Penthouse At 181 Fremont Seeks $15 million

by Brock Keeling | @BrockKeeling | Curbed SF

While this isn’t the grand penthouse at 181 Fremont—aka, the most expensive home on the SF market right now, inside the East Cut’s spire-topped high-rise—it’s one of two other penthouses inside the contemporary tower. And it’s quite the looker.

Featuring two beds, two and a half baths, and 3,256 square feet, unit 55B, which takes up half of an entire floor, is move-in ready. Unlike other units in the tony skyscraper, this home has been revamped and reshaped by Kendall Wilkinson and Phillip Silver of Kendall Wilkinson Design.

Most striking is the new formal lobby graced with textured turquoise wall covering by Phillip Jefferies. The lobby space includes a custom geometric brass console and a pair of fretwork brass screens.

The living room and kitchen areas feature 180-degree views of the East Bay, South Bay, and San Francisco. The living room comes with curvaceous furniture, more textured wall coverings, and custom Porta Romana sconces.

A new den can be found adjacent to the living room, which could double as an office, a media room, or an extra room for overnight guests. Other highlights throughout the space include expandable chandelier by Peter Bristol, a noted Apple product designer; turquoise Brueton dining chairs reproduced from their 1980s designs; and a marble master bathroom with floor-to-ceiling windows, two toilets with views of the city, bidet, and steam room.

Asking is $15.5 million, inclusive of furnishings and finishes. The art on the walls, however, will cost extra.

Please note that the neighboring penthouse on the same floor, unit 69A, sold for $15 million recently, which set the record for highest price per square foot ever paid for a condo in San Francisco at $4,505.
