Meticulous renovation and state-of-the-art finishes combine to create a sophisticated and modernized full floor condominium in an Edwardian era building, offering close to 1,700 square feet of bright, open-concept, and light-filled living spaces.  Built in 1911, and beautifully remodeled head-to-toe in 2014, this 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home includes soaring 9.5-foot ceilings, two fireplaces, wide-planked hardwood flooring, a stunning roof top deck, and is conveniently centrally located, providing a luxurious living experience in San Francisco’s classic Nob Hill district.

Enter the historic middle floor flat up a newly carpeted flight of stairs to arrive in an open concept living space, where dining, living and kitchen are all open to one another and benefit from south facing light streaming in through six nearly floor-to-ceiling double-paned Bay windows.  To the left of the landing is a spacious dining room featuring light chocolate wide planked hardwood flooring, and a modern light globe above and is adjacent to the living room to the right.

The living room is accented by a stunning wood-burning fireplace, gorgeously restored to preserve the historic nature of the residence, with Carrara marble hearth and wood mantel, and flanked by two built-in custom bookcases.  Modern window coverings here provide seamless adjustments on the amount of southern light streaming in through the Bay windows. 

A white and bright open Chef’s grade kitchen adjacent to the living room includes a gorgeous Calacatta Oro marble oversized breakfast bar which divides the kitchen from the living room and can easily accommodate four diners.  The kitchen features stainless-steel appliances, including Bosch dishwasher, oversized refrigerator with water dispenser and ice maker, and separate wine storage drawer, high-end Bertazzoni Italia gas range with hood above, and Whitehaus farmhouse sink.  Brilliant custom-made cabinetry is accented with marble tile backsplash & under-cabinet LED lighting.  

Step down the hall, past a sweet Juliette balcony, deep hall closet and laundry room to find the first bedroom on the left with modern light fixture overhead, outfitted closet, and easy access to the guest bathroom directly across the hall.  A well-appointed guest bathroom includes a generous sized bathtub with rainwater shower overhead and is surrounded by modern stone tiling, and a European glass enclosure. 

At the north end of the residence find two additional good-sized bedroom retreats. The bedrooms in the rear each feature three angled double paned windows and are peaceful abodes.  The bedroom on the left is highlighted by a gorgeous gas fireplace with Carrara marble surround and wood mantel, a vintage open box beam ceiling, as well as a large walk-in closet.

The primary ensuite bedroom on the right includes three large windows adorned with plantation shutters, an ensuite bathroom with modern glass paneled sliding door, marble flooring with radiant heat, large custom walk-in shower with marble tiling surround, above-counter double faucet vessel sink, and expanded closet space offering two fully outfitted modern closets.

Head upstairs via an external, yet covered staircase to land on a large, entertaining roof top deck that is shared between the building’s three units.  The deck has been beautifully restored with redwood, and features sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge, downtown, and Twin Peaks. 

Head downstairs to the garage to find a large, deeded parking space (which may accommodate up to 2 small vehicles in tandem), as well as a generous deeded storage room.  1310 California is ideally located in quintessential Nob Hill, just steps from world-class dining, Trader Joe’s, Polk & Hyde Streets shopping/eateries/nightlife, historic Chinatown, Grace Cathedral, as well as strolling distance into downtown Union Square & the Financial District.

Exclusive and elegant, Nob Hill is home to some of the grandest mansions and most historic hotels one can find in San Francisco.  Nob Hill is part of an enclave made accesible in the 1870s by the addition of cable cars climbing up California Street through the heart of the neighborhood.  The area is considered the center of old San Francisco, where even today descendants of some of the original founding families of San Francisco keep continued memberships at renowned private clubs, including the infamous Bohemian Club.  All but destroyed in the fire of 1906, Nob Hill homes remain the most prestigious of San Francisco addresses.  Old money is on display here, making itself seen through the extravagantly adorned buildings that line every street.Huntington Park is certainly the heart of Nob Hill.  Home to the iconic 10-foot Fountain of Tortoises, families enjoy congregating on its shady expanses to take in a bit of respite following the hike up the hill. There is also a children's playground which is second to none.  The spiritual center of the community is found in the impressive stone architecture of Grace Cathedral. A Liberal bastion, the Cathedral administers an array of social justice programs, and brings inspiration through the many musical concerts it hosts throughout the year.  Also on the grounds is an outdoor meditation labyrinth.  Here visitors traverse the garden in silence as part of a meditative reflection on their own lives and the lives of others.  The neighborhood of Nob Hill remains a very walkable area despite its many steep avenues.  It remains an urban oasis for residents while never being too far from the action of downtown.  Perfectly situated it remains bounded by the excitement of Chinatown, the thrilling nightlife of Polk Street, and the upscale shopping of Union Square.  Nob Hill is a walking commute from downtown and the financial district.  And for those not interested in walking at the end of the day, MUNI provides monthly cable car passes. Now that's traveling in style!
