Cadillac Cars | Marquee Stars

 

Redeveloped and reimagined in 1998, this discrete and understated residential enclave known as the Marquee Lofts, is located in the historically significant and nationally acclaimed Don Lee Cadillac Building at 1000 Van Ness Avenue. Astonishing, exquisite and striking are just a few key words that come to mind when sights are set upon the curated elegance and style presented in this luxury loft condominium located in San Francisco. While infusing the cultural significance derived from the Italian Renaissance and Spanish Colonial styles, architects Weeks and Day were commissioned in the early 1920's by Cadillac to design their showroom and auto repair services. The result of their creative genius produced the largest and one of the most architecturally significant automobile showrooms on San Francisco's historic Auto Row. The centurian that it is, today the building offers a mix of residential, commercial and retail uses. 

Perched high above the city, Residence 805 not only presents southwestern city views through the massive sash windows stretching across an entire wall, it also bestows an executive level loft with inherent notes of SoHo style. Upon entry, oversized black slate tiles provide a formal welcome while feeding into the warm expansive reclaimed maple hardwood floors. Massive concrete columns quickly draw focus up to the soaring industrial ceiling. Open and spacious as loft living is, this home is an entertainer's dream. The chef's grade eye-catching kitchen is detailed with white veined quartz countertops complemented by stainless steel appliances and accented with gold fixtures. The main bedroom loft is raised to a level of privacy and separation while maintaining a connectivity to the living and office spaces below. Spa-like amenities and fixtures are also offered in the dual-zone bathroom. Steps away, a large walk-in closet is positioned just opposite the laundry closet housing a brand new washer and dryer. And just when you think you've seen the whole space, peek up to the secret flex space which is the perfect perch for that second sleeping loft for the occasional overnight friend, or the perfect retreat for meditation or yoga.

If storage space is a necessity, this loft is the gift that keeps on giving. An abundance of space can be found not only under the sleeping loft, but also in a private secured separate room with organized shelving on the 7th floor. All that's needed for this urban retreat to be a complete package is a dedicated parking space, a residential gym and a shared roof-top sun deck. These indispensable features are just steps away from Residence 805's front door. 

San Francisco's premier cultural center of the west is a just a stroll away where the Opera House, SF Jazz, Symphony Davies Hall and San Francisco Ballet can be found. Residence 805 is the perfect pied-a-terre home for the buyer seeking a dazzling urban respite, as well as the best stylish executive level loft any city dweller could wish for. This is flex space at its best -- the optimum place for any type of user - from empty nester to first time homebuyer.
