Located on a prestigious block and overlooking Buena Vista Park, this grand and meticulously renovated home is simply a work of art. Juxtaposing modern and sculptural elements with the classic architecture, the renowned San Francisco architectural firm Apparatus Architecture and designer Grant Gibson brought to bear a truly visionary design and sensibility to this expansive and striking single family home.
The studs out renovation created a home that is both gallery and living space. Absolutely elegant clean lines are complimented by a distinctive and purposeful warm ambience created by the warm tones of the hardwood floors, the high quality lighting and timeless finishes.
The main floor begins with the formal living room that looks out to the verdant views of Buena Vista Park. The dining room is grand, open and airy and flows seamlessly to the ultimate, top of the line kitchen with unique and exquisite elements. A light-filled family room/den (which presently functions as a music room with a grand piano) is at the rear of the home and overlooks the garden from the balcony. The first of 5 full baths is found on this floor.
Up one level are two huge bedroom suites. Both incorporate large sitting areas and the most beautiful and luxurious baths imaginable. The front suite has a walk in closet, sitting area with fireplace/built in bookshelves and a bathroom with spa shower. The rear suite is equally gracious with a walk-in closet, sitting area, balcony overlooking the garden/views and an incredible Japanese inspired bathroom retreat with a soaking tub, spa-like shower/steam room. Mediate to the bedroom suites is an office area surrounded by floor to ceiling custom book shelves. Laundry is also conveniently located on this level.
The top floor is comprised of a pentroom, a third bedroom suite and doors that lead out from the pentroom to a huge view roof deck. The pentroom is made magical by the gorgeous built in custom cabinetry that encloses an incredible coffee bar (including a Slayer Two Group Commercial Espresso Machine). The quality of your morning caffeine ritual will definitely benefit from this wildly appealing retreat. The 3rd bedroom overlooks the park and another luxurious bath makes it the perfect guest quarters.
The garden level floor is home to a world class home gym. The outstanding 5th full bath is on this level which means that if a home gym isn’t desirable then this level is the ideal 4th bedroom + bath. This level walks out to a flat beautifully landscaped garden with a large in-ground hot tub.
The garage has plenty of room for 2 cars and abundant storage.
This home appeals to both ends of the social spectrum -- those that want to entertain lavishly and those who just want to hunker down and never leave home (everything is here- why would you want to..). Or find yourself right in the middle with a gorgeous and grand home that excites you with the level of design and detail - yet calms you with a warmth and serenity that can only be accomplished with such an astonishingly thoughtful renovation.
