Custom built by Galen Wilson for his family and fine-tuned by subsequent owners, it merges the best of midcentury-modern architecture. Whitewashed gallery walls and soaring windows are grounded with a vintage Malm living room fireplace. Strategically placed decks bring outside nature in. Room placement provides connection & intimacy on three levels with a sweeping skylight breezeway and foyer. The primary bedroom has a deck overlooking the backyard, a massive en suite with a rainfall shower, and skylights. Located in a quiet pocket of Magnolia a few blocks from Fisherman’s Terminal and Discovery Park, it’s only 10 minutes to downtown."
