As part of the Pacific Heights neighborhood, the residence belongs to one of the oldest neighborhoods in San Francisco, with the oldest structure being built as early as 1853. The neighborhood is situated outside of the Alquist fault zone, a factor that contributed to the survival of many of the 1870s era buildings during the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, including the house at 2512, estimated to have been constructed in 1900. Many of the other structures in the neighborhood were built after the 1906 earthquake, making the building one of the neighborhood’s oldest.
Located in the Pacific Heights neighborhood, the residence at 2512 Pacific Ave. in San Francisco, CA, 94115, maintains a LEED gold rating for environmental impact. The house, which underwent renovation by Mattingly Thaler Architecture in 2002, features a spacious walk-in pantry, limestone countertops in the kitchen, and an herb garden. The Pacific Avenue house also boasts a cutting-edge alarm system modeled after the alarm system at nearby Alcatraz Island.
