Discrete, private luxury tucked into the heart of the San Francisco’s tech sector, the Grand City Compound is a unique urban retreat with a distinctive ownership pedigree. This inspiring space centers around a soaring three-level atrium, where light pours in through the 17-foot living room windows and oversized skylight. A thoughtful layout by Benjamin-Sternberg Architects creates an ideal living space in this 2,400 square foot modern penthouse.
You enter into a welcoming foyer, with a powder room and an extra-large master suite situated on the same floor. The bright, spacious bedroom features an en-suite bathroom, walk-in closet and private patio, and is an ideal guest bedroom.
The sleek kitchen is a chef’s dream, with Viking gas range, Gaggenau ventilation hood, sub-zero refrigerator, and custom Scavolini cabinetry. There is bar seating at the kitchen island, and plenty of additional room for a breakfast table or enjoying a cup of coffee on the terrace — just one of the 4 outdoor spaces in this extraordinary residence.
The show-stopping living room is flooded with natural light thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows. Clever automatic window vents at the top floor provide eco-friendly temperature control on warm days, and a feature gas fireplace provides warmth against the SF chill.
A modern steel and glass staircase with catwalk takes you to the second master suite, located two levels up from the ground floor — perfectly situated to provide a bit of extra privacy. Custom closets ensure ample storage space, while the elegantly appointed master bath and double shower heads bring a spa experience to your everyday routine. Both bedrooms are outfitted with automatic double window shades, so you can select sheer or blackout opacity. In addition, both bedrooms and the living room feature individually controlled radiant heat.
The top level has a small wet bar leading out to a rooftop deck, perfect for barbecuing or enjoying drinks while overlooking the cityscape.
The residence includes deeded parking, though a Walk Score of 98 may have you leaving your car at home most of the time! A short walk from neighborhood hot-spots, BART, FiDi and SOMA.
