Julia Morgan Carriage House

Record Sale! Highest price per square foot so far in 2015!

Located in San Francisco

Location, Location, Location!

The quaint brick carriage house that fronts on Pacific Avenue was constructed in 1917 and designed by notable native California architect Julia Morgan to serve the Newhall Mansion directly adjacent, an Albert Farr commission from owner Edwin W. Newhall, built earlier in 1907 on the famed Gold Coast.

This modest structure, nevertheless, also has a great deal of character with high ceilings throughout the upstairs and the ground level, as well as many fine period details.

A three-door garage fronts on Pacific Avenue plus a separate, finished spacious storage room, laundry and half bath are located on the ground level in back.

Upstairs the entry porch opens to a central hallway.  The contemporary kitchen has a large pantry and a dining area overlooking the colorful rear garden.  Across the front width of the building is the living room with office nook. There are built-in bookshelves across the common wall to a bedroom which includes a spacious walk-in closet.  The remodeled bath and linen closet are situated off the central hallway.

Other amenities include updated systems, hardwood floors, slate roof, gated entry, oversized rear yard.

Julia Morgan

Although part of a prominent East Coast family, Julia Morgan was born in San Francisco in 1872, growing up in Oakland. She graduated with a degree in engineering from Cal Berkeley in 1894 where she was influenced by and worked briefly with famed architect Bernard Maybeck.  She was persuaded to continue her studies in architecture in Paris at l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts, first applying in 1896 and being rejected for being a woman, then finally accepted in 1897 when the school changed that policy.

Upon her return to San Francisco after distinguishing herself in Paris, she became the first woman to become a licensed architect in California in 1904 and joined the architectural firm of John Galen Howard contributing to work on buildings under the University of California Master Plan including her proposal for Sather Gate. She opened her own independent practice in 1907 and designed buildings at Mills College, including the Bell Tower. A great deal of work came her way after the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, including redesign of the Fairmont Hotel and other structures in San Francisco and the Bay Area.

The introduction to her most famous patron William Randolph Hearst came through his mother Phoebe Apperson Hearst who was influential in the development of UC Berkeley.  Arguably her most grand and time consuming project, Hearst Castle, called La Cuesta Encantada, in San Simeon on the central coast of California, is now enjoyed by visitors from all over the world.

Many accolades continued even after her death, including induction in the California Hall of Fame, as well as the first woman to be awarded the AIA Gold Medal.  She was an original and true artist, reflecting upon and influencing many other architects.  She completed designs for over 700 structures in California, both residential and commercial, although her work was not confined to this state alone.

Neighborhood - Pacific Heights

If you're looking for commanding views of San Francisco Bay then Pacific Heights is your place.  What you'll find is heart-stopping sunsets with neighborhood hills lifting up from the Marina stretching east and west between the Presidio and Van Ness avenue.  This is the stuff of which dreams are made.  Its a picture-perfect setting, and one Hollywood chooses to highlight when depicting the world-famous hills of San Francisco.

This majestic section of town houses some of the largest homes in the city, including a wide array of Victorians, Edwardians, Mission Revival and homes in the style of French Chateaux and Italian or Spanish Villas. An affluent neighborhood, Pacific Heights is home to the consulates of Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Korea and Russia. Several elite private schools in the area were once former baronial mansions.  Among these are Town School For Boys, Convent of the Sacred Heart, Stuart Hall High School, San Francisco High School, and Drew School.

Folks fortunate enough to live in Pacific Heights benefit from its gorgeous parks, playgrounds, and miles of hiking, running and biking in the adjacent Presidio Park. For shopping, look no further than Fillmore Street, outer Sacramento Street and Lauel Heights Village serving this exciting part of town.  Many world-class boutiques and fantastic restaurants are found, as well as exceptional patisseries, flower shops, designer retail clothing and everyday shopping marts.
