A roof deck crowning 2646 Union St. offers sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Palace of Fine Arts and San Francisco Bay.

A compound. A sanctuary. A work of art. An environmentally conscious masterpiece. The four-bedroom, seven-and-a-half bathroom contemporary at 2646 Union St. in Cow Hollow is all this and more.

“Residence 2646 is the pinnacle of San Francisco residential design; a vision of what naturally beautiful and functional living should be,” said Val Steele of Compass, who is listing the five-level contemporary for $29.8 million. “Luxurious features, meticulous design, and future-oriented thinking find form in a living environment unlike any other.”

Every floor of the LEED Platinum-certified residence features a terrace, many accessed through collapsible glass walls. A blend of innovative technology and stunning design, 2646 Union St. is the handiwork of Troon Pacific, a company obsessed with superlative design that’s sustainable and captivating.

“Troon Pacific is San Francisco’s green building experts,” Steele said. “At its core, the company is dedicated to responsibility, high design and performance.”

Next-generation technology radiates throughout the luxury abode. Smart home technology abounds within the residence, which includes premium

entertainment systems and a Tesla Powerwall that provides sustainable backup energy. The Homeworks lighting control system enables residents to tune the light according to their mood and time of day, while the Savant system integrates all the smart home automation systems. There’s a standalone audio/visual room, Lutron lighting control system, integrated USB charging ports, hydronic heating with individual controls for all the major rooms, a Tesla car charger and a temperature and humidity -ontrolled wine room.

This is in addition to an elevator serving all levels and a car vault that allows for the storage of multiple vehicles. Thirty percent of the newly constructed home’s power comes courtesy rooftop solar panels, and water-resistant membranes are embedded in every level, and more than 90 percent of the home’s lights are LEDs.

An Everpure water filtration and purification system ensures crystal clear drinking water throughout the home, while a greywater harvesting cistern irrigates the landscape and fills the toilets. 2646 Union St. is well prepared for the rolling blackouts and brownouts that are becoming more common in the Bay Area these days. The home includes a 20 kilowatt backup generator that keeps major systems running when the power goes down, while Energy Star appliances require minimal power to operate their best.

Of course, Troon Pacific doesn’t cut corners when it comes to indulgences, as evidenced by the bespoke finishes radiating throughout the home. The chef’s kitchen enjoys slab counters and an Italian-made Boffi island, in addition to a Gaggenau range. An outdoor kitchen and gas fire pit reside in the backyard, making it an ideal space for al fresco dining.

Naturally, the owner’s suite stands out for its unparalleled elegance. Not only does the suite host a two-sided fireplace and private deck, its spa-caliber bathroom houses a freestanding soaking tub and separate rain shower overlooking the bay.

The home’s location drops jaws as well. Perched over the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, 2646 Union St. boasts views of landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the Palace of Fine Arts, as well as natural wonders like San Francisco Bay and the Marin Headlands.

“The home’s outdoor spaces accentuate and maximize these incredible views, with a light-filled penthouse on the top floor, full-width terraces and thoughtfully placed windows,” Steele said.

Terraces jut out from the northern and southern sides of the home, routinely accessed through retractable glass walls. Glass railings ensure views are unimpeded, and a panoramic roof deck with a fire pit tops the estate.
