Reimagined, rebuilt and designed with exquisite style, 2523 Steiner is a single family home one half block from Pacific Heights’ beloved Alta Plaza Park. Completed in 2020, the Lewis Butler design is simply brilliant. Painstaking care was taken with every aspect from the timeless finishes to the impressive infrastructure. The collaboration with Butler, the owners and their design team from Maison resulted in this absolute jewel box.
Each level of the home offers a special treat for the senses. The main level is open plan kitchen-dining-living with tons of natural light. The kitchen has it all - La Cornue stove with brass fittings, gorgeous natural stone, custom white cabinets, stunning free-standing marble island and more. Just imagine entertaining with this kitchen as the centerpiece.
The dining area allows for plenty of table seating and the living room enjoys a wall of beautiful floor-to-ceiling cabinets. With outlooks on three sides, the large bay window area is the perfect place to curl up with a good read or simply glory in the neighborhood views toward the Bay. Powder rooms are often the place to indulge interior design passions and this one is no exception – gorgeous floral wallpaper, custom pink marble vanity and gilded sconce.
Next level up is devoted entirely to the primary suite. From the front bay window with glimpses of the Bay, to the spacious center sleeping area, to the white marble bath, the suite offers privacy and beauty. Separate vanities, stall shower with seat and dual controls, soaking tub with claw feet, heated floors, beautiful sconces and garden outlooks have created a soothing, spa-like retreat.
The top-level multi-purpose space with full bath can serve as guest suite, media room and/or office. Flanked by east and west terraces, this room offers the best views. The east terrace enjoys partial Bay views and the west terrace, with area for your BBQ, enjoys outlooks of lush neighboring gardens.
Entry level with garage access also includes two bedrooms plus adjoining bath with dual sinks. The basement is a wine room that doubles as a media room for the current owners. The overall floor plan is exceptionally versatile.
More private than a condominium, yet an amazingly low-maintenance single family home, 2523 Steiner is the perfect package in Pacific Heights, San Francisco’s finest established neighborhood. Intelligent as it is beautiful, the house-wide Lutron lighting system allows for voice and app commands throughout. The heating/air conditioning combines a Bryant single phase heat pump with fresh air heat recovery units plus radiant heat throughout the entry and bathrooms.
One half block from 2523 Steiner is Alta Plaza Park. The park is in the center of Pacific Heights and offers grassy lawns with views in all directions, a fun children’s playground, refurbished tennis and sport courts, and flights of stairs popular for outdoor exercise. Parallel to Steiner is Fillmore Street where shopping, dining, coffee shops, wine tasting and more are all located. The superbly updated Mollie Stone’s Market is just five blocks from the home.
