Expansive, expressive, exquisite, and set in one of San Francisco’s most desirable and iconic high-end residential neighborhoods, Residence 950 is the type of home for which adjectives were invented. One that makes hyperbole irrelevant. Here, incomparable space and style coalesce in a dreamy, park-like urban oasis featuring one of the city’s largest residential lots, the kind of outdoor space typically only found elsewhere, and a backdrop of twinkling lights and tranquil bay views. Residence 950 was just listed for sale by Joel Goodrich of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Pacific Heights for $40,500,000, making it the most expensive listing in the city.
Starting with its coveted Russian Hill setting, Residence 950 strikes an alluring pose high above the city, enveloped by all its glory and offering a true urban experience that is also, miraculously, a serene refuge.
Outdoors, city lights shimmer all around the perimeter, interrupted only by the Bay’s vast expanse of blue and a fringe of mountains in the background. Beautifully designed outdoor spaces offer opportunities for repose and regalia, whether you’re simply lounging a deux on the built-in, heated outdoor couch in front of the custom fire feature with the whole city spread out before you, or entertaining hundreds. The space easily accommodates and embraces each extreme while inviting outdoor entertainment in a myriad of forms. Swim laps in the 40-foot, cantilevered, Norwegian stone infinity pool while the lights dance along the surface. Enjoy a meal prepared in your fully outfitted outdoor kitchen in your pergola-covered, outdoor dining room. Hold a movie premiere in your outdoor theatre with projector and retractable screen.
The details are equally striking inside the magnificent main residence, where views from nearly every room are enhanced by global design and meticulously chosen materials.
The lower floor comprises an immense entertainment space that opens directly to the outdoors through sliding glass walls, a one-of-a-kind, custom Jonathan Browning–designed bar, a subterranean art gallery/sport court with DMX theatrical lighting, and a 2,000-bottle, temperate-controlled wine room.
Ride the sleek glass elevator upstairs to the main floor, where gracious living and dining spaces lead out to a wraparound view terrace. Just adjacent is the sleek kitchen, with a Boffi kitchen island and cabinetry, Calacatta oro countertops, a walk-in pantry, and seamless access out to a private covered patio and verdant gardens.
On the top floor, the master suite enjoys a perch overlooking the city, with a panorama of glittery nightlights and a private deck for a closer look, plus vaulted ceilings and a Boffi walk-in closet. Calacatta oro marble dazzles on almost every surface of the luxe master bath, which also enjoys its own private terrace, as well as a soaking tub and waterproof Séura TV in the walk-in shower.
The compound is so spectacular, it’s impossible not to be immersed in the luxuriousness of every inch of the 9,500 square feet. However, the residence is not content just to look beautiful. The LEED Platinum Certified home was also planned and realized to wrap owners in a surplus of health and wellness, with the most state-of-the-art air and water filtration systems on the market today.
Additionally, the wide lawn connects the main residence to a complete wellness cottage and guest house that includes a glass steam room and sauna with custom stone benches, a massage room with DuChateau wood floors, an outdoor Boffi pipe shower, and a Diamond Spa hot tub overlooking Telegraph Hill. And because luxury means accessibility and convenience, the compound also includes a private tunnel entry leading to the large garage with auto turntable and Tesla charging station, a mud room, and a dog washing station, as well as a programmable sound and lighting system throughout the property.
