Custom Designer Luxury View Home
A newly designed and re-built custom home by architect Chris McMahon, AIA and custom builder Alan Burradell, is a choice location within one of San Franciscoâ€™s most desired central neighborhoods; Eureka Valley. This newer home occupies the end of a block and benefits from a larger view corridor and an unattached side which is rare in a central City neighborhood.
Thoughtful design and finish work are hallmarks of this home. From the paneled front entry to the handcrafted wainscoting, crown molding and trim; it is a visual treat to see a residence of such scale. And, with all the additional desired amenities such as view; garden; parking; walk able neighborhood; proximity to parks, transportation and shopping; and streetscape of quiet intertwined European type streets.
Once inside the formal entry, traditional architectural elements of a staircase and bold columns along with finishes such as rift cut oak hardwood flooring and moldings set the stage. The traditional is then accentuated and punctuated with contemporary elements of two skylights over the stairwell and an open view corridor through the home to the downtown view. These two design elements expand the visceral experience and pull you into experience the space. The floor plan has been designed to produce either a traditional separation with plantation shutters or conversely a large open entertaining space in the California tradition.
The first floor is easily accessible from the front sidewalk by four steps. This level is raised from the rear due to the topography of the neighborhood which provides the view.
The LIVING ROOM and DINING ROOM are framed by columns and have traditional San Francisco elements of a bay window and fireplace. The unattached side of the home allows for rare East side windows providing not only light but view too.
The KITCHEN and FAMILY ROOM are a central focal point and will be a magnet for anyone entertaining as well as cooking or just “hanging out” around the house. The amenities of the kitchen reflect the thoughtful design which runs throughout the residence. And the large window line culminating in a seamless glass corner facing downtown and the Bay Bridge creates the real sense of being surrounded by one of our Cityâ€™s most famous views. The kitchen and family room will surely be a favorite spot.
The first floor is completed with a custom tiled POWDER ROOM boasting rich red tile. Itâ€™s the hidden “jewel” of the main floor and a visual treat.
The second floor provides the THREE BEDROOMS and TWO BATHS that is a consistent request by homebuyers in the area. The MASTER SUITE is a virtual apartment unto itself with a spacious custom tiled bath featuring view windows even in the shower stall and soaking tub, a double vanity and custom finished walk in closet. The bedroom was designed with the placement of the bed the central feature so that when in bed the view is part of the experience. A balcony on the view side allows for double doors to be opened further expanding the space. This bedroom is “all about the view”, the sparkling lights of downtown, the City Hall dome, the Bay Bridge and the sparkling East Bay hills.
The TWO FRONT BEDROOMS on the Second floor have a shared bath with custom tile and fixtures as well as convenient under counter ASKO washer and dryer. One bedroom has a PENTROOM accessible via ladder for reading space, contemplation or view gazing.
The house continues with a lower level floor below the first floor. This floor expands the bedroom count with an additional FOURTH BEDROOM and a LIBRARY or FIFTH BEDROOM and a huge THIRD CUSTOM BATH as well as a fully appointed MEDIA ROOM with a bar, a wine closet and a fully outfitted LAUNDRY ROOM. Both rooms on this level have walk-in closets.
The MEDIA ROOM has a fireplace and double doors on the view side to a deck overlooking the garden thereby expanding the internal space by bringing the outside in. Designer finishes on this level continue with travertine tile, a wall mounted toilet, built-in cabinetry and a custom deck railing. The stairs wrapping around the media room lead down to the garden level.
The GARDEN LEVEL has a SIXTH BEDROOM or MULTI PURPOSE ROOM with double closets and French doors out to a patio and the garden as well as a large SPA BATH. This bath is custom tiled with marble and travertine and finished with designer fixtures providing a shower and spa experience with a large shower stall and multi-head steam shower. In addition, there is a large pantry/storage room which acts as a service entrance to the garden and garage.
The GARDEN is designed by Penney Magrane of Magrane Associates Landscape Design, one of the Bay Areaâ€™s preeminent award winning landscape designers. It is an extension of the living space and creates an exciting outdoor entertaining space as well as a beautiful transition from the garage into the house. And, having an unattached side the outdoor space has easy access from the private alley that runs behind a number of homes in this quaint neighborhood.
The TWO CAR GARAGE is at the rear of the property and accessible from the rear alley.
