This striking classic Eastlake rowhouse (ca. 1885), one of a pair of twin houses, is located on a tree-lined Pine Street block, well known for its many handsome Victorian homes. Its facade is well preserved and beautifully detailed with a prominent columned portico, highly decorated square bay, bracketed cornice, and stairs with bold balustrades and newel posts. Beyond the original front doors with stained glass is an entryway and eight beautifully painted rooms: living room, formal dining room, kitchen, office, sun room, three bedrooms and two baths. The kitchen is well designed, with pale granite countertops, cream colored cabinets, new stainless appliances, and hardwood flooring. Both bathrooms are remodeled to suit the era, one with marble mosaic floors, nickel fixtures, and stained glass. The sunroom and office open to a sunny deck with lovely views of the park like space created by the neighbors' yards. Rooms are spacious (12 foot ceilings) with original detailing, such as two carved marble fireplace surrounds, plaster cornices, ceiling medallions, elaborate door and window moldings, and a spectacular flashed glass interior door. The floor plan is excellent and filled with light.
Downstairs is a legal one bedroom apartment, currently used by the sellers, also ideal for an office or rental. There is a large one car garage with good storage. Systems have been updated with newer electric service, copper supply plumbing, new water heaters, and two forced air furnaces. The foundation is now concrete. This immensely charming house is in move-in condition and a rare example of intact Victorian architecture, carefully restored.
Lower Pacific Heights, the Pine and Bush St corridor, is a highly desirable North Side neighborhood known for its great Victorian architecture. It has good weather, and is close to three excellent shopping areas: Laurel Heights (on California St), Fillmore St, and Sacramento Street. And only 3 blocks from the new JCC facility, with its world class gym. The California St express bus, only one block away, goes directly to the financial district.
