An Impeccable, Family-Friendly Renovation, $4.5M


Where: 138/140 Eighth Avenue, Lake Street
Asking: $4,496,000
Open: Sunday, July 16 from 2:00pm-4:00pm
What: A completely overhauled Edwardian (apparently once a 2-flat structure, given the double address) where the lower flat has become the main living/entertaining space and the upper is now a luxe master suite plus a pair of smaller bedrooms. The ground level has a garage, a bedroom/au pair suite and a family/media room opening to a large grassy yard. With a deck off the living area and a simple but secure roof deck, there’s a generous amount of private outdoor space.

Lake Street (or as local denizens simply call it, “Lake”) is a somewhat lesser known San Francisco neighborhood between two very famous ones, Sea Cliff and Presidio Heights. Stretching a few blocks south of the actual Lake Street, it’s a quiet venue of well-preserved Edwardian houses. This one conceals a fresh, up-to-the-minute interior.

What We Love: The main level has been turned into a chic loft.

Below, the master bedroom and its spa-like bath.

The lovely guest bedroom/au pair suite is on the lower level with the family/media room and garden.
