Live Like A Top Stylist On Nob Hill, $1.8MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Over the past two decades, the celebrated interior designer Arthur McLaughlin has had a subtle but outsize role in the buying and selling of San Francisco real estate. As the principal of Arthur McLaughlin & Associates, he has probably staged more luxury listings for sale than any other designer in town, including some of the most expensive. Working from a vast warehouse of carpets, furniture, accessories and treasures, his teams have seamlessly created aspirational interiors designed to pry open the checkbooks of potential buyers. And as more properties were seen online first and in person second, their visual impact spread as well.
Having sold his eponymous styling firm and now moving on to a new venture, Arthur McLaughlin Interior Specialists, McLaughlin and his husband Steven Stiller have put their 2-bed, 2-bath Parisian-inspired flat on the market. Flawlessly buffed and polished, serving as either an exquisite pied-a-terre or primary residence, this is a quintessential San Francisco residence, in an elegant Belle Epoque building facing Grace Cathedral.
The flat’s principal gathering spaces retain their original gumwood moldings, restored and augmented by McLauglin, along with classic rift-cut oak floors laid in a herringbone pattern. The exuberant floor-to-ceiling and very Parisian interpretation of Palladian windows were the height of chic in 1910 when the building was constructed– and still are.
There’s a media room/office in addition to a lovely pair of ensuite bedrooms.
