Commandingly sited atop the two highest floors of the Clay Jones on Nob Hill, this remarkable Penthouse commands 360-degrees of multiple-county, four-bridge views of virtually every famous landmark in San Francisco. Following its multi-year restoration, the four bedroom, four bathroom Penthouse on two levels is a thoroughly modern setting that respects its Art Deco heritage, equally ideal as an intimate city home and for big-scale entertaining on one of the City’s largest private view terraces.

Ascending from the elegant and attended boutique lobby, a keyed elevator opens directly into the Penthouse Foyer, where an oversized, vintage, Parisian clock still keeps perfect time. Steps ahead is the picturesque Living Room with oversized windows providing three exposures. One of San Francisco’s most dramatic private spaces, the Penthouse Living Room spans the width of the building to capture the views of the Downtown skyline, North Bay icons and East Bay & Peninsula counties. Nearby, a mirrored wet-bar fuels entertaining.

The Formal Dining Room is accented by textured wallcoverings and bespoke lighting fixtures reminiscent of the era in which the building was erected. A big picture window features southern views that dazzle by night. A sophisticated Kitchen features luxe appliances, dramatic full slabs of black-and-white stone and ample storage.

Tucked away behind a handsome staircase, the marvelous Master Suite is an elegant retreat unto itself, with sweeping, panoramic views of the North Bay and Marin from the Bedroom and ensuite Bath. At the opposite stop of the Penthouse is the Library/Media Room, a handsome wood-paneled Art Deco aerie, an ideal put to watch the sun set behind the Golden Gate Bridge. The Main Level includes two additional Bedrooms and a big Laundry Room.

Ascending the staircase of steel and glass, a comfortable Lounge with a mirrored wet bar and wine storage opens to one of largest private view terraces in San Francisco. Extending the full width of the building high above Nob Hill, its iconic views of every major landmark are unforgettable and poised as the impressive backdrop to big-scale entertaining. A big corner bedroom and adjacent bath share this level. Amenities of the Penthouse include air conditioning and two deeded parking spaces in the building’s secure garage.

Built in 1927 at the intersection of Clay and Jones Streets to the designs of society architect Albert Larsen, the Clay Jones was San Francisco’s first Art Deco skyscraper, an innovative luxury apartment building perched at the highest point on Nob Hill and echoing contemporaneous design trends in New York and Europe. One of the most romantic locations in the world, Nob Hill has been at the center of San Francisco’s social, political and economic history for well over a hundred years, and a neighborhood that remains elegantly vibrant today.

The pièce de résistance of the finest condominium building in one of the world’s most beloved and dynamic cities, the Clay Jones Penthouse is an unparalleled opportunity to own one of the world’s real estate crown jewels.
