Sophisticated San Francisco Oasis

No expense was spared in the creation of this unparalleled three-bedroom residence in San Francisco’s Marina district. It boasts a living area with a sound system, blackout shades, and a gas fireplace; a primary suite with a walk-in closet and two baths; an office or media room; a rooftop deck; a wine cellar; guest quarters; gardens with a water feature, a gas firewall, and a built-in grill; and a kitchen with a La Cornue Château range featuring a French top and gas and electric ovens.

La Gentilhommière

Inspired by France’s Château de Givenchy-le-Noble and designed by the nephew of Hubert de Givenchy, this regal estate has an inimitable ambience thanks to numerous refined imported materials, including Pierre de Bourgogne limestone, 400-year-old ceiling beams, and 18th-century parquet de Versailles floors. Among the highlights are a studio above the three-car garage; a pool and pool house with an outdoor grilling area; and a Smallbone kitchen with a custom La Cornue Château range, a solid limestone sink, and radiant-heated 19th-century tile floors.

Much of the home’s 11,89-square-foot floor plan is designed for gatherings: a living room, a formal dining room with satin walls, a den with fireplace, a library, and a wood-paneled game room with a wet bar. The chef’s kitchen remains charming and convivial with its traditional cabinetry, colorful marble countertops, whimsical backsplash for the stately La Cornue range, and access to the manicured grounds.
