Property of the Week: A calm, nature-inspired family home that makes the most of its city location.
By Sophie Killip | February 4 2021
Currently on the market with Team Hatvany at Compass, this mansion in San Francisco is a calm, nature-inspired sanctuary that still makes the most of its city location. Situated in Pacific Heights, the exceptional property features seven bedrooms and a range of outstanding spaces for entertaining; it also boasts amazing views to the bay in the north and San Francisco city to the south.
The front of the house has its own lush greenery, including a collection of planter boxes, hydroponic planting systems and a cascading waterfall fountain with a circular koi pond at the midpoint. Inside, the entry foyer leads to an expansive living room to the right, with a powder room and the grand staircase across from the front door. Standout elements of the living room include built-in bookshelves that frame the large wood-burning fireplace.
On the left lies an open kitchen and family room with an inbuilt speaker system and custom bookshelves. These rooms can be closed off or separated from one another thanks to the built-in pocket doors to allow for more formal entertaining or to create privacy. A home office area lies around the corner from the kitchen and features a built-in desk and cabinetry as well as a skylight to fill the room with bright, natural light.

The open-plan family room also opens out onto the landscaped backyard through multiple French doors; the family room leads directly onto a decked area, with room for outdoor dining at one end and a lacrosse/tennis backboard at the other. Further down the garden is a row of mature trees and plants – a path through these leads to an expansive paved area that is perfect for outdoor entertaining or relaxing in the natural environment.
Upstairs, the second floor houses four of the seven bedrooms, including the master bedroom. Situated at the front of the house, the master bedroom looks out over San Francisco and features an en-suite bathroom and a walk-in closet. Meanwhile, the property’s third floor has two additional bedrooms – one of which has its own outdoor terrace – and a second expansive family room.
Period features can be found throughout this family home, including bordered hardwood flooring and high, beamed ceilings. The property is also equipped with a range of environmentally conscious amenities, including 30 solar panels on the roof, a double helix wind turbine and a generator that serves the house’s main functional areas. It also has a storage and utility room on the lower floor, as well as a car garage that can be accessed from inside the house.
