Designed by Ted Moulton and built in 1961 for retired advertising executive and bachelor about town, George Kleiser Junior, the three-level Pacific Heights home at 2010 Jackson Street has just hit the market listed as a “beautiful blank canvas to create [a] dramatic adult house.”
And it’s a canvas for which they’re asking $15 million to acquire.
From the listing with respect to 2010 Jackson’s low-slung design, set between neighboring mansions:
“The façade is quite austere in the modern style. A witty play of classicism makes it appearance with two Greco-Roman statues perched atop the front corners with full width balustrades in between. The eye moves to the horizontal entablature with delicate frieze in a scroll pattern. Tall Ionic columns and decorative ironwork grace the elegant arched entry. Handsome sculpted conical and spherical boxwood hedges are set in river stone along the walkway.
A second level full floor view Master Suite was skillfully added in 1987 with Architect George Livermore. With a slight setback at the front, the only perceptible change in the façade was the addition of a pergola with four pairs of supporting Ionic columns visible above the original roofline.”
The view from the aforementioned second level’s northern terrace:
Kleiser’s father was a founding partner of Foster and Kleiser, a pioneer in billboard advertising which was acquired by Clear Channel Communications. George Jr. passed away in 1976 and the home is currently owned by the Jones family.
With a current tax-assessed value of $550,023, the property tax bill 2010 Jackson was $6,797 last year.
