A penthouse atop San Francisco’s newest collection of boutique residences designed by world-renowned architect Robert A.M. Stern has hit the market for at $7.1 million.
Rising from a former parking lot above the historic Nob Hill neighborhood, Crescent is comprised of 44 custom residences, representing the first new development in the neighborhood in decades, according to the Grosvenor property group.
The interior design and furnishings of the three-bedroom, three-bath, 1,825-square-foot residence combines the talents of designer Champalimaud Design and San Francisco-based Jeff Schlarb Design Studio.
With 925 square feet of exterior space, the penthouse at California and Powell streets is crowned with an expansive private roof terrace featuring sweeping views of downtown San Francisco, the bay, Coit Tower and North Beach, and has two additional private terraces.
“We are excited to debut this model penthouse at Crescent, which is an idyllic interpretation of a contemporary luxury retreat located in one of the world’s greatest neighborhoods,” said Steve Buster, senior vice president of development for Grosvenor Americas, in a news release. “The home is an indoor-outdoor top-floor oasis, as residents have a privately accessed sprawling rooftop terrace overlooking downtown San Francisco and the Bay, along with two private terraces immediately off the living spaces. “
Residents enter the penthouse through a formal foyer and hallway with a gallery wall. Three bedrooms overlook downtown San Francisco and the bay. The master bedroom “is a tranquil oasis,” according to the news release, with a private terrace that spans the room’s entire south wall.
The interior presents a palette of soft blues, teals and neutral tones to complement the brass, gold and glass accents. Schlarb, the interior designer, said he and his team took inspiration from the neighborhood’s historic charm.
“My vision in designing the penthouse at Crescent was to imagine a resident feeling inspired every time they enter their home,” Schlarb said. “We kept drawing upon the idea of creating a custom, romantic space that feels exciting and familiar at the same time, straddling a careful balance of maximalism and softness while honoring the unparalleled architecture and world-class design of this one-of-a-kind building and its residences. The color palette, in particular, draws upon nature and complements the stunning sky and bay sight lines visible from terraces that span the home.”
