More Than Your Average Clock Tower

San Francisco’s Clock Tower Penthouse is not your average clock tower; in fact, it is nothing if not extraordinary. This stunning two-bedroom, two-bath property also comes with an expansive living area, which is added on to the tower itself, as well as an enormous wrap-around view deck that offers uncompromising views of the city skyline. But, hands-down, the crown jewel of this home is the top three adjoining levels of the clock tower, including the interior of the famous tower and the “Clock Room” itself!

With its open floor plan, rich brick interior, massive clock faces and time-keeping machinery, the Clock Room serves as the perfect setting for any get-together. The lights that illuminate the clock faces provide ample lighting in the space without it being too overwhelming for guests. There are even a few clear panes of glass on the clock faces where you and your guests can sneak a peak of the city.

Complete with a billiards table, pinball machine, a dart board, and plenty of seating, this part of the home provides ample opportunity for unwinding or hosting a casual party. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide an elegant backdrop that never gets old.

Unwind in This Remarkable Family Room

The ground floor of the clock tower makes for the ultimate family room thanks to its beautiful brick walls, exposed iron beams, and floor-to-ceiling bookcases. Like the other rooms above it, the family room also boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and an expansive open floor plan that you can customize to your tastes.

The clock tower’s family room also opens up to the dining room and kitchen in the extended living area. Whereas the rooms in the clock tower are bestowed with a rich, historic feel, the extended penthouse is modern in design with neutral colors, clean lines, and minimalist tones.

This trend continues to the posh sitting room complete with fireplace and otherworldly views, the luxurious bedrooms, and the sexy and streamlined bathrooms.
