The once stately turn of the century Victorian has experienced a rebirth for elegant up-to-date urban living in the 21st Century. The prestigious firm of Artthaus with Riaz Taplin has created a light-filled, spacious & exciting interior environment with a strong connection to the exquisitely landscaped east garden.
Traditional finishes and materials have been interwoven throughout the house, effecting an aesthetic consistent with its historic lineage, along with modern elements to bring lightness and sophistication. State-of-the-art systems--entertainment, communications, energy efficiency and security--have been carefully thought out for enjoyment and comfort.
The larger “heart of the house” is the entire length of Upper Fillmore, a walker’s paradise: fine restaurants, casual cafés, exciting contemporary fashion, personal services and fitness facilities, the nearby Alta and recently renovated Lafayette Parks to Japan Center and the Fillmore Jazz District. You couldn’t ask for more of a central location!
