Blue Bottle Coffee founder, James Freeman, and his wife, Caitlin Williams Freeman are selling their penthouse in a classic 1894 Queen Anne Victorian in San Francisco’s Alamo Square neighborhood.
The penthouse — redesigned in 2017 by architects Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, the designers behind many Blue Bottle cafes — builds on the home’s original lines, modernized with blonde woods and light surfaces. The home features an open floor plan with original stained glass and fireplace. A modern, floating wall library of laminate bookshelves and exposed plywood edges was fabricated by Tomlinson Woodworks. The chef’s kitchen enjoys natural light, with white Corian counters, custom powder-coated aluminum shelves and a WallyGro by WoolyPocket greens wall with automatic watering and lighting integration.
The residence includes four bedrooms, a library, three and a half bedrooms, and an office with its own gift-wrapping station.
Other features include a wine closet, laundry area, and a deeded garage with interior entry to the home.
The home offers easy access to the private, exclusive roof deck with outdoor lights. This home is listed for $3.85 million with Vanguard Properties.
