Sotheby’s International Realty: The Penthouse at San Francisco’s Historic Clocktower


Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to present a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live within San Francisco’s most visible and historic clocktower. Perched high above South Park, a burgeoning epicenter of industry and technology that embodies San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood, the Clock Tower Penthouse is on the open market for the first time since being offered to the public nearly a quarter century ago. Owning this amazing penthouse also comes with use of the top three adjoining levels, including the interior of the famous tower and the “Clock Room” itself, plus an enormous wrap around view deck.

Imagine taking in panoramic views of The City while the sun casts a bronze glow on the brick buildings of South Beach. Host a lavish dinner party in the spacious formal gathering areas, entertain your guests on the expansive wrap-around view deck, then retire to the library for refreshments while witnessing a dazzling fireworks display over AT&T Park after a Giants victory. Move the soiree up to the game room for recreational pastimes and end the evening relaxing inside the “Clock Room” to experience the glow within, as the sunset bathes the four clock-faces in luminance then fades to night. After dark, the iconic clock-faces come to life yet again, illuminated by the tower’s eye-catching spotlights. Maintenance of the tower, and the clocks themselves are conveniently done by the building’s HOA.

Now considered the crown jewel of the ClockTower Building, the penthouse condominium presents a spacious and open living arrangement that is ideal for comfortable living, in-home work needs, and entertaining. The residence spans over 3,000 sq.ft. and features 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, hardwood and concrete flooring, original brick and concrete walls, exposed steel structural beams, automated window shades, fine appliances in the gourmet kitchen, vaulted ceilings, custom-built cabinetry and shelving, and wide walls of view windows.
