Discover San Francisco Modern and Contemporary Homes For Sale

Contemporary and modern architecture involves literally thinking outside—or beyond—the box. For this reason, it's often quite difficult to classify San Francisco modern and contemporary homes for sale. Frequently embedded in established neighborhoods among more traditional homes, these one-of-a-kind statements have been designed by some of the city's most renowned architects.

Though very much products of 21st century design techniques, what these homes have in common is the application of timeless craftsmanship and a meticulous attention to detail. Some homes do this by playing with the possibilities of texture by gift-wrapping walls in metal siding, concrete panels, polycarbonate, and wood. Others feature wide panels of enhanced glass that open the interior to the city's spectacular vistas.

Regardless of the property you choose, though, San Francisco contemporary and modern homes for sale are as much achievements in interior design as they are masterworks of architecture. As a result, you'll discover these homes include smart accents and finishes that reflect their innovative exteriors. You'll also find some extremely desirable luxury features, including:

  • wide-plank hardwood flooring
  • custom cabinetry and backsplashes
  • stunning 360° view decks
  • outdoor spas and hot tubs
  • art gallery style living rooms

Though often located in the city's most vibrant neighborhoods, San Francisco modern and contemporary real estate disrupts the usual hustle of city life by creating astonishing private retreats that maximize relaxation and comfort. In short, they're perfect for consummate urbanites who've earned a little peace for themselves.

Though you'll find them throughout the city, the majority of the contemporary homes of San Francisco are located in the city's most developed and desirable neighborhoods, from SoMa to Cow Hollow. These spots are coveted by residents looking to live with the city's best cafes, restaurants, and retailers at their doorstep. A typical contemporary home in trendy Haight-Ashbury, for example, has more than a dozen restaurants and bars around the corner, just as many grocers and markets, and a generous handful of public parks nearby. The University of San Francisco and UC San Francisco are both close at hand, as are a number of great elementary and high schools.

In addition to excellent Walk Scores, The Bay contains many of Northern California's most captivating natural wonders, including the old-growth redwoods of Muir Woods, the 11 miles of walking and hiking trails of the Presidio, and the peak of Mount Tamalpais. Accessing surrounding cities or the rest of the state is also extremely easy thanks to San Francisco's world-class network of highways and freeways, ferries and bridges, and international airports.
