Situated in one of San Francisco’s most iconic and exclusive buildings, this remarkable full-floor residence offers jaw-dropping panoramic views of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, and beyond. The building, named the Heights, was constructed in 1925 under the direction of architects George A. Bos and Frederick W. Quandt. This classic San Francisco structure is well-known for its portico entrance and classic lobby, with a black and white floor and a ceiling adorned in carved plaster. A newly designed garden frames the front of the building and continues across the right side of the property to the rear depth of the lot.
The 8th floor provides a flawless contemporary living environment that boasts a meticulous design and luxurious finishes. Renovated in 2011 with visionary design and meticulous detail to provide the ultimate in luxury and comfort. Wrap-around french doors provide views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and downtown San Francisco. A private entrance off the elevator leads to the front door.
The romance begins immediately upon entry, where all eyes are immediately drawn to the dramatic views, opulent ceiling height, and fine architectural details. The front half of the unit faces North and boasts floor-to-ceiling french doors with original hardware, accentuating an airy, light-filled space. This expansive area has been intentionally created and structurally constructed to remove all posts in order to maximize the view and the feeling of spaciousness. A wood-paneled den with a fireplace and multiple windows is perfectly situated at the end of the main public rooms. These open spaces provide an unforgettable place for entertaining as well as hosting more intimate gatherings.
The open kitchen is not only a chef's dream but also a quintessential entertaining space with bar seating and a built-in banquette area. Top-of-the-line appliances feature a blend of Miele, Wolf, and Sub-Zero and marble counters. This culinary epicenter of the home also features multiple prep spaces, dual sinks, substantial built-ins, and a tasteful juxtaposition of metal and wood design giving it the joie de vie. View windows in the kitchen allow incredible natural light and additional viewing from the building’s unique vantage point atop the city and the Bay. Directly off the kitchen, there is a laundry center and some additional built-in storage, which further accentuate the feeling of space in this residence. A service elevator is located off the kitchen.
The serene primary suite boasts a spa-like bath and a walk-in closet. This peaceful retreat features captivating East views of the San Francisco skyline and Pacific Heights. There is a second bedroom suite with South West exposure complete with an en-suite bathroom. The third bedroom has Western exposure and a separate full bathroom. A spacious home office/library with built-in seating and bookshelves is located off the main entry.
