Tucked away on a serene block in the heart of Mission Dolores, 50 Oakwood is an oasis in the heart of the city. Designed by renowned architect Stanley Saitowitz of Natoma Architects, 50 Oakwood is an exceptional blend of modernity and classicism.
Four levels flow seamlessly into each other, helped by floor-to-ceiling walls of glass, as well as abundant natural stone. A custom-cut, 16-foot-long Italian Santa Catarina travertine fireplace highlights the main living room, sharing the second level with the grand kitchen. Custom grey oak Boffi cabinetry with hidden wall systems and a 15 ft. long Boffi island with quartz countertop and integrated sink centers the room and provides just one of several dining options.
The master suite, with its secluded terrace, travertine bath and shower, and outfitted dual custom Porro wardrobes, is joined on the third floor by two spacious bedrooms with their own travertine bath and a light-filled office. A self-contained in-law/au pair apartment on the lower level has its own entrance, kitchen and laundry, as well as a sunken patio leading up to the backyard.
There are expansive stepped terraces on all levels, including on the top-floor pentroom, where front and back rooftop terraces are accessed through disappearing glass doors that give way to glorious views from downtown to the hills.
No expense has been spared in this residence, where the finest finishes and every amenity rule. A home-automation system, powered by Savant, controls aspects of the home from wall-mounted iPads or directly from your phone; from anywhere you may be in the world.
50 Oakwood sits in an accessible and exciting part of San Francisco, next to Dolores Park and some of the city’s best restaurants. But behind the concrete, glass and steel frame is a study in classic natural materials that create living spaces so lovely, so clean, so full of light and air, that once you enter, you may never want to leave.
