A Parisian Daydream Atop Nob Hill

1242 Sacramento #1


Owned and curated by celebrated San Francisco-based interior designer, Arthur McLaughlin, and published in Architectural Digest and LuxeSF magazines, 1242 Sacramento #1 offers a romantic yet comfortable city residence.  Set within the bougainvillea-draped Beaux-arts building atop San Francisco’s Nob Hill, this Parisian dream comes to fruition. Architecturally significant interiors honor a European sensibility while effortlessly hosting a global aesthetic of contemporary materials and a modern San Franciscan lifestyle. 


Arthur’s passion for exquisite design is manifested in his own home: herringbone rift quarter sawn white oak floors, in an Eighteenth Century-style oil finish, span the apartment. In the open yet intimate great room restored gumwood panels in the living room are matched with oak panels and coffered ceilings in the dining room. An antique eighteenth century French fireplace mantel sourced in Santa Barbara is accompanied by French doors opening to Juliette balconies overlooking the iconic architecture of Grace Cathedral, styled after Notre Dame of Paris.


The apartment’s 1,610 square feet extend in a dynamic floor plan suited to myriad preferences. A private chef’s kitchen features a bold palette, granite countertops, and Wolf, Miele, and Thermador appliances. Two ethereal bedrooms, a media room, and two highly-designed baths create opportunities for a master wing with bedroom and office or couture closet, and a private guest wing, additional office, or studio. The luxurious master bath is highlighted by a custom vanity by Luis Norori Antique Restoration with green marble countertop and custom antiqued mirror. 


Ideal as a quintessential pied-a-terre or inspiring full-time city residence within a boutique, six-residence building, #1 includes the amenities of in-home laundry, a nearby private fitness room, and garage parking for one car.


Situated atop Nob Hill, 1242 Sacramento is surrounded by quintessential San Francisco architecture, and steps from three major hotels, Huntington Park, and favorite restaurants. The Bay Area’s renowned culture, wine country, and coastline expand the San Francisco experience.
