Chalk it up to serendipity, coincidence or shrewd marketing, but it’s two weeks from Valentine’s Day and the home literally across the street from a world-renowned chocolate factory is hitting the market.
Due south of Ghirardelli Square is 941 North Point St., a thoroughly renovated two-story condo with four bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms in a coveted location on Russian Hill.
“That hint of chocolate aroma in the area begins the home’s romance before you even reach the door,” said Butch Haze of Sotheby’s International Realty, who helped update the interior of the $3.495 million listing. “Then you walk into a designer’s dream.”
Wide, hand-scraped hickory planks line the floor, complementing restored period moldings and reflecting sunlight pouring in through tall windows. The modern kitchen revolves around name-brand appliances and marble. A spacious bar and open theater leading to a south-facing backyard awaits downstairs.
“Everything here has been done for the love of architecture,” Haze said.
