A landmark on the summit of Russian Hill, the Royal Towers is a commanding presence of mid-century architecture steeped with an array of amenities for luxurious living. Residence number 1701 has been transformed into a sophisticated sanctuary with some of the best views in all of San Francisco. Edge-of-the-world vertical panes of glass extend to the floor and open to three fresh-air observation balconies for a seamless connection to the outdoors. Picture-postcard views of seemingly 360 degrees span a panorama from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Bay Bridge, the financial district, and beyond with San Francisco landmarks taking center stage at every turn.

Designed with espresso-hued walnut floors and woodwork, the color palette presents a striking backdrop to the remarkable views outside while neutral wall color and significant custom lighting have been carefully planned for showcasing fine art inside. Complementing the contemporary European styling are finishes of granite and matte glass tiles that combine with thick glass and polished or brushed chrome and nickel accents. Extending over approximately 3,300 square feet, this residence includes 3 bedrooms – two with an en suite bathroom plus the master suite with two individual bathrooms, and a powder room. A customized media room and handsomely appointed office/library round out the accommodations. High-tech comforts are integrated throughout, including in-ceiling speakers and McIntosh keypads.

Adding the finishing touches at this sought-after address are the lifestyle amenities the Royal Towers has to offer. A state-of-the-art gym, sauna, and outdoor pool provide a “no excuses” healthy standard of living right at your doorstep while the 24-hour staffed entrance and secure garage parking provide peace of mind.

  • Inside, a welcoming foyer introduces the neutral color palette with contrasting dark walnut floors and doors that unify the entire home; museum-quality custom lighting – the perfect illumination for fine art – begins in the foyer and extends to a central gallery that precedes the main living areas.

Powder Room

Living and Dining Room Ensemble

  • Breathtaking, world-class views unfold in this central gathering space where vertical panels of glass wrap around the room and fully extend to the floor for a seamless transition between inside and out; the Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge, Alcatraz, financial centers of The City, and Coit Tower take center stage amidst azure blue skies intermittently woven with banks of fog and turning into a dazzling array of shimmering lights at night; an observation balcony invites outdoor viewing.
  • Custom lighting remains a focus in the room with bands of uplighting rimming coffered ceiling sections and a discreet bar of light focusing on an art wall above the sleekly defined fireplace outlined in honed absolute black granite.
  • A formal dining area sharing this incredible space is defined by a built-in walnut buffet that enhances dinner parties with a serving counter, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and linen storage.


  • Finely appointed with walnut built-in bookshelves and cabinetry, this room serves as an ideal in-home office or quiet library; views of Coit Tower, the financial centers, Bay Bridge, and East Bay Hills provide inspiration, or perhaps distraction, while working, as does the two-way fireplace, shared with the living room.


  • Remodeled with European influence and designer style, the epicurean kitchen introduces blond cabinetry of quarter-sawn sycamore with a subtle striated pattern topped with gleaming Costa Esmerelda granite slab counters; the carefully planned arrangement of the galley design includes the chef’s center to one side with a Dacor smooth-surface cooktop and overhead Broan vent hood with full granite slab backsplash, a unique gas-fired enclosed barbecue center, two Thermador ovens with a warming drawer, and a Sub-Zero refrigerator; cleanup is a breeze on the other side with a Miele dishwasher and dual-compartment sink.
  • A view-swept dining area beside a full expanse of glass offers the perfect spot for a quick meal or glass of wine with friends at the built-in thick glass table and seating banquettes.

Media Room
