Magnificent Russian Hill residence with incredible architecture and design plus gorgeous city and San Francisco Bay views. Designed by architect Sandy Walker with interior architecture and design by Helga Horner, this spectacular home includes every luxury imaginable, with five bedrooms including a separate guest apartment, five full and three half bathrooms, a media room, a top floor family room, a wine cellar, an elevator, decks, a roofdeck with sweeping views, a walk-out garden, five+ car parking in the garage, and more.
Entering on the main entry level, one is greeted by a grand entry foyer with a striking three-story floating helix staircase constructed from Scagolia stone with a Murano Glass chandelier, "Grand Duca" by Diego Chielo, overhead. The chandelier is one of only seven that were fabricated, and the only one in the U.S. To the left of off the entry is a wonderful office/bedroom with an ensuite bath, a spacious media room with a bar area and custom entry doors, and an elegant powder room.
One flight up is a fabulous open gourmet kitchen/family room with a Michelangelo marble island, backsplash and countertops, and Italian walnut cabinetry, Miele appliances, and a Bluestar range. The family room has a nano wall opening to the private backyard with a seating area, BBQ, and pizza oven. The garden is paved with quartz stone flooring and displays an open fireplace wall, fabricated with fireproof polished lime plaster. The fireplace is flanked by two small bronze Tazza fountains. Down the hall is a chic powder room, and an impressive living and dining room includes a fireplace flanked by bleached walnut cabinetry, two balconies, and views west across the city.
The fourth level presents a stunning primary suite at the front of the home. The bedroom offers a cozy gas fireplace and seating area in front of a balcony with northwest views. The ensuite bath is outfitted with Blue Bahia stone slabs, a floating crystal shower, a free-standing Italian bathtub, Eglomise cabinet faces on the double vanities, and TVs hidden behind vanity mirrors. Off the closet is a dressing room/walk-in closet fit for a queen, designed with Macassar Ebony finishes and suede-lined shelving. A third bedroom connects directly to the dressing room, so it could be used as an ensuite study for the primary suite, and it boasts a walk-out balcony. Adjacent is a fourth bedroom with a built-in desk and balcony, as well as a luxurious Carrara Marble bathroom with floating vanity and a glass-enclosed shower.
The fifth level features a fabulous family room with a bar area and a dramatic curved fireplace wall clad in custom walnut paneling from Italy. The entertainment room opens through glass doors to a large granite terrace displaying sweeping views of the city, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Bay. At the back of this floor, overlooking the garden below, is a lovely fifth bedroom with a walk-in closet and balcony, and a bathroom outfitted with Carrara marble.
Up a granite staircase is a marvelous roof deck oasis with double-thick glass railings displaying views across the city, the waters of the Bay, and the Golden Gate Bridge spire.
The second level, one floor below the main entry, houses a full guest apartment with a separate entrance, ensuite bath, and kitchenette. Down the hallway is an enviable temperature-controlled, custom-designed glass-enclosed wine room with seating, as well as an AV/storage room, a spacious laundry/utility room with double washer/dryers, dog washing basin, and catering refrigerator, and a chic powder room with an attached secure ‘safe room.’
At the garage/street level, past a beautiful entry gate and water feature, is a five-car garage with a mechanical lift, (three cars side-by-side and two on the lift), a gracious elevator foyer with faux suede walls, and a large storage/utility room.
Welcome to the luxury home of your dreams.
