Two fabulous house-like duplexes between the Castro and Dolores Park! Meticulous down-to-the-studs renovation with design by award-winning YA Studio Architecture and Martine Paquin Design.
Open concept living, soaring ceilings, serene outdoor spaces and exceptional finishes make these homes unique and unforgettable.
4024, the lower apartment, has a gracious entry with wide-plank oak flooring, soaring ceilings, and recessed lighting. At the entry is a coat closet, chic powder room with striking black marble floating vanity and accent wall, and side-by-side LG washer/dryer. The hallway opens to an incredible open eat-in kitchen, dining area, and living room. The kitchen is equipped with a quartz waterfall island with breakfast bar and stainless sink, custom Leicht cabinets in light gray lacquer and dark ash wood veneer, Island Stone glass backsplash, a built-in pantry, and a suite of built-in Thermador appliances: refrigerator, dishwasher, built-in oven, microwave, cooktop, hood, and stylish 92-bottle wine refrigerator!
The dining room is framed on one wall by a dramatic built-in gas fireplace with floor-to-ceiling Obsidian tile surround. Light streams into the living/dining room from floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors to a Juliet balcony overlooking the lush backyard. At the front of this level is the master bedroom, with lovely large Bay windows. A beautiful ensuite master bathroom offers a floating double vanity with matte black Graff fixtures, and a spectacular marble steam shower.
A chic staircase with glass railing leads downstairs to the lower level, which houses an open foyer/entry area, a second bedroom and an ensuite bathroom (with hallway access) featuring contemporary Porcelain tile, glass-enclosed shower over tub, and a floating vanity. A family room or bedroom is outfitted with a rustic-modern paneled Barn door, and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open directly to a handsome deck and the sizable grassy lawn, which is surrounded by built-in planters and is hot-tub ready and equipped with a gas line for a BBQ and a gas firepit! On this level is also direct garage access. Each unit has one car parking in the garage (EV charger ready) as well as bike storage.
The upper unit, 4026, is accessed via a flight of stairs from the entry, leading up to a sunlit landing with oak wide-plank flooring. At the back of this level is a gorgeous open kitchen, dining area and living room with an attached deck. The kitchen boasts a velvet gray quartz waterfall island with breakfast bar and an oversized sink, a Thermador appliance suite including a 58-bottle wine refrigerator, a quartz slab backsplash, and custom Leicht cabinetry. The dining room area is framed by a gas fireplace with floor-to-ceiling Obsidian porcelain tile surround. The living area provides a seamless indoor/outdoor experience with French doors to a walk-out wood deck, gas BBQ-ready, and a glass railing that gives the feeling of floating above the treetops.
At the front of this level are two bright and sunny bedrooms with oversized windows, and two bathrooms, both with stylish porcelain tile and floating vanities. One has a glass shower and the other a shower over tub, and there is both a coat closet and a stacked Miele washer/dryer closet off the hallway.
Ascending the floating glass staircase to the top floor, one reaches the master suite, which is truly magnificent. Giant windows and glass French doors display an expansive walk-out deck with glass railing and fill the room with streaming sunlight throughout the day, and a south-facing window displays a view of Twin Peaks. A spacious walk-in closet is off the bedroom, as well as the exquisite master bathroom, with a soaking tub with black matte in-wall Graff fixtures, a walk-in glass shower ensconced in floor-to-ceiling slabs of porcelain tile with a bench, and a double floating Wetstyle vanity with mosaic tile backsplash. A skylight overhead adds great natural light to the space. At the top of the stairs is a cabinet leading to a sprawling storage area under the roof, perfect for suitcases. This unit shares the garage with the lower flat (side by side), with one-car parking (EV charger ready) for unit 4026 and designated bicycle storage.
Fantastic Smart Home features for both units throughout include in-ceiling speakers, solar ready, wired for high-speed internet, 4-zone radiant heat, Nest thermostats, Ring doorbells, unlimited hot water with a backup tank, and a fireplace heat shift system (allowing art/TV directly above the fireplace). Design features include modern trimless doors and flushed baseboards, “hidden” screws, linear tiled shower drains, floor-to-ceiling Italian porcelain slabs, frameless glass railings, floor-to-ceiling glass shower panels, and Marvin doors and windows. Except for the facade, the original house has been gutted and new concrete foundation, beams and studs have been installed. The peaceful outdoor spaces for both units benefit from being in the middle of 18th Street, surrounded by the beautiful gardens of Noe and Hartford Streets.
The location of these homes is at the height of convenience and walkability. With a 98 Walkscore, you are surrounded by shops and restaurants on nearby Castro Street, Market, and Church, as well as nearby Safeway and Whole Foods. Pop over to Corona Heights Park or the bucolic rolling hills of Dolores Park and the Helen Diller playground, and enjoy the sunshine in this part of town! Convenient to downtown with an abundance of public transit options or to the south bay with tech shuttles. This rare combination of a vibrant location and tranquil outdoor retreats is truly unique. Don’t miss these stunning, brand-new homes in the center of it all!
Eureka Valley and Dolores Heights, which includes the world-renowned Castro district, have a wonderfully rich history as the epicenter of the gay rights movement. Today, the neighborhood is undergoing another transition as the long-standing gay community welcomes young families to the increasingly diverse neighborhood. On the eastern end, coveted Liberty Hill offers tremendous views and one-of-a-kind residences.
