Regal French Chateau revival in Presidio Heights

Ensconced on a hillside, gazing down across the rooftops all the way to the Bay and Golden Gate bridge, 225 Locust Street is a world of timeless ease and grace.

Three levels of multi-paned windows, traced with tendrilled wrought iron, rise all the way to its mansard roof. The entry, set well above the street, opens to a light-washed realm of high ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors and a graceful staircase to the levels above.

The spacious living room is lit by many multi-paned view windows and warmed by a grand fireplace. In the formal dining room, French doors open to a walled, sun-dappled patio.

The kitchen overlooks this garden setting and adjoins a casual breakfast area. A nearby powder room has an anteroom with guest closet. A bedroom and full bath complete this level.

On the second floor, a large sitting area with a fireplace and built-ins offers an ideal setting for family time. Highlighting the three bedroom suites on this level is a spacious principal bedroom where a sweep of large bay windows frames water views over the rooftops. Nearby is a large, exquisite bath with separate shower. A vast closet/dressing area completes this sumptuous suite.

The third level is home to a sunlit family room with views of the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Two bedrooms, a bath and a darkroom complete this floor.

The street-level garage holds parking for four cars plus a laundry, wine cellar, workshop and au pair room. Located just south of the Presidio, the elite Presidio Heights neighborhood is steps away from some of the city’s most beloved hiking trails and parks.

Listed by the Callan + Sol Team at $7,500,000, it’s a quiet, elegant oasis moments from the heart of San Francisco … but miles away.
