Remodeled with the greatest attention to detail, this upper unit affords a way of life that is completely unique: refined, urban, cozy and livable.
The unit's gracious entry leads you to a light-filled living room with expansive east-facing windows. The original working fireplace hearkens to the building's 1924 era and creates a special focal point for this spacious room.
The formal dining room is perfectly positioned for entertaining, situated nicely between the living room and kitchen. The room is imposing with its high ceiling, recessed lighting and beautiful original ceiling motif.
The kitchen, taken down to the studs and completely remodeled, is a chef's and entertainer's dream. Honed marble counters, new hardwood floors, custom cabinets, top of the line appliances, hewn woodwork and exquisite metal finishes, all together, will reveal how functionality and tranquility can work in subtle concert. The corner banquette for in-kitchen dining is a charming, and practical, touch and the floor to ceiling bar adds the perfect finish to this most social of rooms.
The two bedrooms come with new windows, designer lighting and, in the master bedroom, a closet with custom built-ins.
Adjacent to the bedrooms you will find the bathroom and further down the hall the powder room, both with custom shelving and completely remodeled with refined design, style and living in mind.
The unit comes with beautiful refinished hardwood floors and new custom (and designer) lighting throughout, as well as custom window treatments. There is generous storage throughout including a hall linen closet and a large walk-in front hall closet with custom shelving. There is an in-unit washer/dryer with storage above.
In the garage, where the unit comes with two deeded tandem parking places, you will also find copious amounts of shared storage in addition to a large, deeded storage room. Outside is a newly designed and landscaped backyard with barbecue and plenty of room for seating and entertaining. Manicured plantings and a thriving herb garden surround the space.
The walkability of this property is one of its best qualities. You are minutes to Fort Mason (and their weekend Farmer's Market), Crissy Field (and the Golden Gate Bridge), Chestnut, Union and Fillmore Streets and Russian Hill and North Beach. Public transportation is one block away and the immediate area is flat for bicycle and scooter riders alike.
This property is the very embodiment of pride of ownership: the building has been painted, there is a new roof, new windows and a new boiler. And its locaton in this charming pocket of the Marina is not on liquefaction.
Refined Marina living: inside and out.

With close proximity to the beach, spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and the Golden Gate Bridge, and convenient access to shopping and dining, it’s easy to see why the Marina District is considered to be one of San Francisco’s Best Places to Live.
Located approximately three miles north of Downtown San Francisco, the Marina is where affluence and history combine to create a truly unique neighborhood. You will find a variety of beautiful homes and condos in the Marina District, including Mediterranean-style villas and upgraded row houses with their own ground-floor garages.
The Marina District is in an ideal location for those who love the ocean, but still want to live near the heart of San Francisco. Residents of the Marina District are just a 20-minute bus ride from the Financial District, and less than a 40-minute bus ride from Google headquarters. The base of the Golden Gate Bridge is less than a mile from the Marina District, and the Palace of Fine Arts, one of the Marina’s most historic landmarks and an architectural marvel, is just a few blocks away.
If you love the outdoors, the Marina District is within a few blocks of Crissy Fields, a lush greenscape that is perfect for variety of activities. The beach provides majestic views of the ocean and the Golden Gate Bridge, and is ideal for kitesurfing, kite flying, running, or just laying back and soaking in the sun.
Residents of the Marina District can take care of just about everything they need within a few blocks of their doorstep. Fort Mason offers a weekend Farmer's Market, restaurants, shops and loads of open space ideal for walks and picnics. The Safeway located on the corner of Marina Boulevard and Buchanan Street makes it easy to keep your refrigerator and pantry full, and the nearby U.S. Post Office will help you with any package and mailing needs. Anytime you need a new iPhone or Apple Watch, the Apple store on Chestnut Street will ensure you always have convenient access to the latest technology.
Some of the City's best neighborhoods can be reached, in just a few minutes' time, by walking in practically any direction from the Marina. To the east is Russian Hill and North Beach, to the south is Cow Hollow and Union Street with Fillmore in Pacific Heights just beyond that and to the west is the Presidio.
