The Healthiest Penthouse In San Francisco, $24.5MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Taking the concept of a healthy home to new heights (literally) this extraordinary double penthouse in Pacific Heights was purchased as raw space directly from the developer, and then in 2018 work began on an interior built exclusively from organic, non-toxic and formaldehayde-free products ranging from insulation to adhesives and paint finishes, along with new systems, to create the purest air available in an interior. Completed this past November 2021, it’s not only completely new but never occupied, and represents a unique opportunity.
Beyond just pure air, the clients specified comprehensive electromagnetic shielding, which protects the home from WiFi and radio frequency radiation from units below as well as through the wall and windows. The comprehensive new infrastructure includes automated control of lighting, shades, climate (both radiant & forced air), media & security.
Beyond that, it’s a home that wears its tech cred lightly and remains an exceptionally lovely place to live designed by Michael Tauber Architecture; an aerie with grand entertaining spaces, high ceilings and open views over Pacific Heights to the Golden Gate. Above, the living room, and below, the huge family/media/game room at the opposite end of home.
The spacious open kitchen with adjacent dining and lounge areas.
Below, the sybaritic primary suite. There are three principal ensuite bedrooms, plus a flexible office or home gym with a bath and sauna, and a staff suite, for a total of five bedrooms.
