OK. So I’m not hung up on Pacific Heights, but I found some really interesting homes there over the last month or so. I’ll move on after this posting.
I found 3500 Jackson when I was exploring the end of Pacific Avenue that posted last time.
Architecturally, this home struck me. It wasn’t until I went back to take some pictures to post, that I realized what a monster this house actually is. The view at the back of the house is toward the Presidio. Convenient to Sacramento St. shopping. I can only imagine what this house would be worth if it were on the market. Reality is, this sort of home doesn’t hit the market.
I’m sure there’s a name for the style of house, but it seems to me to be a cross between a Tudor and a craftsman. Look at the detail on these eave brackets. Note also the owl behind the bracket-I didn’t notice it til I posted the photo. I wonder if it does it’s job keeping birds away. Keeping all that wood detail clean is a big job!
