Architect John Maniscalco took this 1950 multifamily mid-century modern building and turned it into an open, airy and spacious residence with three distinct levels starting at ground and garden, proceeding to the sleeping level and upwards to the top level that opens to Russian Hill views of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Bay and the Marin Headlands. The view level includes the living room, dining room, deck and kitchen with sliding glass walls opening the interior to the sea breezes off the Pacific. A swarm of three-dimensional blue butterflies attached to the wall leads upwards through three living levels to the open sky. It is here where one would expect the butterflies to escape, were they not anchored securely.
Designed with imagination and sophistication with a butterfly touch of whimsey, the 4,650-square-foot, three-level home has five bedrooms, six baths with high-end materials and fixtures throughout. Each level has a purpose from the professionally designed garden anchoring the building, to the sleeping level and following the path of the butterflies, up to the living-view level.
San Francisco’s Russian Hill Butterfly House is now for sale, priced at $9.480 million.
