The epitome of sleek, sophisticated contemporary architecture, this captivating three-bedroom residence is built on a slope on the highest hill in the coveted neighborhood of Telegraph Hill. Designed by local architectural luminary Lewis Butler, it is the result of a painstaking decade-long development, which resulted in four levels of serene private quarters and stylish living and entertaining spaces that enjoy some of the finest views in the city. White walls and surfaces of metal, wood, and glass create striking lines and artful tonal contrasts. An elevator offers easy, convenient access to each floor, while a glass-enclosed central staircase with floating treads links the four levels in an airy, effortless flow. Ceilings soar to lofty heights, and walls are ideal for the display of art. The entry level consists of an inviting living room that gazes out over the neighborhood. An eye-catching Ortal gas fireplace adds contemporary character and warmth. Just above is the light-filled kitchen and dining area, which is appointed with a wine chiller, a Gaggenau refrigerator-freezer, gas cooktop and microwave, a Dornbracht faucet, an island with counter seating, abundant streamlined Henrybuilt cabinets, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city, and a picture-perfect view of the Golden Gate Bridge in the dining area. The primary suite occupies the entirety of the uppermost floor and boasts walls of Fleetwood windows that turn dramatic skyline scenery—including the Transamerica Pyramid—into dynamic art. One wall “disappears” to offer access to a private 25-foot deck with a vista of the Bay Bridge to the Golden Gate Bridge bay and the Golden Gate. The en suite spa-inspired Venetian plaster bath features a soaking tub and a walk-in closet. The home’s two guest bedrooms are accompanied by their own baths and enjoy quiet locations on the first and third floors, where they benefit from verdant views of the surrounding trees and flora. On the ground level is a great room that opens through sliding glass doors to a landscaped terrace with an outlook on the bustling Financial District skyline. High above it all is an enviable landscaped roof deck with glass railings that ensure the breathtaking panorama—which encompasses Coit Tower and both bridges—remains uninterrupted. Other highlights include solar panels, Lutron lighting, radiant heating, air conditioning, and a garage with a car elevator. One of San Francisco’s fabled original Seven Hills and arguably one of the best-known peaks in the world, Telegraph Hill is home to some of the loveliest homes in the city, and its ideal location affords proximity to nearby attractions and amenities. With iconic Coit Tower sitting at the peak of its namesake hill, it has a distinctive character that blends the old and the new and is the perfect perch for reveling in spectacular views of the skyline and the waters of the bay.
