Perched on the edge of Sutro Forest this home features sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean from the Farallon Islands to Point Reyes to the Bay. The light-filled city retreat has three bedrooms, plus a family room/guestroom, and four bathrooms.
This Mid-century remodel added over 500 SF of livable space within the existing envelope of the house. The new entrance was created on the street to create more curb appeal and livable space.
The entry foyer is highlighted by a set of customs barn doors. The wide plank white oak floor draws your eye though the Family Room towards the ocean.
At the heart of the floor plan is a new stair clad with white oak and washed with daylight from a large translucent window that replaced the original front door.
The new Master Bedroom is arranged to connect with the view over Golden Gate Park and the Marin Headlands.
The Master Bathroom is ensuite with a custom wall-hung vanity.
Glass rails, custom white oak trim and bookcase round out the stair ensemble that maximizes daylight and visual connections between the upper and lower level.
A new ridge beam and shear walls were added, to create an open floor plan and cathedral ceiling, enveloping a cohesive living, dining and kitchen composition.
The heart of the living space is a hand crafted Heath tile and solid oak mantle encompassing the wood burning fireplace flanked by hand-made benches.
The kitchen is delineated with high-end all white Kitchen Aid appliances, a solid molded Krion sink and seamless countertop by Porcelanosa, and a custom, movable nine-foot chef’s prep island.
At the rear of the house, both the upper and lower levels are extended with full width decks. Ipe posts and rails are laced with stainless steel cable to maximize the view. Grey Trex deck boards complete the low maintenance composition.
