about this home's

Majestic Cow Hollow Home









This elegant 1916 single family home is one of the select properties overseen by famed residential builder and Cow Hollow aficionado, William W. Rednall.

2836 Filbert Street is located on one of San Francisco’s most delightful, tree-lined blocks, bordering Lyon St. and the Presidio wall. This home has been lovingly owned and maintained by the same family for the past 50+ years, and is now ready for its next chapter.

Timeless elegance draws you in and it’s love at curb sight!   From the meticulously landscaped white rose bed, to the red brick path which leads up to a large landing draped by ruby red bougainvillea.

A grand glass entry door welcomes you into the foyer and main level, which features the perfect combination of period details, gorgeous hardwood flooring, and natural light that cascades from two ornate bay windows, adorned by fixed leaded glass panels, into a sophisticated formal living room. This inviting space is highlighted by a wood-burning fireplace with marble facade, framed in by built-in shelving, and  adjacent to the pristine French glass pocket doors that open into a north facing formal dining room, overlooking an enchanting garden with Bay views.

Beyond the dining room is a cheerful breakfast room separated by French doors and adjacent to an updated kitchen which includes: a gas cook top, oven, dishwasher, Sub Zero refrigerator, vented hood, ample cabinetry and storage.  

The upper level consists of three generous, light-filled bedrooms, one of which is the primary suite with a full bathroom, walk-in closet,  charming plant-filled window box, and Pacific Heights/city light views.

The two additional bedrooms share a full bathroom, excess closet space, plus a charming sunroom/office/playroom, with northwest views of the  Bay, Alcatraz and Palace of Fine Arts Dome.

From the main level, there is an interior stairwell to an additional bedroom, a full bathroom, plus laundry area on the ground floor with direct access to the garden, and garage with 2-car parking.

The extra deep lot (25 x 138) boasts an alluring, picturesque, park-like  garden, providing the perfect retreat. Impressively bejeweled with a variety of flora, including established ferns, hydrangeas, pastel rhododendrons, pink camellias, multi-colored azaleas, roses, lemon trees, and a circle of strawberry plants at the base of a magnificent Magnolia Tree!

This highly desirable Cow Hollow location is close to the Presidio, and only a few blocks from the Lyon St. steps, trails, parks, and Cow Hollow playground. It’s only a short distance to shops & dining on Chestnut St. and Union St. Close to HWY 101/280, public transit, tech shuttles, great public and private schools.

This rare, exceptional Cow Hollow home awaits its new owner(s), and offers a world of possibilities with amazing expansion potential!
