2666 Broadway Street

Sale Price: $8,650,000

Situated on one of San Francisco’s premiere Pacific Heights’ streets, this stunning 1938 residence offers distinction, luxury and elegant simplicity. The finest artisan finishes throughout are beautifully integrated with the clean architectural lines of William Wurster’s modern design. Unique materials create a stylish interior without detracting from its modern style. Remarkable views of the Bay, Marin and glimpses of the Golden Gate Bridge add further to this home’s dramatic appeal. Enter through a south-facing Thomas Church courtyard garden which imbues the main living areas with natural light and the loveliness of verdant vines and plantings. A welcoming open floor plan features the living room, dining room and a gourmet kitchen and is complimented by the extraordinary European Oak flooring, hand-selected and imported from Germany. The natural wood grain creates an organic texture that contributes to the warmth and calm of this impressive main level. No detail has been overlooked, from the seamlessly integrated powder room and closet, made of American Oak planks, to the built-in cabinetry to the kitchens’ black honed granite island and glass enclosed pantry with its own delicatessen refrigerator. A plaster finished staircase leads to the second floor with three bedrooms: two south-facing guest bedrooms looking onto the garden, and the stunning en suite master bedroom which faces north with a panoramic view of the Bay. Ascend to the top level and experience a large second living room with a “deconstructed” custom fireplace and a wall of windows that showcase amazing views. The upper level solarium has honed granite slab flooring supported by steel beams with a ceiling of skylights and an adjacent Redwood-paneled office, complete with a restored wet-bar and refrigerator. The lower level features a media room with a wall of built-in cabinetry of the finest American Oak. The fantastic bright colored kitchenette, off the downstairs media room, conceals the laundry room and is fitted with a refrigerator and dishwasher, creating an ideal space for entertaining and relaxing. A separate guest cottage has a loft sleeping area, a full bathroom and a refrigerator and microwave. 2666 Broadway is an homage to the connoisseurship of fine architecture and remarkable finishes which are the defining qualities of this mid-century masterpiece.
