4191 Gilbert Street
This handsome Piedmont Avenue home boasts stately curb appeal and classic 1910’s architecture. The square, commanding design provides a traditional floorplan, efficient use of interior space and a recessed porch with wide inviting front steps. Elegant lines and period detail add romance to the timeless style. Enhancing the emotional appeal of this home are: box beam ceilings, wood floors, and columns; custom stained-glass windows; period lighting and fireplace facades; and a panoramic city-view retreat that can be used as a sunroom, office, or den. The impeccable restoration features a beautiful new kitchen, half bath, laundry and breakfast area, opening to a spacious deck. Generous outdoor space, downward slope and local zoning allows for the addition of a garden unit for rental income, guest quarters, writer’s room or a private art studio. A shingled Craftsman by architect Julia Morgan makes for desirable company next door. The Piedmont Avenue and Temescal neighborhoods are jumping with busy cafés, restaurants, bars and shops. It’s an easy commute to San Francisco by car or BART.
