If you’re visiting the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, you don’t have to go far to find the regal mansions and architectural grandeur of Upper Fillmore—one of the city’s oldest and wealthiest districts. Quietly brimming with Art Deco elegance and Victorian-era charm, the neighborhood asks for a certain level of refinement when it comes to design. This stately 1904 Victorian on Fillmore Street manages to achieve that to a daring degree. The interiors encompass five bedrooms and four baths, artfully mixing traditional finishes and sophisticated modern elements. As far as we’re concerned, it’s a harmonious combination of old and new.

The room that reflects this balance beautifully is the living room. Flanked by tall doorways and ceilings with deep crown molding, this space is centered around a sleek gas fireplace with Venetian plaster surround and transomed picture window looking out to the street below. Contemporary furnishings, custom artwork and a gray palette further add to the living room’s atmosphere of sophisticated glamour.

Clean lines with views extending back to the dining room create a contemporary feel, while high ceilings and wide, expansive doorways expand each room and fill it with natural light. This is one modern twist on Victorian we can get behind: it manages to be both beautiful and practical.

Oh, and did we mention incredibly chic?
