.
All in all, 2503 Post is a very rare find, combining the best of old and new in extremely well-executed renovation and design layers. Steps to some of San Francisco’s best dining, nightlife, recreation, and commuting options, the location delivers as well!
