Originally built in 1923, this Spanish-Mediterranean beauty melds old-world elegance with modern amenities and the access – and incredible views! – of its prime Marina District location. Acclaimed architect David Armour helmed extensive renovations in 2019, hand-restoring period details while updating the interior for today’s living.  

Gorgeous palms frame the entry, setting an inviting tone that continues throughout. A beautiful foyer, warmed by handmade custom tiles, leads upstairs to the main level where you’ll find generous entertaining rooms with great flow. The living room is spacious and sunlit, with a kiva fireplace – a cozy place to gather after dinner in the connected dining room. Wine lovers will appreciate the adjacent temperature-controlled 500+ bottle wine display. The gourmet eat-in kitchen meets every need, full of beauty and light as it gleams with a wide marble island and ultra-upscale S/S appliances and opens to a walkout deck overlooking the garden, perfect for al fresco dining. 

Three bedrooms occupy the third level, each showcasing showroom-quality walk-in closets and en suite bathrooms with heated floors. The primary bath feels especially luxurious, massive in size and appointed with a deep soaking tub, spacious shower, and separate toilet room. The laundry room is conveniently located down the hall.  

The hallmark of the home is the pent room, an expansive retreat defined by stunning 360-degree views of the city, bay, and Golden Gate Bridge. A lounge, professional wet bar, and large terrace make this room ideal for hosting parties or events. For more intimate gatherings, look to the backyard garden, professionally landscaped by Stephanie Green. The welcoming patio area includes an outdoor kitchen, timer-controlled fountain, and gas firepit.  

The lower level hosts the 4th en suite bedroom, easily used as an in-law or au-pair suite with direct access to the yard and garage. The garage itself is something to note, designed with the car enthusiast in mind. It easily accommodates three cars and storage, lined with sleek cabinets. A rear garage door was added to allow you to enjoy the view of your collection from the garden – perhaps while sipping on a tasting from a perfectly chilled sauv blanc.
