40 Montclair Terrace is a spectacular 5 bedroom 3 and hald bath single family estate-caliber residence. One of the most coveted addresses in San Francisco. Montclair Terrace is a beautiful private lane just off the iconic Lombard crooked street. Rarely do homes in this area of Russian Hill come on the market. There isn't a more quintessential San Francisco location with its beautiful views, easy access to several thriving neighborhoods and its proximity to one of San Francisco’s most celebrated landmarks. This generously proportioned home has an ideal open floor plan for entertaining and a practical balance of public and private spaces. The breathtaking bay views can be enjoyed from the nearly all of the common area spaces including the living room, family room, kitchen and dining room. The formal entry level is currently used as a casual family room with media center and office nook. On this level is also a bedroom with a walk out deck. This deck is also accessible from the family room. There is a full bathroom on this floor. Downstairs are three more bedrooms, a full bath and cozy, library style foyer. Upstairs maximizes the views in a glass-walled living room with large wood burning fireplace, French doors leading out to a deck and a spiral staircase to the roof where the views are even more jaw dropping! The gourmet chef’s kitchen is open to the dining room but also private for hosting guests. Top of the line appliances, sub zero fridge and custom cabinetry make it a very inviting cooking space. The dining room is surrounded by windows which make you feel like you are floating out into the view. The master bedroom with its own private balcony, sitting area, walk in closets, and spa-like master bathroom with separate tub, double vanity and bidet give you the feeling of a luxury hotel suite. The rear garden is full of lush, mature plant life that creates a private, natural retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.
