High Above San Francisco, An Extraordinary Refuge by Regan Bice, $6MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Astonishing views from an elegantly minimalist, shingled aerie tucked in next to the Sutro Forest Preserve in Clarendon Heights.
Originally built in the ’80s, the property underwent a multi-year renovation under the direction of architect Regan Bice, and like so many homes in this quiet (and surprisingly little-known) neighborhood, the elegantly austere street front gives little hint of what’s inside. On the main level, just beyond the entry, formal dining room, office and half-bath, the dramatic living room/kitchen is perched above the view.
One level down is the master suite, a pair of bedrooms a bath and plus a spacious family/media room.
The master suite bath is an enviable composition of acid-etched glass, stone, tile and wood– with a view.
The lowest level– open to a deck and the garden– contains an au pair/guest suite fitted out with the same exceptional level of materials and detailing as the rest of the house.
