Elegant, tech-savvy and home to postcard vistas of the Golden Gate Bridge, Palace of Fine Arts and Alcatraz from multiple levels, 2833 Vallejo St.offers a definitive example of contemporary, luxury living in one of San Francisco’s most celebrated neighborhoods.

“Perhaps the most valuable aspects of the property are the views,” said Ana T.L. Dierkhising of Compass, who is co-listing the sleek, urban five-story residence in Pacific Heights with Val Steele for $19 million. “And the unique design by Edmonds & Lee Architects is unapologetically modern. The most dramatic floor of the property is the living level, which has unparalleled views and an open floor plan.”

Steele echoes Dierkhising’s emphasis of the four-bedroom’s stellar vistas and refined architectural aesthetic.

“You see the Golden Gate Bridge, the Palace of Fine Arts and Alcatraz from the living level and master suite,” Steele said. “And when you get to the roof terrace these views are only enhanced.”

Steele also praised the work done by Edmonds & Lee Architects, who thoughtfully planned the new facade to match the context of its surroundings.

“I know they are extremely proud of the facade and how well it integrates into the row of homes on Vallejo Street,” Steele said. “The bright sweep of this living-dining-gallery level will leave you more than a little breathless.”

La Cantina sliding glass walls frame large swaths of San Francisco Bay and iconic landmarks. The main level’s open floor plan is defined by a chef’s kitchen equipped with custom Boffi cabinetry and Miele appliances.

The kitchen revolves around a 14-foot Carrera marble island with sculpted beveled edges, which rests beneath a skylight. Custom Belgian midnight ash millwork spans the western wall on this level and is equipped with the Arakawa art hanging system, while the Moooi chandelier in the dining area designed by Marcel Wanders lends a steampunk aesthetic.

“Even the powder room is a showpiece, with its mirrored ceiling, freestanding sculptural sink and Spanish Negro Marquina marble slab wall,” Steele said.

The architectural staircase standing beside the dining area ascends to the home’s roof deck, accessed through a retractable Rollamatic skylight. A 200-square-foot roof deck overlooking the full span of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Palace of Fine Arts, Angel Island and Alcatraz crowns the modernized residence.

The serene and sophisticate master suite boasts floor-to-ceiling windows with dramatic views. This impressive suite hosts a spa bathroom with a two-person soaking tub and freestanding rain shower, each ideally positioned to soak up the unforgettable views. In addition to a walk-in closet, the suite also includes its own laundry area. The bedroom level also offers a pair of en suite bedrooms on the southern side spilling out to a porcelain-tiled patio.

Cove lighting in the lounge merges with natural light captured from indirect sources. The glass-walled, climate-controlled wine room showcases one’s cellar collection. The guest bedroom takes in the stellar streetscape and water views through a wall of sliding glass.

A 9-foot pivoting front door opens to an inviting entry salon that’s warmed by a gas fireplace and the Belgian ash paneling. A sliding wall of frosted glass panels conceals a home office whose recessed perimeter lighting illuminates a floating ceiling.

The gym/recreation level is wired for 7.1 surround sound and opens to a private courtyard patio. The home’s elevator begins on this level that also includes a full bathroom and a wet bar with a hidden beverage center. Found beneath a living roof, the four-car garage includes electric vehicle charging stations and a pair of large storage spaces.

The refined material palette includes wide-plank white oak flooring, imported ash panels from Belgium, limestone tile, Carrera marble and La Cantina sliding glass walls. An oversized residential elevator from Cambridge Elevating connects multiple levels, as does a central staircase with glass railings and cantilevered treads.

Simplify Home Technology, Inc., integrated an array of 21st century technology into the 6,050-square-foot home. Wall-mounted i-Pads with CAT-6 wiring reside on every level, and the home includes Nest thermostats, Lutron lighting with controllable dimmers and a multiple-camera surveillance system. There’s also five Sonos Zone players paired with five Parasound amplifiers and Klipsch speakers.

Of course, location reigns supreme in real estate, and 2833 Vallejo St. enjoys prime positioning near parks, high-end retail and dining destinations.

“The location is unbeatable. The last two blocks of Vallejo Street are considered some of the most beautiful and desired blocks in the city,” Steele said. “The Golden Gate National Recreation Area — with its hiking and biking trails, tennis courts and playgrounds — is your neighbor, while Union, Chestnut and Fillmore streets are all near the home that’s close to some of San Francisco’s most prestigious independent schools.”
