Hot Property: New SF penthouse includes roof deck wired for cable
Published 6:28 pm, Friday, August 16, 2013
Set on a block sprinkled with vibrantly colored Edwardian homes is a two-level penthouse inside a newly constructed building in Hayes Valley.
The three-bedroom, three-bathroom condominium is highlighted by a great room with a 12-foot glass door that opens to a private terrace. The 1,745-square-foot condo also includes a panoramic roof deck that looks out at San Francisco Bay, downtown and the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Among the amenities included with the penthouse are radiant heat floors, built-in audio, European appliances and custom closet systems. The building itself features a video intercom, and the condominium has its own security system and comes with a storage locker and one-car parking.
"What's great about this place is that it's new construction in an old neighborhood," said Masti Pahlbod with Better Homes and Garden Real Estate, who is listing 1138 Page St. for $1.849 million. "People love to have modern properties but they can be hard to come across in established areas."
The penthouse opens up to a modest foyer which includes a reading nook. The lower level offers two bedrooms, one of which is a master suite, and two bathrooms. One of the bedrooms could serve as a family room, office or media room. Both bathrooms offer stainless steel and stone finishes.

The second bedroom, staged as a child's room, includes a narrow, tall alcove defined by two rectangular windows stacked atop one another. The architectural design adds a unique and definitive look to the space.
Upstairs, four skylights illuminate the great room, which looks out at the neighborhood and serves as the entertainment hub of the home. A private terrace offers views of the patchwork of homes and green spaces surrounding the building, and provides a gathering place to look at the clouds and stars.
The chef's kitchen plays home to Caesarstone counters, designer lighting and a breakfast bar. Nearby, a dining area is set beneath a vaulted ceiling and beside a long gallery wall that provides an idea spot for displaying artwork.
In addition to the terrace off the great room, the penthouse includes a deeded roof deck wired for cable and Internet. The deck also includes a gas line that could accommodate a barbecue or fire pit. Panoramic views of San Francisco are visible from this deck day and night.
The penthouse is set in Hayes Valley, which has grown steadily since the Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989, in which a mile of the Nimitz Freeway collapsed. The freeway was rerouted during the rebuilding and homes, boutiques and restaurants have steadily developed during the following decades. For more information, go to 1138page.com.
