This chic and sophisticated residence comprises the penthouse of a circa 1920s condominium building in soughtafter Pacific Heights. The building displays all the architectural detail of its era while the penthouse residence displays luxurious 21st century style having undergone a complete renovation in 2010. Arriving directly from the elevator to the 9th floor, stunning panoramic views are immediately apparent inclusive of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Russian Hill, and the Transamerica Pyramid. Parquet wood floors, classic moldings, numerous skylights, and striking colors add designer appeal at every turn. Cabinetry and builtins are finished in rare wood and veneers while an array of mosaics, relief tile, and stone finishes add unique and stylish touches. A handsome study (with bedroom potential) and light-filled solarium complement the gracious formal areas and a stunning gourmet kitchen stands ready for the most demanding chef.
The residence has 2 bedroom suites beginning with the master – offering the ultimate in romance with its fireplace and spa-inspired bathroom complete with soaking tub and steam shower for two. The private second bedroom suite is perfect for a family member, guest, or at-home office needs. This bedroom is uniquely situated on its own level just above the penthouse. Not to be overlooked are the amazing outdoor living areas seamlessly integrated into the home including a vast, glass-enclosed, open-air terrace with full barbecue kitchen and fountain plus a second east-facing, sheltered view terrace (directly accessed from the dining room and kitchen) with bar seating – all overlooking the dramatic Bay and City views.
