For a true feel of San Francisco history, it doesn't get anymore authentic and elegant than 42 Hotaling Place, considering the building literally being designated as the city's 11th landmark. The naming of Hotaling Place even preceeds both the naming of San Francisco and California receiving statehood, making it a property richly adorned with vibrant history that continues to radiate sophistication through today.
As a trailblazer in the San Francisco interior design movement, Hotaling Place once grandly hosted not only the atelier Kneedler Fauchere, but also McGuire Furniture and myriad galleries.
Today the $7.9M penthouse is listed by Gregg Lynn of Sotheby’s International Realty, with the charitable sellers being Angela and Alan Braverman.
Entering the penthouse, you will immediately notice the modern restoration carefully detailed by Rossington Architecture & Van Acker Construction. Their multi-year modern European revitalization truly shines throughout all of the 7,000 square footage of its two levels.
This sleek and elevated modernization still beautifully retains the classic filigree and old-world essences of the building's storied past, such as the skylights and casement windows, ingeniously integrated among the contemporary features of custom millwork concealed storage and the kitchen's Neolith Calacatta-slab.
Looking into the lavish primary wing instantly transports you to an absolutely opulent palatial space, replete with an impressive fireplace, lounge, and a spa-inspired bath. You also cannot miss the glass-adorned stairway, with beautifully welcomes a lush sky garden brimming with healthy plants and a pond.
A premier outdoor kitchen, comfy dining and living areas, outdoor theatre, serene hot tub, fun bocce lawn and more also all fill this luxurious retreat. The upper level is truly the perfect bucolic escape, especially with its panoramic skyline views.
While the building is historic, the infrastructure is at the utmost innovation of technology, securing peace of mind with the HEPA filtration & air-conditioning, and the effortlessly customizable lighting, window shades, climate control, audio levels, and security features all from the push of a button.
It truly does not get anymore classic, comfortable, and contemporary than the Hotaling building's #42 Penthouse.
Living here will fill you with amazement not only with our city's persevering history, but also with our devoted commitment to being at the forefront of modern home designs and functionality.
