948 Hampshire Street
A charming, gleaming-white Victorian façade belies a completely modern interior. Hints of the contemporary design within can be seen from the glass stairwell extension on the right side of the house and the playful yellow front door.
Once inside, you are greeted by stylish, cool sophistication. White oak wide-plank hardwood flooring, Nest thermometers, sleek lighting fixtures, and minimalist hardware are throughout. The entry is framed by a floating bookcase and cleverly built-in coat closet, and opens up to the living area, which is flooded with light from large bay windows. Off the living room is a jewel box powder room with wall-mounted toilet for guests, and towards the back of the home is the kitchen and dining area, which faces a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and doors overlooking the home’s green backyard and deck area. The kitchen is anchored by a stunning marble waterfall island with stainless sink, and is equipped with beautiful white lacquer cabinetry and state of the art Thermador appliances including panel refrigerator and dishwasher, double wall ovens and a six-burner cooktop and hood. To the side is a bar/prep area delineated by gray lacquer cabinetry, with additional stainless sink, instant hot water and great counterspace and a pantry closet. There is plenty of room for informal dining at the island as well as formal dining looking out onto the garden, and the attached deck is great for dining and grilling alfresco.
A dramatic glass and metal staircase lit by an overhead skylight leads upstairs to a beautiful master suite, complete with a chic chandelier, his-and-hers closets, and a door opening to a cozy nook above the stairwell. The ensuite master bathroom is spa-like and ultramodern with white double floating quartz-topped vanities, endless storage and space, a gorgeous soaking tub, and a walk-in porcelain tile shower, as well as a toilet closet. Also on this floor are two additional bedrooms that overlook the garden, a hall closet, and a bathroom outfitted with a shower over tub and floating vanity. Ascending the spiral staircase off the hallway you reach the fabulous roofdeck, which affords wonderful city views in all directions and has modern lighting, glass railing, and decking. The ideal spot to entertain!
On the lower level are two more bedrooms, bringing the total to five, but easily reconvertible to one large family room, one with walk-out access to the level garden. A cleverly divided bathroom off the hallway has a toilet closet on one side and an attractive tile shower on the other, both with radiant-heated floors. There is also a hall closet for storage, a laundry room with LG side-by-side washer dryer, and access to the two-car (tandem) garage plus a spot on the parking pad in the driveway. The attractive garden is divided into a stone paver section with a firepit, perfect for outdoor dining and hosting guests, and a grassy landscaped portion with a beautiful planted row of trees. The Inner Mission location provides a sunny backdrop and is blocks from great nightlife and restaurants. Offering fantastic indoor/outdoor entertaining space and ample beautifully finished living space, all in an exciting neighborhood, 948 Hampshire is a wonderfully designed urban sanctuary!
