This large 10 room Eastlake home (ca. 1885) is located on a lovely tree-lined block directly facing Alta Plaza Park, with many elegant Victorian homes as neighbors. The handsome facade is well preserved and beautifully detailed with a portico supported by square paired columns. The portico is connected to a rectangular bay by a distinctive pierced quatrafoil element. Beyond the original front doors and transom window is a large foyer with a dramatic staircase. Immediately to the right is a large double parlor used as a living room and a formal dining room. The kitchen has tile countertops, a charming Wedgwood stove, and a built-in eating area. This level also has a family room and full bath. The second level has four bedrooms and two full baths, with the large front bedroom configured as a master suite. The third level has two rooms and a full bath, with ceilings defined by the peaked roof. Rooms are spacious (11'6" ceilings) with much original detailing, including a handsome banister, two fireplaces, skylight, Lincrusta wainscoting, ceiling medallions, and bold door and window moldings. This is a good floor plan, bright and sunny throughout, with lovely views north from all levels into the park. Downstairs is a studio apartment which opens to the large south yard, and is ideal for an office or an au pair. There is a one car garage, laundry room, and storage.

This is a rare opportunity to buy a large family home on Alta Plaza Park. There are approved plans (by the noted architect, John Maniscalco) and permits to expand rearward, creating a new kitchen, family area, and deck that overlooks the rear yard. Work could begin immediately, eliminating many, many months of design, city approval, and potential neighborhood opposition.


Pacific Heights is a highly desirable residential neighborhood known for its large homes and good weather. Alta Plaza Park is wonderful public space with a newly restored children's playground. This house is just two blocks west of the Upper Fillmore shopping area, with many excellent shops, restaurants, and one of the few remaining neighborhood theaters.
