Welcome to 2199 Divisadero in Pacific Heights! This lovely home has just been restored by the very talented Michael Hilal (featured in publications such as Architectural Digest & Dwell). Combined with the staging layer by Mark Lopez Designs, the result is positively breathtaking.
The London Townhouse aesthetic is intended to keep the antique charm of the home intact while adding modern touches throughout. Original details, such as wainscoting, ceiling medallions, and ornate moldings, have been thoughtfully brought back to life while maintaining their natural patina.
The five-bedroom, three and one half bath home is spread across four levels, including a garage level with storage, main living level, and two bedroom levels, topped off by an epic roof deck with panoramic views.
Set on a corner lot at Clay and Divisadero, the home receives amazing natural light. Huge picture windows and towering ceilings provide an uplifting atmosphere that is as inviting as it is expansive.
The grandeur is apparent at the outset, as stepping through the front door into the grand foyer sets the tone for an amazing experience that awaits. Graced by a fireplace and boasting a new Ruemmler silk shade chandelier, the foyer makes quite a first impression, whether you’re coming home from a busy day or receiving guests.
Just off the foyer is the formal living room, the perfect place for cocktail parties and everyday relaxing alike. This awe-inspiring space is centered by a gas fireplace and features period details such as Ionic column moldings, picture rails, a built-in window bench with custom cushions, and an ornate mantle.
The vibe transitions to casual moving towards the rear of the home, where you’ll find an open kitchen, dining, and family room area. This huge, open space features new floor-to-ceiling custom walnut veneer cabinetry and new fixtures, and is all anchored by the newly redone kitchen.
Centered by an oversized island and boasting new high-end appliances, including a gas-fired Mercury range / oven by AGA, built-in Dacor refrigerator / freezer, built-in Kitchenaid wine fridge, and Fisher & Paykel dishwasher, this stunning room is a feast for the eyes. Gorgeous veined Breccia Viola marble countertops punctuate the space, and custom varnished cabinets finished in parma gray provide storage with style. An attached deck provides an outdoor living space off the kitchen area.
Rounding out the main living level are a home office with original stained glass wall and Paul McCobb pendant, and a powder room with fluted plaster walls, brass hardware, custom Carrara marble floating sink, and Greige marble hex mosaic tile.
Ascending to the main bedroom level, the London Townhouse feel continues. The newly reconfigured primary suite is well-scaled, features a bay window, fireplace, sitting room, and newly renovated bathroom. The bedroom and sitting areas boast new Aerin plaster light pendants, a classic touch.
No expense was spared in the primary bathroom, which features Watermark sink, shower, and tub fixtures. Rejuvenation hardware, plastered walls, and a porcelain vintage-inspired tub create a spa-like environment. A huge walk-in closet with built-ins and custom vanity clad in Calacatta patterned Dekton are just some of the features.
Down the main hall are two nicely sized bedrooms, which share a jack-and-jill bath, and a laundry closet. The bath has been outfitted with textured black and white ceramic tile in a stacked pattern, black marble hex tile on the floor, and Rich Brilliant and Willing dimple sconces.
The third level features two additional bedrooms and a full bath. Gorgeous views of the surrounding area, including south towards Sutro Tower, abound. The conveniently located bar is adjacent to the roof deck. A cream marble counter contrasts gorgeously with card green walls. Travertine lines the floor and brass cabinet pulls imported from Australia add another layer of sophistication. A Kitchenaid beverage fridge saves trips down to the kitchen, as the roof deck will most certainly be a destination for residents and guests alike. The 400+ square foot outdoor living area enjoys majestic views and a glass windbreaker. Back inside, a Nuura diamond embossed chandelier descends the dramatic staircase opening.
Improvements throughout include new plumbing, electrical, light fixtures, recessed lighting, light switches, outlets, carpeting, and paint. The hardwoods have been refinished in a walnut finish.
