History and Modern Architecture Ignite!
Chemical Engine House 44 originally built in 1909 and served as a San Francisco firehouse until 1959. The home has recently undergone an extensive renovation and now a modern masterpiece sits behind the historic structure.
The brilliant renovation includes 4 levels of unique living space as well as an observatory tower, large wine cellar and tasting room; all designed for modern living. The open floor plan is accentuated by the center staircase/elevator atrium which is washed in sunlight from the immense skylight above.
A clever mix of modern and original details creates a home that is truly one of a kind. Upon entering through the massive original copper doors you will be captivated by the innovative floating level above. Features that make this home a standout include an impressive glass and reclaimed lumber staircase, two story family room with a wall of glass, gourmet “loft” kitchen with adjoining catering kitchen, original 4 story staircase and zinc clad doors, air conditioned bedroom levels, home spa, heated tiled floors, surround sound, roof terrace and dramatic observatory tower with 360 degree views.
