Spare, Minimal and Elegant In Noe Valley, $7M

Where: 645 Duncan Street, Noe Valley
Asking: $6,995,000
What: An exceptional new house that checks all our boxes. Designed by the minimalists Edmunds + Lee Architects and just recently completed, the 5-level, 4-bed, 5-bath rises on a steep lot with the principal entertaining rooms on the two upper levels, all accessible by an elevator from the garage.

Vertical: Up from the street, the main entrance is through an atrium with a planted wall, permitting soft, filtered light throughout the interior.

With five levels, stairs are a major design element here, and we’re grateful that iron was chosen over the ubiquitous glass railings we see everywhere. On the entry level (below) there's a welcoming foyer, a flexible family/media area and a guest suite with it's own outdoor space.

Principal gathering spaces are on the fourth floor, set between open views of San Francisco and the very private walled garden.

What We Love: With 5000 square feet, there’s a lot to embrace, but the bathrooms are outstanding. From the master suite spa bath to the guest baths on the main and penthouse levels, the luxe finishes and craftsmanship make the $7M price tag a lot more comprehensible.

With a fireplace and a dressing room, the master suite occupies most of the bedroom level.

Immediately accessible from the garage, there's a spacious laundry/pantry and enclosed wine room, both adjacent to the elevator– but there's also a second laundry room on the bedroom level. Because who wants to schlep sheets?

Set back and not visible from the street, the top floor penthouse could be a sensational home office with a wet bar, full bath and open to a roof deck.
