Quintessential San Francisco views, sweeping across the city from the heart of the bay to the Golden Gate Bridge, are a hallmark of this rare Beaux Arts residence in San Francisco’s desirable Cow Hollow neighborhood.
Spanning approximately 6,300 square feet on three graceful levels and topped with an alluring Golden Gate–view roof deck, the home blends classical decorative details with modern designer fixtures and appointments, creating a uniquely stylish home without peer.
Beaux Arts’ characteristic “hierarchy of spaces” is evident here, moving from noble rooms with grand entrances to more practical ones.
The main living room epitomizes time-honored formality, with eye-catching moldings, French entry doors, hardwood floors, and an elegantly embellished fireplace centered amid built-in bookshelves and cabinets, exemplifying the symmetry for which the Beaux Arts aesthetic is known.
With its beamed ceiling and dramatic moldings, the great room is an exercise in timelessly welcoming style, with a relaxed living area flowing easily and openly to a dining area.
Adjoining both through gracefully concave glass doors is a balcony with a striking view of the city and the bay.
On the home’s lower level is a stylish media and game room with an open, inviting floor plan and multiple sets of French doors leading to a deck and the beautifully landscaped gardens.
The chef’s kitchen keeps ornamentation to a modern minimum, allowing for efficient pursuit of culinary feats in a sleek setting.
The master suite — one of six bedrooms in the home — is handsomely arrayed and includes a sitting area with a classically detailed fireplace.
Its spa-like en suite bath includes a dressing room. While each of the bedrooms displays a relaxed romanticism characteristic of Beaux Arts, the five baths lean toward modernity, with polished contemporary fixtures, abundant glass, clean lines, and minimalist surfaces. The home’s overall palette is neutrally light and bright but sophisticated.
An elevator connects the levels of the home, which includes a security system and garage space for up to five cars and is offered fully furnished for a true turnkey experience. Cow Hollow, nestled between the Presidio, Russian Hill, the Marina district, and Pacific Heights, affords proximity to numerous desirable amenities, including the restaurants, boutiques, and spas of Union Street.
