On the heels of last week’s AIA sponsored modern home tour in San Francisco, 281 Chestnut has officially hit the market with a list price of $5,995,000. Designed by Leddy Maytum Stacy, and completed in 2001, the home received an AIA Honor Award in 2002.
With exposure on four sides, daylight enters the house in a variety of ways throughout the year, raking along tall walls, projecting down the central stairway, and filtering from overhead.
Tall aluminum sliding glass doors at each end of the house provide maximum access to views and cross ventilation. Exterior materials were selected to weather naturally and accentuate formal organ-ization.
It consists of a main residence, a separate legal cottage, and a total of five parking spaces. And yes, it’s sure to be the envy of every valet in Telegraph Hill (as well as many others).
