Pacific Heights Art House
Pacific Heights Art House (www.arthouse-sf.com)
In the heart of Pacific Heights, behind an understated facade, a spacious modern masterpiece is ready to blow your mind. Part New York loft, part traditional, this huge space (over 7,400 square feet) offers creative people plenty of flexible options for glamorous entertaining as well as cozy, intimate gatherings. It features 6 generous bedrooms and 6 luxurious bathrooms. Entirely renovated in 2006 by noted designer Riaz Taplin, and continuously updated since, the property features soaring ceilings, intimate gathering spaces and the ideal backdrop to showcase any art collection.
Walk up the front steps to the inviting atrium with its backdrop -- a massive glass-domed light well that brings light into the space and creates a sense of drama. The open main level features a chef’s Boffi kitchen as well as two living rooms separated by a dining area. Directly off the kitchen is the more informal space. Lined by a south-facing wall of floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over views of the city, it is bright and inviting during the day. At night, with its projector and full-sized movie screen, it becomes the perfect cozy spot for watching movies. On the other side of the dining area, another more formal living room is the perfect spot for intimate conversations while the film buffs are entertained just down the hall. Everyone can be on the same floor after dinner parties but there is enough space to spread out.
Up the architectural floating staircase is the private living area. Here you will find four bedrooms on the same level, as well as three luxurious bathrooms. Each bedroom features modern architectural details and fantastic light. The primary bedroom has two spacious walk in closets and a gorgeous marble bathroom with a large shower and separate soaking tub. The bedroom features an entire wall of south-facing windows overlooking the city and the garden below. Up one more flight of stairs, a sunny roof deck offers a space to take in some sun as well as city views or enjoy evening cocktails under the stars.
Downstairs, there are more surprises. For those working from home, it offers an entire lower suite where you can spread out with co-workers, host overnight guests or work out undisturbed. The lower level features a large guest bedroom with an ensuite bath and another living room accentuated with a mural by renowned artist Kalani Ware. Below this level is an office/conference room area or flexible space waiting for creative souls to configure and use in a variety of ways. The lower level, with its 20-foot ceilings and south-facing glass sliding doors, opens to a sunny landscaped garden. This space could be a perfect home office command center, an exercise area, a teen paradise or a private guest suite. It has its own tricked-out Boffi kitchen, concrete floors and walls expansive enough to showcase any art collection. You wouldn’t know it from the street, but once you are inside this house, you will be delighted by all it offers. One more surprise: the garage door opens to reveal a space with a hydraulic-powered auto lift Klaus parking system large enough to accommodate five cars.
In a world where so much is all exterior glitz with nothing to back it up, this house is a refreshing surprise. Understated and elegant from the street, you’d never know what lies behind the front door. This house is a modern masterpiece offering space, light, function, form and drama. The house also features several one-of-a-kind art pieces.The murals and friezes in the house were created especially for the sellers by iconic up-and-coming artists. These original site-specific pieces put the finishing touches on a one-of-a-kind architectural showcase that offers practical living space with an extra helping of wow. All this in the heart of Pacific Heights within walking distance of Sacramento and Fillmore Street shopping, Alta Plaza park and great schools.
The two entry friezes were created for the house by artist

The Mezzanine-level mural The Forbidden Valley of Tropical Flora was created by KALANI WARE
Kalani Ware is a contemporary visual artist from Oakland, CA, who roots in Hawai'i. He creates, experiments, and explores his creativity in color. He strives to create works that will inspire others. The variation of colors, shapes, and textures he uses not only represents the diverse and multicultural society we live in but our connection to society and each other. His current work focuses on these same ideas, sometimes incorporating people. What he loves most about abstract art is that it is subjective. Kalani hopes that people can engage, ask questions, and find happiness in his work. Everything begins as a thought for him; then, it becomes a visual sketch in his mind. Kalani’s creative process is organic and natural; he creates, revises, and reflects. Although primarily focused on abstract works, most of Kalani’s work over the years has been widely diverse, showing his creative range from painting nature landscapes to human figures.
His recent mural locations include the restaurant Good Good Culture Club in the mission, the Unity Mural in Bayshore, and the Logan apartment complex.
