Sunday, January 29, 2012

Take a look at this 16,000 square foot dream house for sale for $32 million! From the offering site:
"The residence at 2701 Broadway is a stately neoclassical-revival home situated at the apex of the Gold Coast. ... One of the highest elevations in Pacific Heights with unparalleled views spanning from the Golden Gate Bridge in the west to the Bay Bridge and City skyline in the east. Originally built in 1910, entirely rescripted and architecturally restored in 2002 by Moller Willrich Architecture and Design. Seven bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, and four half-baths, plus two family rooms, two offices, two kitchens, three rooftop terraces, a basketball/sport court. Side-by-side garage parking for two cars. Five levels, all accessible by a commercial speed elevator, comprising over 16,000 square feet. Classical architecture, pure lines, properness of scale with superb millwork and hand-planed, wide-plank walnut floors on all levels.... The residence is distinguished by its classical balance of elegance and 21st century function, creating a truly inspired residence. The home has a grand but subtle presence informed by refined details of Greek revival architecture such as well stated cornices and columns. 

The original house at 2701 Broadway was designed for a lumber magnate in 1910 by the well-known San Francisco architect James Miller at the height of his career. Of this prominent location, architects of the world renowned Panama Pacific International Exposition of 1915 would later say, 'The finest point of observation [of the Exposition] would be at the corner of Divisadero Street and Broadway.'

Its transformation into a one-of-a-kind residence began during the late 1990s. The owners then were clear in their aesthetic objective: first and foremost, to preserve the home's classic architecture yet instill in it a modern and balanced family atmosphere with style and character. Through the careful planning and design of architects Stephen Willrich and Ian Moller of Moller Willrich Architects, that goal was achieved."

 Yes, I'd say that goal was most certainly achieved: 


So what do you think? Do you love this house as much as I do?
