Saint Francis Wood Dream Home
A Masterfully Renovated in Saint Francis Wood
At the intersection of iconic architecture and modern luxury, occupying a prestigious neighborhood in San Francisco, 72 San Benito Way infuses modern design with an unforgettable, historic façade. Turnkey ready, this renovated well-appointed smart home offers an open concept design spanning four light-filled floors, an abundance of natural light, lush landscaping, and a true indoor-outdoor living experience. The result is a synergy of structural eminence, architectural vision, and practical luxury unlike any other.
Situated on one of the most picturesque streets in St Francis Wood, this charming and timeless four-story Tudor has been redesigned and remodeled to the studs (completed in 2020) for the modern age. In a stark juxtaposition to the traditional Tudor ethos, the interiors are bright and airy, enhanced by natural light flooding in from every new JELD-WEN window (with screens). A set of French doors in the front and a nano door in the back affords direct outdoor access from the kitchen and seamlessly blends indoor living with the outdoors. Wide plank espresso floors flow throughout, establishing a contemporary cohesion that sets the tone for the rest of the fully reimagined space. Outfitted with new systems and WIFI-enabled smart features, this home includes newly upgraded electrical (240-amp service), Bryant heating system, upgraded plumbing with copper pipes, Takagi tankless water heater with recirculating coils, and a hot water holding tank, advanced ADT security system with indoor and outdoor camera, Lutron smart light switches, Nest thermostat, Ring doorbell system and Hunter Douglas solar shades. The lower level includes a fitness and yoga studio, a conveniently located laundry room with a new Whirlpool smart front-loading washer and dryer system, and a half bath. The main level includes a high-touch kitchen with Miele and Thermador appliances, a waterfall island, wine storage, dining and living rooms, a mud room, and a full bath with a rain shower system. The second level is home to three spacious bedrooms, two full spa-like baths with upgraded fixtures and rain shower systems, and a primary suite. The third level hosts soaring ceilings for a media room/guest room, office, and separate playroom.
Front and backyards are professionally programmed with new landscaping, irrigation, and outdoor lighting systems. Cut fresh hydrangeas and enjoy eating the organic blueberries, lemons, limes, apples, and herbs from the garden. Second refrigerator/freezer in the garage, extra-long driveway for parking, and a short walk to one of SF’s most charming streets, West Portal. Minutes to Highway 101, Interstate 280, and SFO Airport.
