When it comes to being able to have the perfect balance of serene nature and exciting city life, this $8.75M listing by Joseph Lucier and Stacey Caen of Sotheby’s International Realty sits at the most ideal location for both.
2302 Steiner Street at the southeastern corner of Alta Plaza Park is a grand and stately residence that not only offers palatial aesthetics and amenities, but also a prime location right beside the trendy and bustling Fillmore Street.
This home beautifully marries modern functionality and comfort with its graceful Early American aesthetics. The distinct turn-of-the-century style of its beautiful western façade faces Alta Plaza Park, adding to its equally gorgeous skyline view.
Upon entering this home’s opulent front staircase entryway, the bountiful natural sunlight filtering in immediately greets you warmly.
The front door leads into a reception room that flows effortlessly into the formal dining room and high-ceilinged public parlor rooms on either side of it. These parlor rooms lend themselves to being exceptional entertaining salons as they offer inviting bookshelves and two cozy fireplaces adjacent to the clear view of the park. The hardwood floors are also completely original and were finely crafter utilizing a petit Versailles inlay pattern.
The neighboring formal dining room across the hall is also accented by a fireplace, resplendent with an intricately carved wood mantel. Elegant eye-catching pieces of this room include a full China and butler’s pantry.
The home centers around the spacious kitchen, and for good reason. It is an airy and natural light-filled room anchored by the center island with a six-burner gas stove/griddle, double ovens, and a tailored hood.
The spacious kitchen also contains ample storage with visually-stunning seamless built-in cabinets, two sinks and dishwashers, and under-counter freezer drawers. Additional amenities include rich marble counters, a Sub Zero refrigerator, and the terrace right directly outdoors from the kitchen with a gas grill and fast access to the garage.
Aside from the glorious first floor, moving up you will find three bedrooms and the office facing the park within this home’s second floor. The master bedroom also stunningly faces Alta Plaza Park, complimented by a gorgeous fireplace with a mirror-inset mantle.
The master bath brings together its separate shower, bathing tub, and vanity with a high barrel-vaulted ceiling. The two other bedrooms and bookshelf-lined home office on this floor are all tied together with the custom-designed hardwood flooring.
The home also features a top floor with two complete bedrooms and baths large enough to function as a separate apartment with its kitchen and living room, or as another illustrious entertainment room to this complex.
Below this opulent 1900s-style unit fits its updated laundry room, wine cellar, and spacious storage rooms that connect to its two-door garage leading out to Clay Street.
Whether coming from the beautiful park or from one of the delicious eateries on Fillmore, 2302 Steiner is perfect for coming back home to.
