870 Chestnut | Russian Hill | SOLD $1,650,000

Escape the confines of typical city living in this wonderful urban oasis designed in 1904 by famous San Francisco architect,  Conrad Meussdorffer, and redesigned by Riaz Taplin in 2013. Set in a stunning Russian Hill location perfectly situated to catch amazing Bay views from the sunken living room (with fireplace) or the expansive deck, which spans the entire width of the property, you can find your solitude in the private (exclusive use) garden, or walk the hills of one of San Francisco’s quintessential neighborhoods just out your door.

Entering this home through a private entrance into the welcoming gallery & great room, one is greeted with a modern interior, yet mid-century feel. A delightful open kitchen with bar seating and new high end appliances opens to the large sunken living room with fireplace, hardwood floors, and sliding glass doors to the large deck. The luxurious primary bedroom with en suite bath is adjacent and also opens to the deck.

This wonderful city residence also Includes a second bedroom and bath, laundry room, storage, and one car parking with direct garage access. Tech shuttle buses stop a few blocks away, boats sail by, and freight liners cruise the bay waters. With a Walkscore of 94, how could you pass this up?
