2698 Pacific Avenue
Exceptional Classical Revival Mansion in the heart of Pacific Heights.
Behold the glamorous rebirth of 2698 Pacific, the star of the San Francisco Decorator Showcase in 2017. Originally built in 1906 by the renowned father and son architect team of Newsom & Newsom, this Classic Revival Residence located on one of the premier blocks of Pacific Heights recently experienced a resurgence of glowing accolades. Twenty-eight of the best & brightest designers in San Francisco descended upon the 4 story 11,000+ sq foot mansion and transformed it from a stately handsome home into dazzling jaw-dropping icon. The "Mack Mansion" of yesteryear was artfully reimagined for a contemporary aesthete, while respectfully paying homage to its rich heritage. Juxtaposed with the modern designer decor, classic architectural details still abound from the grand escalier crafted in dark wood with wrought-iron balusters to the immediately recognizable circular temple-style portico white marble front entrance. This one of a kind property has only been in the hands of a few owners such as financier Julius Mack, the Orrick Family for 50 yrs, and a prominent orthomolecular doctor.
Perched atop a corner lot spanning nearly a fifth of an acre, 2698 Pacific boasts 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms + 2 half bathrooms, and sweeping panoramic views of the Bay on the penthouse level. The middle levels are drenched in natural light and exude gracious living while the ground level is perfect for staff quarters or guest suites. All four floors are connected with an elevator. Rear motorcourt fits 7 vehicles behind a gated side driveway entrance.
Of the 390,000 homes in San Francisco , only 42 have the distinction of being selected as a prestigious San Francisco Decorator Showcase. 2698 Pacific is part of this very special group of trophy properties & deserves an equally distinguished new steward to carry on its proud legacy.
