Pure Modernism - San Francisco, CA
Purity of line, design rigor and an airy livability characterize this treasure of a home which embraces the surrounding landscape with a sophisticated ease. Built in 1962 for a serious Bay Area art collector, Joseph Esherick's timeless example of Mid-century residential design has been meticulously preserved, a luminous series of grand spaces in which light performs eloquently, linked by a powerful and iconic spiral stair. Bay and Alcatraz views, two living rooms, two wood burning fireplaces, approx. 14' ceilings, ebonized floors, sliding glass doors open the home on all sides, A+ location. Care has been taken in the design of the tremendous volumes down to minute details, creating a home both luxurious and restrained. Exquisite and rare.
