Enter a world of calm and beauty: this custom residence is an oasis, where the excitement of the shimmering city is tempered by an exquisite embrace of spectacular gardens, lofty scale, artisanal quality, luxury, and surrounding Potrero light.
Substantially re-built in 2005, this custom, three-level residence, is an innovative Alan Levy design, incorporating a stunning Scavollini kitchen, Japanese inspired detailing, three beautifully articulated outdoor spaces. A formal entry includes robust, custom entry storage: shoes, bags, coats and book bags, all neatly in place. The front parlor functions as guest room, office, lounge. The core of the home, a central open courtyard emulates a majestic stand of Cedars, and connects the living spaces with an easy going, indoor/outdoor flow, including massive private deck capturing luxurious sun. Anchored by a polished concrete floor at the garden level, the family/media room is clad walls of glass, open to the lush, exotic garden. A custom home office with visibility the courtyard and garden beyond, climate-controlled wine room, utility and laundry room, additional fridge and storage are gathered here: well-orchestrated, hardworking, functional components of the home.
Upstairs the primary suite faces the city with a private terrace, spa-like bath, custom closets and enclosed by an elegant Shoji screen. Two additional bedrooms with garden views and a pristine additional bath share this intimate, lofty floor. Warmed by radiant heat, solar-powered – the many green features of this residence are matched by the best home technology. The carefully selected, elemental materials: wood, stone, concrete, copper, lend a hand-crafted, warm modernism to the well-planned residence.
Amenities include Flora Grubb designed garden, craftsmanship of Japanese master carpenters, Sonos touch sound system and architect’s drawings for an additional level.
All in a treasured North slope location.
