San Francisco, CA – January 26, 2012
– 230 Ritch Street
, an architect’s dream home in the South Beach neighborhood, is now on the market and represented by Zephyr Real Estate. Designed by Santos Prescott and Associates under the direction of Adèle Naudé Santos, FAIA, it is a splendid amalgam of beauty and utility.
The home features four spacious bedrooms and three full bathrooms in approximately 2,640 square feet of living space. The master suite encompasses a full floor complete with a soaring 22-foot ceiling and a private roof deck. The gourmet eat-in kitchen is appointed with luxury appliances including a Thermador range with barbecue grill, a Sub-zero refrigerator and Hansgrohe faucets. At the center of the home, the double-height living space looks out onto a tropical courtyard of palm trees that rise three stories high.
A highly-refined proportion and geometry create a home that is filled with sunlight and space and perfectly blends the outside with the interior. The structure, built in the 1930s, was originally a warehouse. At its conversion in 1998, every effort was made to retain the original sense of space and to utilize the original elements, such as the large timber beams. “Luxurious materials and finishes have been added throughout so that the home is a modern interpretation of the original,” explains Ms. Santos in her architect’s statement.
Additional features include a mezzanine overlooking the living space, a private street entrance, private garage parking with internal access, edge-grain birchwood floors, Miele washer and dryer, Siedle video intercom and BASWAphon acoustical plaster for sound absorption. An expansive wall of textured gunite concrete flanks the home’s main entrance and central staircase.
The home is listed with Seth Skolnick, a Zephyr Top Producer in 2009, 2010 and 2011. In 2004 he founded 46 Degree Properties, devoted exclusively to the sale of luxury properties of architectural importance. He is a member in good standing with the San Francisco, the California and the National Association of REALTORS® as well as Zephyr’s Premiere Property Group.
