Walk-Through

A bold juxtaposition of historic pedigree, contemporary livability, and rigorous attention to detail resulting in a new level of visionary style, aesthetic, and execution.

Set on one of the most significant cul-de-sac locations of San Francisco’s Pacific Heights, the prominent Vallejo Street home—designed and built in 1916 by famed architect George Applegarth as a wedding gift for his bride—has been fully renovated and rebuilt with an unwavering rigor of sophistication and 21st century living. One of the most acclaimed and noteworthy San Francisco Architects, George Applegarth made 2775 Vallejo his own home and the current owner is only the second owner. Applegarth’s most noteworthy projects include the Spreckels Mansion and the California Palace of the Legion of Honor. Built in the Italian Renaissance style, 2775 Vallejo is a model of restrained Beaux-Arts classic elegance with symmetry, perfect proportions, and columned entry. The crisp façade, nearly 49’ wide and punctuated with large windows, acts as an unassuming enclave overlooking the San Francisco Bay.

The home presents a tailored modern aesthetic, equally enjoyed for contemporary family lifestyle and elegant entertaining venue. The primary level, with outlooks to the Golden Gate Bridge over a charming landscape of Italianate red tile roofs to the north and a level garden with mature landscaping to the south, is the hub of the home. Vintage Fortuny fabric lines the formal dining which sits symmetrically opposite the formal living room. The carefully preserved 110-year old heirloom coffered ceiling with a Pietro Cardosa Brancusi-inspired fireplace are visual focal points. A large great room hosts a versatile family room, family dining area, custom bar, and open kitchen plan, with Italian sliding doors to level the south garden. The fireplace here, flanked by a Venetian plaster surround and backlit built-in book cases, anchors the space in a hushed luxury.

The well laid out bedroom level features 4 guest/family suites, all with en-suite bathrooms, custom black-out drapery, and picturesque views of either the Golden Gate Bridge or landscaped south garden. The bedrooms center around a family foyer with custom built-in cabinetry. Full second laundry room adjoins.

The upstairs Master Retreat spans the entire top floor, with the ultimate in privacy, views and space. A graceful master foyer, centered around a spiral Venini Venetian chandelier, fronts the private adult oasis. The bedroom features full-span views of the Golden Gate Bridge through floor to ceiling windows, a contemporary juxtaposition to the iconic Applegarth architecture below. The master glassed in corner office with full-span Golden Gate Bridge views also enjoys the soothing greenery of the lovely garden below. Tall oversized floor to ceiling door openings allow open vistas north, west and south from this Master Suite remembered for the most rarefied and stunningly beautiful setting!

Stepped back twenty feet from the exterior façade, the Master space offers complete privacy, while maintaining extraordinary outlooks and an oversized terrace spanning the width of the home. A huge walk-in closet, with custom cabinetry and a large island with built-ins, leads to an oversized bathroom with shower window opening to a lovely garden and clad in Pietra Cardosa marble.


LOWER LEVELS
Fully flexible for family, entertaining, or catering, the lower level of the home features an independent multipurpose room with kitchen and bath, ideal for a home gym, children’s play room, au pair quarters, or catering kitchen. A separate entrance for staff or children directly to the mudroom adds to the ultimate versatile and practical floor plan.

Two independent garage spaces feature interior access to the home, the primary space with direct elevator access to all floors as well as garden access for landscaping needs.
