A San Francisco mansion on the edge of the Pacific is set to hit the market on Friday for $32 million.
Compass’s Neal Ward listing says the 7,540-square-foot home is in the city’s Seacliff neighborhood and offers over 100 feet of waterfront. This means that almost every room has a view of the ocean and the Golden Gate Bridge, with Marin County in the distance.
“Sea Cliff is a very exclusive and private enclave,” Ward said. “There are literally only 25 homes on the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea. If people shop here, they can live here for the rest of their lives.”
In fact, the house is on the market for the first time in 35 years.
Built in 1941, the house was the former home of the late Michael Taylor, the interior designer famous for developing the “California look.” The style was “hailed as a new look in the decor of the 1950s and his 1960s” and is defined by open spaces, neutral colors and “light and airy, casual Californian style.” His obituary in the New York TimesHe purchased the home in 1970 and died in 1986 at the age of 59.
The home was purchased in 1987 by the late Arthur Ciocca and his wife Carlyse for $2.35 million, according to PropertyShark records. Arthur Ciocca founded The Wine Group in 1981 and is now his second largest wine company in the United States. He died in December when he was 84 years old. His obituary for wine industry advisors.
“Without any surprises, I bought it 10 minutes after seeing it. How special it is,” Chokka said in a statement. “Isn’t there another place in San Francisco where he can get where he wants to go in 10 minutes, with the Pacific Ocean as his backyard?”
The couple dropped the house on stud while maintaining “both the original architectural integrity and Michael Taylor’s iconic ‘California look’.” I worked with Porter and Steinwedel on the redesign.
Marketing materials say the home maintains its original exposed ceiling beams and boasts herringbone wood floors. The living room has a fireplace and windows overlooking the bay, while the formal dining room also overlooks the ocean.
“We really wanted an Italian-influenced Californian feel to shape the views that come into the house,” Ciocca added. become,
These are the navigation lights of ships entering the bay and the lights of the Golden Gate Bridge. ”
Other amenities include a library lounge with wet bar leading out to a garden terrace, and an upper level main bedroom suite with two bathrooms, each with its own dressing room. Two private offices. The lower level has a lounge area, a wine tasting room and a terrace with views of mature cypress trees.
The pool was designed by Taylor. It also has a gated staircase to the beach. This is something only a handful of homes in Sea Cliff have, Ward noted, adding that the homes are meticulously maintained.
“For a property on the ocean, that’s very important,” he said. “This is an unusual state. Some may want to change some of the finishes to their liking, but you can move in right away.”
