If you’ve ever driven across the eastern expanse of the Bay Bridge on a clear day, you know what it feels like to see a freeway transform into a majestic skyway with streams of light pouring through dozens of slender suspension cables across a long and winding road. It’s no coincidence that this incredible condominium is similarly flooded with light from above with no less than 12 skylights cast in a dramatic architectural setting. Eminent architect Caspar Mol, one of the principal designers of the Bay Bridge expansion, owned, designed and built 119 Lyon Street. Proudly set on a tree lined among the historic homes of Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, this modern wonder boasts radiant heat in bathrooms, two private decks, an open floor plan and timeless finishes throughout. Functionality is thoughtfully preserved with in-unit laundry, an electric car charging station and smart lighting. “Slow street" walkability to parks, shops, restaurants and transit complete this remarkable home.
Living at 119 Lyon Street lands you at the epicenter of three of the city’s most vibrant neighborhoods: the Haight, Buena Vista and the burgeoning Divisadero Corridor. From the swank Michelin-starred restaurant, Ju-ni, to casual drop-in dining at Souvla, the options to delight your culinary sensibilities are endless. The casual stroll to the bevy of restaurants like NOPA, Che Fico and Automat serves as a justifiable offset to an occasional decadent dessert at the end of a satisfying meal in the neighborhood.
For the foodies among us, Bi-Rite market is the grocer of foodie dreams. The bins and shelves are overflowing with the region’s more bountiful produce. Once a week, on Sundays, visit the Farmers Market, just one block away, to stock up for a nutritious and delicious farm-to-table homemade meal.
Nature walks have never been more accessible than they are from this remarkable location on Lyon Street. Frolic, explore and play in the lush vistas and landscapes of Buena Vista Park and the panhandle of Golden Gate Park -- literally just steps away. Hop on your bike and take a short 4-mile spin on the path to the ocean to enjoy a burger and a beer on the beach. The calm oasis of Golden Gate Park, with its world-class museums and infinite floral displays, is a one-of-a-kind city treasure that beckons from your front door.
Tourists still come from all around the world to check out the action on Haight Street, and they find plenty of it. Trendy boutiques like Upper Playground and Buffalo Exchange Apparel sell the some of the coolest styles; while the independent record store Amoeba offers free in-store performances for a hyper local entertainment experience.
