Envisioned by internationally-renowned architect Andrew Skurman and interior designer Suzanne Tucker, 1001 California #3 employs authentic French design to create an exceptional entertainer’s home. Perched atop Nob Hill, this 3,474 square foot apartment encompasses grand entertaining rooms: handsome library, exquisite, circular dining room, chef’s kitchen with topline appliances, unforgettable powder room and two generously appointed bedroom suites. Every turn meets perfection in architecture & design. Neighborhood outlooks include the Mark Hopkins & Fairmont Hotels, Pacific Union Club as well as glimpses of the buildings of Downtown and the greenery of Huntington Park. Amenities include a round-the-clock attended lobby, sophisticated lighting, shading, and climate control systems. Apartment #3 at 1001 California is a one-of-a-kind home in the heart of San Francisco’s favorite neighborhood.
A library/office clad in white oak panels lies adjacent to the dramatic lacquered dining room. The round room and gold ceiling are anchored by a showstopping chandelier of tapered candles, setting the room aglow for formal entertaining. Mirrored pocket doors create a formal and private setting and reflect the warmth of the chandelier, candelabras, and sconces.
The large kitchen boasts an abundance of oak cabinetry and topline appliances, highlighted by an Eiffel Tower-shaped hood set above an oversized island – topped with a single slab of très chic black granite. An ornate hand-painted tortoise shell motif adorns the powder room, furthering the “wow” factor felt throughout the apartment.
The curvilinear hallway arrives at the master suite, replete in a subdued strié palette of elegant and serene ambiance around the beautiful four-poster bed. The spa-inspired bath features a free standing wood panel bath tub, inlaid marble floor, large bay window, dual custom-designed dressing areas, and two generous walk-in closets. At the opposite end of the apartment, the den and adjacent guest bedroom suite both feature a view on California Street, the Pacific Union Club, and Grace Cathedral. The den and bedroom combine to create a generous suite to accommodate long-term guests.
Amenities include lighting, shading, security and climate control systems, including air-conditioning to several rooms. While the truly one-of-a-kind home in the heart of San Francisco’s most renowned neighborhood has been exquisitely designed, 1001 California #3 incorporates possibilities for customization to suit the vision of the new owner.
Built in 1914 in the Haussmann style, the blush-hued 1001 California is a portrait of classical San Francisco living. The Beaux-Arts building has a pedigree of past residents and a reputation for excellent management, including 24/7 door staff and security protocols. Its central location offers close proximity to Huntington Park, Union Square, and the Financial District. The building has just completed an extensive, 3+ year exterior water-proofing program from roof to decks, glass doors, balcony wrought iron railings and facade restoration.
