A sanctuary of modern luxury! This 4-bedroom, 4-bath Noe Valley home has been thoughtfully redesigned by Architects Ross Levy and Kevin Hackett with no details spared. At first glance, the Craftsman-style facade gives nod to the city's architectural past while the home’s modern interior and rear deliver an unparalleled take on openness and airiness, artfully blending glass-and-steel with softer textures throughout. The open-living level spans the entire top floor. The great room’s twelve-foot+ ceiling is punctuated by massive old-growth timber beams. This expansive area opens to a lush valley view and an IPE hardwood terrace through oversized, south-facing NanaWall sliders.
The innovative kitchen is complemented with a brilliant floral mural by beloved Bay Area artist Jet Martinez, and is outfitted with top of the line stainless steel Miele appliances and a center island wrapped in walnut and blackened steel. All cabinetry (kitchen, baths, closets) was custom, locally built by Kenwood Carpentry.
A suspended steel and walnut staircase leads up to the rooftop deck through a dramatic retractable Rollomatic skylight. Atop the deck are built-in IPE hardwood benches, a concrete gas fire pit, a secluded teak spa tub and a jaw-dropping panoramic view of the Bay.
A walnut staircase leads down to the middle level, featuring integrated LED under-tread lighting and a large mural by local artist Nathan Richard Phelps. On the middle level, the serene Master Suite inhabits its own wing of the house, featuring custom built-ins, an en-suite bathroom with a custom concrete dual-vanity, walk-in shower, honed granite tub, and a show-stopping walk-in-closet. Also on the Master level is a bedroom with an adjacent split bath.
Inlaid walnut/concrete stairs with integrated LED tread lighting lead to the garden level, which features two more bedrooms, a full bath with Moroccan tile, a walk-in shower nestled up to a plant-filled lightwell, a laundry, and a control systems room. The floor-to-ceiling NanaWall at the back of the garden level retracts completely, for seamless indoor/outdoor living.
The deep multi-level backyard has been fully landscaped to accommodate gatherings for all ages: a large deck for lounging and a children’s area with a custom-built playhouse, climbing wall, slide, and crawling tunnel. Intentionally curated, drought-tolerant plants are on an automatic watering system.
Additional features include rich, wide-plank walnut floors, radiant floor heating, a Savant Smart Home System, audiophile-grade built-in 22-speaker array by California Audio Technology (7.4 surround in great room), integrated heating and Lutron Homeworks lighting controls, Nest smoke alarms, LifeBreath whole-house HEPA air filtration system, HD security cameras, an oversized one-car garage accessible through an entry lounge, and a reading nook/guest loft nestled above the top-floor office.
Conveniently located within walking distance to parks, public transportation, tech buses, easy access to the peninsula, and plentiful shops, markets, and restaurants. In a prime Noe Valley location, 457 Valley marries modern sensibilities with organic textures and a human touch; it brings the outdoors in, while offering privacy and ideal south-facing exposure. A rare find in a prime Noe Valley location.
