Situated along Alta Plaza Park, 2302 Steiner Street is a statelyresidence beloved for its fine architectural proportions and sensitive period detailing. The western façade of the home looks toward the park’s terraces and natural sunlight floods the interior spaces. The front staircase from the sidewalk welcomes one into a turn-of-the-century entry vestibule.
The front door opens into a reception room leading to the formal dining room in one direction and public parlor rooms in the other. These entertaining salons benefit from high ceilings with beautiful outlooks to the park. Warmth is added to the rooms with walls of bookshelves and two fireplaces. The original hardwood flooring is finely crafted with a petit Versailles inlay pattern. Of equal scale is the home’s formal dining room accented by a fireplace with a carved wood mantel. A china cabinet setback and butler’s pantry add elegant and functional aspects to this entertaining room.
The gourmet kitchen is the heart of the home and accessed through pocket doors from the dining room. This spacious and light-filled room is a welcoming gathering spot and a dream for the gourmet cook. Visually anchored by a custom fabricated hood, the center island commands a six-burner gas stove/griddle with double oven. Walls of built-in custom cabinetry lend a visual flow to the room while adding tremendous storage. The kitchen includes rich marble counters, double sinks, two dishwashers, under-counter freezer drawers, and a Sub Zero refrigerator. Directly adjacent the kitchen is an outdoor terrace with a gas grill and direct access to a one car garage.
2302 Steiner Street offers the best of Pacific Heights living, as just one of only five single-family homes along the park’s sunny eastern perimeter. The prime Alta Plaza Park location cannot be overstated. One block from the lively Fillmore Street business district’s boutique shopping, restaurant life, and neighborhood services adds the flavor of European living so famously enjoyed in San Francisco.
