HANDSOME CONTEMPORARY DESIGN - MARINA
Offered for: $7,000,000
EAG Studio’s brilliant design transformed the residence into a contemporary single-family home with comfortable gathering spaces and an au pair/income suite. Indoor-outdoor living was the priority, along with a floor plan designed for today’s lifestyle. The home is a symphony of natural tones, providing a perfect backdrop for art and furnishings. The result is bold, daring and incredibly chic.
Tailor-made to balance privacy with togetherness, serenity with rambunctiousness, and high style with durability – all trademarks of EAG Studio’s design sensibility – this home really works. The harmonious architecture maintains a respectful relationship to the neighborhood, while offering a new vision.
The main level’s open plan is designed for entertaining with the family and dining-living rooms flanking the well-equipped kitchen. A deck with grilling station, the walk-in pantry, wine and coffee station with built-in espresso machine and long curved Calacatta Nuvo quartz island distinguish the gas kitchen. Clerestory windows rest above the wall of cleaned-lined German-made cabinets to house all cooking essentials. Wedge-shaped open shelves above a stone ledge provide opportunities for display and serve as dining side board. A discreet powder room and coat/utility closets complete this level.
The third-floor bedroom level offers a coveted plan with four bedrooms and three baths. The private master suite includes dual closets and a master bath with soaking tub, gorgeous walk-in shower, two sinks and private WC. Materials are well-chosen and artfully incorporated; storage is abundant.
The fourth level is simply magic. Views abound in all directions from inside and out. The lounge opens to the east terrace with cityscape views. The office opens to the west terrace with partial views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Palace of Fine Arts. A full bath is located adjacent to the office/guest bedroom. Stairs lead to a roof deck via a motorized retractable skylight, where one can enjoy 360-degree views encompassing even more iconic San Francisco vistas and the water. Think Fleet Week, Fourth of July, Opening Day on the Bay and more.
At ground level is a complete suite with 5th bedroom & bath, auxiliary kitchen, large family/media room opening to triangular landscaped yard with turf. A steel wall fence is filled with river stones, creating a unique outdoor haven. The level includes two-car tandem parking, mechanical, electrical car charger circuit, and additional storage.
Truly handsome inside and out, the front façade of this home consists of split-face pale grey limestone at the ground level and a similar hue grey integral stucco above where it meets the black standing seam metal mansard roof.
This home is as smart as it is beautiful. Recessed ipad stations strategically located throughout allow you to control Wi-Fi, zoned sound system, lighting, radiant heat via Nest, security and more. Solar power, custom lighting and electronically-controlled translucent staircase windows are just some of the special touches incorporated by the designer.
