Open House Obsession: Grandly Redone Victorian in Pacific Heights, $4.75MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 1812 Lyon Street, Pacific Heights
When: Sunday, October 19 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm
What: On a quiet Pacific Heights street flanked by other classic Victorians– and recently renovated from top to bottom– this 5-bed, 4-bath, 2-half-bath Victorian retained much of its original character while becoming eminently livable. Below, a relatively formal parlor and dining room survived:
The big kitchen/family room with a deck, plus a pantry:
The master bath is predictably luxe– as it should be:
What We Like: We’re all about the guts of a house and how it works, and this one looks pretty smart– a Nest system, radiant heat, sprinklers. The ground floor, in addition to the garage, mud room and laundry, opens to the back yard and includes an ensuite bedroom, plus a family/media room. So if your family life involves kids and an au pair, you’re all set.
There’s also a 750-bottle wine room (presumably lockable.)
Decked. There’s also a great pentroom on the top floor with a half bath, wet bar, and small terrace (bottom image.)
