Astonishing Views From Clarendon Heights, $6.76MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Simply put, San Francisco is a city of views, and some of the most spectacular are to be found from Clarendon Heights, a quiet neighborhood of expansive, mostly Mid-Century homes just above Cole Valley.
The views are to the north, encompassing the Pacific Ocean on the west all the way to Marin County, Downtown and the East Bay, and the panorama from this handsome c.1956 home is no exception. Completely renovated– including seismic upgrades that permitted the addition of the upper level master suite– the 4-bed, 4.5-bath property came on the market this week asking $6,670,000.
Entry to both the foyer and kitchen is through a garden, a few steps down from street level.
The master suite occupies the entire, newly-built upper level– where in addition to a private office and dressing room, there’s a mind-boggling spa bath.
What We Love: The listing images don’t convey the magical, constantly shifting light and weather observed from this altitude. Plus with the neighborhood’s steep down-sloping lots and stacked floor plans, many of Clarendon Height’s homes are short on easily-accessible outdoor space. Here, the renovation included the garage roof (below) in augmenting the property’s recreational spaces.
