A tall front gate opens into the private sunny courtyard garden, where a first glimpse is of the living green wall and cool modern sculpture.  Then, the gaze lifts in amazement as you look through floor to ceiling windows on both sides of the living room to the north bay beyond, some of the best views in San Francisco.  At night, the scene becomes magical when accent lights illuminate the courtyard greenery and sculpture while city lights twinkle in the distance.

A first impression is that of homecoming, a tranquil retreat right in the middle of the city, a space to entertain friends and family. This is an open flexible floor plan, with tall ceilings throughout and an open staircase, a wonderful home for artwork.  With custom recessed and accent lighting throughout, the house will inspire you to display pieces you really love.

The living room/great room, opens from the courtyard straight ahead through three glass doors, merging the outdoors into the home. With dark hardwood floors, a marble fireplace and a deck beyond, the great room features high ceilings and dramatic volume for multiple seating areas and dining. The spacious working kitchen is situated to the right off the courtyard and was created for those who love to cook and entertain.  Again with dark hardwood floors contrasting the long center island white Carrera marble top, and surrounded by professional stainless appliances and fixtures, the working kitchen has two of everything - built in ovens, sinks, microwaves, dishwashers and a large subzero refrigerator. The kitchen may very well become your favorite place to hang out with guests.

Through the tall main front door, upon entering the foyer your eyes look up the central staircase to the window and skylight above.  This is the perfect wall for dramatic works of art. To the left you step down to the great room, to the right you step into the chef’s kitchen. An entry closet and powder room complete the main level.

At the top of the stairs is a cozy office/library, perfect for work related activities or curling up with a good book, a glass of wine and an incredible view.  It would also serve well as a young child’s bedroom.

The master suite occupies the remainder of the upper level.  This is a grand room with a wall of windows to the view, north bay, downtown and east bay, where you can watch the changing scenes and colors of the day from rising to setting sun, and follow the summer fog moving in and out of the city across the bay surfaces.

The master bath is essentially a home spa featuring an oversized shower with multiple sprays, spacious double vanity, soaking tub with verdant views, radiant heat floors, upstairs laundry and an entire bank of custom closets. The accents colors are cool dark olive stone tile floor and Carrera marble countertops and shower surround.

On the lower level is a central media room just at the bottom of the stairs and two guest bedrooms, both with access to the private Zen-like rear garden and patio.  One en suite bedroom features a steam shower that is open to the garden and has radiant heat floors.  A second bath on this level includes the second laundry and extra storage.

The double garage has interior access to the kitchen, and features extra built-in storage and custom electric car charging station. Also, there is abundant street parking.

The house is wired for audio, video, and internet throughout with powerful speakers mounted in the ceiling of the living, kitchen, office, master, and master bath for listening pleasure.  Seven surround sound speakers fill the living room where a 3D TV inconspicuously sits in its custom cabinet. Whether enjoying your serene retreat or entertaining a crowd overlooking the city and bay, you will feel as though you are on vacation in your own home.

With incredible sweeping views, located on what has been reported to be the highest residential street in the city, and hidden on a double cul-de-sac with only eight houses on the block, this contemporary, recently remodeled home is 5 minutes to Muni, 10 minutes to BART, 20 minutes to downtown or the SF International Airport and 30- 45 minutes to the heart of Silicon Valley via Interstates 101 and 280.  Despite being in the middle of the city, you will enjoy the stunning front and rear views while being enveloped in a peaceful natural setting surrounded by open spaces, trees and meadows, with walking paths steps from your front door.
