Classic, elegant & timeless, this meticulously renovated, full-floor apartment at 1090 Chestnut combines large-proportioned principal rooms – with oversized windows framing views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz – with a private wing of four bedrooms.
Sophisticated arrival: The elevator lands at a private vestibule, a large glass door opens to an exceptional entry hall. The first of several magnificent entertaining rooms, the warmly paneled library/media room delivers a stunning view of the Golden Gate Bridge. A living room with soaring ceiling features incomparable North Bay views from oversized windows that pivot open for fresh air. At center, a surround of elegant Haisa marble highlights the fireplace. The adjacent dining room with sizable art walls views Alcatraz. A large, eat-in kitchen features topline appliances, wine storage, and extensive cabinetry including glass-fronted displays. Neighboring the library is a beautiful powder bath. Entertaining infrastructure includes sophisticated lighting, power-operated window shades and inlaid audio speakers.
At the opposite end of a wide corridor, the serene master bedroom is highlighted by dual southern and western exposures. Amenities include a wood-paneled dressing area, and bath with spacious shower, stand-alone tub, and a water closet. Golden Gate Bridge views extend to all rooms of the master suite. Two large bedrooms on the southern façade enjoy neighborhood outlooks & views, marble-clad en-suite baths and extensively outfitted and brightly lit closets. A fourth bedroom designed for service, currently styled as an at-home office, faces the North Bay.
One of San Francisco’s most notable pre-war residential buildings, 1090 Chestnut is ideally located on one of Russian Hill’s most serene flat blocks near a cul de sac, steps from George Sterling, Alice Marble & Francisco Parks, and minutes from the restaurants and shops of Polk, Chestnut & Union Streets.
In preparation for its centennial anniversary, the Willis Polk & Co.-designed 1090 Chestnut just completed a five-year/$10M investment of infrastructure improvements, including a PGE service upgrade, dual elevator modernizations, comprehensive exterior restoration & waterproofing, sash replacement for most windows, boiler replacement, and façade re-landscaping.
