First Look: The Kellogg House On Potrero Hill, $10M￼￼Author:Philip Ferrato
Perched on an enviable corner site near the summit of Portero Hill, the Mid-Century classic Kellogg House possesses an unrivaled panorama of San Francisco. Originally built in 1948 by architect F.J. McCarthy for the Kellogg family, it reflects the lean but exuberant optimism of postwar American architecture and the contemporaneous Case Study Program, and was immaculately refreshed and expanded by Serrao Architecture in 2015.
The steel and glass central stairway provides a three-story display and book case, and at the top, the primary bedroom suite is the ideal retreat, with a luxe bath and incredible views, along with a terrace and firepit screened by moveable glass louvers, a signature feature throughout– echoing McCarthy’s original wood louvers downstairs.
The main level is open, with a superb kitchen, with the dining and seating areas flanking the fireplace; the television has been seamlessly ntegrated into a wall of cabinets.
Along with a multitude of patios and decks and perches to take in the view, there are sheltered spaces to enjoy.
