Sure, the monthly HOA dues are more than the rent on your one-bedroom apartment and you still have to pay for parking, but if you've got $10 mil to drop, you can live in the lap of absolute, Jay Jeffers–designed luxury.
A rare market offering indeed, this two-bedroom condo at the St. Regis Residences—which has been specially configured from two separate units by San Francisco–based MEM Architecture—comes with all the fabulousness you'd expect from professional interiors and skyline views at a tony city address.
Jeffers—known for his love of a bold palette and posh midcentury stylings with just an edge of punk rock—has transformed this 3,500-square-foot residence into a subtly feminine, modern bohemian fantasia kitted out with sleek yet whimsical furnishings and bright pops of color—all of which, except for the art hanging on the walls, comes with the purchase of the place.
The vibe here is playful, riffing on themes of nature with an etched-glass foyer by artist Amanda Weil that evokes a "forest in the sky," and soothing cloud wallpaper in the second bedroom with the feeling of Japanese painting—each of these earthly moments serving to highlight the apartment's key amenity: those killer sky views outside the many windows.
The sweeping apartment is well suited for entertaining, with intimate dedicated areas to host everything from formal dinner parties to casual hangouts in the "cuddle puddle," where a fully cushioned floor and throw pillows make for an enticing spot to lounge or read beneath modular built-in shelving that echoes the architecture through the picture window. There is also, of course, an amply gorgeous kitchen with glass storage for your prettiest dishes and cookware; a countertop range; and seating at the marble breakfast bar.
Each space is its own experience. While common areas pop with a coral-toned sofa, scarlet dining chairs, and sunny counter stools, the master bedroom is a study in tranquility, dressed in organic shades of gray and white that exactly echo the colors of San Francisco through the wall of windows opposite the bed. There is a massive walk-in closet, naturally, with a wallpapered ceiling and glam pendant lighting, as well as a spa-like bathroom featuring more midcentury-inspired patterns and a grand soaking tub.
Additional living spaces include a chic study with built-in shelving and views to ponder; stylish sitting areas throughout; and a seriously splashy powder room. This house is a work of art.
