Inside Lundberg’s Modern Manse On Jackson
Morgan chides us for leaving you hanging without any interior shots of yesterday’s modern manse on Jackson. We respond with a direct link to the “Pacific Heights Residence” on the Lundberg Design website. (Be sure not to miss the little up/down navigational arrows in the lower right-hand corner of the page.) Hey, we aim to please.

You gotta be kidding me. That is one awesome property. A little cold in its modern design, but pretty insane. Was that a pool in the back yard or just lighting?
Also, some more photo shots of the place and custom fabrications at http://www.lundbergdesign.com/subpages/fabrication_PACIFIC_HEIGHTS_RESIDENCE.htm

Wow! There is no doubt that Olle Lundberg is one of top designers in Northern California today. His projects are original, modern and somehow have qualities that I feel help to make them a part of the Bay Area context and landscape. The metal fabrication work alone, on this house and his other projects is fantastic and original and worth the design fee. Thanks Socketsite for the early birthday present and for pointing out the little up/down arrows. I had been on the site before and had not seen these so I missed the majority of the images in the portfolio. This is the kind of original design work that should be encouraged in this city instead of being fought against. Socketsite may be for real estate scoops, but it is also a great resource for us in the design and construction industry. Thanks again!

Interesting new design and would love to throw a party there. But would I live there? No. It is a bit too industrial and cold (like an airport terminal or modern musuem) for me. Goes to show that tastes in homes are highly personal. Nonetheless, I applaud the design team for its daring design in a traditional neighborhood.

Yes, tastes in homes are highly personal. My dream house is Eero Saarinen's TWA Flight Center at JFK:

It's pretty nice if you like a futuristic feel. And I do. Does it come with a two spaceship garage?

This house comes with 3 cars garage.With also a huge driveway, you could at least fit 3 more cars there, so that's a total of 6 cars. I really love it. I live about two block aways from it.

This is Peter Magowan's house. He sold a beautiful traditional place on Divisadero and built this one.

No estimates on home value. Seems like a fun game to try and come up with a value for a property that has never transacted? :)

How do you know whose house this is?

Peter Magowan's taste in architecture far exceeds his taste in left fielders.

i know three other people who live on that block. they confirmed it.

Propertyshark lists the owner as Mark W. Perry, a partner at NEA and a director of Tivo. Magowan is still listed as the owner of 2100 Washington right next to Danielle Steele, which a much more impressive home than this one.

It is definitely the Perry's house. The McGowans live next door to the Tobins, across the street from Danielle Steele. Amused, your sources do not know the neighbors.

it is Perry's house- I worked on it.
