Your Castle in the Sky ~

Beauty is so much more than skin deep at this magical view penthouse shining atop San Francisco’s beloved Alpine Terrace. Curated with an otherworldly eye for fine art and design, the treasures found in this mid-century masterpiece begin with heart-stopping unobstructed views – stretching from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Downtown Skyline and around San Francisco Bay. This rare offering features an exquisitely renovated 2-bedroom, 2.5-bath split-level penthouse, an adjoining private roof deck with sitting, dining and lounge areas, and private 1-car parking. All of this combined with an A+ location in the heart of San Francisco make this a dream come true and the ideal space to shelter in place because you’ll never want to leave!

Where mid-century Hollywood Regency meets turnkey 21st century top-shelf amenities ~  

Reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour, the penthouse has been exquisitely reimagined and remodeled over the last 25 years by its owners. Connecting the open plan drawing room views with imported 18th century oak parquet Versailles and French limestone/cabochon kitchen floors, you’ll find sparkling amenities like an all-Viking kitchen with a wine fridge. But step around the corner and discover a cave de vin grotto in the sky with a walk-out view deck -- or melt into another time and place in your sumptuous Italian master bath under glass roof, complete with walls of imported Moroccan tile and Carrera marble, separate soaking tub, shower and massive Venetian mirror. Every room provides a storybook backdrop for the memories you’ll make in this residence.

With mesmerizing views that reflect the beauty within, this dream home offers a sanctuary for sheltering in place and, when all of this is over, a retreat to welcome friends you’ve dearly missed. And as the owners so simply put it, “No matter the time of day - or come what may - it’s the view that makes things better.”
