The Filbert Cottages instill a salient quality, distinct in its uniqueness as a historical landmark tucked within a private tranquil enclave. The four craftsman-style, timber homes, ranging in size from 2,585 to 3,000 square feet, create a micro-gated community, exclusive in its finiteness. The Cottages have the ambiance and charm of a quaint old town, full of timeless character and modern elegance with a touch of its rustic past.
Upon entering the property grounds, the walk is paved with original bricks and lined to the east with four mews-style homes. Grand staircases ascend from the gardens to privately covered porch entries
Hidden below a subtle landscape of succulents lies an engineering marvel. A mechanical lift rises from the ground to transport vehicles to and from a cavernous 5,455 square feet subterranean 8-car parking garage located beneath the footprint of cottages.
The Filbert Cottages are exemplary representatives of San Francisco. A city for dreamer and innovators, built by the weariless. Perched on a rolling hill rising from the sea, these cottages of modest, historical roots have set the scene for far-fetched fantasies of design and luxury to take hold and hatch into a fanciful reality. To reside at 1338 Filbert Street is a subtle but distinct experience in this noble neighborhood.
