Through another set of pocket doors more stained glass and vintage woodwork await, as well as built-in cabinetry and another exquisitely detailed fireplace, giving a distinguished feel to the richly hued, showcase formal dining room. Elegant wainscoting surrounds your dinner guests in a room fit to share the most lavish of meals. Opposite the dining room is a sun-drenched kitchen, where the granite-topped counters and island, custom cabinets, and dual pantries provide all the preparation and storage space for the culinarily inclined. Exiting the kitchen, one alights on the private and chic multi-tiered deck, perfect for a quiet morning coffee or evening Barolo with guests.
A bedroom/office space near the kitchen features a set of French doors leading to the deck, and along with a powder room and linen closet, completes the layout of the first floor. The back staircase leads down to the two-car garage, or up to the floors above, beginning with the astonishing en suite primary bedroom. The richly appointed bedroom is a grand accommodation, with French panel moldings and a turreted corner window framing a view of Alcatraz and the Bay. A private vanity puts the finishing touch on the romantic space, offering a level of comfort and style that invites taking a personal day now and again.
Three other bedrooms on the second level offer unique enchantments of their own, from stained glass transoms and hardwood floors to lofty ceilings and turreted windows. Nestled between the bedrooms is a private library, cozy and tempting, ideal for wiling away an afternoon with a book…or at least falling asleep with a book in your lap. The library boasts a handsome fireplace and bay windows—more features to distract you from reading.
A third floor, flanked on either end by turreted nooks, comprises two spacious bedrooms and an enormous family room. Stunning views of the city and Bay are enjoyed from every window. Raised, angled ceilings top the airy third floor, suffused with light throughout the day. The surfeit of rooms and space at 2415 Octavia lend the Victorian home the quality of a magnificent manor, exuding sophistication and old world charm from top to bottom. Still another enticing attribute of the home is the street-level, one-bedroom au pair apartment, ideal for use as an in-law, featuring its own separate entry.
In addition to its position amongst San Francisco’s most coveted neighborhoods, close to the haute couture boutiques, epicurean delights, and landmarks that define the city, the architectural distinction and grand scale of this home present a truly unique opportunity.

Just north of Lafayette Park in Pacific Heights—one of San Francisco’s most coveted enclaves—stands a home of distinguished presence. The grand Victorian, lovingly maintained and thoughtfully updated, is an architectural landmark positioned prominently at the intersection of Octavia and Broadway. One of five row houses designed by William Hinkel in 1892, the home is a rare combination of sophisticated modern style and timeless elegance. Steps from the destinations that have long made San Francisco, and Pacific Heights in particular, one of the most sought-after addresses in the country, this listing is an extraordinary opportunity to own a piece of San Francisco history.
The formal entry is a dramatic affair, with a carved staircase under a high box beam ceiling and pocket doors revealing a spacious living area. Stained glass gives a rich effect to the foyer, where the light plays off intricate woodwork. The expansive living area is a double parlor—soaring ceilings with detailed plasterwork stretch over the spectacular formal living and entertaining room. Stained glass accents provide a flourish within original wood moldings, while tree-filled outlooks from the windows, an eye-catching tiled fireplace, and bay window seating make the ideal environment for celebrating milestones and holidays with family and friends.
