Located on San Franciscos Waterfront at Golden Gateway Commons, a short walk to The Ferry Builiding, the Financial District, North Beach, AT&T Park and the home of the 34th Americas Cup on Pier 27.
This condominium is entered by following a garden walkway from the entry elevator. This spacious two-level home with soaring 17 foot ceilings and greenhouse skylights enjoys a sunny southern exposure of the city skyline.
Evening views are enhanced by the Pyramid, Mandarin Hotel and EmbarcaderoCenter.
The home has been remodeled “from the studs up”. Every room has been remodeled, including all electrical, plumbing, sheetrock, paint etc. Designer touches enhance every room including the living room, kitchen, dining area, lower bedroom/library, lower bathroom/powder room. There is a bridge walkway to the upper bedrooms, and baths. The sliding glass doors from the living room and lower bedroom open to two sunny south facing decks.
The kitchen is a gourmet's delight with gas range, dishwasher, compactor, and excellent custom counters, cabinets & storage. The master bedroom suite has its own bath, a walk in closet and private deck. The third bedroom with full bath, south facing deck and laundry area complete the upper level.
The neighborhood by the bay, North Waterfront extends from North Beach, beneath the foot of Telegraph Hill to Fort Mason and Crissy Field. The location means great views, good weather, and a lively street scene. Dog walkers, bicyclists, roller bladers, runners, and families pushing strollers join the tourists on the Embarcadero. Fishermen cast their lines into the waters next to romantic couples on the water front piers that extend into the bay. Aquatic Park provides a protected cove for the hardy swimmers of the Dolphin Swim Club who brave the frigid waters of the bay.
Locals eschew Fisherman's Wharf for Pier 23, where bikers mingle with bankers on their outdoor patio. Fog City Diner, at the junction of Battery and the Embarcadero is a beloved San Francisco institution, serving upscale food in an authentic 1930s diner. For special occasions, Teatro Zinzani presents an exotic evening of cabaret and five-course gourmet meals under its circus tents. On July 4th, there's no better place to watch the fireworks than from a balcony in the North Waterfront.
This is a walkable neighborhood, with downtown San Francisco a few minutes by foot, and access to shopping in the Marina. Public transportation to downtown is a trip back in time, thanks to MUNI's vintage trolleys from around the world on the F-line, a fleet of restored street cars that trundle from Jones and Beach streets in Fisherman's Wharf along the Embarcadero, up Market Street to the Castro.
