Exquisitely positioned on one of the finest blocks in Presidio Heights, this jewel box home was designed by renowned San Francisco architect Edward Eyestone Young in a style that endures today both for its elegance and sheer livability.
Built in 1922, the Beaux Arts home offers six bedrooms, four baths (and two half baths), a pent room (or the sixth bedroom) with peek-a-boo views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Presidio and Bay, formal dining room, lush garden and large garage level with significant storage and opportunity to expand. The home presents a scale and level of graciousness rarely seen with a large living room with wood burning fireplace and wall of windows facing Jackson Street, an elegant reception hall, a round formal dining room with hand-painted wallpaper depicting a scene from the invention of the hot air balloon in Paris in the late 18th century, and a breakfast room/parlor with direct access to the back deck and garden.
The next level up has five good-sized bedrooms, two of them en suite and one with a half bath. The top floor is home to a large pent room complete with bookshelves, built-in window seat and walls of windows. This floor also has a full bath as well as door access to the large, flat roof. Original, elegant details abound: high ceilings, hardwood floors, wood-carved French mantel, ornamental plaster ceiling design and exterior iron grill detail.
Lovingly and attentively maintained by the same family for 65 years, this special residence is ready for its next chapter.
About the Architect
3625 Jackson Street was designed by the architect Edward Eyestone Young, well known for his collaborative architectural work on homes and apartments for distinguished housing developers and private clients in the early decades of the 20th century.
Many of his single-family home designs are sprinkled in clusters in Pacific Heights, Presidio Heights, and the Lake Street district. Consistent and noteworthy elements in many of his designs include wonderful rooftop balustrades, quoins that add dimensionality to building corners, and distinctive wrought iron window accents, balconies, and entry doors.
Young is also known for designing apartment buildings, which include the Park Lane Apartments at 1100 Sacramento and the prestigious 9-unit Co-Op building at 2298 Pacific Avene at Webster Street.
Several of Young’s designs were constructed by F.R. (Fred) Grannis, a “Builder of Distinctive Homes”, including 3625 Jackson Street, which lists Young as the Architect and Grannis as the builder on a Building Permit issued by the City of San Francisco in 2021, with completion of the project believed to have been in 2022.
