Noted for his Craftsman and Georgian designs, Bay Area starchitect Albert Farr made a name for himself with tony homes in some of San Francisco’s most prestigous neighborhoods. Russian Hill, Pacific Heights, Sea Cliff, and St. Francis Wood, just to name a few.

But he also created a few beauties outside of SF. Take, for example, this 10,153-square-foot number up in Piedmont.

Coming in at seven bedrooms and nine and a half baths, the Italianate Mediterranean at 395 Hampton Road still bears the marks of its circa 1928 past even after a recent renovation.

And what a remodel it is. The formal dining room, library, family room, game/media room, ballroom-sized living room, guest quarters, and guest cottage have all benefitted from a recent refresh.

Which isn’t to say it’s been renovated to death. On the contrary, the house’s look still has an eye firmly on the past. Downright lovely, all of it.

Featured in such publications as Architectural Digest and Town & Country Magazine, it’s asking $7,995,000.
