THE ULTIMATE GROWN-UP TREE HOUSE
San Francisco has a handful of special and relatively unknown blocks where nature, privacy, and unobstructed light exist right above (but just far enough away from) the noise and hustle of a busy vibrant city. Welcome to 550 Valley Street; the end of the cul-de-sac, where old growth trees, birds, owls, the occasional raccoon and friendly neighbors provide the living antidote to city life.
Walk through the front door and be met by a wide, elegant foyer that provides a direct view to the bamboo trees right outside the sliding glass doors of the primary bedroom. This primary en-suite bedroom is so spacious that a king size bed and a sitting area are a natural fit. The truly spa-like bath is wonderfully well-appointed with a jacuzzi tub, separate shower with a large rain shower head and double sinks. The huge walk-in closet is a clear asset. But what gives this primary suite a sense of serenity and completeness is that the sliding glass doors lead to an enormous deck, and beyond that, the lush verdant and beautifully well maintained garden. A second good-sized second bedroom is on this floor as well. The wide oak floors and gorgeous white walls add a warmth and modernity to this floor of the home.
Ascend the wide staircase to the magic of the 2nd floor. At the top of the stairs look one way and take in the lush green trees and then look the other way and behold the huge unobstructed views of the bay. Perched on what feels like the top of the world, you will never get tired of viewing the world through that huge picture window. The quality of the light that radiates through this floor of the house is magical and breathtaking. The kitchen has been very tastefully remodeled with high-end appliances (Thermador, Viking, SubZero), quality quartz counters and a beautiful and useful waterfall breakfast island. The kitchen transitions to a second deck that has full views of the gorgeous garden made lush with Japanese maples and lemon trees and many other mature plants and trees. The large open dining area lives in front of that huge picture window. The joy of experiencing the change in the light and views during the different times of the day is palpable. How can you be anything but happy here?
With ~10’ ceilings the living and dining areas create a grand open living space. The living room is wide and is blessed with a wall of Bay windows and a cozy fireplace. The spacious quiet 3rd bedroom is also on the main floor. The fully renovated second full bath is on this floor as well. It is so well finished and adds to the overall aesthetic appeal of this floor.
Tucked away at the rear of the yard and hiding behind some old growth trees (accessed from either the top deck’s spiral staircase or the sliding glass doors in the primary bedroom on the lower level) is the coolest cottage ever! Recently remodeled and legalized, it also has its own full bath with a shower. The current owner used it as a music studio, but you do you. Office, gym, guest quarters?
A parking pad for at least one car is located right in front of the home. There is also quite a bit of street parking as well.
This is a one of a kind..a sophisticated, private, semi-detached delicious tree-house of a house.
