You must see this traditional 1907 Edwardian flat skillfully modified for the 21st century to appreciate the attention to detail and functionality of its contemporary design.
Originally constructed after the earthquake of 1906, this building has been meticulously upgraded from top to bottom. Recent infrastructure includes steel and concrete structural upgrades that create ground floor parking for two cars, electronic systems to accommodate the demands of a contemporary home office and newer mechanical and electrical systems designed for aesthetic appeal, comfort and function.
Once inside, the quality of the craftsmanship of this home is obviously apparent. Retaining old world charm, the refinished softwood floors and decorative balustrade, the style of the open space is obviously contemporary. Walls have been opened up to best take advantage of the breathtaking panoramic views of Downtown and the Bay. An expansive, flexible entertainment space with stylish kitchen opens to a living and dining area that captures dramatic views to the East and North. The kitchen is stunning with Brazilian Slate countertops, custom cabinetry, a six-burner Thermador range and an expansive workspace with handmade porcelain farm sink. The adjoining living space incorporates a gas fireplace, built-in cabinetry and bookshelves. Direct access to a large deck provides more space for enjoyment and entertainment. Enjoy the warm weather of Potrero Hill on a fogless evening.
While this home offers obvious comforts to any casual visitor, some of it’s most remarkable features are only discovered after a thorough investigation: a vaulted ceiling in the master bath floats two inches from the wall to accommodate an ingeniously quiet ventilation system: a retractable mirror over the master vanity preserves the astonishing north view to downtown; and a precisely counter-balanced, hinged bookcase pivots out of the corner of a room with the encouragement of one finger to reveal a fully equipped laundry closet. Last, but not least, a stairway connects to a private top floor retreat featuring cherry flooring, custom steel finished ridge lighting and panoramic view skylights. This space is great for a guest suite, a home office or fun family entertainment.
The Potrero Hill neighborhood has perhaps the best weather in the City, and now offers among the best services. World-class restaurants and bars are tucked into corners along steep streets, where residents and visitors alike still enjoy ample street parking. Easy Caltrain and freeway access have made the area a popular home base for those who commute to the Pennisula or East Bay, while downtown is just a hop, skip and jump away.

One of the best kept secrets for many years, Potrero Hill was once the blue collar home of shipping docks, storehouses, and the simple shops and bakeries frequented by the families who called it home. The big turnaround came on the heels of the dot-com revolution when many of the warehouses and factories in the area were transitioned into the live-work lofts and offices we know today. Development along Third Street has solidified this area's reputation as an exciting destination, with an unparalleled ease of commute to downtown SF. Among Potrero Hill's many assets, its sunny weather, fantastic views, and ready access to all highways rank high on the list. A hardy neighborhood, there are a great many early Victorians along its charming streets which remarkably withstood the earthquake of 1906. Eateries, bars and shops along 18th street are plentiful in options. The classic watering hole Blooms, named for the heroine of Ulysses, offers pool tables, awe-inspiring views, and fantastic people watching. Chez Papa offers the best French Provencal bistro cuisine this side of the Sierra Nevada. And please don't miss Farley's, where an easy-going coffee drinking crowd enjoy daily brews strong enough to cut through any misty morning. Students and young folks help liven things up just enough thanks to the nearby California College of Art campus, the California Culinary Academy, and local bar The Bottom of the Hill, which hosts an amazing array of music acts not to be missed. You'll find plenty of shopping and grocery options close to 16th and Potrero. If you've never visited Potrero Hill, get ready to be romanced by this charming hillside respite.
