On a level block at the top of Russian Hill, this fully renovated co-op encompasses the entire fourth floor of a circa 1920s beautifully detailed and impeccably maintained mid-rise building designed by T. Paterson Ross, a significant Bay Area architect. Internationally acclaimed interior designer John Wheatman transformed the home for sophisticated City living, and noted Toronto interior designer Leslie McMillan of Trianon Design recently completed an update of the residence.
Taking center stage in the living room, formal dining room, and office (or third en suite bedroom) are sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay, dramatic views of the downtown skyline, and iconic landmarks including Coit Tower, the Transamerica Building, the Bay Bridge, and glimpses of the Golden Gate Bridge. Custom built-ins for books and collectibles, perfectly placed lighting for art display, and luxurious finishes appear at every turn. A balcony spanning the living room, and on the sheltered east side of the building, provides a comfortable outdoor venue for enjoying the views – dazzling by day and by night.
Personal accommodations include a spacious primary suite, reconfigured to encompass abundant space for wardrobe, plus a fitness area and spa-inspired bathroom with heated floors. The second bedroom, which doubles as a family living area off the kitchen is cleverly concealed when needed for privacy with sliding walls on two sides. The customized office, also with en suite bath, is easily a third (guest) bedroom. This spacious home is enhanced with garage parking for one car, two private storage rooms, plus shared use of the rooftop room with fitness center. Adding to the appeal is the home’s location along the Cable Car line and across the street from George Sterling Park and Alice Marble tennis courts, which comprise an entire city block.
