Handsome Traditional in Jordan Park, $5.2MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 170 Commonwealth Avenue, Jordan Park
What: A classic Edwardian built in 1912 in a neighborhood of handsome, spacious homes, this 4-bed, 4.5-bath property was updated in a close and happy collaboration by the owners, San Francisco interior designer Beth Martin of the Martin Group and the contractors, Thompson Suskind LP.
It’s a prime example of legacy architecture, design and planning coming together, creating a comfortable family home that looks back to the past while totally in the present. The kitchen and dining room have been brought together in one central space between a comfortable formal living room and the family room, which leads to a huge deck.
What We Love: This is a very practical house. The kitchen has two dishwashers, there’s a 3-car garage plus off-street parking, and a private au pair suite on the ground floor. All that practicality notwithstanding, there’s also a luxe and spa-like master bath.
