Built in the 1960s but in lavish Art Deco style, the penthouse at 30 Miller Place represents high San Francisco luxury, and not just because of its address atop tony Nob Hill.
At just 3,000-square-feet—an approachable size given its $7 million-plus price tag—the residence, renovated in 2005, spans two stories with opulent design elements including quarter sawn oak floors, intricate wood veneers, richly veined marble, concealed shades, Lutron lighting, and silver-leaf ceilings ready to catch the twinkle of moonlight and city lights through the many floor to ceiling windows.
Accessed directly via a key-controlled elevator, the unit has an open floor plan that optimizes its panoramic views of the skyline and bay.
The great room is crowned by a glowing inset ceiling and houses a cozy sitting area with a glamorous mirrored fireplace surround. This lies opposite the dining area, which is situated beneath a tiered crystal chandelier and has a backdrop of the Pacific Ocean.
The kitchen is every bit as dapper with silver cabinet trim to match the stainless steel appliances, marble countertops, and plenty of cabinets for storage. Another adjacent lounge area has floating shelving and a media unit. When it comes time for a cocktail, the curvaceous wood-clad bar room is reminiscent of a stylish yacht.
The penthouse has just two bedrooms but lovely they are with textural wallpaper, plush carpet, and more glowing inset ceilings. The two-and-a-half bathrooms are a sight, swathed in marble with mirrored cabinets and dual-sink vanities.
A corner terrace provides a birds-eye view of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge beyond.
Size: 2,920 sq. ft.
Asking price: $7,295,000
