Midcentury fashionable San Francisco house with jaw-dropping views rapidly sells
A one-of-a-kind midcentury modern home in San Francisco designed for famed furniture designer Jules Heumann was sold after just 10 days on the market.
The prized property perched above the city with astonishing views was snapped up at full price for $3,750,000 in a cash deal.
The spectacular, trilevel beauty was custom-designed in 1965 by the San Francisco architecture firm Marquis & Stoller.
The space features vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the views that span from the Pacific Ocean and Golden Gate Bridge to Marin and the East Bay.
“This is one of the most amazing homes I have ever sold,” says listing agent Trecia Knapp, of Sotheby’s International Realty. “It is encased in original redwood in the main living room and has these sweeping views that are just stunning.”
From the interior walls of windows to the exterior decks, you can take in views from nearly every room in the 3,258-square-foot house.
The modern kitchen features a spacious dining area which opens to an outdoor courtyard. The cozy den comes with a fireplace and a deck just off the main living and dining rooms.
Upstairs, you will find a primary suite complete with a fireplace, office, sitting room, and dressing rooms. Two additional bedrooms share a bath, and there’s an exercise room that could be turned into a fourth bedroom.
In addition to being a famous furniture designer, Heumann also had a thing for cars. He served as chairman of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, a renowned car show.
“There is a three-car garage here, and one has a double bay,” Knapp says. “He put air conditioning in the garage! When you walk in, you can almost feel him tinkering. He also had a bay built under the garage so you can tinker on your cars. He even put an elevator in the home; that’s how forward – thinking hey what.”
The car collector died in 2017 at the age of 93. The sellers bought the home from Heumann’s estate in 2018.
“During COVID, their lives changed and they had to move out of town for work,” Knapp says. “They would not have left if they didn’t have to relocate for their jobs.”
The property is a standalone house in San Francisco, which makes it a coveted rarity. Plus, the locale is off the beaten path.
“It’s located in Clarendon Heights, which I would call the ‘undiscovered Gold Coast of San Francisco,'” Knapp says. “It’s a vertical house, so it captures all of the views. One of the founders of Instagram also lives on St. Germain Avenue.”
San Francisco is known for its fog, and when it rolls in, Knapp says, “The home is like being in a beautiful cocoon to keep you warm and cozy.”
