This full top-floor contemporary penthouse residence exudes both charm and sophistication and boasts many unique architecturally innovative design features. This condominium is located in an elegant and meticulously well-maintained, 10-unit Edwardian building in the fashionable Pacific Heights neighborhood. With its 25 foot circular-shaped living room, this home has an excellent floor plan for modern living including large motorized skylights, each room opening up onto a terrace, a separate library with a wet bar, recessed lighting, hardwood floors, and high ceilings. The kitchen and bathrooms are all clad with richly colored, Rosatica marble surfaces, modern appliances and solid brass fixtures. All cabinetry is custom and made of quarter-sawn white oak.
As one ascends the elevator from the building’s main lobby, the elevator opens directly into the penthouse’s foyer and in full view of its elegant formal dining room. Intersecting the foyer is a long galleried main hallway illuminated under a fully motorized retractable skylight. This hallway connects both halves of the penthouse. To the north, is the dramatic circular living room dominated by City (Russian/Nob Hill & Marina) and water views (Angel Island & Alcatraz Island, Sausalito, Mt. Tamalpais & North Bay), wood-burning fireplace, all opening to the formal library with its elegant woven grass cloth wallpaper, and richly finished oak, built-in bookshelves, custom cabinetry and an enclosed wet bar. Adjacent to the living room is the spacious master bedroom with its own wood-burning fireplace. The master bathroom has a Japanese soaking tub, a large walk-in closet and a laundry area, all opening up to the private north terrace with views of the City & Bay.
To the south of the foyer, is the modern kitchen, custom oak cabinetry, a generously sized pantry and a large nook for breakfast as well as casual dining. Next to the kitchen is the guest bedroom and bathroom. All south side rooms have direct access to the large south facing 40’ X 18’ terrace perfect for outdoor living and entertaining larger groups. The southern view looks down onto the historic Haas-Lillienthal Mansion, and Van Ness transportation corridor, and looks up-slope to the beautiful Lafayette Park, an additional local outdoor amenity only two blocks away.
Located at the corner of Franklin and Jackson Streets, one is within two to five blocks of the commercial districts of Polk Street in Russian Hill as well as Union Street with its fashionable shops, restaurants, cafes & boutiques.
