Video Tour


Overview:  This new, custom-built view home was masterfully designed and engineered to achieve the highest possible Green rating, a LEED® Platinum (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification by the US Green Building Council (USGBC). Through the brilliant collaboration of EAG Studio, Extol Construction, and developer Devon Johnson, this exceptional home provides a unique blend of the latest in green engineering, technology and design with luxurious modern finishes and an open plan which optimizes natural light and the indoor-outdoor lifestyle so popular today. Efficient green design and the use of sustainable natural resources create a healthy living environment that yields personal, social, and economic benefits that leave you feeling good on every level.

A coveted site near the crest of the Collingwood hill provides the home with dramatic views of the city’s ever-changing skyline – and sky. This exquisite home combines modern minimalist architecture with state-of-the-art amenities. Spanning 3 levels, the home consists of:  5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths (with 3 bedrooms ensuite on the upper floor), media room, gym, flexible use 2-room guest suite, an open main level floor plan, 4 distinct outdoor living areas and 2-car independent parking.  The home tastefully combines sustainable luxury materials and the most advanced energy efficient technology; sustainability of natural resources, well-being, and integrated green design are the hallmarks of this home.  

Main Level: The front door opens to the main living level and a dramatic vista unfolds from the living room to the dining room and through the kitchen-great room to the sunny deck and garden beyond. The living room is an expansive entertaining space with stunning downtown views.  It adjoins the dining room, equipped with custom-built cabinetry and a marble-faced, 3-sided, floating fireplace also enjoyed by the kitchen-great room. 

The gourmet kitchen and great room share a wall of retractable glass doors which open directly to the sunny deck with outdoor kitchen and landscaped garden beyond – the perfect floorplan for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.  The striking kitchen is fitted with Quartz countertops, an artisan-designed, Marin bay laurel wood-slab island with waterfall edge, Miele and Thermador appliances, and a large pantry.

The sleek, German-engineered Leicht cabinetry and hardware with automated upper cabinets are both practical and beautiful. A discreet powder room completes this level.  Throughout the home are soaring 10’ ceilings (9.5’ on the top floor), LED recessed and ceiling lighting, custom recessed cabinetry and trim work, and antique white European oak floors (FSC Certified) with radiant heat. This exquisitely designed home has a minimalist style yet feels warm and welcoming.

Upper Level: The glass-enclosed, sculptural central staircase is brilliantly illuminated by a large skylight which provides natural daylight to the core of the home. LED step lighting adds convenience and drama at night.   An additional operable skylight provides natural light, fresh air, and cooling to the home. The upper level features 3 beautifully appointed, ensuite bedrooms.  Spectacular views of San Francisco’s skyline are the focal point of the luxurious master suite that opens to its own view deck ideal for a morning cup of coffee or casual lounging.  The gorgeous master bath showcases a free-standing tub, porcelain dual sinks, and abundant storage. Superb downtown views are the highlight of the glass-enclosed, stall steam shower with a floating quartz bench – the perfect accoutrement for a relaxing steam. A large walk-in closet/dressing room completes this enviable suite. There are two additional bedrooms overlooking the garden; each one features a beautiful ensuite bath finished in quartz. A full-size laundry room with sink is conveniently located on the bedroom level (with an additional stackable unit on the main level).  Additionally, inside the hall linen closet, a well-positioned, built-in charging port relocates potentially noisy electronics from the sleeping rooms. 

Roof Deck: The central staircase leads to the concrete-tiled roof deck with breathtaking 360-degree views spanning from Twin Peaks, to downtown and the east bay. Clear glass railings ensure a view whether standing or seated. Roof-top solar panels are neatly hidden from view.  The outdoor kitchen features Basaltina counters, stainless cabinets and a built-in BBQ and sink.  A built-in heat lamp and multiple dining and lounging areas make this deck perfect for entertaining on a large or intimate scale.

The Lower level was meticulously designed for daily comfort and ease of living. Inside the garage, glass doors showcase impeccable systems and reveal that the details behind the walls are just as important as what one sees.  The garage opens directly to the home via a mud-room with a built-in bench and storage cabinets.  Beyond is a flexible space which may be used as a gym, playroom, or natural wine cellar.  The large media room is wired with 5.1 surround sound and opens through a pocket door to a flex space which may be used as an office, bedroom or sitting room for the adjacent au pair suite or guest room.  A spectacular ‘living wall’ creates a tranquil focal point for the lower level.  The exterior staircase accesses the rear yard which is uniquely framed by a ‘live edge’ fence made of reclaimed lumber used in the construction of the SF Transbay Terminal.  The level yard is framed by drought-tolerant, native plants that are irrigated by captured rain water.   A fire pit on the patio creates a relaxing gathering area and stairs leading to the upper deck and the home’s main living level create a perfect flow for entertaining.

GREEN Design

“The home was designed to balance aesthetic beauty, practical features and efficient environmental design to create a compelling contemporary urban home.”  - Devon P. Johnson, Developer

LEED Certification has the following benefits:

  • Healthier for the Buyer.     Better for you and your health (low VOC paints & stains, fresher air – garage exhaust fans, radiant heating, designed to minimize mold).
  • Lower Cost to Operate.       Uses less energy and generates its own energy (water conserving fixtures, low usage electrical appliances, PV solar generation, captured rain water recycling).
  • Better Built.       LEED homes are more carefully thought out to meet strict design criteria (designed to avoid water intrusion and mold, using healthier materials, energy conscious).
  • Better for the Environment.       Uses less energy and reduces greenhouse gasses to benefit the environment (uses less natural gas, uses less electricity, generates electricity, cool roof generates less heat).

Devon P. Johnson 

Devon Johnson has a passion for San Francisco and building green homes. He focuses on in-fill development of single family homes to transform older fading properties into new contemporary green homes with LEED certifications. The homes built are healthier to live in, are lower cost to operate and have a minimal impact on the environment. Green homes can be quirky and lack a contemporary flair – Devon and his team members focus on completely integrating green technology into the home so that it is part of the function and design of the home and not an afterthought. Devon believes that it is an obligation that builders design new construction to reduce energy and water usage to reduce the impact to the environment as they will be the homes that survive into the next century.
