New Listing: Ernest Coxhead-Designed Pacific Heights Residence

Exterior of 2940 Jackson

I’m proud to announce my new Pacific Heights single-family home listing at 2940 Jackson Street. This special residence was built in 1894 and designed by Ernest Coxhead, a leader in the early California Arts and Crafts movement.

Known to architectural historians as the Gillespie House, 2940 Jackson’s exterior showcases intricate carved wood details, leaded glass windows, dual dormers, distinctive red-bricked stairs and driveway, peaked roof and wooden double gate.

The main level has a great floor plan that includes a south-facing living room with central fireplace and built-in window seat, dining room with fireplace and chef’s kitchen with Carrara marble counters/backsplash, breakfast bar and top-of-the-line stainless-steel appliances. The spacious kitchen flows into the bright family room with oversized windows and Fleetwood sliding glass doors that open directly to the inviting landscaped garden.

Designed by architect Jennifer Weiss, the garden fully embodies the Californian indoor/outdoor lifestyle and features poured concrete planters, an ipe wood deck, multi-level seating and dining spaces and a Japanese cedar ofuro-style soaking tub amidst a lovely variety of plants, trees and flowers by Terremoto Landscaping:

A perfect family home, 2940 Jackson has four bedrooms and three full baths all ideally located on the upper level. The stunning, south-facing primary bedroom has vaulted ceilings, plaster walls, low-set leaded glass windows and fireplace, original built-ins, and walk-in closet with cedar-lined drawers and walls. Clad in gorgeous marble finishes and Waterworks fixtures, the en suite bathroom has a walk-in glass shower and double vanity:

The top floor is the perfect hideaway for an office, media or playroom:

Modern conveniences include Tesla solar panels and Powerwall battery and EV charging outlet in the garage. The home has built-in Klipsch ceiling speakers on the main floor, central air on the sleeping level, Nest thermostats, doorbell and security cameras, and SimpliSafe alarm system. The one-car garage features built-in storage and direct access to the backyard.  There is parking for a second vehicle on the driveway.

2940 Jackson is located on a prime neighborhood block a short distance from Alta Plaza Park, Divisadero, Fillmore and Sacramento shops and restaurants, the JCC and Presidio. Steps from Waldorf, Town and University High schools.

List price is $5,295,000
