Upper Rockridge Jewel
There are homes & there are properties. As you enter the driveway of 4614 Jacobus Avenue, you know at once that you have arrived at a property. This artistic home is located a mere 20 minute BART ride away from downtown San Francisco, close to highways, and around a corner from bus transportation. It offers an ideal climate, a unique privacy & colors that scream out “pizzazz.” You will love the Rockridge setting with its perfect climate and trendy restaurants at your fingertips.
This masterpiece has been featured on a television segment of “Eye on the Bay” back in 2006 & has many of the garden installations photo’d in Keeyla Meadows’ book entitled, “Fearless
Color Gardens, the Creative Gardeners Guide to Jumping Off the Color Wheel.” Its creative seller used artistic sense & a good eye for repurposing items originally harvested from Bay Area estate properties.
Entering the driveway, you come across the front garden designed to capture magical views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Mt. Tamalpais & the Bay from the whimsical Bench designed by Keeyla Meadows, noted Berkeley Artist & Horticulturalist. Every installation on the property
has her touch:
* the Marin Estate Gates with stained glass ornamentation which she painted & mosaic tiled entryway to the house
* to the magical surprises in the rear Upper gardens with concrete and tile seating areas providing privacy & embracing the Guest House accessed by colorful mosaic walkways
* to the Lower gardens which you enjoy in your view from the master inside, as well.
* vignettes of salvaged wrought iron gates repainted in whimsical colors surrounded by landscape designed flora & fauna.
Inside: a beautiful archway beckons your eye across the hardwood floors to the view of the Bay through the windows overlooking the Golden Gate and Alcatraz flanked by a classic brick fireplace. The adjacent dining area is ideally located outside the next archway to the kitchen.
This newly permitted & remodeled white shaker kitchen glistens with gray quartz counters & new stainless steel appliances. A convenient laundry room off the kitchen has pass-through cabinet storage out to the hallway.
Another archway leads to the remodeled Art Deco bathroom, adjacent art nook & either of two bedrooms with updated California Closets & capturing views of the gardens, with the master dual paned window slider allowing direct garden access.
The studio cottage was constructed by a licensed contractor in place of the garage. Designed around the re-purposed doors & two stained glass windows which adorn the bathroom, one to the garden & the other above the doorway shows artistic vision.
Public Records indicate the Home was built in 1941, has 1090 square feet on a 4500 sq. ft. lot.
