Extraordinary Transformation Of Old Into New On Nob Hill, $16.5M


Originally built in 1909 and now ready for 2019 and beyond, the vintage townhouse at 1350 Jones Street has undergone a complete, multi-year renovation, preserving its elegant street facade in the historic Nob Hill neighborhood. What’s not so historic? Adding a new top floor to hold the open entertaining spaces– kitchen, living and dining areas– set back and invisible from the street but exposing mesmerizing, postcard-quality views.

The Team: A project of this caliber requires outstanding collaboration– development partners Joanna Wong, Tami Epstein and Howard Epstein plus partner/general contractor Chris Durkin; architecture by the firm of Dumican Mosey; staging and art by Dzine. Most of the furniture is by Piero Lissoni and available for purchase. The top floor, below, night and day.

The top floor’s folded roof soars, and clerestory windows infuse the space with light.

Getting There: An elevator accesses all four floors directly from the foyer; a dramatic, handcrafted stair in Venetian plaster and walnut curves around a light fixture created especially for the space by Sand Studios.

It’s crisp and elegant, but warm woods, stone and a soft color story take this beyond the “white box”

On the ground floor beyond the foyer (and coveted 2-car garage) is another entertaining/media space with a temperature-controlled wine room and a secluded patio.

Three bedrooms and two baths are on the second floor; the master suite occupies the entire third floor. In addition to a spa bath and a pair of dressing rooms, there’s this elegantly compact and private study.
