Home video tour: Contemporary Buena Vista Park home with killer views asks for $3.6 million
Location is everything at this contemporary Buena Vista Avenue home where tall windows and sliding glass doors bring park and San Francisco views right into the living areas.
Across from Buena Vista Park and two blocks from Corona Heights Park, the three-bedroom Upper Haight Residence is within walking distance of a myriad of restaurants and shops.
Custom built in 2000 by SF Mark English architectsthe three-story home takes advantage of its height and perch with several large decks for viewing the sights, including the Sutro Tower, but with plenty of luxurious amenities — think radiant heated floors and a built-in sound system — there’s also has much to enjoy inside the modern sanctuary.
An exposed steel I-beam structural frame allows for minimal interior walls and a flowing floor plan. Down a flight of stairs from the main entrance, the large living and dining area has concrete floors, a gas fireplace and a three-story wall of glass that opens onto a patio and garden in ipe wood.
In the kitchen, chefs will appreciate Gaggenau appliances, a stainless steel bar and island, and built-in storage. Hope you like blue! A bathroom and a laundry room complete this first level.
Upstairs, a walkway overlooks the great room. Here, two bedrooms each have built-in storage and share a blue-tiled bathroom with a stand-alone tub and large shower.
The family or media room is on the third floor with Twin Peaks as a backdrop. The crown jewel here is the master suite with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking live oaks, SF Bay, Mount Diablo, and downtown. It is a carefully designed space, with more integrated elements; custom headboard and bed frame; and a dressing room. There’s more blue in the en-suite bathroom which has a jacuzzi and a walk-in shower.
Additional amenities include a side-by-side two-car garage with workbench; Nest thermostats; automatic blinds; and a roof terrace with panoramic views.
Area: 2,640 square feet
Asking price: $3,595,000
