117 Robinhood Drive
Single Family Home | Sherwood Forest
5 beds | 4.5 baths | 2 cars
Resting at the peak of San Francisco on the highest residential street in the city, 117 Robinhood Drive is a mid-century masterpiece with incomparable views and incredible privacy. The home was built in 1965 for the then Mayor of San Francisco, Jack Shelley, and designed by architect Robert Batchelor. The lot spans 65-feet across, creating incredible scale throughout the interior of the home. Occupied by the same family since it’s construction, this is the first time the home has been available on the market.
As you enter, you are immediately drawn to the 22.5-foot floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the drop-dead panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, Golden Gate Bridge, Mt. Tamalpais, and Mount Davidson, all enjoyed from the spacious entertainment rooms. Groves of cypress, pine, and eucalyptus trees surround the home, creating a sense of serenity and privacy. Details include beautiful wood-beamed ceilings, acacia and oak hardwood floors, radiant floor heating, and contemporary finishes throughout the kitchen and bathrooms.
The heart of the home is an expansive open living, dining, and lounge area with a calacatta marble gas fireplace, soaring ceilings, a full wall of windows offering a verdant view, and access to a deck. The kitchen is flooded with southern light and has been thoughtfully remodeled to include grey Caesarstone countertops, sleek white cabinetry, double ovens, countertop seating, and a discreet wet bar. An adjoining breakfast room provides a casual dining option with direct access out to a covered dining patio and the sunny and spacious yard. The south-facing front yard includes an expansive deck and a charming turfed area, perfect for children or pets.
The secluded master suite, located on the main level of the home, includes a bedroom with an inspiring view, ample closet space, an en-suite bathroom, and a dressing room with access to a secondary bathroom. Completing this level of the home is a spacious family room, powder room, mud room, and interior access from the two-car garage.
At the top of a windowed stairway and linked by a breezeway on the airy upper level, the four guest bedrooms and two baths are quiet, private, and filled with light. Two of the bedrooms enjoy enviable views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Ocean, and surrounding trees. The other two bedrooms are bathed in natural light and offer great closet space.
117 Robinhood Drive is perfectly perched just steps from Mount Davidson in one of San Francisco’s most intimate neighborhoods, Sherwood Forest. The neighborhood is known for it’s peaceful setting, access to walking trails in Mount Davidson, and incredible views.
