Buyers looking for an exquisitely designed, sophisticated and remodeled home will be interested to visit 3878 Jackson Street. This property combines all of the charm and grandeur of a turn-of-the-century home with the stylish modern comforts of 21st century technology and luxury living.
Set on a flat block in Presidio Heights behind a gated entry, the 1906 property features beautiful landscaping, highlighted by the autumn hues of potted maple trees, the pastels of flowering hydrangea bushes and a stunning recently remodeled garden terrace incorporating both a traditional and contemporary vibe.

The terrace runs along the entire length of the western side of the house. There is also a patio at the front of the house with a remote fire-pit and additional landscaping.
For those who love to entertain, or simply enjoy a wow factor just for themselves, the entryway does not disappoint.
