In Glen Park, a Luxe New House With Grand Views of San Francisco, $10MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 143 Laidley Street, Glen Park
What: A stunning new house that manages to be both warmly welcoming and elegant. Beyond the austere redwood facade is a sheltered entry garden; the 3-level house unfolds to offer a grand, top-floor entertaining space plus three ensuite bedrooms on the level below, and finally a family/media room and bedroom open to the garden.
Taking in the views, the back of the house is as open as the front is closed.
The Neighborhood: Once a sleepy, jumbled enclave of hippies and working-class San Franciscans attracted by modest housing costs, Glen Park has been transformed by Tech workers, designers and executives over the past two decades. Like Noe Valley, the hilly neighborhood has both great views and enviable transit options, and is now dotted with works by some of San Francisco’s best architects and developers.
The Team: Development and interiors by Ofer and Noa Doitel, working with architect Kelly Condon, and landscape design by Patrick Lannan. Below, easy entertaining with a main-level kitchen open to the living room, plus a lower kitchen and wine room, just off the media/family room and garden.
What We Love: Simplicity and clarity are tough to achieve in residential design, and they’ve both been achieved here. Below, the master bedroom and its sybaritic spa bath.
