What: A fully renovated flat in a classic Edwardian building, originally designed by Edgar Matthews in 1905 and completely reinvented by Dumican Mosey Architects in 2012. Mathews worked during the boom years on either side of 1900, designing mostly homes for prosperous merchants– elegantly restrained essays in Queen Anne and Tudor in shingle and stucco. Dumican Mosey Architects is best known for high-end renovations and stunning new homes; their website is full of houses around town you’ve no doubt admired. And driving north on Divisadero Street, you’ve also no doubt noticed Mathews’ elegantly shingled, bay windowed apartment house on the right, going uphill into Pacific Heights.
What We Love: Dumican Mosley took these grandly-scaled spaces and made them even grander with an enfilade that stretches across the entire front of the flat, from the library to the dining room, and opening up the dining room to a long view of the kitchen. That said, it’s no longer a 3-bedroom flat, but transformed into a grand couple’s apartment.
The master suite is sybaritic, with a wonderful bathroom and plenty of closet space.
