734 Bay Street, San Francisco, CA 94109


This won't be the usual real estate marketing text, so please bear with me. This area of San Francisco is where my husband and I first landed in the early 1990s, after growing up in the East Bay. It's where I first fled the suburbs, when I got my driver's license at 16 years old. It's where I promised myself I would set down roots, and it's definitely where I left my heart.

So, to introduce 734 Bay Street to the world means a lot to me. It's rare that a piece of history like this - a unique compound in a magical setting - comes on the market.

Tucked beyond an unassuming private entrance, your eyes will widen as you start to take in this hidden treasure. Be welcomed into this sanctuary by a sun-soaked front garden, and head into the first residence of the two-unit building. The lower home includes two levels of luxurious living, with a reverse floor plan designed to capture the Bay views from the main living area. The upper level of this unit features a wonderful open floor plan, with a stunning kitchen situated at its heart. This level includes an open living and dining area, full bath, a walk-out balcony overlooking the Bay, and a front deck awash in south-facing sunshine. Retreat down the steps to the lower level, which includes two spacious bedrooms, two walk-in closets, and a spa-like full bath. There is direct access from this level to the front and rear garden. 

The top floor residence is a one-bedroom, one-bath full-floor flat that includes stunning views, a spacious living room, an intimate dining room overlooking the Bay, and a beautifully-updated kitchen. Another spacious and sunny deck is just off this level.
