Back in 1998, my husband and I bought a two-unit building and moved into the lower flat and renovated it. We condo-converted the building and eventually moved upstairs and renovated that flat, renting out the lower unit at 233 Presidio Avenue. The lovely family that grew from three to five over 15 years, and who rented the lower flat, gave notice at the end of last year so after much deliberation my husband and I decided it was time to sell. The market is still strong but with interest rates going up, things may change.
233 Presidio Avenue, an elegant 3-bedroom, 2-bath Presidio Heights Edwardian condo with its own private welcoming entrance, is the lower of only two flats in a building constructed sometime between 1902 and 1909 on property originally owned by the Haas family. It lives like a home. This flat was lovingly restored by my husband and me and completed in 2000, fastidiously keeping the period details that attracted us.
It has a large eat-in chef’s kitchen designed by me and featured in Jennifer Roberts’ Good Green Kitchens, where the original Doug fir floors and subdued Shaker cabinets will strike you. The home is filled with many Arts and Crafts architectural details. Yet the appliances are totally modern, including a Nest thermostat, brand new forced-air heater, and some topline appliances updated for this sale. It has a back yard perfect for a barbecue and cocktails by the warmth of the fire table, or for play in a contained area for children.
The price is $2,095,000 and is very easy to show because I live upstairs.:) For more information, go to 233PresidioAve.com.
