Rarely does a residence offer views of the Bay to the north and also of the City to the south – all from one room. This two-level cooperative apartment offers those coveted north-south views from both the large living room and master suite. Enjoy views of Alcatraz Island, Aquatic Park and across the Bay to the Marin hills juxtaposed with City views of the Pyramid, City Hall and all the way to Twin Peaks. Simply stunning! Evenings are magical.
Every element of the apartment has been designed for sophisticated City living. Whether it is the mirrored gallery, Calcutta marble gourmet kitchen, wide plank dark wood floors, marble and limestone baths or the suede-lined powder room – elegance was the design principal consistently applied. Structural beauty is provided by the residence’s central staircase with its exquisite iron balustrade.
The floor plan works superbly thanks to a renovation that opened walls and expanded the main rooms. On the first level, the large living room is centered on the decorative fireplace flanked by walls of display shelves. The stunning gourmet kitchen is open, across an expanse of white marble counter, to the dining room. Complete with cabinetry and enviable view, the office is on the main floor. The powder room serves this entertaining floor of the residence.
On the second level, the generous dual-view master bedroom suite includes several closets and two full baths. A washer/dryer is found in one of the closets of the guest bedroom suite. Storage abounds throughout. Recessed lighting is strategically positioned to showcase art.
