45 Glover Street, San Francisco, California 94109(Sold At) $5,550,000
Exquisitely renovated single-family home tucked away on a quiet side street in coveted Russian Hill. This luxurious residence has been meticulously designed from top to bottom with the finest materials, fixtures, and finishes, including the preservation of incredible period details contrasting with modern amenities. Interiors were designed by Lindsey Gerber and featured in Architectural Digest for her juxtaposition of a “moody palette with light, airy moments.”
On the main level is a striking living room with a formal dining area under large windows. Soaring ceilings overhead are adorned with original, 1912 hand-painted wood moldings that have been painstakingly restored. Off the living room is a gorgeous powder room with a large marble sink and stylish Willem Racké Studio wallpaper depicting scenes of San Francisco. At the back of the home is an open chef’s kitchen centering around a sumptuous marble island, with sleek lacquer cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances (Subzero & Miele), marble backsplash, a built-in pantry, and an attached laundry closet with a stacked Electrolux washer and dryer and cabinetry. Open to the kitchen is a family room/breakfast area with a custom, built-in leather banquette and vintage Parisian sconces retrofitted with LED lighting.
Up the glass staircase is the second level, housing three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including an opulent primary suite. The primary suite features a peek at the Golden Gate Bridge from the leftmost window, a walk-in closet with built-ins, a double closet, and an ensuite primary bathroom with Toto Washlet toilet, a glass-enclosed shower, and a floating double vanity. The two other bedrooms are perfect for kids, guests, or offices, both with built-in double closets, large windows facing the southern hills and Sutro Tower, and streaming southern sunlight. These two bedrooms share an attractive bathroom with a shower over tub, and a linen closet off the hallway.
The crown jewel of the home is the top floor’s stunning entertainment level, which showcases a dramatic wraparound terrace with views. Sliding glass doors at either end lead out to two patios with wind-protecting glass railings and lush planting. One patio is uncovered for maximum sunlight exposure, and the other is covered with a concrete firepit, to host year-round gatherings al fresco. Inside, the main family room offers a marble-topped media center and built-in cabinetry concealing all the amenities for entertaining: a wet bar, Fisher Paykel dishwasher, a SubZero ice maker, and a wine refrigerator. There is a chic powder room with silver walls for guests. Floor to ceiling windows and skylights display views in all directions, including to the north to an impressive view of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Palace of Fine Arts, and the Bay, and looking out west and south across the city.
Downstairs is a fabulous media room, family room or fourth bedroom, boasting Venetian plaster walls and ceiling, beautiful built-in shelving and cabinetry, and glass windows and doors leading out to an urban oasis: a paved backyard patio with lush, old-growth cypress trees. Also on this level is a sleek full bathroom with a glass-enclosed shower, and a two-car garage with a Tesla charger. Upgrades include CAD 6 wiring, industrial-grade AV equipment, Sonos, Lutron lighting, custom window treatments, wide plank white oak flooring, and more. No detail has been overlooked.
Located just a block away from Ina Coolbrith Park at the top of Russian Hill, this private home is found on a quiet side street, within walking distance of shops and restaurants on Polk Street and nearby North Beach.
