690 Market Street #1704
This exquisitely modern and extraordinarily rare Ritz Carlton Residence was painstakingly crafted with attention to detail and incredible functionality across every square inch of its surface. Culminating nearly three years of design, craftwork and installation, this residence was taken down to its shell and recreated to meet the exacting standards of its designer-owner and the refined standards of an equally discerning future buyer.
Encompassing nearly 2,000 square feet and showcasing an array of beautiful, deep views through the city and to the bay and beyond, this residence was designed to welcome the abundant natural light and to celebrate the night. The entertaining spaces were conceived to feel separate yet stay graciously open to each other, making guests feel at once comfortable and intimate in a small conversation or open and playful when hosting larger gatherings and events. Extraordinarily high ceilings unique to this transitional floor were maximized with floating drop panels of various heights to create a dramatic balance of airiness, subtle reflections of light and harbors for concealed ducting and lighting invisible to the eye.
The incredible master bedroom is unparalleled in its expanse and modern elegance, providing gracious window seating, open floor lounging area, view exposure and translucent pass- through to the inviting yet stunningly appointed master bathroom. One only needs to walk through the bath’s oversized, self-closing glass door to experience the abundant elements of private luxury within, including full height walls of Calacatta marble, elegant private commode and floating modern soaking tub, perfectly set to take in views out and beyond the master bedroom. Double vanity, an exquisite showering stall and an elegant dressing and closet area are just mere highlights of this suite.
An amply sized, en-suite 2nd bedroom set down the hall is perfect for guests or for a full sized home office with no less attention to detail and finish….along with the third full bath, equally impressive with a radiantly lit stone counter and dazzling pendant light.
With a nod to those who desire the ultimate control over their entertaining environment and mood, the span of the residence is managed by a smart Savant system remotely controlling from smart phone or tablet every recessed light, all three television systems and the complete sound system throughout the home. The entire space was also designed for a clean and modern, but warm and inviting tone with no exposed hardware on the cabinetry but easily accessible, operable and abundant storage space. A list of the refined elements and features throughout this residence follow below.

From the moment one walks through the door, the level of attention to personal service, handling of resident requests and problem solving is unparalleled…and done so with plenty of professional finesse and a smile.
