Where once stood a 875-square-foot teardown—a rickety affair sold in 2015 for a mere $1.7 million—rose a glistening 5,100-square-foot behemoth. And what a striking creature it is! Conceived by Winder Gibson Architects, the contemporary abode features walls of glass, wood paneling, and walk-out terraces on all three floors.
Boasting five beds and four and a half baths, 1783 Noe comes with an elevator, two outdoor kitchens (“This is a home design by an architect who actually loves to cook,” reads the listing), cedar siding, and patterned tile (inside and out).
The wood staircase is especially nice. No excuse spending millions of dollars on a home sans standout staircase.
“It is really distinct from the ‘latest and greatest’ modern homes we are seeing in Noe Valley these days, with a strong focus on casual livability and interesting materials and detailing.” says Winder Gibson Architects partner Geoff Gibson.
Hear, hear. Similar to the contentious Castro home on 18th Street—which, whether yay or nay, won’t be ignored—this new construction sets itself apart from the wave of wan, antiseptic new homes too popular these days. Let’s hope we see more of this, with even bolder results.
Christened “Noe Looking Glass,” 1783 Noe lands on the market asking $7.7 million.
