Welcome to 2130 Filbert Street, an immaculately designed residence in the heart of San Francisco’s Cow Hollow neighborhood. Arguably one of the most special and charming homes on the Northside of the city, this turn of the century carriage house has been through many evolutions in its lifetime. Its most recent updates took place in 2009, 2016 again in 2019.
In 2009, the home underwent a transformative renovation. The home was expanded and completely reframed, new systems were installed, and the floor plan was laid out to function as a three-story single-family home.
The current owners purchased the home in 2016 and completed a significant cosmetic update. The home was under construction for five months as they built an all-new glass staircase ascending three stories, updated the kitchen, installed a full Control 4 home automation system, and commissioned Sayre Ziskin of SVZ Interior Design to cleverly juxtapose the New Orleans-style exterior with a sleek, modern vibe inside.
In 2019, the home’s entire exterior was given a makeover, with a fresh new color palette, all new exterior light fixtures, and a new top floor deck with glass perimeter.
Entering the home, the first impression is the grand, glass staircase, providing an instant wow-factor as you peer all the way to the top level. The functional foyer has a built-in coat rack, coat closet (which also serves as the media closet), and plenty of wall space to display art. To the left, a door takes you directly into the large garage with built-in storage and room for a home gym. At the rear of the home is a family room equipped with a Sony flatscreen, integrated surround sound, and a wall of built-in display shelves for your family photos and collectibles. With an attached en-suite full bath, this room could easily serve as a guest suite or fourth bedroom. French doors lead directly from the family room to a padded turf yard, along with perimeter landscaping and irrigation system. Bamboo and a fence provide privacy.
On the second level of the home, you will find three beds and two full baths, including the master suite. The front bedroom currently functions as an ideal home office with a gas fireplace, integrated speakers, dual closets, and it is wired for the ultimate productivity. Floor to ceiling double-windows open up to the home’s “Mardi Gras” balcony, a great place to step out for fresh air. A full bath, the second bedroom and a laundry closet with stackable units are located along the hallway. At the rear is the master suite, tucked away for privacy. The master features a walk-in closet, integrated speakers, and an en-suite bath with claw-foot tub, stall shower with dual heads and glass enclosure, and dual vanities. Tasteful marble tiles and a huge mirror accentuate the space.
As you reach the top floor, be prepared to be wowed by the bright and open entertaining level. This great room is a large public space with living, dining and kitchen all flowing into one another and a powder room discreetly hidden. This level features skylights, a gas fireplace with new marble surround, integrated sound system including 5.1 surround, 65” Sony flatscreen, Klipsch subwoofer, and a cozy corner to indulge in a good novel. One of the most dramatic features of the home is the collapsable Nana Wall at the kitchen that runs the full width of the residence. In seconds, the entire back wall disappears so that the easily accessible deck can be enjoyed anytime. With glimpses of the Golden Gate Bridge, Palace of Fine Arts, and Pacific Heights, this is the spot for gorgeous sunsets!
The kitchen features new marble counters along the perimeter, an island with Caesarstone top, new tiled backsplash, Thermador appliances including 6-burner gas range, dishwasher, SubZero refrigerator, and hood ventilation system. Sip coffee and work on your laptop, as the breakfast bar has a new power outlet strip integrated to the underside. For more formal dinners, the adjacent dining room can accommodate large gatherings and a custom chandelier hangs above the oversized table.
On the roof are solar panels, which lead to a brand new solar inverter in the garage by Sunnyboy. A Tesla charger was also professionally installed and is included. The entire house is programmed to be a smart home in collaboration with Control4, a luxury home automation company. The system allows total control of the home from anywhere in the world via smartphone or tablet.
2130 Filbert delivers on fine craftsmanship, layout, features, wow-factor, and technology, but what about the location? You really couldn’t ask for much more! The home is located in prime Cow Hollow. Within 60 seconds, you have two coffee shops - Michael Mina’s Indie Superette serving Lamille Coffee and Rapha Cycle Club, which pours Verve. Fitness buffs will enjoy Equinox, Soul Cycle, Core Power Yoga, and a plethora of pilates studios, all within a few blocks. Union, Fillmore and Chestnut Streets are all easily accessible and teeming with restaurants, nightlife, and boutique shops. Luke’s Local, a revered grocer, is scheduled to open on Union Street in 2020. Saturday Farmer’s Market trips to Fort Mason and Sunday strolls to Off the Grid are par for the course when you live in this amazing neighborhood. Grab a coffee and your pup and head out!
For those looking for outdoor activities, the home is a quick jog to the Waterfront or Presidio, and cyclists can head over the Golden Gate Bridge to bike the Marin Headlands. Moscone Rec Center, just a few blocks away, offers indoor and outdoor basketball, tennis, baseball diamonds, a dog run, two playgrounds, and plenty of grass to picnic.
This neighborhood and home alike quite simply have it all!
