3636 Washington, on the market for $15 million

The beautiful Presidio Heights home located at 3636 Washington Street has recently gone on the market for $15,000,000, listed by Susan McBride and Lisa J Wolfe of TRI Coldwell Banker.

This distinguished and historically significant house was commissioned by Adolph Coors (founder of The Coors Brewing Company) as a gift to his daughter, Louise “Lulu” Coors, upon her marriage to Dr. Henry Berent Albert Kugeler in 1903.  The couple lived at 2210 Baker Street until 1910 when, according to tax records, the Washington Street home was completed under the direction of architect T. Paterson Ross.

The Kugelers, who lived at the home with their daughter and two sons, were a socially prominent couple. They held a grand dinner and dance at the home in 1913 that was covered by the San Francisco Chronicle, and even Mrs. Kuegler’s teas and luncheons there were considered socially notable.

Following Dr. Krueger’s death, the house was sold in 1916 to Frederick W. Dohrmann Jr. for $60,000. Since then, it has continued to be occupied by an interesting variety of people. At one point it housed the Miss Wilkins Private School, and until the 1980s the International Insititute for the Translation of Buddhist Texts.  The current owner, Brook Byers, is a senior partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.

In 1985-1986, the house underwent upgrades to its structural, electrical and plumbing systems. “A majority of the interior surfaces were completely refinished,” according to the selling agents, who noted that “Many of the home’s unique turn-of-the-century architectural details were restored to their prior glory.”

According to the agents, the 8-bedroom residence, reportedly just under 10,000 square feet, is “situated from north to south, which allows incredible light from all sides throughout the day, and it is perfectly positioned to provide extraordinary views of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Bay and the Presidio.”

No doubt the wonderful Presidio Heights locations is what originally drew the Kugeler family to 3636 Washington over 100 years ago, and will continue to delight its new residents in the near future.
