Spectacular single-family home plus guest cottage with stunning downtown views! This certified LEED platinum home was rebuilt in 2014 and designed by David Marlatt of DMN Architect, along with a complete renovation of the 1895 detached cottage on the lot. Both the main house and cottage have been ‘smart home’ equipped with wiring for sound, lighting and security and the property includes some incredible eco-friendly design elements including solar roof panels on the guest cottage, bamboo decking, polycarbonate walls, energy star appliances, roof, window and wall insulation, and an electric car charger in the garage.
This home makes for a fabulous entertaining space with soaring 10’ ceilings, walls of glass facing downtown skyline views from the living room and master, and stylish outdoor spaces including a central patio and a spectacular view roof deck.
Entering from the quiet, residential street and up a flight of stairs you reach the central garden patio, surrounded by lush landscaping and perfect for al fresco entertaining – complete with string lights and a patio heater. The inviting entry to the main house features rich dark hardwood flooring, built-in cabinetry and coat closet, and a stylish powder room, as well as a built-in dumbwaiter that goes to all levels – convenient for transporting groceries from the garage!
Up a few steps, the space opens to a gorgeous great room, presenting living and dining areas framed by large windows facing a dramatic downtown skyline view. A modern, architectural glass and steel staircase leads upstairs, lending a sophisticated and open feel to the space. The sleek kitchen is open to the living room with a breakfast bar/peninsula and is equipped with luxurious stainless appliances including a Miele 5 burner cooktop with retractable vent, a built-in oven, a dishwasher, a wine refrigerator, and a built-in espresso maker. Walls of white cabinetry contrast beautifully with black quartz countertops and wood and glass open shelving around the stainless sink.
Up the incredible contemporary staircase, lined by an eco-friendly polycarbonate wall, the entire second level is a dedicated master suite space. The spacious master bedroom opens to a viewing balcony that faces the impressive outlooks of the San Francisco skyline and the Bay beyond. A spa-like ensuite master bathroom is outfitted with a double floating vanity with great storage and quartz countertops, an in-wall toilet, a glass-enclosed walk-in shower, and a wonderful soaking tub. The suite is completed by a fantastic walk-in closet with custom built-ins.
Off the second-floor hallway is a glass door leading to stairs to the incredible roofdeck – the crown jewel of the home. The space has been kitted out for entertaining, with a wet bar, Liebherr refrigerator and TEC grill, pavers, a glass windshield, and built-in speakers. There is ample room for multiple seating and lounging areas to admire the 360 degree views of the Castro hills, with seating area centered around a gas outdoor fireplace, directly positioned for maximum exposure of the exceptional view of the downtown skyline all the way to the Bay.
On the lower floor of the home are two generous bedrooms, both with custom shades, built-in speakers and cabinetry, and bright picture windows facing 19th Street. These bedrooms share an attractive bathroom, featuring a glass-enclosed porcelain tile shower, floating vanity, and in-wall toilet. Adjacent to the bathroom is a convenient laundry room with stacked Samsung washer and dryer, sink, cabinetry, and folding space. Under the stairs is a storage nook, which would be perfect for wine storage.
Off the entry is a two-car side-by-side garage with electric car charging station. This exceptional home comes move-in ready with thoughtful upgrades including Nest thermostats and automatic shades.
Adjacent to the main house, fully separated by the central patio space, is an 1895 guest cottage that has been meticulously remodeled and redesigned. The cottage contains a designer kitchen with Miele appliances and a quartz center island with breakfast bar, open to a sizeable living room. There is a serene guest bedroom with closet, and an ensuite designer bathroom with an in-wall toilet and glass-enclosed walk-in shower. At the back of the cottage is a private and peaceful outdoor space under a mature tree, surrounded by bamboo.
This property, with a 95 Walkscore, is located near all the great shops and restaurants that Dolores Park, Eureka Valley, and Noe Valley has to offer. Stroll to nearby Mollie Stone’s Market, Soul Cycle, Philz Coffee, and admire the views from Kite Hill. The combination of amazing LEED Platinium design and construction, remarkable views, great light, and fantastic outdoor spaces makes this home a truly special find.
