Eminent architect Caspar Mol, one of the principal designers of the new Bay Bridge, owned, designed and built the three condominiums that comprise 119 Lyon Street. The importance of light and privacy, and the desire for a modern floor plan and open space clearly informed the contemporary design of this building. The unique offset configuration of the 3 units was designed to create the ultimate in privacy, with each unit connected, yet subtly removed from one another. This 2-level, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 1,627sf condo is set back far off the street, at the rear of the building, and enjoys windows on 3 sides, as well as sun-drenched skylights.

As you approach the front door, it’s hard to imagine that dramatic 17’ ceilings, floor to ceiling corner windows, and multiple sky lights will greet you. The first floor is comprised of a huge, open living/dining area and a beautifully upgraded modern kitchen with high end appliances, quartz counters and designer lighting. The living room is surrounded by windows purposefully placed to allow maximum sunlight and complete privacy. Huge double-stacked windows face north and west, overlooking greenery and the deeded garden patio below. The dining area is flexible enough for different size tables, easily accommodating 8-10 guests. Also on this floor is a generous en-suite bedroom and laundry closet.

A light-filled flight of stairs leads down to the large en-suite master bedroom with high ceilings and custom closets. French doors from the master bedroom open onto the deeded, sun-filled and gorgeous garden patio. The 3rd bedroom is also en-suite and has access to the garden down a brick path. The trees that encircle the garden provide a lush background and serious privacy.

Built in 2004, this building has all of the modernity of seismic construction and safety, yet has been updated and meticulously modernized to reflect today’s contemporary aesthetic.

This is truly a rare find, with generous square footage, big, dramatic, open public space, an abundance of wall space for the most prodigious art collector, and inundated with natural light, all while being centrally located. It’s an easy stroll to all the best neighborhoods; Nopa, The Haight, Divisadero Corridor, Cole Valley and Golden Gate Park. Life in San Francisco is busy, hectic and relentless, so to find a quiet, private oasis in the midst of a vibrant neighborhood is the ultimate find.
