Built in 1927 at Clay and Jones Streets in tony Nob Hill, and designed by Albert Larsen (the mind behind the Hamilton on O’Farrell), this towering residential structure was one of San Francisco’s first Art Deco skyscrapers.
You wouldn’t know it by first looking at the boldly contemporary interiors inside this top-floor pad, which lands on the market this week for a cool $16 million. Closer inspection, though, reveals some hints at the past, notably the oversized Parisian clock in the foyer.
Featuring four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 3,897 square feet, the penthouse at 1250 Jones is a full-floor unit sprawling across two floors. It comes with a dedicated elevator, outdoor terrace, formal dining room, mirrored wet-bar, textured wall coverings, slabs of black-and-white stone adorning the kitchen walls, media/library room, and more.
The most interesting aspect of this recently renovated home is the design element in the living room, a curved and raised carpeted moment that gives the illusion of a conversation pit. A curious aesthetic direction that, oddly enough, is itself a conversation starer.
