One Thousand & One California Street, one of the most beautiful Beaux Arts residential buildings in the City, was built by William Randolph Hearst in 1914. Its Nob Hill neighbors include the famed Mark Hopkins and Fairmont Hotels, Pacific Union Club, iconic Grace Cathedral and verdant Huntington Park across the way.

The firm of Butler-Armsden Architects has transformed this unique townhouse into beautifully proportioned spaces, both voluminous and intimate, appropriate to the owner's quest for comfortable daily living and easy transition from casual to elegant entertaining. In particular, the impeccably designed space in its simplicity and clean lines enhances the display of the owner's exuberant art collection of large canvases and exquisite objets d'art.

First Level

  • Guests are greeted by the doorman and enter the town home though the classic Beaux Arts lobby.
  • The light and airy ambience is immediately sensed in the ENTRY GALLERY with its impressive ceiling height and oversized skylight.
  • Floor to ceiling white lacquered display shelves house objets d'art and complement large canvases on the expansive, seamless wall spaces.
  • Beautiful European oak floors warm the interior spaces throughout.

Also on this level:

  • The designer LIBRARY with white lacquered shelves and adjoining marble BATH with shower may also serve as GUEST QUARTERS.

  • The luxurious marble MASTER BATH houses a designer tub, glass enclosed shower, double vanities and custom walnut closets for all seasons wardrobes.
