Noe Valley Residence
Architecturally Distinct Noe Valley Residence
Situated atop Noe Valley, 625 Duncan’s distinctive architecture was inspired by its hillside location to take advantage of stunning downtown, Twin Peaks and valley views. This residence’s truly unique design creates a strong impression by combining sleek, angled contemporary lines accentuated by dramatic steel, concrete and wood finishes. The distinct profile of the house allows the interior spaces to reflect the same sense of amplitude and scale. Step in to the entry that leads to a sculptural staircase which introduces each remarkable level.
The main level’s central element of design is its fluid, informal open floor plan which includes the living room, dining room, with South-facing clerestory windows, a gourmet kitchen and breakfast area, all enveloped by spectacular views. A wall of glass creates an expanded horizon and the spacious terrace extends the living space outdoors. In addition, this floor boasts an office/guest bedroom en suite, a powder room and a substantial family/media room with direct access to the substantial deck and level, secluded South-facing back yard. Step down directly from the kitchen in to the wine cellar with dual wine refrigerators as well as an ample pantry with its own sink and counter space.
The second level features three en suites including the luxurious master suite with generous walk-in closets and a lavish spa-like master bath.
Adding to this residence’s exceptional appeal is a separate guest apartment with beautiful outlooks, ideal for accommodating family and friends. This apartment is complemented by a living/dining room and bedroom with direct access to a terrace, opening rooms to the outside. A fully equipped kitchen, a full bath and its own steam washer and dryer complete this second living space.
An elevator serves all levels of the home and is conveniently accessed from the 4-car garage.

Neighborhood: Noe Valley
Noe Valley is a neighborhood of contradictions. It's home to both liberals and conservatives, it has attracted the working class and dot.com millionaires. Noe is a shopper-friendly neighborhood whose bistros, coffee shops, and bookstores are always lively, and where parking is always at a premium. The hills that surround Noe Valley give it an air of remoteness and removal from the city, which, along with the plethora of pretty, long-standing Victorians, is what attracts families with kids, dogs and strollers to the neighborhood. Noe Valleyans enjoy their neighborhood -- especially on weekends, if the dense foot traffic on 24th Street is any indication.
