Exquisite + Expansive Victorian
Buena Vista Park Condominium
38 Baker Street is a siren call to all perfectionists who love the majesty of grand Victorian architecture. The renovation process has touched nearly every aspect of the building. Located at the base of Buena Vista Park, this beautifully restored Victorian is everything that is quintessential San Francisco.
You’ll step through the front door and notice how fast your heart beats. You’re greeted by 11.5 foot ceilings, high quality recessed lighting, beautifully smooth walls, dark wood floors, expansive doorways, a long elegant hallway that invites large pieces of art and oversized mirrors, and the added elegance of a wonderfully open floor plan. Ever-present is the quality workmanship and the attention to detail. There is a visionary quest to maintain the sense of the extraordinary and compelling Victorian architecture while solving for the practical needs of the 21st century.
Two exquisite guest rooms on this floor are luxuriously spacious. The first of these is currently configured with a queen size bed, spacious sitting area and fireplace. The second guest room is equally grand and well-appointed with a high-end designer wardrobe that has been fully incorporated into the room. Both bedrooms have gorgeous pocket doors with custom Italian locking sliders. The full bathroom on this level, with double sinks and a walk in shower, is dramatic and oversized.
Walk down the gracious hallway and encounter an unexpected wide and ultra spacious living room that is directly open to a world class kitchen. The kitchen has an abundance of counter space, 6-burner Viking range, an additional wall oven + separate warming oven and an enormous amount of storage and high-end finishes. A light-filled dining room that faces the garden is right off kitchen. French Doors open directly to an exclusive use deck with a remote controlled awning. Rain or shine the deck beckons. A staircase descends to the large and sophisticated exclusive use patio/garden surrounded by mature and beautifully manicured landscaping. There couldn’t be a more ideal and gracious place to entertain. Many large and happy parties have been enjoyed here.
Descend to the lower level by a perfectly designed modern staircase. When you arrive on this floor and take a few steps toward the primary bedroom you realize that you’ve just stepped into primary bedroom heaven. This sexy en-suite bedroom is spacious enough for a king-sized bed plus a sitting/lounge nook and office area. A fireplace adds warmth and serenity. Walk out, through French doors, to your own private patio and garden. The en-suite bath with a free-standing bathtub and a huge separate shower/steam room with multiple shower heads is both luxurious and spa-like.
A laundry room on this level has interior access to the garage. 38 Baker has two exclusive use parking spaces. One is located in the garage and the second space is a generous-sized parking pad to the left side of the garage. The garage also features a huge amount of storage for this unit.
This historic location is a block from Buena Vista Park, two blocks from the Divisadero corridor and just minutes from Duboce Park. So many dining and shopping venues are a quick walk away. Public transportation is within blocks and tech shuttle stops are moments away.
38 Baker is a luxurious and grand condo that only comes along once every so often. It makes your heart beat fast. It makes you feel at home.
