Comfort, convenience and custom features take center stage in this completely remodeled home in San Francisco’s popular Cole Valley. A product of impeccable attention to detail combined with superior materials and craftsmanship, the four-level contemporary abode features 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, approximately 4,800 square feet, and parking for 4 cars, including one space with an electric charging station. Located on an oversized lot this stunning residence has a large rear garden custom designed with a vegetable garden. The rooftop deck and several rooms provide panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge Sutro Tower, and beyond, while a second deck overlooks the landscaped rear yard that hosts the lawn and mature trees.
The overall ambiance is of spaciousness and light, thanks to oversized windows, glass doors, open staircases, European white oak floors, and recessed lighting. As you enter the home a floor-to-ceiling glass pivot door welcomes you into the home. Feeling expansive and open, the home’s main level features a dramatic gas fireplace serving both living room and dining room, which flows seamlessly into the designer kitchen and on to the comfortable family room with its welcoming covered deck (including BBQ service). This level includes a powder room and additional closet space. Indeed, the entire home invites intimacy and conviviality while also providing privacy and serenity.
The exquisitely designed kitchen is outfitted with a large island with custom Italian marble counters featuring a waterfall stone finish on both ends, custom walnut cabinetry, and top of the line Miele appliances including two ovens, a refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, and two sinks. Attached to the kitchen is the family room and view deck.
Above the main level, the penthouse level hosts four bedrooms and three baths, including the master suite. The master suite includes a luxurious bath, spacious walk-in closet and stunning views. Two of the other bedrooms include access to an en-suite bath. This fourth level also provides access to the rooftop deck, offering panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge and beyond as well as a six-foot linear fireplace. At street level, the expansive garage, storage and versatile media room are practical amenities, while the basement guest suite is a tranquil getaway for guests or family. The media room is outfitted with 6.1 surround sound and a built-in bar area for entertaining guests.
Whether for practical purposes or pure luxury, amenities abound here. There is a walk-in wine room, two laundry rooms, electronic blinds with remote control operation, surround sound, and timers for all irrigation throughout the garden. The list of custom accouterments is seemingly endless and includes all cabinetry, high end Italian light and plumbing fixtures; top-of-the-line gourmet appliances, including Miele in the kitchen and dual Electrolux washers and dryers; freestanding Aquastone tub in the master bath; radiant in-floor heating throughout the home and controlled by Nest thermostats; electrically-controlled skylights; and Solarban UV protection glass in all windows and doors.
Energy efficiency and “green” building practices were at the forefront of this outstanding home’s reconstruction. There are conduit runs for future solar power, and environmentally friendly low voltage lighting cans throughout. Myriad additional environment-sensitive building materials were used as well.
Resting on a flat block at the top of Cole Valley, 150 Carmel St is conveniently located near the shops and restaurants along Cole Street while still feeling private. This beautiful home is perfect for family, and entertaining even the most discriminating guests.
