Up in tony Presidio Heights (Pacific Heights’s chic yet aloof oldest sister) one can find some of the city’s finest homes. A prime neighborhood specimen lands on the market this week, a turn-of-the-20th-century Edwardian that’s been carefully renovated since it last sold in 2007.
Featuring seven bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, and 5,354 square feet, 3840 Clay comes with all the luxe trimmings a home of this magnitude affords—foyer, formal dining room, guest apartment, chef’s kitchen, and even a chandelier in the master bedroom closet.
But it’s the reemergence of wallpaper here (custom de Gournay, perhaps?) that makes this abode stand out. Though used sparingly in recent renovations—usually relegated to tiny guest bathrooms—here it’s used in several rooms throughout the circa-1900 house.
From floral print in the dining room to animalic vibes in the bathroom, it’s nice to see wallpaper make a comeback. Let’s hope we see more to come.
Last sold for $4,020,000, it’s now asking $9,995,000.
