2940 Jackson Street
Built in 1894 and designed by renowned Arts & Crafts architect, Ernest Coxhead, 2940 Jackson is one of the few surviving San Francisco homes designed by Coxhead. This fabulous family residence features beautiful period details, including elegant moldings, dark hardwood floors throughout, and charming leaded windowpanes.
The gracious entryway boasts a stained-glass window, soaring ceilings, and a large landing with a coat closet. To the right is the formal living room, with a wall of oversized south-facing leaded windows and a wood-burning fireplace flanked by built-in bookshelves. To the left of the entry is dramatic formal dining room, encased in green jewel-tones, with a lovely wood-burning fireplace. The dining room is adjacent to the bright and sunny eat-in chef’s kitchen, which is outfitted with attractive Carrara marble countertops and backsplash, top of the line stainless appliances, and a wonderful breakfast bar for informal dining. The space also includes a family room, surrounded by large windows, and sliding doors to walk out to the garden, allowing for a seamless indoor/outdoor experience. The garden is the crowning glory of this home, recently transformed by landscape designer Jenny Weiss, using concrete pavers and steps, new fences, and a wood deck to create multiple lush and landscaped levels for seating, dining, and even a hot tub, all surrounded by flowers and greenery by Terremoto Landscaping.
Up the main staircase is a chic powder room, cleverly tucked away at the mid-way landing. On the second floor are four bedrooms and three bathrooms, including a sophisticated and stylish master suite. The master bedroom boasts a fireplace, built-ins, great light through south-facing leaded windows and a walk-in closet. The ensuite bathroom is encased in marble and offers a walk-in glass shower and a double vanity. Down the hallway are three additional bedrooms; the middle bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with shower over tub, and the other two bedrooms are served by a gorgeous marble bathroom with shower. The back bedroom is filled with sunlight from corner windows and overlooks the garden. There is also a convenient laundry closet with a side-by-side washer and dryer on this level.
Upstairs is a wonderful playroom or office, as well as a large storage room. A one-car garage with storage completes the picture. Located in the heart of Pacific Heights, this home is within walking distance to the shops and restaurants of Fillmore and Sacramento Streets, Alta Plaza Park, the Presidio, the JCC, and many excellent schools in the area.
