Ritzy, five-story manse atop Russian Hill asks $11 million

By

If it's life on top of the world you crave, then head up Russian Hill to get a gander of this fully renovated contemporary home with views of the city's most glorious landmarks as well as of Marin.

Built in 1990 with soaring ceilings and walls of windows that soak up all the natural light, the 5,800-square-foot house is spacious, airy, and hyper luxe.


Five bedrooms and a dreamy seven-and-a-half baths span five full stories where dark hardwoods, marble finishes, and modern fireplaces create a unified feeling throughout. And it's all about the details—just take a look at the central staircase with its glass banister that seems to float between levels (of course, you can always take the elevator).

The kitchen—clad in white marble and dark macassar wood that envelops the built-in, double-door refrigerator—opens to an intimate living space with a fireplace; the formal dining area, meanwhile, has elegant recessed lighting and a delicate chandelier.

The master bedroom is a plush retreat with a sitting area and fireplace and French doors that open onto the terrace with a sweeping panorama of the city. Also not to be missed is the master's sprawling walk-in closet with its large, circular skylight.

On the top level, a comfy family room fits snugly into the treetops; there are also multiple patios and an expansive roof deck for basking in the sun (or fog).
