Ah, Lake Street - few areas in San Francisco are as highly coveted as this tranquil, tree-lined community known for its phenomenal Golden Gate Bridge views and proximity to the Presidio, Lands End trails, and beautiful Baker Beach. The Lake Street/Sea Cliff community has long attracted San Franciscans, even in the early days. Tech tycoons like Marc Benioff have purchased homes here, and famed photographer Ansel Adams once lived in the ultra-exclusive West Clay Park micro-community, which is less than a 3 min walk from my buyer's new Lake Street residence.
Here is a look at 2212 Lake Street, my client's sophisticated home with captivating Golden Gate views.
Landing real estate in the 2200 block of Lake Street is truly special, but when my client approached me and said, "John, find me a view property," I knew exactly where to look. After competing with three other offers, we were excited to win this one-of-a-kind home in a hard-to-find location.
The profile of the Tudor-style home is super elegant; from the beautiful brick entry steps to the carefully crafted front doorway, the home's architectural elements define elegance.
Large living spaces, like this great room with wood-beamed ceilings, provide plenty of natural light and room to relax at home or gather with friends and family.
Due to the home's heightened elevation and the properties behind being lower, 2212 Lake Street has breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge, viewable via three of the four floors.
The residence has three spacious bedrooms (including a lux primary suite),four-and-a-half baths, and five fireplaces.
The remodeled top level is an airy, spacious, and flexible space for work or play, with expansive views of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is outfitted with a wet bar, a home theatre, a private office, and an additional bathroom.
On the lower level is a large entertainment area with room for a billiard table, plus a bonus bathroom, a laundry room, and walkout patio access to the outdoor living space.
The divine living experience continues outside, with a great outdoor living area featuring a bonus multi-use studio.
Surrounded by greenspace, idyllic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, artistic woodwork, and stained glass windows – it's easy to see how this area inspired Ansel Adams. To read more about the famed photographer and San Francisco native, visit sfgate.com and anseladams.com.
