Gorgeous and unique Victorian home with a variety of flexible layouts and options for entertaining, family gathering and modern living. The home has been beautifully renovated by an incredible local interior designer with stylish fixtures and finishes throughout.
Entering through a gate at the top of a flight of stairs, one encounters an idyllic, enclosed front deck/patio with wonderful southern sunlight, seating area, lush planters and landscaping.
A gracious entry reveals wonderful original period details including wainscotting with paneling, soft wood pine flooring, intricate floral bannister woodwork, archways, and crown and baseboard moldings.
The living room is illuminated by oversized Bay windows facing south to the patio, bringing in great sunlight. It is adjacent to an elegant formal dining room, complete with gas fireplace with plaster surround and wood mantelpiece. This room flows into the family room, which is also equipped with a gas fireplace and wood mantlepiece and is open to the kitchen and backyard.
The kitchen is truly stunning, equipped with deluxe appliances including a Bertazzoni six-burner range and hood, Bosch dishwasher, wine refrigerator, and more. Chic white subway tile with dark grout complements the white cabinetry and white marble countertops. Display cabinets overhead present an intricate leaded window design, and a large center island houses a second sink and allows for a breakfast bar overhang and informal dining. The back wall has a stylish exposed brick wall and contains built-in pantry cabinets as well as a powder room lined with fashionable San Francisco-inspired wallpaper.
Off the kitchen, windowed French doors open to a wonderful, decked backyard, with a built-in banquette for outdoor dining around a firepit table, lattice surround for privacy, and beautiful built-in planters and landscaping.
Upstairs are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a fantastic primary suite. The main stairs are illuminated overhead by a skylight and on the north side is a wonderful bedroom with window overlooking the garden. The middle bedroom has a built-in desk, and both bedrooms share a sleek hallway bathroom with a handsome quartz-topped vanity, a whimsical turquoise mosaic tile floor, and a glass-enclosed shower over tub. Also on this floor is a stacked washer/dryer and a deep linen closet.
The primary suite is expansive and boasts a bay of south-facing windows with a built-in window seat, as well as a gas fireplace with wood surround. Ensuite is a generous walk-in closet with built-ins, and a sophisticated bathroom with his-and-her quartz-topped vanities, a glass-enclosed shower, wainscoting detail, mosaic tile floor, brass fixtures and black and white décor.
On the lower floor are a number of multi-purpose rooms which provide an extraordinary level of flexibility for working from home, family gathering, home exercise, and hosting guests!
Stairs lead down to an incredible front office, outfitted with rich walnut wood tones. A butcher block bar provides the ultimate entertaining spot, with a mini fridge as a built-in cabinet (fits a kegerator perfectly!) adjacent. A gorgeous walnut barn door conceals a wine storage closet or file storage. This room has ample space for a large office as well as area for entertaining clients or a conference table, commercial zoning should you wish to conduct business, and a separate street entrance.
Towards the other end of this level the owners created a fabulous media room with large flat screen tv, a workout space with a storage closet and windowed wall, and a full 1 bedroom/1 bathroom guest suite complete with a bedroom and ensuite bathroom. The pristine bathroom has been newly outfitted with a quartz-topped vanity and glass enclosed shower.
Out the back of the home and across the breezeway is an additional (unwarranted) space that has been built-out as an au pair/guest suite, with separate direct street access. The room has a wonderful double closet with sliding doors, a walk-in large storage closet, and a pristine ensuite bathroom with a glass-enclosed walk-in shower.
Located in the heart of Lower Pacific Heights, 2186 Sutter is just five blocks from the oasis of Alta Plaza Park, two blocks to the shops and fine dining on Fillmore Street, and walkable to excellent schools, transportation, Mollie Stone’s, and more.
