A view of the sparkling bay stops you in your tracks as you look through the glass panels of the front door and step into this stunning 4+ bedroom, 3.5 bath, custom-built Mediterranean home. The San Francisco Bay gently washes against the shore on the north side of the home, giving 12 Callan Place one of the most breathtaking views in the entire Bay Area. With 3,876 square feet, this contemporary Mediterranean is simultaneously expansive and cozy, a mastery of livable luxury.
Upon entering the house, you’re greeted by soaring ceilings, architectural columns and a nearly 18 foot high ‘glass wall’ that captures a vista of water, sky and cityscapes. The San Francisco Bay envelops the house and is enhanced by the view of the Bay Bridge and the skylines of both San Francisco and Oakland. Motor controlled shades on the upper windows shield the afternoon sun, when necessary. The main floor features the great room, eat-in kitchen, dining room, laundry room/butler’s pantry, an elegant half bath, complete with columns, and an executive office. Water views are prominent from all the first floor rooms as well as the upstairs landing and master suite.
After taking in the grandeur of the great room, proceed to the chef’s kitchen where you’ll find a plethora of modern luxury amenities–granite counters, a large center island, multiple sinks, a wet bar with wine fridge, plus an array of built-in appliances including two ovens, microwave, two dishwashers, a six-burner gas range, and a large side by side refrigerator/freezer.
The main floor office continues the classic design of this home with rich wood paneling, crown molding, built-in desk, built-in cabinets and bookshelves, matching plantation shutters and plenty of room for a comfortable lounge chair or two.
Make your way up a custom curved staircase to the upper level of the home, which features a large master suite with wet bar, fridge, built-in microwave, fireplace and a wall of built-in cabinets and drawers. Enjoy a panoramic view of San Francisco and the bay in the daytime or the Bay Bridge and city lights at night from this impressive master bedroom. The suite includes a seating area in front of a large picture window for relaxing and enjoying the changing skyscapes, sunsets and birds as they soar over the bay. An expansive walk-in closet is adjacent to the bedroom, with enough space to accommodate even the most robust wardrobes. The closet includes built in drawers, a dropdown ironing board and shoe shelves. The master bath features an oversized jetted tub, large steam shower, and skylights.
The second floor includes a second bedroom, complete with en suite bath. A large third bedroom with walk-in shower adjoins a sizable room for use as an office, den, exercise room, playroom, or fourth bedroom.
Completed in 1994 on a 5,202 square foot lot on a private drive, 12 Callan Place is a custom home in every way–distinctive style, solid construction, radiant floor heating, a central vacuum system, and thoughtfully designed architectural elements. The three-car garage with internal access, built-in cabinets and workbench completes the scope of this one-of-a-kind bay front home.
With convenient access to the Harbor Bay ferry, you can enjoy all that San Francisco has to offer without sacrificing the space and beauty found on Bay Farm Island. Experience luxury and livability in this dazzling waterfront home.
