2100 Broadway Francisco boasts the perfect balance of modern and classic design, a feat that can sometimes be difficult to achieve. Originally built in 1917 with an Edwardian style and detailing added during remod- eling, the classic, timeless feel of this home truly “stands the test of time,” according to agent David Bellings of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. Bellings notes that the property’s approximately 8,900 square feet was an impressive amount of space back in the early 1900s, as it is to buyers now. “The key about this house is that it’s current today, as it was before,” he says.
The grand scale of the home is a defining feature, as the space is enough to entertain 100 people while also satisfying the needs of a small family of four. It was this vast amount of space that led the homeowner to place the listing on the market, according to Bellings, as she was looking to downsize. Having lived in the home for almost 20 years, the owner expressed to Bellings that she is ready to move forward, though it will “be hard to let [the home] go.”
Sited on the Gold Coast of San Francisco, the property is located on Broadway Street, a coveted name in San Francisco that sits just down the road from “Billionaire’s Row.” The residence itself offers a variety of amazing amenities on four levels. At the entrance, you are immediately greeted by two one- of-a-kind custom-designed glass doors that open to the foyer and everything beyond. Upgrades go beyond finishes, as the remodeled kitchen offers two newly installed Miele dishwashers, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf six-burner stove and plenty of storage.
Everything is well proportioned, from any of the five bedrooms or five and a half baths, to the family/media room, wine room, home gym or au pair quarters. Stylistically, the wonderful original architectural detailing throughout, in addition to the tasteful remodeling that incorporates many classic Art Deco details, redefines the home in a way that boasts a sense of timelessness.
The truly defining characteristics of the home are the views, as the street’s elevation allows one to see almost every- thing from inside the home. The sightlines are astonishing, day or night, with so much to see from a variety of angles, according to Bellings.
These elegant architectural elements and style, combined with the large amount of square footage, showcase a sense of modern versatility in a traditional way, which is unique and appealing to different types of buyers. “This home creates an emotional reaction when you walk into it that resonates with young and old buyers,” says Bellings. “It has timeless finishes, incredible architectural detailing, added Art Deco [details], and a timeless style that doesn’t change.”
