Contemporary Telegraph Hill residence featuring a fabulous 360 degree view roofdeck! This beautifully updated, modern home encompasses three levels of living space and includes 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, plus entirely separate guest quarters (studio/1 bath). Period details include wainscoting, hardwood floors, high, coved ceilings and charming moldings and woodwork, blending seamlessly with modern upgrades. Entering on the first level is a gracious entry, coat closet, and sprawling family room/, with a built-in media center and cabinetry and a wet bar and half bath – perfect for entertaining. Off the family room is an enclosed patio for outdoor seating, and on the other end of this level is a wonderful wine cellar with 300-bottle storage and a small bar for tastings. Up the modern, open staircase is the main (second) level of the home, featuring a formal living room at the front with a welcoming wood-burning fireplace and two bay windows, allowing for multiple seating areas. At the back of this level is a large open kitchen, renovated with deluxe appliances including a Subzero refrigerator, Miele double ovens and microwave, dishwasher, two sinks, and a five-burner gas cooktop with hood. Glass tile backsplash adorns granite countertops, and the breakfast bar is open to a lovely dining area with windows to the patio. Around the corner is a spacious laundry room with a side-by-side washer and dryer and storage area, as well as a door to the enclosed patio with a turfed area for pets. Also on this level is a sizeable bedroom and a contemporary bathroom with a glass-enclosed shower.
Up a skylit staircase, the third level houses three bedrooms and two bathrooms. A luxurious and expansive primary suite boasts two window bays, one with a window seat and an inviting seating area for relaxing. The suite contains a walk-in closet and a sleek ensuite bathroom with a soaking tub, a glass-shower, built-in speakers, and a quartz-topped vanity with an in-wall faucet. Two other generous bedrooms have ample closet space and share a hall bathroom with a shower over tub. Back stairs lead to the crown jewel of the home: a full roof deck with sweeping Golden Gate Bridge views, Alcatraz, Coit Tower, and the glittering downtown skyline including the Transamerica building and Salesforce tower.
On the lower level, off the family room, are separate guest quarters or a fifth bedroom suite with a separate entrance. This legal studio features hardwood floors, west-facing windows, and an ensuite bathroom with a glass-enclosed shower. On the ground floor is an exceptionally large 4-car garage (in tandem). Just blocks from picturesque Pioneer Park and Coit Tower, this Telegraph Hill location offers convenient access to downtown and transportation, within walking distance to North Beach shops and restaurants around nearby Washington Square Park, Joe DiMaggio Playground, and the Embarcadero and waterfront.
Telegraph Hill is one of the city's oldest neighborhoods, inhabited long before the gold rush by the men who worked on the nearby waterfront. Today Telegraph Hill is home to the largest concentration of pre-1870 buildings in San Francisco, some of which predate the gold rush. The neighborhood still bears witness to those glory days. As ships unloaded their cargo, a quarry at the top of Telegraph Hill supplied the rocks they needed for ballast, and today the exposed cliff face above Broadway remains one of the neighborhood's defining features.
Telegraph Hill is famed for its Italianate homes, Carpenter Gothic, and charming cottages with their steeply pitched roofs and ornate wooden scrollwork. Those examples of old San Francisco are joined by newer additions including modernist homes by noted architects Richard Neutra, Gardner Dailey, and William Wurster.
Coit Tower, named after the heiress who donated the funds to honor San Francisco's firefighters, dominates the skyline of this residential community just above Chinatown and North Beach. While steep, the slopes of Telegraph Hill lead to the financial district, Fisherman's Wharf, and the waterfront, making this an extremely walkable neighborhood. The Filbert Street Steps, one of the many wooden walkways that crisscross this community, provides a pathway up the hill from Levi Plaza. Fortified with a meal from Il Fornaio, climbers can take the steps to Coit Tower, past flowering community gardens, and towering trees colonized by rowdy flocks of escaped parrots now gone feral. The view from the top of Coit Tower draws tourists from around the world.
