The story of 838 Paramount Road

Embellished throughout, this four-bedroom Mediterranean brings a Pacific Heights quality to the finer-climate side of the Bay. Exquisitely tucked in Crocker Highlands, the three-level home opens to balconies and a level composition of brick terrace and private garden buffered by a wooded expanse. Refined and radiant living and entertaining spaces include a tremendously appointed heart-of-the-home kitchen, bedrooms including master suite together on one level, two full bathrooms plus powder room, family and media bonus rooms in addition to architecturally alluring formal living and dining rooms.

Home, property, and location reflect the height of grace. Amid picturesque surroundings in convenient proximity to everyday everything, Paramount Road arrives at ideals. Its elongated single-block span showcases distinctive architecture and offers scenic walkability to highly rated schools, parks, shopping, dining, and recreation throughout Lakeshore and Park Boulevard hubs.

The home’s exalted façade and grounds capture the essence of a Mediterranean villa. An arch motif carries from soaring windows to the arcaded entry porch, combining with decorative ironwork and barrel-tile roof. Regal approaches, a brick walk parallels a ribbon-style driveway, meeting detached garage beyond an iron gate. Mediterranean custom emphasizes indoor-outdoor connection, illustrated en masse as the dine-in kitchen, master suite, family and dining rooms open to verdant surroundings.

Throughout the interior, renovations dovetail with time-honored Twenties facets. Period focal points include expansive domed windows gracing three sides of the living room, inviting lavish light to reflect off dark hardwoods, which unfurl throughout; a wall-to-wall hutch brings enduringly elegant form with function to the dining room. The kitchen, a renowned restauranteur’s discerning creation, fuses a classic aesthetic with contemporary capability. Professional-caliber appliances, including six-burner BlueStar range, Thermador rotisserie oven and French-door refrigerator plus wine refrigerator, integrate amid cabinetry with cachet and Calacatta Gold work-of-art marble slabs adorning counters and massive multifunction island. A stunning space for congregating and creating, the island invites a crowd, as does the breakfast area, which connects via French doors to an awning-covered deck. Another opening leads to the terrace for al fresco dining.

Bedrooms are noteworthy for scenic outlooks and walk-in closets. Plushly endowed, the master suite with Juliet balcony presents a view to the Bay and especially spacious, configured walk in. Its bathroom’s double-head shower outlined in basket-weave marble, shutter-style cabinetry, and subtly veined stone surfaces intermix to sophisticated and soothing effect. In the hall bathroom, hexagonal tile and a claw-foot tub generate consummate vintage appeal, while the powder room connects to the kitchen physically and stylistically.

On the lower level, a wet-bar-equipped family room plus media room provide separate spaces for casual indoor-outdoor enjoyment. Abundant storage and laundry facilities also occupy the lower level.
