Where San Francisco’s dairy farms and carriage houses once were now stands 1808 FILBERT STREET — a bright and stylish Cow Hollow home that’s been remodeled and reimagined into a fabulous single-family residence perfect for entertaining friends and family. This circa-1930s home features 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and has been beautifully redone using the finest quality materials and finishes.
The home boasts a large guest suite on the main floor which opens to the patio and 3 bedrooms and 2 baths on the second level including a master suite. A double vanity and glass enclosed shower and a customized closet are highlights of the suite. Two adjoining bedrooms are located on the south side of the home and receive a great deal of sunlight throughout the day. A renovated hall bathroom completes this level.
The sizeable top floor with high ceilings is perfectly designed for family life and entertaining guests. An open floor plan includes living room, dining room, and a beautifully designed kitchen with a breakfast bar and built in desk area. The recently remodeled kitchen is complete with marble countertops, glass tile backsplashes, and high-end appliances including a four-burner gas stove. This level also includes a separate leisure room with a bar area and views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Adjacent to the kitchen is a deck perfect for outdoor dining.
The area behind the house is designed as an entertainment patio and leads to the game room with new hardwood flooring and highlighted by a top-of-the-line billiard table which will be left for the new owners if they choose to keep it. A washer and dryer are conveniently located on the main floor across from the guest suite. There is interior access into the home through a two-car garage. With a Walk Score of 98 in this area, you may prefer to take an easy stroll to vibrant Union Street or Chestnut Street to visit many of the city’s highly rated restaurants and boutique shops.

The cows came home a long time ago, but the farmland where they once grazed still bears their name. Contemporary Cow Hollow retains some of its original pastoral character, but you can’t call it rural or rustic. It is one of the most handsome and desirable residential neighborhoods in San Francisco, nestled between The Presidio, the Marina district, Pacific Heights and Russian Hill.

Once known as Spring Valley, this historic area attracted settlers who came to San Francisco in the wake of the Gold Rush. They set up farms and dairies, using the fresh water from streams and a lagoon. But in 1891, the city banished the cows from what by then was called Cow Hollow—purportedly because the bountiful Bovinae had become a health hazard. Residential development took over.

Today, significant and historic homes fill the landscape. Gardens bloom with prolific plantings and trees. Birds sing or—in the case of the wild parrots that wing through the eastern end of The Presidio—squawk overhead. Raccoons raid back yards by night.

The neighborhood is serene and private by urban standards, yet conveniently located near two vibrant and popular commercial enclaves, Union and Chestnut streets. For recreation, there’s The Presidio, Crissy Field and the Marina green. The beloved Cow Hollow Playground is tucked in a near-secret setting off Baker Street. MUNI lines and tech shuttles make transportation a cinch. Access to the Golden Gate Bridge is nearly instant.

Real estate in Cow Hollow earns an A-plus, with homes among the most highly-valued in San Francisco, year in and year out. Watching over all is the very active Cow Hollow Neighborhood Association, a great source of information and advocacy.
