One can only hope that the new owner will have the good sense to preserve the original redwood walls, ornate fireplaces, and other fixtures and furnishings designed by Maybeck.

A bit of history....

In 1909, Elizabeth Leslie Meyerfeld, aged nineteen, married Leon Roos of Roos Brothers Men's Clothing.

Elizabeth's father, Morris Meyerfeld, a partner in the Orpheum Theater Circuit, commissioned Bernard Maybeck to design a gift house for the couple while they vacationed in Europe, allowing the architect great freedom. The stunning result was this half-timbered, Tudor residence on a prime parcel in Presidio Heights.

At 10,000 square feet, the house is larger than it appears and is the largest residence Maybeck designed for a San Francisco client.
