For many years, Pacific Heights homes similar to the charming Victorian style house located at 2507 Pacific Avenue have played a leading role in movies and television shows. The 1990 cinematic thriller, Pacific Heights, showed lead actors Melanie Griffith and Matthew Modine renovating their Pacific Heights residence, although the movie actually was shot outside the neighborhood. However, the comedy Mrs. Doubtfire was filmed in Pacific Heights, at the house located on the corner of Broadway Street and Steiner Street. In addition, the long running TV series, Party of Five, took place at 2311 Broadway Street, a property situated in the block adjacent to 2507 Pacific Avenue. While the home at 2507 Pacific Avenue has yet to make its big screen debut, the recent renovation deserves acclaim. Inside, the remodeled residence is finished with the finest materials. From the rare Silver Dusk marble countertops in the kitchen to the stained walnut paneling in the central hall, the house exemplifies craftsmanship. Featuring four bedrooms and five and one-half bathrooms, the house encompasses four levels and offers the modern convenience of an elevator. As an added touch, the large property includes luxurious amenities such as a temperature-controlled wine room, exercise room, an Asian-inspired steam bath. Outside, the expansive rear yard of 2507 Pacific Avenue also warrants rave reviews. Newly redone by Frank and Grossman Landscape Contractors, Inc., the yard offers an ideal combination of new landscaping and mature trees. Perfectly appointed for indoor-outdoor living, the home features a brick-enclosed outdoor kitchen complete with a 53-inch Viking barbeque. Characterized by a New England aesthetic, the hardscape mixes cobblestone and two varieties of brick. In addition, a stone terrace extends from the master suite, creating an idyllic retreat.
