3D Virtual Tour


Property Description:

Recognized nationally by the AIA and building industry for its achievement in innovative and sustainable design and featured in the AIA tour, this urban residence is the creation of Zack de Vito Architecture: a masterpiece that synthesizes ecologically informed design and construction with a pure modern sensibility.

A framed vista to the bay bridge is captured at the inviting street level entry. Inside, a translucent acrylic stairway visually integrates all three floors of living space while panoramic city and bay views enhance every room. The main living level encompasses the top floor where open volumes emphasize the panorama of the city while creating multifunctional family-friendly living spaces. High ceilings and a full length glass wall allows the exterior view to fully integrate with the interior. Sliding wall panels provide for flexible use of the space creating a private workspace or guest room as needed. The second level features a generous master suite also retaining the same panoramic views of the city. The ground floor accommodates a spacious family/media room that connects to a large level garden along with two additional bedrooms.

 Using a consistent palette of materials and detailing, the home is an impressive achievement of contemporary craft. Visible structural steel and fine wood cabinetry are used throughout, graphically defining or dividing spaces. Materials, details and connections are visible expressions of the design as exemplified in the intricate staircase where water jet-cut steel stringers support translucent acrylic treads and risers. Innovative design and an extraordinary attention to detail creates a remarkable achievement.

Glen Park

Tucked away from much of the city's hustle and bustle by sprawling Glen Canyon Park, the Glen Park neighborhood has the feel of a small, inclusive village. Conveniently served by a BART station and easy freeway access, residents can find themselves downtown or headed to the South Bay in no time. Just south of Noe Valley, Glen Park offers much of the same small-town feeling at more affordable prices. The area is quite popular with families who want to enjoy city living in a more peaceful corner of San Francisco. Known as "the Village," the neighborhood's commercial strip is centered at the intersection of Diamond and Chenery streets near the Glen Park BART station. Here you'll find charming mom-and-pop shops, a number of trendy restaurants and old-fashioned cafes and more! Glen Park offers a variety of housing types, from single-family homes to multi-unit buildings.

A wide variety of architectural types can be found here as well. "Lovely Laidley" Street offers a mini-tour of the neighborhood's architectural spectrum. Many homes in the neighborhood also boast incredible views.

The neighborhood is ideal for those who find enjoying the outdoors an absolute must. Glen Canyon Park occupies nearly 70 acres and offers miles of hiking trails. Walter Haas Park sits atop the hill and could definitely compete for the title of best bay views from a swing set.
