The Clay Jones Penthouse
On a corner at the highest point on San Francisco’s Nob Hill, the Clay Jones building is a piece of its city’s history.
Stylistically innovative and luxurious for its time, the elegant Art Deco skyscraper was designed by architect Albert Larsen and built in 1927; nearly a century later, it continues to command its perch.
Occupying the building’s top two floors is this exceptional four-bedroom penthouse, which feels historic in its own right, combining unique contemporary flair with classical touches and 360-degree views that encompass nearly all of the city’s iconic landmarks. Among its enviable amenities are air conditioning and two deeded parking spaces in the building’s secure garage.
Ideal for both relaxed private living and the most sophisticated entertaining, the home is accessed via a keyed elevator, which opens to a foyer where a vintage Parisian clock gives a respectful nod to the building’s decorative past.
Beyond, the majestic living room stretches across the building’s entire width and boasts an eye-catching raised sitting area, a mirrored wet bar, and windows on three sides offering dazzling views day and night.
Textured wall coverings and bespoke light fixtures contribute to the captivating style of the formal dining room.
The spacious kitchen has been impeccably appointed with top-caliber appliances and distinctive counters of white-veined black marble.
Also on the main level, the refined and relaxing master bedroom and its en suite bath benefit from magnificent views and light.
The library or media room pays homage to the home’s Art Deco heritage with handsome wood paneling; this space is perfect for both quiet contemplation and appreciating dramatic sunsets and vistas of the Golden Gate.
A striking steel and glass staircase offers access to one peaceful bedroom suite, an inviting lounge area that includes an additional wet bar and wine storage, and a remarkable private terrace with sweeping panoramas—at approximately 575 square feet, it is one of the largest terraces in the city.
This is the perfect aerie for appreciating views of a storied locale in a significant city that, well into the twenty-first century, continues to thrive and make history.
