Video House Tour: Tiny-yet-mighty Ken Fulk-designed high-rise home asks for $1.7 million
Located on Harrison Street, just off the Embarcadero, The Harrison’s luxurious glass-fronted condos offer all the San Francisco Bay and cityscape views one would expect from a South Beach high-rise residence.
But with interior design by SF famed Ken Fulk, aesthetes may be more interested in looking inside.
Currently on the market, this 12th-floor corner home is tiny — with just two bedrooms and two bathrooms in less than 1,300 square feet — but it’s finished with sleek design cues, including Siberian oak floors at wide planks, Studio Becker Ash Molina cabinets, and custom vanities with Carrara marble countertops.
Judicious use of color sets the spaces apart in the open floor plan. In the dining room and living room, shades of blue and green – of neighboring glass skyscrapers, the bay and the sky – are brought to life through two walls of windows in an otherwise white room, which has access to a private balcony.
Deep charcoal gray walls, painted with a mural of the Bay Bridge and the city skyline at night, announce the transition to the kitchen which is only separated from the living room by an open counter with seating. In the kitchen, find Bertazzoni and Bosch appliances as well as a built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator.
The powder room (which is actually a full bathroom) is a special highlight, as befits the dandy designer’s reputation for style: here, black-and-white Grecian-style patterned wallpaper is a canvas. of whimsical background for the pop of antique golden hardware.
The master suite has a large walk-in closet and a spacious bathroom with a double sink marble vanity, soaking tub and large shower. There is built-in storage by California Closets throughout the home.
As always, membership in an exclusive community comes with privileges: Perks at The Harrison include an outdoor pool, spa and gym, sky lounge speakeasy, valet parking, concierge services and a 24/7 doorman.
