Just hold on we’re going home” – Drake
Our President & CEO Budge Huskey and other top Coldwell Banker leaders are out west in San Francisco this weekend for the 2013 National Association of Realtors conference. While we’re currently headquartered out of Madison, NJ, we actually started out over 107 years ago in San Francisco after the “Great Earthquake of 1906“.
We’re paying an homage to our San Francisco roots this weekend at the NAR conference, and I couldn’t think of better way to highlight our original ‘hometown’ by showcasing 6 of San Francisco’s most beautiful homes.
This Grand Colonial Revival residence is referred to as The Face of Presidio Terrace. It occupies a vaulted position opposite the entrance gates of this wonderful and private community with lush garden views. This property isn’t just a home, it’s a veritable work of art. It’s a harmonious blend of colonial grandeur but with an infusion of “modern” throughout.
This home offers intimate living on the grandest of scales. This fully renovated gem is ideal for entertaining and is an art collector’s dream with its dramatic long entry gallery. While the estate has been completely updated, the home has retained its classically elegant look. Not only is the interior and exterior jaw-dropping; it offers views of the Pacific Union Club, Huntington Park and Grace Cathedral.
This is one serious condo! This home offers a floor plan perfectly suited to meet today’s lifestyle of entertaining and open comfortable living. Featuring windows that completely cover many of the condo’s walls, you get constant striking and inspiring views of the Bay Bridge and San Francisco.
This is the crown jewel of San Francisco and the kind of home you only see in the movies. “This iconic Pacific Heights mansion embodies timeless architectural flourishes and modern amenities that artfully compliment a contemporary metropolitan lifestyle: an uncommonly welcoming architectural tour de force”. This world class residence also commands breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Bay and even Alcatraz.
It’s rare to find a home as beautiful and with a space as flexible and open as this private view compound. Located in sunny Potrero Hill, the main residence of this stunning property was previously used as a live/work space and even as an art school! It features 30 foot soaring ceilings, panoramic views, and a second two-level house with great light and even more views!
The perfect home for those who love quiet time but also enjoy living in a thriving busy city. This oasis in the heart of San Francisco blends architectural drama with world-class views, seclusion and greenery. It features an in-door lap pool (whoah), grand staircase, gourmet kitchen, a gym, wine tasting room, fireplaces and a whole lot more. Add in the unobstructed Bay and City views and you have a harmonious blend of quiet city living.
Having just visited San Francisco for the first time this summer, I’ve fallen in love with the vibe the city offers. The homes aren’t too shabby either! If you’d like to see more beautiful homes from the Golden Gate City, visit coldwellbanker.com.
