Glorious indoor/outdoor living is the name of the game at this three-level home tucked between Mission Dolores and Noe Valley, which has been carefully renovated in steel, glass, concrete, and wood to fit seamlessly in its surrounds.
The elemental beauty melds lush greenery with polished interiors that open onto outdoor spaces, including a charming backyard with a succulent garden and bamboo grove ringed by shade trees.
Thoughtful elements appear throughout all three levels of the home, including Venetian-style plaster fireplaces in the family room and master bedroom; Foscarini pendant lights; skylights over the staircase; and a Heath-tiled backsplash and quartz waterfall island in the kitchen. Hints of alabaster and wood traverse the house, from cabinets to the paneled tub upstairs with stunning natural grain. Designed for lounging, the home has multiple seating areas from a formal living room to carved out, sun-soaked reading nooks.
This house aims at keeping love alive with plenty of personal space—no more waiting for your honey to finish shaving so you can brush your teeth, or finding justifications for your ever-growing shoe collection. On the third floor, two suites each have luxe custom baths, dual closets, and double sinks. Downstairs, another private suite has full kitchen, bath and ample closet space for guests (or for a tenant who can help cover that $4 million mortgage).
Enjoy the views of the treetops and the San Francisco skyline from the second story terrace.
