This sophisticated Marina District home is steeped in the warmth and charm of a bygone era. Yet, the remodeled kitchen and bathrooms, and upgraded systems, help to create a harmonious blend of form and function.
On the upper floor, the sliding pocket doors connecting the master bedroom suite to the adjoining bedroom create even greater flexibility and utility by allowing the home’s top floor to function as three bedrooms; or two bedroom suites and an adjoining office, library, or sitting room; or even two bedroom suites and a nursery. The design of the home and the placement of the skylight and windows fill the top floor with abundant natural light which add to the home’s warmth and charm.
The elegant and gracious public rooms on the home’s main floor consist of a south facing living room, a formal dining room, an elegantly remodeled kitchen with adjoining breakfast room, as well as a formal entry foyer, remodeled powder room and a walkout deck. The elegant sophistication of the home’s original design is everywhere evident: from the Palladian windows, to the intricate detail of the hardwood floors, to the period fireplace, etc.
The beautifully remodeled kitchen reflects the timeless qualities of the rest of the home, with fine stone counters, top-of-the-line appliances, and refined cabinetry.
The home’s lower floor includes two car tandem parking, a laundry area with side by side washer and dryer, a fully mirrored gym area, and abundant storage. Finally, there is a small, intimate garden/patio area with an adjoining dog run.
1990 Jefferson Street is like a fine gem to behold: One that will surely bring joy to its new owner.

The Marina neighborhood of San Francisco is one of the most desirable districts in the city. With astounding views of the Golden Gate rising over the Marin Headlands, this is where the city and the bay come together. Life in the Marina implies life by the sea, with all the romance it evokes, giant exotic yachts, magnificent sunsets, and breathtaking parks. Lovers of the outdoors populate the many hiking and running trails which line the waterfront, taking in the sun drenched views and the wide open bucolic expanse of Marina Green. This magnificent park is in steady use by kite fliers, volleyball lovers, and frisbee experts alike. There are some high quality sports retailers nearby to help outfit the exercise minded residents.
Just steps away you'll find the awe-inspiring Palace of Fine Arts, an exquisite garden and classic structure reminiscent of Roman Temples which was designed by Bernard Maybeck in 1915. Here you'll find a much needed oasis of serenity in an otherwise hectic city. The rotunda, powerful columns and introspective lagoon are a select location for wedding parties and an often repeated image for travel magazines.
East of the Marina one finds a set of dock buildings, a former Army outpost, which have become central to the cultural life of the area, known as Fort Mason. It currently houses an extraordinary cultural arts center - full of galleries, dance performance spaces and a theater. A one-of-a-kind famers market resides here weekly, as does an annual food and wine festival that attracts thousands of foodees from all across the Bay.
Nowhere in the city does waterfront life come together so perfectly with vibrant city culture and world-class restaurants. Don't miss the inspiring Marina District.
