2590 Union Street, San Francisco, CA 94123
This stunning-view property has not been on the market since 1970. Originally built in 1899, 2590 Union sits on a classic Cow Hollow corner overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, and glistening Bay waters. These iconic views begin from the glass-enclosed front door portico, continue on the entertaining level, main BD and office, and culminate on the top-floor family room and walkout deck. The large eat-in kitchen has soaring ceilings, abundant natural light, and direct access to the south-facing front garden and large backyard. Mature landscaping, natural grass, and your own garden house make for pleasant indoor-outdoor living. The bedroom level consists of 2 BDs, full BA, nursery, and main suite with view office, sitting room, walk-in closet, and luxury BA. The balustraded staircase leads to the top level with 2 more BDs, full BA, and a spacious family room and walkout roof deck with the best views. The lower level consists of a laundry room, mudroom, mechanic's room, storage, and 2-car side-by-side garage. This gabled, shingled home is utterly unique, combining turn of century romantic charm with modern, luxurious amenities. This private garden setting on an oversized lot is magnificent, and the awe-inspiring views stir the imagination.
“Tharp was not a fan of Victorian architecture,” listing agent Max Armour of Compass told SFGate. “He felt that style to be presumptuous and preferred a more simple, dignified style.”

“Tharp was not a fan of Victorian architecture,” said listing agent Max Armour of Compass. “He felt that style to be presumptuous and preferred a more simple, dignified style. He had a long career in the city and held a lot of sway in the design of this city, especially after the great quake.”
