3701 Clay Street is a classic fantasy piece of 1920s architecture that melds Moorish and Medieval motifs. Sequestered balconies on the upper floor immediately evoke an enchanted setting and the atmosphere is further enhanced by the Gothic arched entry and custom glazed tiles accenting the front stairs.
The entry to #4 is marked by an elegant, curved stairway embellished with a wrought iron balustrade. On the main level a grand living room stretches across the home`s East end, with a working fireplace, wet bar and two balconies framed by glass French doors. Views and light lie in every direction, from bay views to the Northeast to classic San Francisco vistas to the South. The formal dining room features a distinctive beamed ceiling detail and a sky-lit alcove with Moroccan style tiles and built-in fountain offers a lovely, light space for plants or quiet meditation.

The island kitchen has enough room for a table and chairs, and is a natural gathering area for guests. Special features include a double oven, cook-top stove, warming drawer, two sinks and newly installed quartz composite countertops. Three bedrooms and two baths complete this level.

The home`s recently completed top floor adds more than 1200 square feet of living space to the home`s original floor plan. It is presently set up as a master suite with full bath, family area and office but is a flexible space that offers dramatic possibilities for living, with beamed ceilings, gas fireplace, wet bar and skylights.

About Presidio Heights:

The elegant Presidio Heights neighborhood embodies Hollywood`s vision of San Francisco, with blocks of Victorian mansions and Cinemascope views of the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. San Francisco locals tend to be a bit more cynical about the exclusive air of Pacific Heights, but that doesn`t mean you won`t catch residents of other neighborhoods making a special trip for the eclectic, upscale shopping opportunities offered by the upscale shops on Sacramento Street. The neighborhood also enjoys excellent proximity to the Laurel Village shopping center, a cozy stretch of shops with two excellent supermarket and easy parking.

Beyond the architecture, scenery and shopping, Presidio Heights is also adjacent to the Presidio of San Francisco, a nearly 1500 acre park noted for its wooded areas, hills and scenic vistas. One of the access points to The Presidio lies just three blocks from Clay Street, where the Julius Kahn Playground offers tennis courts, a ball field, club house and toddler climbing structures and swings.
