San Francisco is known for having both the most spectacular views along with the most ornate architecture. This stunning penthouse listing on 1960 Broadway allows you to fully appreciate both with its spacious 4,360 square foot interior and panoramic windows.
Listed at $15 million by Deborah Svoboda of Sotheby's International Realty, this grand marvel of a high rise was first designed and constructed in 1925 by luminary city architect Frederick Quandt and engineer George Bos.
The complex then received a complete revamp and contemporary remodeling in 2011 by a strong partnership between iconic architect Lewis Butler and international interior designer Holly Hunt.
Today the residence remains as one of the largest co-op apartments in the city, with its penthouse as its literal crown jewel.
This lavishly stylish building is of the highest quality both inside and out, all the way into its foundation. With premium construction utilizing elegant silken stone slabs, ultra-clear, non-reflective Starphire glass windows, and incorporating 10+ foot tall ceilings, this home is able to delicately balance both vintage opulence with modern sleekness.
The entire penthouse is spacious and airy, with sophistication beginning right from when you walk in. Its 800-lb. metal door itself is custom made by Blank & Cables, which leads you from the private elevator into the magnificent open foyer.
The foyer then effortlessly flows to the living, dining, and entertaining spaces, all tied together with the immensely panoramic windows wrapping around the complex. Such fine windows allow you to clearly soak in the incredibly breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands on one end, and Alcatraz to Telegraph Hill on the other.
There is also a long eastern balcony that extends to the entire length of the dining area.
A gas fireplace adorns the living area with its sculptural uniquess, adding both a cutting-edge and warm ambience. Into the custom eat-in kitchen you will immediately appreciate its Corian walls and countertops, walnut cabinetry, wet bar, and bluestone center island. It is also furnished gloriously with top-of-the-line Miele appliances such as a six-burner gas cooktop and four highly efficient wall ovens.
Tucked away discreetly off of the kitchen are the powder room and office, leading to the gallery hall which hosts two bedroom suites each in their own wings. Both bedrooms also offer sweeping bay windows with desirable views of the Financial District.
By gracing up either the stunning floating stairway or the interior elevator, you will encounter the air-conditioned top level. Up here there is a roomy family gathering center, a library, and naturally, another glorious view of the city.
There is also a tranquil main bedroom suite with a room-sized walk-in closet, a decadent marbled bath, and a private south-facing rooftop terrace with French doors that gifts you with a downtown overlook onto the gorgeously stunning Salesforce Tower.
This penthouse is the epitome of posh privacy and timeless luxury, as you will also receive a spacious storage room, a two-car garage complete with an EV charger, and a serene garden-level room. All the furnishings carefully chosen and designed by Hunt are also available for purchase.
You will truly never get tired of the 360-degree views here, both outdoors and simply inside your resplendent new home.
