892 Ashbury St, Ashbury Heights

4,290 square foot 5 bedroom 4 bath Neoclassical style townhouse built in 1905. Sold for $2.5 million in 2011 ($450K under asking). Current estimates value the property at about $4.5 million.

The sellers were two former Williams-Sonoma executives, Dave DeMattei and Patrick Wade who apparently lived as they worked. The interior photos reflect that very distinctive overstuffed Williams Sonoma style.

My remodel c. 2012
At the time I toured this property, I was embarking on a kitchen remodel in an 1885 Victorian. What perfect timing because I absolutely fell in love with and stole the upper shelves no cabinets concept(← see left)

Open shelving can be pretty risky business in San Francisco due to our little earthquake problem, but I thought it was worth the risk. So much so that I did it again in my newest remodel, this time in a mid-century high-rise (↓ See below).
