One of the most beautiful estates in Presidio Heights, a small affluent neighborhood that borders the pristine Presidio State Park, was recently listed with an asking price of $10.5 million. 16 Spruce Street is a three-story mid-century jaw-dropper with five bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms.

What warrants the eight figure price tag? The home is situated along the historic Presidio Wall, a row of influential and noteworthy homes of architectural value. Originally built in 1846, the residence has been expanded upon and updated with 21st century amenities such as a subzero side-by-side refrigerator, convection steam oven, dual Bosch dishwashers, Blu Bathworks fixtures and Westyle undermount sinks. Those who hate cold floors in the morning will enjoy the Four Zone Hydronic Radiant Heating System found throughout the entire interior.

Clean, modern lines dictate the interior design. The custom glass floor and transparent staircase allow ample natural light to enter the home, ricocheting off nearby light fixtures in pleasing refractions. Warm woods, white walls and luxe marble define the living spaces, creating an elegant and inviting atmosphere.

It’s nearly impossible to choose the home’s most notable feature — there’s the large central atrium, the ribbon flame fireplace surrounded by Calacatta Oro marble, or the expansive views of Julius Kahn Park and the Presidio. Here’s hoping the next Powerball jackpot covers the asking price.
