2765 Filbert Street was built 1909 – a glorious year in San Francisco architecture. The rather stately and unique Edwardian building sits on a mostly flat block and is comprised of two levels over a garage and storage area. At approximately 3,500 square feet, it contains four bedrooms and three full bathroom and is almost fully detached.
The main level has central heating (first floor) and contains a grand entrance with two doors and a large entry porch. The living room has high coved ceilings, a period steel fireplace and Bay windows. There is a large library with floor to ceiling built-in shelves and the sitting area is convenient and cozy – light filled with adequate windows. There are two large, full bathrooms. The family room has a coved ceiling, solid oak hardwood floors, a wide wood burning brick fireplace and raised hearth. The kitchen, with considerable cabinet space, is nestled adjacent the living room – which features French doors that open to a lushly landscaped light and spacious back yard. The yard entertains with a wood and brick patio surrounded by a comfortable bench seat. Wisteria, camellias, marigolds, daisies, cyclamen, primrose and roses, a lemon tree, bonsai, azaleas and many more plant varieties comprise a peaceful and private garden. A large bedroom with coved ceiling, picture moldings, and Bay windows and a large and private office finish the main level.
A gentle flight of stairs leads to a sitting area on the second level. There is a large bathroom with cross light. The doublewide master bedroom also contains Bay windows. A second spacious kitchen – solid oak hardwood floors, large cabinets, double refrigerator – is adjacent to a washer and dryer area. The grand doublewide living room is next to the formal dining room containing picture molding, a gorgeously appointed brick fireplace and Bay windows.
The extra large garage and storage space (additional washer and dryer included) represents considerable expansion potential.
