1948 Sutter Street
This very special home stands proud and semi-detached on an extra-large lot in a wonderful walkable neighborhood close to historic Cottage Row and moments from the fun of Fillmore Street and destination restaurants. Grand, tall ceilings, a modern open floor plan, beautiful finishes, and outstanding outdoor space make it uniquely desirable.
Enter through the glass-paned double front doors, and all the rooms on the main level have over eleven-foot ceilings and hardwood floors. The living room is bathed in light, with a wonderful south-facing bay window. The formal dining room seats twelve easily in elegant style and is anchored by a vintage marble fireplace. The adjacent cozy family room has a fireplace with built-in TV wall-mounted above, and leads right out to the large and sheltered side patio, with its wonderful outdoor lighting, mature plantings and built-in outdoor kitchen. Stairs lead up to the gorgeous backyard with specimen trees and evergreen turf.
The family room adjoins the wonderfully well-appointed kitchen, with a large island for gathering around, ample cabinetry, farmhouse sink, and rugged Thermador range, with six burners and a grill, not to mention its large pantry with a pull-out drawer for all the small appliances. The kitchen also opens directly onto the side yard for easy indoor-outdoor entertaining. The adjacent family space has an extended built-in banquette which allows for plenty of people to dine informally or serves as a great play-space and informal sitting room, with a wall-mounted TV. Conveniently located next to the kitchen is a large and functional laundry room with room for additional storage. A niche for strollers under the stairs, an ample coat closet and a jewel-box of a powder room complete this level.
A curving stairway with great light leads to the second floor, which boasts three bedrooms and bathrooms on this level and a flexible floorplan. The master bedroom at the front of the house is unusually spacious, with a bright bay window and a cozy niche for a bed along with plenty of room for both seating and a desk. The marble bathroom is ensuite and features a Jacuzzi tub, a separate shower, and a dual vanity. Also on this floor is a centrally located play/study room with a closet and built-in storage as well as a built-in television, which can also be used as a fourth bedroom if desired. Through this room is a marvelous bedroom that overlooks the backyard. It has its own spacious deck with stairs down to the yard as well as an ensuite bathroom. Lastly, an additional lovely bedroom towards the front of the house is served by a remodeled hall bath with a marble chevron tile floor and chic brass fixtures. This floor is also accessible via back stairs from the kitchen/family room.
The semi-detached nature of the house allows for wonderful light and peaceful views of greenery from almost every room. There is a large storage area under the home as well as a parking pad in front of the home that parks any-size vehicle and an additional parking space is possible across the driveway. Not that one needs a vehicle every day when so much exciting city living is so very close by, with a Walkscore of 99!
