This classic Edwardian home sits just steps away from the natural beauty of the Presidio National Park on one of the most coveted blocks in the lovely Lake Street neighborhood. Detached on all sides with many over-sized windows, this light-filled home offers a traditional floor plan of welcoming, comfortable rooms and sightlines that stretch from the pretty, tree-lined block back to the private, serene garden.
Sunlight pours through large windows into the gracefully proportioned living room. Both the living room and formal dining room feature fireplaces and built-in cabinetry and serve as lovely places to entertain family and friends.
The spacious family room features multiple assets: an additional eating area with wet bar and a casual seating area with a fireplace and built-in cabinetry. Open the French doors and step into the level garden; breathe in the fresh air and listen to and see the natural world around you. This is California living – warm sun on the deck by day and cool evenings warmed by a fire in the fireplace. Enjoy hosting a casual BBQ, take pleasure in quietly observing your children playing outdoors, sit and read by the fire, watch movies and play games with family and friends.
Hardwood floors extend up the handsome staircase, onto the expansive second floor. The charming master suite features window seats, period windows, fireplace, walk-in closet and bath. Three more generously sized bedrooms and an office complete this floor, including the enormous rear room with built-in seating, cabinetry and desk.
Abutting the open green space of the Presidio and very close to where the Bay meets the Pacific, Lake Street offers some of San Francisco’s most alluring parks and trails – all in your backyard!

Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy the Presidio’s and Mountain Lake Park’s beaches, running and biking trails, golf course, meadows, tennis courts and playgrounds. Dog lovers and their canine friends congregate at the local off-lead dog park.
