This legendary residence is one of the last remaining un-remodeled homes fronting Alta Plaza Park in Pacific Heights. Located on a corner lot, the home’s setting is absolutely premier – fronting the center of Alta Plaza to the south and showcasing iconic San Francisco Bay views to the north and east.
The home was built in 1895 by Irving Murphy Scott as a wedding present to his daughter, who with her own daughter lived in the home for 89 cumulative years. The original brick home, with signature architecture by Ernest Coxhead, exhibits an eclectic, turn-of-the-century Renaissance style that was often referred to as Jacobean. In 1929, a Tudor Revival addition was added to the north side expanding the home’s dimensions, yet still providing for the private gardens that remain today.
The home is finished with extensive millwork and moldings, elaborate relief carvings, period lighting and myriad leaded glass windows that present dramatic Park or Bay views at every turn. Spanning four levels, the home comprises breath-taking entertaining spaces and five Bedrooms (including Guest Quarters), five full Baths, and two Powder Rooms. With 6,810 gross square feet (approximate, per graphic artist), the home is ready for the next family to enjoy or reimagine for a 21st Century lifestyle.
Beyond its five-star location fronting twelve acres of Park, the pulse of The City is ever apparent with a sense of energy, diversity and excitement that only urban living provides. Exceptional culinary experiences and boutique shopping are just a few blocks away on Fillmore and Union Streets and a tapestry of sidewalks for jogging and dog walking are just outside the front door. This is truly a rare opportunity to enjoy a legacy home that will be enjoyed for generations.
