The Choice Residence: St. Regis Residences


San Francisco has long been recognized as one of the most expensive American cities, which is why it is fitting that the megalopolis is now playing host to one of the hottest luxury residences to hit the West Coast market. St. Regis Residences on Third Street has become the talk of the town because of this trophy penthouse property.

 This property certainly lives up to the highest of standards, as it boasts a drool-worthy list of opulent offerings like a state-of-the-art fitness center.

The price of the St. Regis penthouse was recently reduced to $49,000,000. It is a jaw-dropping property to be sure, created by the international award-winning firm Orlando Diaz-Azcuy Design Associates, and at 20,000 square feet, it is considered to be one of San Francisco’s largest personal residences. Six bedrooms, seven full baths, and four half baths are not enough to make us blink, but what about the floor-to-ceiling glass walls that can reach as high as 22 feet in the vast corner living room, family room, and library. The palatial penthouse encompasses the top two floors of the legendary St. Regis building and is designed with a grand, two-story foyer where guests are greeted by a cascading waterfall. The 2,000-square-foot terrace, which is adjacent to both the living room and formal dining room, acts as a magnet, drawing visitors outside for 360-degree views of historic San Franciscan landmarks. Three other terraces also surround the penthouse.

Less is never more in this cosmopolitan city, and therefore this property, dubbed the Museum Tower Penthouse, features a 13-seat home cinema designed by Keith Yates; an executive office suite with conference room; 2,800-square-foot master suite that includes a gym, sauna, steam room, and 525-gallon bath with infinity edge; six garage bays; and a wine cellar. With specs like these, it’s not surprising that the Museum Tower Penthouse at St. Regis won the superlative for the largest penthouse in San Francisco.

Of course, the St. Regis brand is no stranger to superlatives, as it is a name associated with the best of the best. This property certainly lives up to the highest of standards, as it boasts a drool-worthy list of opulent offerings like a state-of-the-art fitness center. Even though these have become standard in today’s luxury condo lifestyle, St. Regis goes above and beyond the competition with its 3,700-square-foot facility that includes bio-mechanically engineered equipment with built-in LCD panels, personal iPods, and a 50-foot-long indoor lap pool. The award-winning Ame restaurant, operated by Hiro Sone and Lissa Doumani, chefs and co-owners of the acclaimed Terra restaurant in Napa Valley, and the flagship, 9,000-square-foot Remède Spa also deserve a mention.

Only time will tell who will become the owner of such an opulent property, but one thing is certain; they will be rewarded with a crème de la crème abode, high up in the sky, in one of America’s voguest cities.
