Architecturally significant home in Pacific Heights

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.

3500 Jackson-this is only one small portion of the place.

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!
