You know that old saying, don't judge a house by its facade? Well, once you get a tour of this expansive home cut into a hillside in Glen Park, you may have a little laugh at its humble first impression.
Originally built in 1971, the midcentury-modern house, appearing as a simple one-story from the curb, rather surprisingly opens up into a fully contemporary residence with indoor/outdoor spaces and amenities—including a home gym and a hot tub with views of downtown San Francisco—spanning more than 6,000 square feet across four stories.
Enormous, arched windows and skylights flood the open living and dining rooms and kitchen with natural light and vistas both urban and wooded (there's even a picturesque babbling brook!), creating an earthy-meets-metropolitan vibe echoed inside via lots of wood and stainless steel. Practical design elements include lots of built-in storage, while a party mentality has definitely informed the rest of the plan: The main kitchen has updated appliances, two sinks, and an oversized island, plus easy access to a large deck for drinks in the foreground of the city skyline.
When it comes time for a movie after dinner, the media room is equipped with a wine closet and blackout shades. A separate indoor/outdoor lounge space has its own wet bar, fireplace, sauna, and fully collapsable Nano-doors to take in the outdoors.
Even the most experienced hedonist needs rest, and the private quarters provide tranquil moments. There are a total of four bedrooms, including a large master suite with a spa-like soaking tub, roomy shower, and private office.
Exercise is also on the table here with a 710-square-foot gym; you can rinse off in the outdoor shower—located in a lovely courtyard—afterward. Before bed, enjoy a book in the spacious library.
