Possessed of a joyous Bohemian spirit, endowed with the pure, crystalline Venetian light of its treasured North slope location, this well-crafted, fully detached, modern design delivers a rare livability and forthright simplicity, derived by a thoughtful rigor, carefully chosen materials and the expansive freshness of a true original. Engineered to maximize the effect of the site’s open space and glorious views, the impressive volumes of this rare residence are balanced by a series of intimate spaces, innate, classic detailing and a highly curated selection of hardworking materials which benefit from the artist’s eye.
Clad in a quintessential Victorian façade with a classic formal parlor, the home opens to the soaring ceilings of its expansive living and dining space, beautifully integrating a dramatic open staircase and a professionally appointed kitchen, embraced by inspiring views and many smart home features. The warm, modern rusticity of poured concrete counters, architectural salvage, and custom cabinetry joins forces with an impressive culinary suite to create the ultimate kitchen for entertaining. Opening to the deck and garden and its Twin Peaks views, it is the heart of this home.
A serene bedroom, spacious bath with claw footed tub, well-articulated pantry, laundry and storage area, and clever lofted tiny library retreat complete the main floor. Warm tumbled limestone, softwood and oak hardwoods, and tailored modern lighting lend a sophisticated simplicity to the space.
The master suite is an enviable penthouse room with a private deck and knockout views from Twin Peaks to downtown.
The lower level is a polished apartment with bamboo flooring, post and beam design, separate laundry, classic wainscot and hexagon tiled bath, and full kitchen.
The sheltered patio and professionally landscaped garden feature raised beds, culinary and herb plantings, and a natural stone patio.
Completing the home is a one-car garage with robust storage and off-street parking for a second car in the drive.
Close to shopping and parks, endowed with a forthright modernism and the infectious spirit of its artistic roots, the home at 606 Kansas invites a life well-lived in a sought after Potrero location.
