Sale Price: $2,500,000

825 Duncan Street is a truly meticulous mid-century modern Noe Valley residence which has been renovated in exquisite style and to exacting standards. From the custom stainless threshold at the tasteful entry, to the hand cut stone in the impressive back yard, every feature in this home has been thoughtfully considered with no small detail overlooked. A welcoming foyer announces the pure modern lines that await and introduces the upper main level. Ascend the stairwell, bathed in natural light from the skylight above, and be welcomed by the perfectly framed atrium that presents appealing greenery, illumination and a custom feature wall. The open living and dining room have a wall of north-facing windows that frame the stunning Downtown and East Bay views. Custom built-in cabinetry, crafted from Anigre tropical hardwood with book-matched grain, are showcased throughout the main rooms and kitchen including a beautiful accent wall with a stainless surround gas fireplace. The gourmet kitchen serves up sought after culinary features including abundant custom built-in cabinetry distinctively complemented by honed Absolute black granite counters, featuring both a farmhouse and prep sink, a Subzero refrigerator, a 6-burner Thermador range, Bosch convection oven, Miele dishwasher and two microwaves. Two bedrooms, including the master en suite with sliding doors that lead to the outdoor Ipe deck, and an office or optional fourth bedroom are all on the main level. An additional guest bedroom also opens out to the back yard. In addition to the master bath accented with tumbled marble and smartly placed storage, another full bathroom is also on this floor and is finished in white quartz slate. A Bosch steam washer and dryer are conveniently centrally located on this level. The lower level has a generous second master en suite with full bath that opens out to the remarkable backyard and boasts a sizable walk-in closet with Elfa components. The first level foyer provides a direct connection to the 3-car garage that flaunts a porcelain tile floor, wine closet, wall of cabinet drawers, utility sink and tradesmen access to the back yard. A luscious level lawn, extensive hardscape of stacked stone seat walls, hand-cleaved Arizona Stone patios and walk ways with rare specimen plantings, stainless path lighting and up lights are among the accentuating details of this substantial yard. The exterior brick veneer, selected for its minimal upkeep and enduring style, was color matched to the aluminum clad windows and stucco, resulting in maximum efficiency. This contemporary residence seamlessly incorporates modern design, natural light, distinctive finishes, stunning views and a sylvan outdoor space, all perfectly combined to offer comfort, tranquility, quality and sophistication.
