Imagine waking up every morning to serene views of the Golden Gate Bridge and beyond. A dreamy home for sale in San Francisco is the perfect haven for peace and quiet or adventures that await right outside the door.
Juxtaposed against San Francisco’s most iconic backdrop, the newly constructed home at 435 Marina Boulevard is the most expensive home ever listed in the city’s Marina District with an asking price of $25 million.
A showpiece of modern coastal design, the home was built by Manouch Moshayedi, a competitive sailor and real estate developer. It spans over more than 7,030 square feet of living space, including a 360-degree-view rooftop deck.
Sophistication and craftsmanship are coupled with front-row views of the Bay from the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz and beyond from each level of the residence.
“No homes are in front of it, just boats and water,” said Compass listing agent Camilla Moshayedi, who explained that the owner chose the Marina neighborhood because of its calming water views and proximity to St. Francis Yacht Club. He won the prestigious Barn Door trophy during a Transpacific Yacht Race and broke the record for finish time during the Pacific Cup Regatta with his 100-foot boat Rio100.
“The owner and his wife built the home for their personal use,” said Moshayedi. “The project has been about six years in the making. A couple of years ago, they realized that with several grandchildren down in Orange County where they live, that they were not going to be spending enough time in San Francisco to use the home as much as they would like. They decided that they would sell it once they had completed it.”
The rare offering on an extra-wide 50-foot lot is fully detached, allowing for natural light from windows and eight skylights to pour in from all sides.
Walls of sliding glass doors and an interior garden with a tree and plants provide seamless transitions between the indoors and outdoors. The energy-efficient home includes rooftop solar panels and natural cooling.
“As soon as you walk in the home, you can see all the way from the front to the backyard,” said Moshayedi. “You just see trees, beautiful limestone floors and a lot of the light coming in. So it has the air of a Southern California home. Some visitors even said that it seems like a Miami or Palm Beach type home because of its very unusual look and indoor-outdoor feel.”
The striking architectural design is anchored by a floating wood staircase, entryway garden, a three-story glass curtain wall along the eastern facade, and stone on north and south facades.
Lofty ceilings, incredible volume and expansive views highlight the main level, which provides the ultimate entertaining experience. An open layout seamlessly connects the living room, dining area, kitchen, family room and multiple decks, offering uninterrupted flow and flexibility.
The kitchen is crafted with walnut cabinetry and marble island, countertops and backsplash. Professional-grade appliances, including three dishwashers and a finishing oven, are the heart and soul of the kitchen. A walk-in pantry keeps food items organized and on hand. The kitchen leads to a deck with a barbecue area and built-in heaters. Pocket doors slide to separate the kitchen from the dining area for privacy.
The primary bedroom suite exudes luxury with dual bathrooms, including a steam shower and freestanding bathtub, dual walk-in closets and deck. Four additional bedroom suites have spacious closets, bathrooms with slab shower walls, custom cabinetry, burnished Venetian plaster and outdoor spaces.
The roof deck is the crown jewel of the home, dramatically showcasing sweeping 360-degree views of San Francisco, the Bay, Marin and the East Bay. Carefully chosen details such as an outdoor kitchen, speakers, lighting and dedicated elevator access make this the ideal place for conversation and cocktails.
“It’s beautiful at sunset looking east,” said Moshayedi. “You feel as though you can reach out and touch the bridge or dip your toes in the water. It’s just so close and unobstructed.”
The lower-level lounge space transforms into a refined theater experience with a projection screen, pocket doors and bar. Limestone flooring extends from the inside to the landscaped backyard, which includes a fire pit, outdoor kitchen, lawn and pebble wall. An office on this level with Marina Green views makes working from home more calming and productive.
Additional amenities include a spacious elevator to all levels, air conditioning, radiant heating, two laundry rooms, three outdoor barbecue areas, multiple skylights and custom automatic window coverings.
A smart home system includes video surveillance and security. The four-car garage is equipped with electric vehicle chargers. Additional parking space is in the driveway.
