This gallery-like 3-bedroom, 3-full bath home has a vast and open floorplan and is truly a rare corner which offers elegantly proportioned rooms that are perfect for entertaining. The thoughtful interior enhancements were completed by renowned design-and-build firm Muratore using the finest materials. The home features imported marble and limestone, hardwood floors, custom cabinetry and custom millwork throughout.          
The home features a gorgeous gourmet kitchen that is open to a very large dining and living area which is perfectly suited to display large pieces of artwork.     
The striking kitchen finishes are highlighted by a large custom island topped by slabs of Calacatta marble and illuminated by exquisite Baccarat pendant light fixtures. The thoughtful design elements include a completely reconfigured dining experience that features custom cabinetry, Miele appliances, Calacatta marble backsplash and Calacatta marble footrest. The attention to every detail is evidenced by the gorgeous Waterworks fixtures and cabinet pulls and knobs from Folger & Burt.     
The dining and living areas include extensive decorative moldings, custom millwork and features a spectacular custom coffered ceiling inclusive of upgraded custom lighting and recessed audio speakers.  This dramatic space is surrounded by oversized windows on two sides that are awash in natural light and deliver captivating panoramic views of the dynamic downtown skyline including perfectly framed outlooks of iconic institutions like the Westin St. Francis and Union Square.     
Adjacent to the living room is the gorgeous sitting room, which features a Holly Hunt chandelier and a striking fireplace with a Chesneys limestone surround.  The welcoming and warm sitting room boasts custom cabinetry, wall to-wall Stark carpeting, and Phillip Jeffries wall coverings. With a large walk-in closet with custom built-ins and full-size marble spa-like master bath, the sitting room is easily convertible to a second master suite, media room, den or office via the custom folding door enclosure.     
The master suite is thoughtfully located, down a private corridor behind two custom double doors, opposite the living and dining areas and is the perfect private retreat: spacious, bright and serene. Features of the master suite include wall-to-wall Stark carpeting, upgraded recessed lighting, custom Holly Hunt blackout draperies, and a gracious walk-in closet featuring custom built-ins.     
This home includes 3 spa-like full-size, well-appointed bathrooms, all of which are finished in imported marble and feature deep soaking tubs and dual vanities.

Bryant Kowalczyk

Bryant Kowalczyk has been selling San Francisco’s premier luxury homes and condominiums since 1999. With unparalleled experience and expertise in the Marina, Cow Hollow, Pacific Heights, Presidio Heights, South Beach and Financial District markets, Bryant Kowalczyk has had unprecedented access and a proven track record working directly with San Francisco’s top investors, architects and real estate developers.           
In 2016 Bryant sold the #1 residential home sale in San Francisco while representing the buyer on the acquisition of 2250 Vallejo. Originally priced for $28,000,000, 2250 Vallejo ultimately recorded after months of negotiations for $21,800,000, making it the top home sale in San Francisco for the year.           
While Bryant’s proven re-sale track record consistently ranks him amongst the top 1% of all SF Brokers, Bryant’s real estate development background began by working as the sales and/or marketing manager at many of San Francisco’s most prestigious residential high-rises developments. Bryant has worked on and marketed some of the most exclusive luxury high-rises in San Francisco including the St. Regis Residences, the Ritz-Carlton Residences, The Towers at Embarcadero South, the Brannan, 200 Brannan, Milennium Tower, 88 King Street and the Yerba Buena Lofts… to name a few.    
Bryant’s sales, organizational, communication and negotiating skills have been finely honed through more than 1,500 successful transactions. He has worked with a wide range of affluent clients and closed some of the most complex residential transactions recorded in San Francisco. Bryant’s clientele list is a veritable who’s who of the bay area and includes real estate developers, politicians, tech entrepreneurs, celebrities, professional athletes, vineyard owners, biotech pioneers, music producers, and venture capital legends.           
Bryant is intimately familiar with all aspects of the sales and purchasing processes from initiating an offer, to negotiating the price, facilitating the escrow coordination, ensuring a successful appraisal, securing the appropriate financing, and closing the transaction as seamlessly as possible.           
In 2013 Bryant saw the value in joining Gomez & Patton, two of his long-time mentors, to form GPK Luxury Real Estate. The partnership allowed him to better service his luxury clients from the new South of Market condominiums to the more established North of Market single-family homes and cooperatives.
