Russian Hill home with bird's-eye views of the city asks $5.8 million


People who live in glass houses...get the best views. And nowhere could this be truer than from inside the well-windowed rooms of this Russian Hill home.

All modern-minimalist with clean lines and a neutral palette, this house was designed to showcase what lies beyond its walls through endless windows, skylights, and multiple decks that will make you feel like a bird looking out from your nest.

On quiet Glover Street, a stainless steel door with a baked-enamel metallic finish and black-flamed granite steps announce the entrance to the fully renovated three-level house, where the original crown molding provides a soft contrast to modern European white oak hardwood floors throughout.

In the dining room hangs a modern, sculptural chandelier, while the open kitchen has top-drawer appliances from Sub-Zero and Miele, including a 59-bottle wine fridge.

Upstairs on the second level are three bedrooms including the master suite with its large walk-in closet and organization-happy built-ins. In the master bath, your booty will be tickled by a Toto self-closing and cleaning toilet.

Take the last flight up to the jewel of the home—the family room with dual terraces and windows all around. Like a greenhouse, the space is nearly all glass and flush with natural light—and thanks to an architectural rain screen decking system and half-inch tempered glass railing with wind protection, the space is a stunning escape no matter the weather. But if you do get a chill, simply crank up the concrete fire pit with piped natural gas.

A fourth, bottom level has yet another bedroom opening onto a side garden, and a tandem two-car garage.

And what's a house in San Francisco without a bit of tech? Redesigned as a smart home, the property has all the fun gadgets you want including a Sonos sound system; Nest thermostat, cameras, and smoke sensors; Lutron smart home system; a MyQ WiFi-enabled garage door; an Aiphone system with outdoor camera and intercom; Somfy remote-controlled blinds on the roof deck; and three new 4K TVs.
