Summary: Nestled at the intersection of Pacific Heights and Cow Hollow, this enchanting 4+BD/2BA garden home blends classic Edwardian architecture with modern updates for a chic cottage ambiance. The setting defines this home where virtually every room has a view, whether of the spectacular English garden, the sparkling bay, Alcatraz, or the exquisite Victorian architecture and verdant grounds of the neighboring Casebolt House, a San Francisco Landmark. Detached on 3 sides, this tranquil home is a light-filled sanctuary. There is a one car garage. This exceptional home offers the opportunity to live comfortably today or to realize your vision with approved renovation plans by EAG Studio. 

Description: The covered porch opens to a charming Inglenook entry with a brick-faced fireplace and bench seat set beneath a tall, mullioned window. At the front of the home is the light-filled living room with partial bay views, a focal fireplace, and a view through the house to the English garden. Across the foyer, the formal dining room features large windows which frame the stunning garden views. Original architectural details include a built-in hutch, a window seat which fills the bay window, wainscoted walls, beamed ceiling, and a brick-faced fireplace. The dining room opens to the adjacent eat-in kitchen which also showcases the garden in addition to views of the Casebolt House and grounds. The delightful chef’s kitchen is equipped with Statuario slab marble counters, double Bosch ovens, Bosch dishwasher, and Thermidor cooktop and hood. A convenient door at the end of the kitchen leads to the garden - an outdoor ‘room’ complete with steppingstones and a meandering brick path leading to a peaceful seating area. 

Upstairs, at the back of the house, the principal suite is shown as a sleeping room with spectacular garden views through large windows flanked with bookcases and an adjacent sitting room equipped with built-in bookcases, a brick-faced fireplace, and a sun-drenched office alcove. The second bedroom has a convenient en suite marble sink. Bay and Alcatraz views are the highlight of the third bedroom (which may be used as the principal bedroom and the currently shown 2-room principal suite may become 2 bedrooms) which also has a fireplace. This extraordinary room has windows on 4 sides and spectacular light and outlooks. Off the hall, a full bath with glass enclosed stall shower, marble-topped vanity, and a classic claw foot tub complete this level.

The lower level with full bath offers flexible space for a guest retreat, media/family room, au-pair quarters, or home office. There is abundant storage space in the basement. The tradesmen’s entrance leads from the basement into the garage for direct access to and from the home. 


Location: Coveted location west of Steiner, between Green and Vallejo, sought after for its picturesque, tree-lined streets, and sunny micro-climate. This block of Pierce is tranquil and flat –features hard to find in San Francisco’s hilly, urban setting. Walk-ability is one of the most desirable factors in today’s lifestyle and 2721 Pierce is ideal for that. In fact, the home boasts a Walkscore® of 96 (almost perfect!) – “a Walker’s Paradise – Daily errands do not require a car.” Residents enjoy easy access to the boutiques, restaurants, and cafés on stylish Union Street. Pacific Heights/Cow Hollow is bordered to the west by the Presidio - a mature forest of pine, cypress, and eucalyptus trees which the army began planting in the 1880’s. To the north is the Palace of Fine Arts, and Crissy Field, originally a rich salt marsh at the bay’s edge and now a wildlife sanctuary and urban park. Just beyond is the bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Marin Headlands. All are protected sites within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA), one of the largest urban national parks in the world, and featuring virtually every recreational possibility imaginable, as well as cafés, restaurants, and a spa. It is no wonder that this location is one of the city’s most desirable.
