Unique in so many ways, 25 Rico was completed as new construction in 2003 with the goal of creating an adult, sophisticated home as exciting for entertaining as it is soothing after a long day. The main level of the residence enjoys 11 ceilings and an open living-kitchen-dining space of surprising volume and style. An elevator serves all levels. At the heart of this great room is the kitchen of an Italian chef; it offers the best of everything. Two sinks and 2 dishwashers in a 14 curved limestone counter. Seating for guests. Six burner gas cooktop, professional hood, double ovens, micro wave. Espresso system, SubZero, tons of storage, desk and adjacent pantry. A cast stone fireplace anchors the living room with simplicity and substance. A wall of beautifully lighted cabinetry houses glassware, china and linens. Every detail for daily living was thoughtfully planned. Concrete floors are finished to evoke tanned leather; white ash cabinetry and limestone provide an aesthetic grounded in nature. Floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors throughout are dressed with white ash shutters. Recessed lighting highlights artwork and seating areas, while radiant heat warms the entire residence. The 5 outdoor spaces enjoy mature landscaping and dramatic night lighting. The 3rd level of the residence is truly a haven; 2 suites (one equipped as an office), laundry room, outdoor terraces. From inside the master one can glimpse the Golden Gate Bridge, with both towers and Marin headlands visible from the stone terrace. Skylights add to the already abundant natural light. One floor up is the roof deck with 360 degree views that take in the Bridge, some of the Bay, Alcatraz and the City. Solar panels provide power for the homes systems and battery. On the first level a large guest suite with French doors opens to the landscaped garden and patio. Also on this level are the wine cellar, additional storage, mechanical rooms and 2-car side-by-side garage.
