Long one of San Francisco’s most coveted neighborhoods, prestigious Pacific Heights is celebrated for its verdant parks, the famed Lyon Street Stairs, and popular boutiques and cafés—but it is perhaps most widely admired for its historic, architecturally significant estates with manicured lawns and sweeping picturesque vistas of the bay.
A modern standout in this storied location, the nine-story gem known as The Pacific was meticulously designed to bring a new caliber of elegance to its setting. The result of three years of painstaking design and construction, this penthouse at its zenith rivals its neighboring Gold Coast manors in refinement and views—here appreciated through the building’s distinctive 10 trapezoidal windows.
Soaring ceilings create a sense of airiness throughout the light-filled 5,310-square-foot residence—one of the largest condominiums in the city. An intriguing variety of materials, hues, and textures—including dolomite, travertine, walnut, and glass—creates visual appeal and an ambience of sleek, streamlined sophistication.
The centerpiece is a soigné great room that encompasses a dining area, living and lounging spaces, and a kitchen with a lengthy island, generous counter and cabinet space, floating shelves, and superior-caliber appliances. Diversion continues nearby, in a media and game room with a wet bar and its own dazzling outlook over the city.
Beyond two serene guest bedrooms and baths is the primary suite, a stylish oasis featuring an iconic view of the Golden Gate, a striking walk-in closet, and a lavish bath with a Sophstone soaking tub and spacious shower. Two secluded guest suites on the penthouse’s southern side are accompanied by an enviable sauna promising at-home relaxation and restoration.
The home’s de rigueur technological amenities include climate, lighting, security, and audiovisual systems that can be controlled via smartphone, tablet, or a series of wall-mounted panels. The penthouse is also committed to energy-efficiency, conservation, and creating a healthy living environment: materials used in the home’s construction have been certified organic and are free of toxins.
The Pacific is the neighborhood’s singular full-service building. It offers an array of amenities and services, including a rooftop lounge; gardens landscaped with drought-resistant native plantings; parking for four cars with direct elevator access; a state-of-the-art fitness studio; and, naturally, door attendants, concierges, porters, and custodians—all continuing the dedication to luxurious living for which Pacific Heights is known.
