Historic SF treasure with visionary interior, views for miles

February 24, 2021 | Source: Compass California Real Estate Blog

Just as renowned architect Casper Mork-Ulnes began landing major awards for his work, he undertook a “to-the-studs” remodel of 2 Hill Point Avenue.

Set at the midpoint of a cul-de-sac atop Parnassus Heights, the stately 1918 Edwardian, one of San Francisco’s oldest homes, is surrounded by panoramic views of Golden Gate Park, the Golden Gate Bridge and the city skyline on all three levels.

Thanks to Mork-Ulnes’s sensitive approach, the home is now a delightful marriage of historic elements and contemporary attitude.

Original features like its exterior and arched front windows, custom walnut cabinetry, restored brass and wood front door, stairs and banister blend beautifully with ethereally light new interiors.

A lavish use of windows, including a sweep of large European-style reversible windows in the living room, brings in astonishing vistas and light at every turn. A formal dining room and powder room are just off this space.

The open kitchen with walk-in pantry and breakfast area are dramatically lit by the home’s three massive arched front windows.

Three upper level bedrooms are highlighted by a primary suite with breathtaking views from both the bedroom and the spa-style bath.

An airy study adjoins this space. A lower level guest suite is designed for privacy.

One-car side-by-side parking on Carl Street is accessed by stairs at the back of the home. The one-of-a-kind gem is listed by Jenn Davis sat $2,995,000.
