House of the Day: San Francisco Home Is Simply Poetic

Author William Saroyan once famously said, "San Francisco itself is art. Every block is a short story, every hill a novel, every home a poem." Well if all of that was literal, then this home would easily have a Nobel, Pulitzer and Bridport Prize under its belt.

Blessed with unparalleled views of San Francisco's hills and the breathtaking Twin Peaks, this $8.455 million home (listed at $8.9 million until just last Friday) in San Francisco is nothing short of flawless. Though it's not California-flashy (you won't find swanky exterior features like a negative-edge infinity pool or a hot tub), the Presidio Heights house is filled with so much space, light and character that you'll never want to set foot outside, anyway. Just take in those big, beautiful windows, the subtle splashes of color throughout each living space and those magnificent chandeliers, different in every room.

The six-bedroom, six-bathroom traditional elevated home also boasts a full-floor penthouse level with terrace and office, a media room and au pair suite on the lower level, and a sprawling courtyard.

Wendy Lester, Butch Haze and Rick Teed have the listing.
