Spectacular and unique view condominium perched atop Russian Hill overlooking the Bay. 1160 Greenwich is a three-bedroom, three full and one-half bathroom residence across two levels. On the main floor is a spectacular great room with floor-to-ceiling windows facing north to the blue waters of the San Francisco Bay and Alcatraz. A wraparound terrace with glass railing displays the sweeping span of the North Bay, as well as views to the east of Coit Tower, Treasure Island, and the Bay Bridge. The terrace is wonderfully deep and has room for seating and entertaining.
The great room consists of a living area centered around a wood-burning fireplace with stone mantle flanked by built-in cabinetry and shelving, and a dining area next to the chef’s kitchen. Off the dining area is a petite, enclosed alcove with a pop of greenery on the lattice. Hardwood floors gleam throughout the unit, and there are in-ceiling speakers overhead. The gourmet chef’s kitchen is equipped with custom maple cabinetry, granite countertops, a Subzero refrigerator, a Viking Range with stainless backsplash and an Asko dishwasher. There is a breakfast bar for informal dining and around the corner is a large pantry closet for storage.
A striking curved staircase leads downstairs, and there is a clever custom bookshelf built into the curve under the stairs at the landing. The lower floor houses three bedrooms all with ensuite baths, with two bedrooms directly facing stunning views of the Bay. The primary bedroom, with an incredible view directly facing the water through oversized windows, boasts a walk-in closet with stacked washer/dryer, a glass door to a viewing deck, and a beautifully renovated ensuite bathroom adorned with mosaic tile, with a glass-enclosed shower, a double vanity, a soaking tub, and a built-in linen closet. The second bedroom also has a fabulous Bay view and access to the viewing deck, as well as two closets and an ensuite bathroom with shower over tub. The third bedroom is quiet, excellent for an office or guest room, and has an ensuite bathroom with shower. There is also a sizeable storage closet off the hallway.
The unit includes one-car parking in the garage, and a spacious storage area below. 1160 Greenwich is a boutique four unit building, tucked away on an idyllic cul-de-sac at the top of Russian Hill. It is just half a block from the George Sterling Park and Alice Marble Tennis Courts, and close to fabulous restaurants and shops on Hyde and Polk Streets.
