One of our favorite designers in San Francisco, Matthew Turner of MacCaul Turner Design, recently gave a televised tour on NBC of a gorgeous Pacific Heights townhome that took nine years to design and develop. Matthew was the interior designer on the project, with Fisher Weisman, and Louis H. Felthouse was the architect, with Josehart Construction Management in charge of construction.
It is only because this magnificent home on Pacific Avenue is currently for sale by Gregg Lynn of Sotheby’s International Realty for $12,900,000 that we are able to get this privileged tour inside. With new construction so rare in Pacific Heights, it will be a while before anything similar is available.
The Entrance Gallery has a walnut entablature, limestone/marble floors and elegant chandeliers. The owner liked the hand-forged iron door so much, “we decided to take that element and extend it elsewhere in the home,” says Matthew.
Servicing four levels, the Grand Stair Hall and generous Elevator landings feature sophisticated forged-iron grillwork and walnut handrails.
The Great Room is showcased by luxurious walnut-paneling on the north wall, soaring ceilings and oversized windows presenting outlooks to a Southern Garden and stunning City views. Hidden doors lead to a Powder Room with Waterworks fixtures or an elegant Wet Bar.
An oversized fireplace with vintage wood mantle and marble surround endow this room designed for grand-scale entertaining. Alternatively, concealed walnut pocket doors close to create a Private Retreat or Screening Room. A climate-controlled 800+ bottle Wine Room features a top-line dishwasher and refrigerator.
The Second Floor begins with a large Family Room with a fireplace and two view balconies. An adjacent Grand Kitchen designed with myriad top-line appliances and large center island of stunning Costa Esmerelda granite countertops opens to a Breakfast Area. Nearby, a large Butler’s Pantry features ample storage and laundry appliance.
The Dining Room features a balcony, coffered ceiling with silver-foil accent and locking Silver Closet.
The paneled Living Room enjoys Northern windows and beautiful neighborhood outlooks. An adjacent elegant Wet Bar, Powder Room and Study complement this Level. With its darkly paneled environment, and touches of light upholstery and color, the cozy library is designer Matthew’s favorite room in the house.
The Third Floor features a Master Suite with a balcony, oversized fireplace, dual Closets and a sumptuous Master Bath with Jerusalem limestone gold floors, soaking view tub, dual vanities, spa/steam Shower Room for two and Water Closet. This floor additionally features two Bedrooms with a shared Bath, two en-suite Bedrooms and a Laundry Room.
The stunning Roof Terrace Level has “everything you could possibly need for outdoor entertaining,” according to Matthew. It features 2,500 square feet of luxurious outdoor living: a full outdoor kitchen, a dining area, a lounging area, a 12-person stainless steel hot tub, and a room to keep you warm when the San Francisco fog rolls in.
Additionally, the Family/Guest Level features a three-bedroom, three-bathroom Apartment with Kitchen, Living and Dining Areas, as well as Garden and street access.
The home is made complete by a Crestron Home Automation System, enabling local or remote management of sophisticated lighting, security, acoustic, media and mechanical systems.
