740 Bay Street, San Francisco, California 94109$4,700,000
Dynamic and striking urban oasis on the iconic San Francisco waterfront. This five bedroom, four and one half bathroom single-family home was renovated with sleek designer finishes, clean lines, and innovative architecture in 2014 to create a seamless indoor/outdoor experience and showcase stunning Bay and Alcatraz views from multiple levels. A charming, period-centric façade conceals a contemporary masterpiece within, with high ceilings and great light throughout.
An elevator brings you directly to the third level of the home from the garage or main entrance, allowing for a reverse floorplan with a main level consisting of an open living room, dining room, and kitchen all facing glass floor-to-ceiling doors that slide open to a large terrace and picturesque views of the water, Angel Island and Alcatraz.
The living room boasts a gas fireplace, and the modern kitchen is equipped with quartz countertops, a mosaic tile backsplash, a central island, wood veneer flat-paneled custom cabinetry, and deluxe stainless appliances including a gas cooktop, dishwasher, and a double oven. There is hardwood flooring throughout and the kitchen opens to a formal dining area. Around the corner is a cleverly concealed chic powder room for guests and at the back of this level is an additional office or sitting room with skylights overhead.
Up a flight of stairs, a retractable skylight opens to reveal an incredible roofdeck with sweeping Bay and Alcatraz views as well as outlooks from the west to the Golden Gate all the way across Russian Hill to Coit Tower, downtown, and the lights of the Bay Bridge. The deck is outfitted with glass railings, built-in bench, grill, and gas firepit, making it an ideal entertaining space.
On the second level is an exquisite primary suite, an office or nursery, a second bedroom, and bathroom. The primary bedroom includes a large sitting area with a corner gas fireplace and three walls of windows facing north to the Bay. There is a walk-in closet attached with handsome built-ins, and the gorgeous primary bathroom features a walk-in glass shower with textured porcelain tile, a standalone soaking tub, and a floating quartz-topped double vanity. The second bedroom has a unique curved wall and both this bedroom and the nursery on this level share an attractive hallway bathroom, with quartz-topped vanity and walk-in glass shower with patterned tile surround and pebbled tile floor.
The lower level houses two additional bedrooms, one with sliding glass doors out to an enclosed patio and an ensuite bathroom with glass shower, and the other bedroom with a curved wall and double closet. A lovely hallway bathroom with shower over tub serves both the fourth bedroom and family room, and adjacent to the bathroom is a stacked washer/dryer and linen closet. A spacious family room has a media room area and a sophisticated wet bar with tile backsplash, rich custom cabinetry, a wine refrigerator, and a stainless sink, as well as a seating area with sliding glass doors to the garden.
The expansive backyard presents a paved area for entertaining and dining, with a BBQ, heat lamps and fire pit, as well as a turfed lawn for recreation surrounded by pretty landscaping.
There is a two-car side-by-side garage with interior access, and this wonderful home is located just steps to shops and dining in North Beach, Ghirardelli Square, and Russian Hill, close to the waterfront at Aquatic Park, and just one block from the new Russian Hill Francisco Park!
