Designed in the French Eclectic style by noted Bay Area architect F. Frederic Amandes, 3498 Jackson was once home to Hills Bros. Coffee Company scion Herbert Gray Hills and his wife Winifred. Today, the home’s updated interiors blend seamlessly with inviting period details creating a perfect harmony of classic and contemporary.

View of the Golden Gate Bridge

In front of the home lie stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Bay, and Presidio. The mansard roofs are accented by dormer windows.

A lavish wrought iron and glass front door opens to a captivating world of light-swept parquet floors, delicate wall murals, and a remarkable oval staircase encompassing all four levels. Abundant windows wash the spaces in soft light and frame breathtaking vistas of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay, and city lights. The vast living room is defined by an ultra-wide floor-to-ceiling bay window.
