Open House Obsession: In Cow Hollow, Green Couch Design Re-Invents a Family House $5.495M


Where: 2827 Greenwich Street, Cow Hollow
When: Sunday, June 2 from 2:00PM to 4:00PM
What: Designers Jeff and Tray Schlarb took two years to completely re-invent this c.1938 with 4.5 baths and five bedrooms. On a quiet block a few yards from the Presidio, it’s been on the market a few days, asking $5.495M. As the owners of Green Couch Design, the Schlarbs have built a successful design practice creating new spaces for their clients while becoming the go-to stylist/stagers for luxury properties on the market. Here they’ve done both, renovating with a hypothetical family in mind and staging it to live in. So yes, they’ll be quite happy to sell it to you completely furnished– right down to the towels.

With an open stairwell running through the three floors, the main living areas are on the second level, and the designers eliminated the traditional “dining room” in favor of wide open spaces with multiple locations to lounge and gather. In addition to the luxe master suite there are three additional bedrooms and two more baths on the top floor, and the ground floor has a family/media space open to the garden with its own kitchen plus a guest/au pair suite.

At the back of the house, the window wall opens up to a deck overlooking the yard:
