Property Description

Built in 1933, this stunning Bauhaus-inspired home was designed for the family of well-known composer and pianist Henry Cowell by the renowned master architectural firm Morrow & Morrow a few years after Irving Morrow designed the architectural components of the Golden Gate Bridge. This architecturally significant home has been designated Landmark No. 270 by the SF Planning Commission. While keeping its architectural integrity intact, the redwood plank-clad home has been thoughtfully updated throughout and boasts an impressive floor plan with large floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the interior with natural light and provide breathtaking views of mature trees, hills, and the ocean. Spanning four levels and 3,570 square feet, the home features five spacious bedrooms and four remodeled bathrooms. The main level showcases a gourmet kitchen, large living/dining area with custom cabinetry and original tiled fireplace, plus a study and remodeled bathroom. This home is complete with beautiful mahogany floors, built-in cabinets and bookcases, 2-car parking, a large rear yard, and an exceptional roof deck with expansive, spectacular views.
