Featured home: 3249 Jackson Street in San Francisco

Classic and refined Queen Anne Victorian in Presidio Heights

37559537Where: 3249 Jackson Street, Presidio Heights, San Francisco (listing | tour)

Presidio Heights masterpiece extensive remodel. Three-level six bedroom, 4.5 bath with in-law, media room, large rear deck, patio/yard, and two car garage. Fabulous reconfigured kitchen-family room, generous formal dining room and lovely master suite.

3249 Jackson Street was last on the market in mid-2012, and ultimately sold off-market in 2013. Subsequently, the home was leased for the better part of a year, and since late 2014, has been undergoing an extensive remodel.

Built in 1898, the three story, 5600+ square foot Queen Anne Victorian home still sports its original intrinsic character, and to those having only a vague memory of the property, from the outside it may appear that nothing much has changed. But please, don’t judge the book by its cover, as this early Presidio Heights home now has a vastly updated and improved interior including many modifications, some visible, and many others, not.

In addition to several refined architectural touches, the main floor includes a gracious gallery-style entry hall, formal living room with fireplace, study, powder room, office, formal dining room, a completely re-configured kitchen/ family room with fireplace, expanded lighting and new hard wood flooring. This one is a great set-up for extended family.

Upstairs, the Master Suite was torn down to the studs. Not only does it feature a fireplace and exterior deck, there is now a grand master bathroom and separate wardrobe area. An on-demand hot water system serving upstairs was installed, and the hallway bath was completely redone, as well. Two additional bedrooms round out this level.
