There is a place in San Francisco where dreams are not simply alive – they are both conceived and achieved. It’s a setting that blends classic style and contemporary luxury, an environment made for those who appreciate quality craftsmanship. It’s history as reflected in the present moment, the perfect mix of then and now.
This is 1810 Green.
Completely renovated with an eye toward the highest level of detail and craftmanship, this generously appointed top floor Pacific Heights 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath bi-level condominium feels more like a separate house.
Inside, the first level includes a grand dining room with original working pocket doors, built-in storage and bar, and a large living and sitting area as well as the half-bath, gourmet kitchen, and third bedroom. Upstairs you’ll find the two spacious decks with views – one north-facing, one south-facing with unobstructed views of the full expanse of the Golden Gate Bridge and Palace of Fine Arts – master suite, and the second bedroom. All bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms.
Angela Free Design has incorporated a refined and timeless feel, breathing new life into this sunlit historic home. New custom windows made of African Mahogany and window coverings, distressed walnut floors, and designer recessed lighting and lighting controls. Other thoughtful features include custom hardware modeled after the original designs, a trio of gas fireplaces, and Christopher Peacock cabinetry throughout. The gourmet kitchen boasts a Wolf gas range, Built-in SubZero Refrigerator, generous center island for extra meal preparation space, and an eye-catching stained-glass window. Dual decks with Ipe wood, built-in lighting, and wiring for speakers and heat lamps invite you to take in the outdoors and spectacular view, while two parking spaces + storage heighten the convenience factor.
When well-known Bay Area architect William H. Wharff built 1806-1810 Green for himself in 1885, he brought to the task his considerable experience with building a blend of Italianate and Stick-Eastlake styles, though the building hewed closer to the latter. It retains its original porch to this day.
Ideally located just two blocks from Union Street, 1810 Green sits across the street from the turn-of-the-century Golden Gate Valley branch of the San Francisco Public Library. Architect Ernest Coxhead designed the beautiful brick and terracotta Beaux Arts building in the shape of a basilica; an upgraded and improved version opened its doors in 2011. Within walking distance are an impressive array of eateries and cultural amenities befitting gracious San Francisco living.
Dreams thrive at 1810 Green. Come live amongst them.

1810 Green Street Historical Information
Built in 1885 by contractor - architect William Wharff, famous
for numerous homes in both San Francisco and Berkeley.
He lived to age 99 becoming the oldest person to have
worked as an architect in San Francisco at the time.
He built 1806-1810 for himself as owner and lived
here 21 years. He passed away in 1936.
In Berkeley, Wharff designed the Masonic Temple at 2105
Bancroft Way and Shattuck Avenue (1906). It is one
of the best buildings in Berkeley’s downtown, and just so
happens to have been the location of BAHA’s office for
quite a few years. His Carlson’s Block and Chase Building
are also notable commercial buildings in Berkeley.
1806–1810 Green Street (1885). When Wharff built
this house for himself as owner, he re-used
plans for 2280–2284 Sutter. Unlike the Sutter
Street flats, this house still has its original porch.
This scenic Bay Area neighborhood is nestled between the Marina and Pacific Heights districts. The Cow Hollow neighborhood features the condo/row houses that are synonymous with San Francisco. Located between Lyon Street and the Presidio to the West and Van Ness to the East, Cow Hollow is near a wide variety of popular San Francisco landmarks.
When it’s time for Cow Hollow residents to go shopping or out to eat, Union Street is where all the excitement happens. Starting from the intersection of Steiner and Union you will find Rose’s Cafe, which features Italian fare including breakfast pizza. Other popular restaurants on Union Street include Gamine (French cuisine), West Coast Wine + Cheese, and Flores. The shopping available on Union Street is both diverse and unique. Some of the notable shops include Krimsa Fine Rugs & Decor, the health and beauty boutique LUSH, and Lorna Jane.
Residents of Cow Hollow are within a half-mile of Presidio’s incredible activities and museums. Enjoy a refreshing walk up and around the park’s grassy hills, followed by a picnic near El Polin Spring. Bowl a few games at the Presidio Bowling Center, or explore the history of one of the pioneers of animation at The Walt Disney Family Museum. The Palace of Fine Arts is one of San Francisco’s most unique landmarks and can be visited with ease from the Cow Hollow neighborhood.
Accessing the rest of the Bay Area is both easy and convenient. A short walk to the intersection of Union and Fillmore Street will take you to the Route 41 Transit Stop.From there, you can ride to the Financial District in less than 30 minutes. Film industry workers who live in Cow Hollow can walk easily to Industrial Light & Magic, while the Google Headquarters is just a 45-minute commute.
