Duboce Triangle – Amazing Loft and Income
This is a two-story architecturally designed home with two bedrooms, three full baths, formal living room and dining area, gourmet kitchen, office with private patio and fountain, custom glass enclosed spiral staircase, library, two fireplaces, enclosed interior patio, two sun decks, exterior shower, dressing room, utility/laundry room, two-story working artists studio, 800 amps electric service, storage, two car plush side-by-side garage, in addition a 50×125 plus mezzanine working artists studio space with separate entrance and industrial roll up door.
This residence was designed by noted architect Ira Kurlander along with the artist/owner and can only be describe as spectacular with virtually every room and component a piece of art unto itself. Originally built as a furniture warehouse in 1919 with sixteen-foot tall concrete walls surrounding the entire 100×125 lot, two curved redwood ceilings soar up to 20 feet from the concrete floors, and two large garage doors, this space was redesigned as a private residence with working artists studios and completed over a two year period in 1984.
Published in four architectural magazines, the home makes one pause at each turn. Located in the residential neighborhood of Duboce Triangle, the handsome ivy covered concrete exterior offers no hint to the treasures within. The entrance is highlighted by two story German glass walls and its own electric roll up gate. The entry lobby with polished concrete floors increases in width over its sixty foot length and leads to the dramatic fifty by thirty foot living room with soaring twenty foot tall ceilings. At every turn, a piece of art appears: the sixteen-foot tall fireplace with its geodesic design and custom hearth, the soaring ceilings with clerestory skylights, the unique 20 foot plus tall glass wall opening to the interior black granite courtyard, the turquoise triangle wall in the courtyard leading to the two roof decks, the state of the art ?presentation? kitchen, and the glass enclosed circular staircase leading to the master suite upstairs.
Venturing out of the living area to the open courtyard, one is attracted to a pink door which leads to a private office with its own inner courtyard. This glass-enclosed courtyard (with fountain and marble floor) affords the office a serene outlook. Upon reentering the living room, a large suite/bedroom, known as the blue room is accessible. This 2nd bedroom has a wood burning fireplace with its own full bath, a private garden and skylight.
