Perfect New Condominiums On Russian Hill, $1.6M & $2.7MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
On the north slope of Russian Hill, perched just above historic Fort Mason and the spectacular Art Deco waterfront of Aquatic Park, this new condominium project translates classic San Francisco residential design within a sleekly contemporary idiom– new construction, designed to fit discreetly into the early-20th Century streetscape.
Thoughtfully, the 3-unit building (we’re looking at the two available units here, a 1-bed/1-bath and a 2-bed/2.5-bath) incorporates shared features hard to find in one building, among them a windowed lobby, an elevator to all floors, a subterranean garage accessed by a car elevator, a lovely walled garden, plus an epic roof deck with views in all directions, complete with its own fully equipped outdoor kitchen.
Interior finishes are both consistent and exceptional across both units, with impeccably crafted cabinetwork that visually unifies the living areas and expanses of wide-plank oak flooring underfoot; to evoke a sense of calm and unity throughout, the architects sought a simple palette of materials and finishes.
The Team: Design by Taylor Lombardo Architects, General Contractor was Design Line Construction, represented by veteran San Francisco agent Gregg Lynn of Sotheby’s International Realty.
Bay windows offer views up and down the street and echo the rest of the neighborhood’s traditional facades.. Below, the master suite of the upper unit.
Below, the main living space of the lower unit. There’s an overscaled floor-to-ceiling window and door to the garden, and more impeccable, cleverly composed cabinetwork integrates the fireplace with a monitor– thus answering the eternal question of where to put the TV.
The shared roof deck and outdoor kitchen, easily accessed from all three units, encompasses wonderful views of the surrounding neighborhood and wide open vistas of the North Bay and Golden Gate.
