3 Beds 3 Baths 2,410 Sq.Ft.
Tucked away on a quaint alleyway in one of Russian Hill’s best spots is 22 Moore Place a modern masterpiece with an exhaustive list of features and amenities. This three-story single-family home was designed by San Francisco-based MacCracken Architects and was constructed with two steel moment frames.
Boasting 3 or 4 bedrooms (depending on how you would like to configure the versatile floorplan) and 3 full baths, this dramatic residence exudes style, elegance, and fine craftsmanship around every turn. Many modern residences can feel cold, stark, and uninviting, but the skilled architects and developers of 22 Moore Place were able to create a warm, inviting atmosphere thanks to well-scaled rooms and top-of-the-line materials.
The open living, dining, kitchen entertainment space is located on the top floor to maximize natural light and take advantage of sweeping views. The kitchen is anchored by a Carrara marble island with a waterfall edge, which features ample breakfast-bar seating, perfect for casual meals or surfing your laptop with a cup of coffee. A gas-fired Wolf range is the centerpiece and has a hidden ventilation system integrated into the custom, two-toned oak cabinetry. Led strips are mounted to the bottom of the cabinets and the drawers feature a soft-close mechanism. Hidden in the cabinetry you’ll find a gorgeous Thermador refrigerator and on the island, dishwasher, sink with disposal and instantly filtered hot water. A book-marked marble backsplash adds a touch of class and custom pendants hang from above. Storage space for pantry items and appliances abounds.
The dining room is adjacent and can accommodate 6-person dining tables. A deck is located just off the dining area and is perfect for a Barbecue grill. The deck contains a spiral staircase, which leads to the amazing oversized roof deck. From this perch, you can spot all types of landmarks that remind you you are in the heart of world-class San Francisco! City Hall, Twin Peaks, Sutro Tower, Nob Hill, Pacific Heights, Cow Hollow these are just some of the sights you’ll see from the roof. At night, lights twinkle and perimeter lighting around the base of the deck provides ambiance. The roof deck can accommodate both outdoor dining and living areas it’s that large! The deck is also pre-plumbed for an outdoor kitchen should the new owner want to build one out (hot/cold water, drain line, gas line, and electrical). The deck also receives fantastic sunlight due to its orientation.
Descending to the middle level of this fine residence you will find the master suite, which is tucked away at the rear of the building for maximum privacy. The master has a built-in headboard that accommodates an Eastern King bed. The built-in has steel, glass, and wood accents, and provides storage as well as grommets on the side tables to drop cords through (for neatly charging your devices). The master bath is luxurious and features gorgeous tile-work, a double vanity, and glass partition for the water closet. The stall shower is generously sized and has floor-to-ceiling teal-colored tiles, a beautiful touch. The master closet is conveniently located and features built-ins, including a remote-controlled motorized hanging rack. Just off the master is a step-out deck for fresh air!
The middle floor also contains a large second bedroom with a walk-in closet, a dedicated home office, and a large linen closet in the hallway.
Located on the lower floor of the residence is a huge media/family room. This space could double as a secondary master suite as it has a closet and en-suite bathroom. If an additional bedroom is not needed, space is perfect for a home theatre/family room setup. Hardwoods run up the wall to add warmth and a built-in is mounted for storage.
The lower half features a large storage/coat closet, media closet, laundry room (Samsung washer/dryer included), mechanical room, and a large bonus room that is perfect for whatever hobby you fancy! This space could be built out as a custom wine cellar, art/music studio, home gym, or serve as additional storage.
Radiant heat serves all levels and three Nest thermostats provide control, whether it be from a wall unit or your cellular phone. A Doorbird intercom system is located at the front door, so you can be notified anytime someone arrives no matter where you are in the world. A keyed parcel box is also located at the front door. The garage can accommodate one large vehicle or two smaller ones and has an Electric vehicle charger for convenience. The garage features an automatic door with a remote opener and provides interior access to the home.
Aesthetically, 22 Moore Place is a true work of art, clever design, and superb detailing. Exposed steel beams anchor the four corners of the building. Custom steel guardrails were designed and milled for the home’s impressive staircase, and acid-etched glass mounted to the sides. Oak hardwoods run throughout and in some locations, climb the walls or ceilings to warm up the spaces. This results in a truly cozy residence despite the clean, modern lines, a very tough feat to pull off.
The home has a huge list of features, including integrated speakers, Ipe decking, new Blomberg dual-paned sliding windows, dual-flush toilets, custom tilework, nearly 11’ ceilings, Lutron dimmers for lights, and tankless hot water. Recesses located above each window were created so the new owner can install motorized shades of their liking.
From the curb, the home is striking and impressive. Less than one block away is the heart of Hyde Street, boasting the Original Swensen’s Ice Cream, Union Larder Wine Bar, Za Pizza, Elephant Sushi, and many more. A corner market is conveniently located and tree-lined Hyde features one of SF’s famous cable-car lines. Hop one of the cable cars to Union Square for endless shopping or walk down a block and a half to Polk Street. Polk offers many of the neighborhood’s finest shopping, dining, and nightlife options. Gyms and essentials also dot the Polk Corridor. Union Street runs down the hill into the heart of Cow Hollow and also has some of the city’s best lifestyle amenities. The home is steps to San Francisco’s northern waterfront, which includes Fort Mason, the Marina Green, Crissy Field, and Fisherman’s Wharf. Whether it's enjoying the perks of urban living or athletic/leisurely activities by the waterfront, this is a spectacular location offering endless possibilities.
