The 25-yard indoor competition lap pool, with access to a private outdoor terrace and hot tub, is
equally suited for fitness or relaxation.
Known as "The Pinnacle of Luxury" in the Grand Residences of the 60-story Millennium Tower at 301 Mission St., a
modern-style penthouse overlooks the Financial District of downtown San Francisco and beyond.
As described by Mark Venegas, corporate relocation specialist with American Marketing Systems, the 2,706-square-foot
unit offers all the pleasures of home and leisure while the view paints a breathtaking portrait of the northern skyline.
"The floor plan is one of the best views of San Francisco," he said, "with one of the best layouts of the penthouses."
The unit's three-bedroom and three-bathroom floor plan is available at the first penthouse level on the 59th floor known as
"PHA1." The lengthy foyer area leads into a living and dining room with high ceilings as well as the first glimpse of
breathtaking views of San Francisco Bay and the Bay Bridge.
"The view of the bay and bridge is spectacular during the day and at night. The main living room has such a great space
and layout," Venegas said. "Great finishings throughout with so much light."
The area is connected to a den that could easily turn into a library/home office or third bedroom with a full bathroom. The
kitchen is anchored by a Calacatta Luccicoso marble countertop and island top surrounded by European teak cabinetry and
satin glass wall cabinet doors.
Appliances include a Sub-Zero, 48-inch built-in refrigerator with dual freezers, U-line wine cooler with teak-framed glass
door and Wolf stainless steel built-in wall oven.
The recently upgraded master suite features two ample-sized walk-in closets with a master bath that includes dual sinks
with polished Calacatta Oro marble countertop, European walnut cabinetry and a stall shower with frameless glass door.
The second bedroom with a full bathroom is located next to the master suite and across from the laundry room.
The luxury loft, priced at $5.295 million, although modern, gives potential buyers an international flare throughout the
penthouse, Venegas said.
"The artwork is very diverse and unique," he said. "You can see the large horse in the main room and wonderful art from
all over the world displayed in open spaces."
The tower, glossed in light sky blue glass, is a work of art itself. Millennium Tower, completed in 2009, is the tallest
residential building in San Francisco and stands as a staple of the southern city skyline.
"The penthouse is a great place to invest in for someone who travels and wants to own a place in San Francisco," Venegas
said. "It's also a great rental too, an income-producing property for an investor."
Venegas noted the penthouse can also serve as a hub for domestic and international companies doing business in the city
or for a retired couple who want to enjoy all the wonderful amenities of the tower without going too far. And the comforts
are plenty: a 24-hour valet, staff, concierge floor, fitness center and round-the-clock security, for starters.
"It will take someone from anywhere in the world - China, Japan, South Korea or the U.S. - that will want perfection and a
residential building that is first class," he said. "This penthouse could sell in less than six months."
Venegas noted the neighborhood is incredibly accessible to conduct everyday chores while still planted in the city's
"You can walk to the S.F. Ferry Building on a Saturday to pick up fresh fruits and vegetables at the Farmers Market, meet
friends at some of the top restaurants or head to Union Square for some shopping," he said. "The area is vibrant yet quiet."
Other perks in owning the tower's residency include a massive Owner's Club Level that includes a Pilates and yoga room,
saltwater lap pool, outdoor terraces and a wine-tasting room and cellar. It is also home to urban wine bar and restaurant
In the heart of the business district, Millennium Tower also thrives as a residential neighborhood.
"Living here is a excellent way to meet new, interesting friends from all over the country and world," Venegas said.
"There is a very quiet, beautiful and zen-like feel to the place - just very peaceful. The views take you away, and it is just a
wonderful place to entertain and live."
