Tech CEO selling 1908 S.F. mansion with ‘everything’ – even a lovely basketball court

A stately 1908 San Francisco mansion with a shady basketball court in a garden setting is for sale in the Pacific Heights neighborhood for $14.25 million.

“ This exceptional home stands out amongst its peers , and comes complete with decorative brickwork ensconced in ivy, a finely landscaped front garden, a dramatic black and white marble entrance, and custom wrought iron and glass doors, creating a truly grand entrance,” according to the official property listing.

The property is rare even among other beautiful Pacific Heights estates, said listing agent Nina Hatvany of Team Hatvany at Compass.

“Buyers and agents know that these kinds of homes that have everything you could want are rare,” Hatvany told the Sacramento Bee in an email. “2624 Green Street boasts grand spaces, period details, endless bedrooms, stunning views, outdoor space and is move-in ready. Given it checks so many hard to find boxes, the response has been quite positive so far and people are making it a priority to see this house.”

The updated 6,400-square-foot home with six bedrooms and four full bathrooms retains many classic period details, including leaded glass, coffered ceilings and ebony floors.

With access from two levels, a deck leads out to a garden, which is currently set up as a modular tile sports court with a regulation-sized basketball hoop, surrounded by landscaping and mature trees. The court could be converted to a grass or turf lawn area, as well.

“This home manages to be grand and incredibly family-friendly all at once,” Hatvany said.

The interior is designed to accomodate large-scale entertaining as a large and dramatic foyer flows into a living/dining room of soft colors and tall ceilings and modern stone fireplace, through the family room with views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Palace of fine Arts, to the kitchen. A grand staircase leads up to the bedroom level and down to a “whimsical” powder room, according to the listing.

The listing calls the kitchen the “crown jewel of the home.” Marble countertops, a glass backsplash and white custom cabinetry are one thing, but an impressive view from the Presidio and to Sausalito might be a sight even better to behold. A separate glass-enclosed breakfast area takes in views, too, and a dumbwaiter services the garage, kitchen, and bedroom levels. Off the kitchen is a patio with stairs continuing down to the garden and lower level.

Upstairs is what is called a “pentroom,” a sprawling space with exposed beams above that is framed by a wall of windows that looks out at Alcatraz, the Golden Gate, Sausalito, Tiburon and Angel Island. The pentroom features a fireplace and built-in speakers.

The upstairs has a primary suite with postcard views and an office. On the top floor are two more bedrooms, a bath, den and family room with more superb views.
