A sizable central foyer highlighted by Versailles-patterned hardwood floors introduces the residence. The adjacent expansive living room with a fireplace and large windows showcases panoramic views spanning the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and Russian Hill. At the northernmost point, a conservatory opens to a terrace. Adjacent, a stately library and sitting area are highly designed, featuring exceptional millwork detailing architectural columns. Expanding the use of these intimate spaces is a large terrace opening to a full experience of the cooperative’s majestically landscaped, private gardens. A gilded powder room is nearby.
Across the living room, a grand formal dining room with Bay views features a northern terrace and room for silver and china storage. Linking to the dining room is the eastern-facing kitchen with abundant storage, two sets of appliances and vast counter-space. A connecting office and breakfast area lead to a service area with laundry appliances and one of four half-baths. At the southern end of the floor plate, an ensuite guest bedroom features a northern view of Alcatraz and southern outlooks to Lafayette Park.
Occupying a significant portion of the upper level, the superb primary suite is highlighted by green park outlooks and dual ensuite baths. Two private dressing wings feature stone or marble-clad baths and large closets.
A winding staircase with decorative wrought iron railings announces the transition to the rare amenities of the lower level: a grand ballroom/family room featuring soaring ceilings highlighted by two exposures of oversized Palladian windows and a circular, western terrace. A private and exclusive gated entrance from Washington Street leads to this level, which also includes two ensuite bedrooms, fitness room, service area, laundry room, storage rooms, half-bath and a service entrance.
Rich in architectural history and legendary design, this exquisite Beaux Arts duplex view apartment presents a golden opportunity to live in one of the rarest apartments in San Francisco at one of its most sought-after residential addresses.
Architect Conrad Alfred Meussdorffer is known for turn of the 19th century San Francisco design. After the events of 1906, Meussdorffer set a new standard for luxury design with the unveiling of 2006 Washington which would go on to represent his greatest legacy to San Francisco architecture. Widely regarded as the premier cooperative building in the city, 2006 Washington shimmers with Beaux Art detail. The residency has been compared to the finest buildings in NYC, London, and Paris. Several of the 10 full-floor apartments have been published in Architectural Digest.
Designed in Meussdorffer’s signature Beaux Arts genre, the 1924 building features a grand entrance with elegantly landscaped private gardens, commanding porte cochére and an attended lobby.
