Description by Design Line Construction: Located just outside the Presidio, we built this highly crafted, ground-up house within a swift 18-month schedule—on a lot created by carving off the downhill portion of the client’s original property next door.

To delineate the two properties we built a 12-foot high retaining wall—leveling the original home’s landscaping in line with the top of the site, and dropping the grade for the new Presidio Gate Residence to meet the site’s downhill point.

This enabled us to add a subterranean walk-out level, which creates an indoor-outdoor living experience to the firepit patio and garden from the family room with billiards and kitchenette.

Trimless modern detailing and white plank floors distinguish the interiors—along with custom-made cabinetry, Isokern fireplace and steel elements—while triple-glazed windows ensure peace and quiet. The luxurious amenities include a 3-stop elevator and acclimated wine room.
