3001 Pacific Avenue
Exquisite Pacific Heights corner mansion, rebuilt and renovated on all five levels. At one time a consulate, this property presents the perfect opportunity to own a state-of-the-art custom family home in one of the most coveted locations in San Francisco. 3001 Pacific Avenue is wonderfully designed with high ceilings, paneled walls, intricate crown molding, and either ornate textured carpeting or original hardwood flooring throughout.
Approximately 14,000 square feet of living space includes exquisite entertaining rooms, two unique master suites, several bedroom suites, a fitness studio, gathering rooms, guest bedrooms, private offices, domestic rooms and more. There are three kitchens, six full baths and eight half baths. There is also a back staircase, two garages which accommodate two cars each, an enchanting yard, garden, and private landscaped driveway with an iron security gate.
As you walk up the exterior marble stairs, under the elaborate carvings of the front gate, and through the beautiful glass door with lavish iron decor, you are greeted by a spacious entry that serves as the gateway to the entire home.
The formal living room is gracious and welcoming with beautiful French paneling, intricate crown molding and floor-to-ceiling paneled windows. Custom engravings surround the fireplace and a glass paneled door leads out to a sunny viewing terrace. The formal dining room, which mirrors the formal living room, is equally elegant with magnificent windows, detailed paneling, and a custom fireplace, perfect for entertaining.
This level also includes a service kitchen with stainless countertops, sparkling white tile walls, and top-of-the-line appliances. A Miele Professional dishwasher, a Subzero, a Viking four burner cooktop with Wolf custom hood and a Viking oven complete this chef’s kitchen.
The Reception Room sits towards the front of the house and is private and inviting. Adding elegance are amazingly large paned windows with iron balconies. Built-in cabinetry, a fireplace with grand mantle and marble hearth, and ornate crown moldings accentuate this lovely room.
This floor is completed by two side-by-side half baths located fittingly under the main staircase. The elevator and security room and the convenient exterior side entrance are situated adjacent to the elevator room.
A dramatic grand staircase leads to the upper floors, which has a custom-designed rail with brass detailing and dark brown flooring, enhancing the uniqueness of the property and providing an appealing contrast with the clean ivory walls. Luxurious carpeting covers the stairs and leads you to the second floor, which features the master suite.
Through the glass doors lies the master suite, composed of the master bedroom and sitting room, with potential for a walk-in closet. The master bedroom is an impressive room with another array of floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing an abundance of natural light and a beautiful southern view of the city from Downtown to Sutro Tower. The master bathroom features an intricately designed tiled floor as well, and a matching dark wood vanity and a closet for extra storage. Next to the master bedroom is an area with built-ins that would serve well as an enclosed and spacious walk-in closet.
The sitting room (a former conference room), is adjacent to the master bedroom and is located next to the space for a walk-in closet. It includes dark wood built-in cabinets with beautiful marble counters, large paned windows and exquisite paneled walls. This completes the “master suite” on the second floor.
Three bedrooms, two offices, and three half baths complete this level. The large windows throughout the second floor allow for natural light as well as a lovely glimpse of the San Francisco Bay. There is a spacious hallway closet with built-ins, and a set of custom hallway cabinets and drawers in pearl white wood as well as a creamy marble countertop.
The third and fourth floors served as the home for the previous consulate family. Upon ascending the stairs, you are greeted by a stunning foyer. A modern chandelier hangs from the high ceiling, and a three-sided paneled wall covered in frosted windows provides an added element of intrigue and privacy to this floor.
The living and dining areas are combined to form a spacious great room, perfect for hosting an intimate group or a large gathering. A glass door leads out to a terrace with sweeping, awe-inspiring southern views of some of San Francisco’s finest landmarks.
The beautifully designed kitchen draws you in with its clean décor softened by natural light, including a black and white marble island with modern hanging lights overhead. A Subzero refrigerator and freezer with decoratively paneled doors blend nicely with the cabinetry. The kitchen has many other high end appliances, including a Thermador oven and microwave and an additional vented six-burner Wolf oven. To the side of the kitchen is an area with a marble-topped desk that provides a little oasis among the hustle and bustle of the cooking and entertaining space.
This floor features a laundry room, three large bedrooms with closets, two full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms. The bedrooms are spaciously designed with large windows and closets with automatic light, and the bathrooms are tastefully done in marble.
The next flight of stairs lead you to the top floor of the residence, where hardwood floors and crown molding can be seen throughout. This floor includes two gracious and spacious rooms, one of which has stunning raked windows with magnificent views and could be well served as an informal entertaining space, and the other of which could be a lovely second master bedroom. Each large room has two glamorous closets. Built-in drawers, hanging racks and shelves adorn these magnificent walk-ins.
A beautifully decorated full bathroom completes this level. There is a marble counter top with two sinks and deep brown wood cabinets with silver square knobs. The marble floors and walls are in a light beige hue as they accentuate the standing shower and separate bathtub made exclusively of marble.
The lower level of this glorious home boasts a full catering kitchen with state of the art appliances - perfect for entertaining. Two Bosch dishwashers, side-by-side full size Subzero refrigerator and freezer, two sinks, two side-by-side Dacor ovens with eight cooktops and two additional Viking ovens convert this into an industrial kitchen, ready to prepare dinners for any size of gathering or gala. There is also a wine room with floor-to-ceiling wooden racks covering all three walls. The remaining five rooms could serve well as au-pair quarters, a workout room, and as offices or storage space. A walk-in laundry room includes a Whirlpool washer and dryer and built-in cabinetry for storage. A private rear servant’s staircase connects all the floors of the property. A full bath with two sinks and two half baths complete this level.
