“New construction” are two words you don’t hear often in the San Francisco real estate market. It’s the city of classic Beaux Arts buildings and the historic Painted Ladies, after all.  That’s why this custom built beauty in the city caught our attention.

“This is one of the only few homes built from the ground up in the Lake District area in years,” says the home’s listing agent, Rich Lewetzow.  “Its sheer size is impressive. In fact, according to the tax records, it is among the top 10 largest homes in the district.”

Set on an abundantly-sized corner lot in one of San Francisco’s premier neighborhoods, this remarkable home is a celebration of old and new; classic city charm paired with modern amenities.

This Lake Street address offers warmth, a comforting atmosphere and elegant style in approximately 6,027 square feet. Four levels reveal six bedrooms and five and one-half baths. There’s a grand foyer to usher in guests. An au-pair suite with full bath is also thoughtfully placed.

Upstairs on the second level, a full-sized kitchen connected to a living area, plus a formal dining room and formal sitting room — touched with a marble fireplace — offers ample room for entertaining family or friends. Each interior space manages to feel light and bright, a byproduct of towering 72-inch windows overlooking Lake Street.

On the next level, you’ll find a master suite, boasting panoramas of the Presidio, plus three more bedrooms. And finally, ascend the stairs to the Penthouse level, where you’ll find an awe-inspiring wrap around deck with views of the Presidio, Mount Sutro and Pacific Ocean. There’s also a second master suite with stall shower and jetted tub, as well as an informal entertaining room — ideal for guests.

Offered for $7,500,000, this Lake District residence represents a rare opportunity in San Francisco..it’s your chance to get a little taste of “new” in the city you love. Call Rich Lewetzow at (415) 830-0699.
