Views From The Top Of Eureka Valley, $5M


Perched on Grand View Avenue– one of San Francisco’s premier view streets– this newly constructed home designed by John Lum Architecture is a deeply satisfying essay in light and space. And in this city’s culture of blurred boundaries and endless domestic options, the perfect home for any family.

Stacked over four levels, light filters down around a central, atrium-like stairwell with an impeccable railing that looks back to the classic simplicity of 19th Century Shaker design.

Over the past two decades, John Lum has created simple, beautifully crafted modern homes that respect both their San Francisco streetscape and neighborhood– and are actively sustainable– to meet his clients’ needs. Lum discussed his deeply personal and sensitive approach in a chat with CH+D’s Michelle Konstantinovsky last year.

Offering a potential total of 6 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, there’s enough privacy and flexible space for parents, children, the au pair and the visiting in-laws, plus the all-important working and holding meetings at home.

Beyond the foyer, the entry level holds a media room (above) a guest suite and a 2-car garage; the second floor is an open living/dining/kitchen area with panoramic views. The master suite and two additional bedrooms occupy the top floor. Beneath the entry level, another media/family room opens to a deck and the grassy yard, with a flexible office/guest space and a another bedroom suite. Below, the impeccably fitted kitchen. There’s a smaller one on the lower level as well

What We Love: The spidery six-light Serge Mouille ceiling fixture in the lving room; smaller versions in both white and black appear throughout the house.
