A Baseball Lover’s Dream Home!

A Minimalist Condo for the Maximalist at Heart.

Find your bliss at the heart of the San Francisco waterfront in this sleek, minimalist condo in one of South Beach’s finest boutique buildings, just steps away from AT&T Park. One of only 14 residences designed by architect Gould Evans, 750 Second Street #301 is truly a rare gem. With only two units per floor, an exclusive elevator-stop entry opens to this bright and airy condo featuring floor-to-ceiling dual-pane windows, custom built-ins, a gas fireplace, and large living and dining area opening onto a walk-out deck. An open chef’s kitchen, equipped with top-of-the-line appliances and an oversized island, creates a fantastic space for relaxing and entertaining. Rich hardwood floors flow through the living space, and a striking wood ceiling and wood feature wall provide warm balance to the coolness of stainless steel, crisp white walls and tinted concrete. There are two spacious bedrooms – both with custom South African walnut closets– and two spa-like bathrooms with a steam shower in the master, and Venetian plaster accents. A great parking spot is deeded to the unit.

Located in one of San Francisco’s most vibrant neighborhoods, the home is right next to AT&T Park (home of the Giants) and South Beach’s exceptional restaurants, exciting nightlife, the waterside promenade of the Embarcadero, and the future stadium of the Golden State Warriors. Walking distance from the Financial District and Union Square, it also offers easy access to the freeway, CalTrain, BART and Muni.

Luxurious Landmark Welcomes New Owners

A Four-Story Dream Home with Dazzling Views of the City & Bay


From the outside, 22 Portola Drive looks much as it did when it was built in 1948. One of a group of row of homes in Diamond Heights, its impeccably preserved facade remains true to the architect’s cohesive vision. Inside, however, this 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home dazzles with sweeping views of The City and the Bay, a grand top-floor master suite with a solarium and deck and a custom-designed glass and steel staircase that is a four-story work of art.

Beautifully remodeled and expanded in 2003, 22 Portola is truly one-of-a-kind. In addition to allowing direct access to the garage and housing a 144-bottle Sub-Zero wine refrigerator, the welcoming foyer offers the first glimpse of the grand staircase created by Oakland artist John Lewis, whose work includes the Oklahoma City Memorial. Rising from the ground floor to the skylight-capped top level, the planes of rippled, textured glass create a stunning waterfall of light at the center of the home.

On the second level, broad windows in the open-plan great room bring breathtaking views of San Francisco and the Bay Bridge into a cozy living room with fireplace, a dining area with custom-designed lighting and a modern chef’s kitchen with granite counters and dual Miele ovens. Remote-controlled window shades filter morning light and provide privacy at the touch of a button. Behind the kitchen, a large family room doubles as a home theater, with sound-proofed walls, 7-channel surround sound and a convenient half bath. A private garden offers a leafy retreat just beyond the back door.

The third level features two comfortable rooms with gorgeous views at the front – perfect for bedroom or office use — and a full bath with two sinks, tub and shower steps away in the hall. A third bedroom with en-suite bath overlooks the back patio. And a laundry room with elevated, front-loading washer and dryer rounds out this floor.

At the fourth level, the staircase opens out to a solarium with windows that stretch from floor to ceiling and wrap into skylights at the top. Sliding doors grant direct access to a spacious deck with jaw-dropping panoramic views and room (and structural support) for a hot tub.

Designed for entertaining and relaxing, with plenty of space for lounge furnishings and a built in wet bar, this sunny aerie also fills the house with fresh air, warmth and light. Remote controlled windows at the top of the stairs create cross-ventilation that cools the entire house on hot days, and when San Francisco’s famous fog rolls in, 7-zone programmable radiant heating keeps every room snug and warm. Solar panels on the roof (accessible via a pull-down ladder on this level) supply most of the home’s electrical needs.

Tucked at the back of the fourth level, the grand master suite is a serene oasis. Its large en-suite bath features two sinks, a glass-block shower and a tub. A walk-in closet offers ample storage space, while a hidden laundry chute eliminates the need for a hamper and for carrying clothes downstairs – just one of this home’s many thoughtful design features.

Located at the heart of San Francisco, 22 Portola is close to shops, restaurants and transit stops in Noe Valley, the Castro district, Glen Park and West Portal and offers easy access to downtown, as well as freeways to the East Bay and Peninsula.
