2323 Hyde St

San Francisco, CA 94109

In the heart of Russian Hill, designed by famed San Francisco architect Willis Polk (1867-1924) in 1900 for Fanny Osborn-Stevenson, the widow of author Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894), who wrote "Treasure Island" and "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" among others. Although the home was enlarged many years ago, the original heritage, design and architectural integrity has been respected and mostly remains intact. In fact, the grand staircase features the original stained-glass window designed by Willis Polk himself that depicts the ship Hispaniola (notably featured in "Treasure Island"). The Estates history is filled with intrigue and fascination beyond R. L. Stevenson and Willis Polk. Past owners include the former Mayor of San Francisco (and later U.S. Senator) James Phelan and was once the home of a Roman Catholic convent. The Estate boasts an unusually large lot and expansive gardens that are unique and extremely hard to find in the area. Then there are the N-S-E-W Views of nearly every famous natural (Bay, Alcatraz and Treasure Island) and downtown S.F. cityscape assets.The local neighborhood is one of San Francisco's most historically significant and sought-after locations combining urban elegance with hip cafes and cool shops on Hyde and Union Streets, recreational activities at Sterling Park with tennis courts, and the iconic beauty of Lombard Street "The Crooked Street," as well as San Francisco cable cars running along Hyde and fit friendly "stairway" streets. The financial district and upscale Michelin Star restaurants are nearby as well as all the excitement of North Beach. This turn-key estate has unparallelled design details including: custom wrought iron and mature ivy-covered walls. The four-story residence (with full service elevator) has voluminous grand scale filled with natural light from Palladian and picture windows that present the Bay views at every turn. Other fine amenities include a massive glass atrium covered dining/entertaining ballroom, gym, a stunning family kitchen, separate staff kitchen, home office, multiple fireplaces and accommodations of 6 bedrooms, 8 baths, and an expansive rooftop deck bound to take your breath away. This is an iconic, landmark and trophy asset priced to sell.
