This Luxury home was built in 1902 and designed by architect Frank S. Van Trees for San Francisco wool merchant Marcus S. Koshland and his wife. It was modeled after Le Petit Trianon, a palace they had admired in France that was infamously known as the home King Louis XVI gave to Marie Antoinette.
The property is located in the upscale neighborhood of Presidio Heights and includes three separate lots totaling 2/3 acre of land. It includes the main house at 3800 Washington, the guesthouse at 3810 Washington and vacant land at 125 Maple that is currently used as a garden. The house is indeed fit for a king! The main house includes 9 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 4 Living Rooms, 3 Kitchens, Formal Dining Room, 2 Sitting Rooms, Family Room, Music Room, Game Room with Elevator access to all levels with a Grand Ball room on the top floor. The guesthouse includes 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, Full Kitchen, Formal Dining Room, Living Room and a study/office.
It reminds me of something Great Gatsby would live in if he were alive today!
