159 7th Avenue
This spectacular remodel is the ideal combination of modern living with a nod to the classic design features that make a property feel like home. You will feel comfortable from the moment you walk into this light-drenched property and find that the floor plan is open, yet maintains some separation of space, which is perfect for family living and entertaining. Upon entry, a stately room serves as the formal living and dining room framed by bay windows and a marble fireplace. The heart of the home is the stunning state-of-the-art kitchen/great room anchored by a Calacatta marble island with a breakfast bar, farm sink, a climate controlled wine room and pantry with top of the line appliances. The great room opens onto the deck, patio and deep garden through expansive floor-to-ceiling sliding doors. A garden level family room plus guest suite and two-car garage complete this fantastic home. Located a block and a half from The Presidio and walking distance to the shops and restaurants of Sacramento and Clement Streets, this home is a treasure.
Lake District is named for Lake Street, which acts as the border between this delightful neighborhood and the Presidio. The big attractions for residents are many-fold, including good schools, substantial 100-year-old homes, and daily access to the open spaces of the Presidio, Baker Beach, and the Presidio Golf Course. Tennis and Basketball enthusiasts will find courts close by, along with a playground for younger children.
A well-manicured and affluent neighborhood, the streets are quiet and tree-lined, displaying a blend of stately, immaculate Edwardians and grand Victorians. Many of the area homes boast large backyards, providing a chance to escape the grind of city life, and giving kids a place to run. Schools, both public and private are exceptional. On the private side, Adda Clevenger Prep and the prestigious Katherine Burke School for girls offer a high caliber K-8 education. Frank McCoppin, the public elementary school has a notable reputation, having scored an 827 of the California API.
Clement Street, offers extensive shopping and dining for locals. The district is renowned for its variety of affordable ethnic restaurants, produce markets, and well-appointed specialty stores.
