This hip three-story pad eschews its early twentieth century past for an open and bright interior, and a remarkable profusion of fine custom wood details interspersed throughout. Situated on a sunny and quiet street on the Southwest slope of trendy Potrero Hill, this newly remodeled home reflects a sophisticated, yet warm rustic sense of refinement.
The flowing living, dining and kitchen space is bright and inviting, offering an ultimate place to unwind and entertain. The state-of-the-art kitchen is well appointed with today's luxurious amenities including fine Carrera Marble counters, professional stainless steal appliances (Frigidaire & Miele), a skylight, and custom walnut shelving and cabinets with soft close hinges. The kitchen features a beautiful handcrafted solid ash wood lounge/bar counter, a perfect spot for your morning brew and favorite paper.
Included on the main level are two bedrooms - flanked by a stylish full-bath with mod fixtures, a vanity and cabinet constructed of cedar and vertical-grain fir, and Italian tile. The front bedroom offers French doors opening out to a deck made of redwood with steel railings and meshing - allowing for lots of brilliant natural light. Both bedrooms have attractive custom wood closet built-ins. The third, and largest bedroom is at the penthouse level - and offers warmth, privacy, views of Twin Peaks, and added hidden storage.
The kitchen opens to a newly built deck (made from cumaru - brazilian teak), again with modern steel railing and meshing, and stairs leading down to a hot tub and a tastefully fenced garden. The garden is landscaped with smart, no-water plants, and features decomposed granite patio-landings fashioned with oil soaked railroad ties.
Leading down to the lower level is a sleek, modern interior spiral staircase, comprised of sturdy iron, glass barriers, and oak treads. Upon entering this level, you will find a spacious media room featuring a swank custom-built Ash wet-bar; an office/studio space; a second full bath; a laundry room with granite counter and custom Ash wood storage cabinets; and a full single-car garage (also with built in storage). Of note - the flooring is broken-edge travertine stone tile, offering a classy modern look to this level. Additionally, the office/studio space features a stamped tin ceiling with recessed halogen lighting. Also worth mentioning - the interior doors at this level have been handcrafted from solid blued jeffrey's pine - take a look when you are here.
Some additional details: The main level features white oak hardwood flooring with a walnut inlay around the edges. Interior doors are 4-panel solid hemlock. The home has updated plumbing, wiring, and led lighting. The windows are double paned - Pella and Anderson, and the hardware used throughout is Baldwin.
This home is an expression of fine craftsmanship, and invites you to stay awhile and bask in its warm modern glow. It is located in Potrero Hill - known for sunny and warm weather, hilly neighborhood streets with incredible SF Bay and city views, relaxed hip vibe, and a community of shops, restaurants, coffee spots, gourmet markets including Whole Foods, open space, and community gardens. This location offers quick access to freeways (101, 280, I-80), public transportation (Cal train/Muni), tech shuttles to the Valley, and SFO airport. It's a short bike ride to UCSF/Mission Bay, The Design Center, Zynga, Airbnb, and Twitter.

For decades, Potrero Hill remained one of the best-kept secrets in San Francisco. Shipyards and working docks on one side of the hill, bakeries, breweries, and warehouses on the other gave a decidedly blue collar cast to this quiet neighborhood. As South of Market was colonized by the dot com explosion, the former warehouses and factories were converted to office space and live/work lofts. San Francisco high rises sprang up along the 3rd street corridor, and suddenly Potrero Hill wa-if not in the center of things-a short commute to the action.
Today, Potrero Hill has lots going for it besides its location, sunny weather, killer views, and easy commutes to downtown or Silicon Valley. The neighborhood is comprised mainly of single-family Victorian homes that withstood the 1906 earthquake. Shops along 18th street include Chez Papa, which offers some of the best French Provencal bistro cuisine on this side of the Atlantic. Blooms, named after the heroine of Ulysses, is a classic bar, offering pool tables, and jaw dropping views of the city at night. Long-time come-as-you-are favorite community coffee shop, Farley's, makes coffee strong enough to cut through any fog.
At the foot of Potrero, the scene is a lively mix of students at the California College of Art campus, and the California Culinary Academy, with local bar The Bottom of the Hill hosting up and coming new music acts. Locals get their groceries at the nearby shopping center at 16th and Potrero.
