The Pink House
Belvedere, San Francisco, California, United States
“The Pink House,” Belvedere’s most authentic example of the Mission Revival style at the height of its popularity, circa 1912, when the home was built by J. M. Howells, with its curved parapet at the gable ends, quatrefoil windows and tile roof, all still clearly visible today.
Entry-garden and circular drive to the formal living room with large wood-burning fireplace and built-in book shelves, all of old-growth, hand-hewn redwood, and the adjacent arched terrace with unobstructed views of Mt. Tamalpais, the Sausalito harbor, Golden Gate Bridge and the entire San Francisco skyline.
Formal dining room with built-in china cabinet and kitchen with built-in desk and access to the entry garden, the view-side terrace and the au pair quarters. Upstairs level with four bedrooms, one of which has fireplace, balcony and full bath, and all of which open to the glass-walled view-side gallery.
The luxurious master suite occupies the entire top floor, with fireplace, private view-side terrace, large walk-in dressing area and lavish marble bath with jetted tub (with Golden Gate Bridge view), glass-enclosed shower stall and the quatrefoil; the adjacent sitting room, with the opposite quatrefoil, offers added flexibility for an en-suite study or nursery.
Lower level has office with stone fireplace, au pair studio with kitchen access, a separate one-bedroom apartment and the extraordinary ballroom with arched entry, wide staircase, 10 view-side windows and bar. Seven bedrooms, five and one-half baths, and a wonderful step back in time.
