Tucked amongst historic landmarks in prime Russian Hill and close to Polk street, this redevelopment project is a beacon of design and dedication. Designated as a historical San Francisco landmark in 2001, the Filbert Cottages have been reinvented at last – combining their rich history and architectural detail with the modern conveniences of today.  While they remain known as the "Filbert Cottages," these are large, masterfully constructed and lovingly built residences that are truly unique and unrivaled in quality and design. 

One enters the Cottages from the street through a private restored garden with brick walkway.  The garage is accessed through a custom-built, one-of-a-kind car entry system, which hints at the degree of engineering required to achieve these finishes. The incredible, almost 6000 sq. ft. below-ground parking area allows for two parking spaces for each unit as well as an electric car charger and large storage spaces. The garage also has a custodial area including a half-bath, and room for guest parking. Stairs lead into each individual property and groceries or packages can be transported to the kitchen via a dumbwaiter.

Inside each home, one is greeted with the perfect blend of the finest materials and decor, including hand-crafted woodwork, stainless steel, imported stone accents, and custom tiling. Unit A boasts four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and two half baths, plus a patio, a laundry room, a wine cellar, and a media room with wet bar. Units B and C both have three bedrooms, three full and one half bathrooms, and laundry. Unit D offers three bedrooms, a family/media room, three full bathrooms and one half bathroom, and laundry, as well as a small patio, plumbed for gas.

The living / dining room of each unit is large and bathed in light, with soaring cathedral ceilings overhead.  Every surface has been built with the utmost care, including the brilliant offset gas fireplace with steel and hearth tile surround, wide-plank French oak flooring with radiant heating, and speakers throughout. The sky-lit kitchens have everything a chef could need, including a huge Miele range, Subzero refrigerator, glass Bulthaup backsplash, and brilliant and functional built-ins all around.  In Units B, C and D a wall separating the kitchen from the dining room incorporates the original redwood slat siding of the historic cottage, complete with a wood-framed window, and has been reinterpreted to complement the contemporary feel of the space.

With soaring ceilings throughout, beautiful stone and custom tile bathrooms, ample closet space and built-ins and walk-in laundry rooms, these residences are truly unique -  built with purpose and love, and respecting their rich history, but exuding a European feeling of precision design, elegance, and modernity. Any buyer will relish the detailed and thoughtful touches that will continue to surprise them as they make this house their home.

Russian Hill

There's hardly a neighborhood that compares with Russian Hill, with its mesmerizing views, heart-stopping hairpin turns, and sheer historical grandeur. Locals enjoy the hillside garden climbs, the exquisite tiny parks, and the classic ice cream parlor found at the corner of Union and Hyde. There is a delicate European flair to many of the boutiques and restaurants found along the lushly green streets of Jackson, Union, and Hyde. Green and Polk Streets offer exceptional international cuisine from French to Italian to Vietnamese, you can't go wrong in this vibrant stretch of city. If shopping is on your list, don't miss the many delightful boutiques dotting Polk Street between Union and Broadway. There is a tremendous spread of possibilities when it comes to housing in Russian Hill. From turn-of-the-century backyard cottages, to lush million-dollar homes, to hilltop town houses and condos with mind-blowing Bay views - there is something for all sensibilities. The architectural influences in Russian Hill reach back to classic form - from Spanish Colonial, to Mission Revival, to Italianate, and Arts and Crafts, and beyond. Russian Hill remains a very walkable urban landscape despite its hilly tendency. The Financial District and Civic Center are easily within reach. And if your smart you'll occasionally ride the cable car home, on a monthly pass from SFMUNI.
