San Francisco home with Coit Tower, Golden Gate view for sale


A chic and contemporary home in the Telegraph Hill area of San Francisco has hit the market for $9.99 million with a rare combination of features.

It offers views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Coit Tower through floor-to-ceiling glass walls and from multiple decks, as well as a flat, lushly planted backyard with palm trees and other tropical vegetation.

The five-bedroom, four-bathroom home at 32 Julius St. — originally designed by influential Bay Area architect Stanley Saitowitz —spans 5,780 square feet across four levels. There is a gym and yoga room, too.

“This property is beautifully perched above the bay,” said listing agent Max Amour of Compass in an email response to the Sacramento Bee. “It feels as if you are floating above the shimmering waters.”

The seller is Tien Tzuo, founder and CEO of software company Zuora, according to The Real Deal. He purchased the property with his wife Mariana for $6.75 million in 2013, the real estate website.

The residence also was the former studio and home of San Francisco arts patron Ann Hatch, according to Compass real estate firm.

To have this much land is a true luxury. Upon entering the home one feels the tranquility. It is so quiet and peaceful. Not only is the quality and condition exceptional, but also it has a beautiful contemporary design.”

“32 Julius is perfectly situated to take in the views that are so recognizable and adored,” according to the property website. “When you are in this exceptional property you feel as if you are floating on a cloud. The floor to ceiling glass provides the venue to soak in the glory of the glistening waters of the bay, the grandeur of the Golden Gate Bridge and the iconic hills and curves of this unique marvel.”
