Seller very motivated! Please bring offers! First time on the market in 50 years! This William Hollis designed Victorian was built in 1878 in the Italianate style and still has most of the original detail that made these homes so special. A spacious double parlor serves as living room and study. Beyond is the formal dining room that opens through French doors to a solarium. Adjacent is the kitchen finished in granite countertops, ample cabinetry and 5-burner gas range with stainless hood & backsplash. Both open onto a south-facing deck that overlooks the absolutely stunning Thomas Church-style Garden. A chic powder room finishes this level. Upstairs, the huge master bedroom is bathed in natural light through double hung windows facing California Street. The master features marble fireplace, sitting room and large walk-in closet. A second bedroom has views of Mount Sutro and overlooks the formal garden. A full bathroom finishes this level. Both levels feature soaring ceilings, hardwood floors, multiple fireplaces, decorative wainscotting, finials and plaster ceiling medallions. The lower level has an in-law apartment that faces the garden, interior access to the garage and multi-purpose room with full bath.
