In San Francisco, the three blocks of Broadway Street between Lyon and Divisadero, known familiarly as the Gold Coast, are strewn with some of the city’s—perhaps the nation’s—most desirable estates. This masterfully conceived 11,400-square-foot residence is no exception, with its striking modern façade, purely sleek interiors—including seven bedrooms—and views stretching from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Oakland Hills. Although impressive in size and spaciousness, it maintains a supreme level of privacy and intimacy, with sophisticated finishes and thoughtful amenities that allow for the ultimate life of “curated comfort.” Custom-built over a roughly four-year period, the home took the place of a 19th-century clapboard cottage and was the first new construction on the north side of Broadway in more than two decades. For its foundation, fifty foundation piers were sunk in bedrock. A solar water-heating system and three underground water tanks gathering runoff for garden irrigation helped the home earn a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Platinum certification, making it the largest residence—and one of only a rare few in the city—to earn this coveted ranking for ecological consciousness. A regal foyer clad in marble and fumed oak introduces the home and flows gracefully toward its heart: stylish living and dining rooms as well as a comfortably combined family room and Bulthaup-appointed kitchen, which enjoys the glorious view and opens to a grilling terrace. A distinctive almond-shaped central staircase rises to the next level, where the master suite capitalizes on the stunning view. The suite comprises a lavish yet relaxing bedroom and a luxurious marble-clad bath with a unique “curtain” of glass. On the open, airy penthouse level, a majestic arched and vaulted ceiling towers above a drawing room, where custom-glazed windows and doors focus every eye on the sweeping vista of the San Francisco Bay, dramatically vibrant by day, glittering by night. Furthering the allure is a top-floor terrace with an outdoor kitchen. Just below the main living level, the garage level includes two guest suites, a kitchenette, and a spacious laundry area. A home theater with an exceptional sound system and double-insulated walls, an 850-bottle wine cellar with Colorado-crafted steel doors, and a wellness suite with a sauna, a steamshower, and a fitness studio occupy the home’s enticing “spa” level.
