172 University Street, San Francisco, CA 94134


A truly one-of-a-kind offering, 172 University offers a dreamy indoor-outdoor lifestyle, with a perfect pairing between a beautifully-remodeled mid-century home and a park-like garden. Situated on a nearly 7000 square foot lot, this light-filled detached home features a wonderful floor plan, three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, and direct access to the covered center lanai from each of the home’s three interior sides. The home’s south wing includes a thoughtfully-renovated kitchen, offering expansive space, light from three sides, a massive island, and casual dining for at least a dozen guests. At the other end of this wing, you’ll find a large formal living room with vaulted ceiling, fireplace and a gorgeous bank of wood-framed windows. A bedroom with an office nook and a half-bath complete this wing. At the center of the home lies a comfortable and airy family room with direct sight lines from the front entry through to the lanai and rear yard. The north wing of the home includes a lovely en-suite primary bedroom, complete with a spa-like bath, walk-in closet, and direct access to the lanai. A bright second bedroom and full hall bath with dual vanity complete this wing. Despite the home’s exquisite remodel, the main event is the outdoor space. With a rare 56’ by 120’ lot, the grounds offer newly landscaped and fully-irrigated front and backyards, drought tolerant plantings from Flora Grubb, a covered back lanai with two remote-controlled heat lamps, and a level grassy area offering suburban living in the city. Other treasures of this home include an oversized two-car garage with ample storage space, wood floors, gorgeous lighting, and classic mid-century features.
