House Tour: A New Day

We’re kicking off our house tours here on the YLiving blog with a peek into this 1895  Neo-Victorian home in San Francisco’s Noe Valley neighborhood. What you see is not what you get once you step inside. I guarantee you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Check it out this modern house tour of a New Day:

From this outside, you can’t deny that it’s a beautiful Neo-Victorian home, something that San Francisco is known for coveting. Though it doesn’t look like the modern marvel we love to drool over here at YLiving, once you step inside you are immediately transported to a modern masterpiece. I promise.

How is this even the same house on the inside? It’s so clean and spacious, not at all what you would expect from looking at the Victorian front. The continuous floor plan and glass railed staircase throw this house wide open.

While the entire house is beautiful, we’re going to really focus in on the kitchen bath spaces. I love the long kitchen island, not only does it provide this galley kitchen with precious counter space, but it has plenty of seating for the whole family to chow down together.

The stainless steel fixtures mix and mingle with the neutral white cupboards. A stainless steel kitchen sink  and  a pre-rinse stainless steel kitchen faucet  are the perfect place to get down and dirty with the dishes or to prep for a hearty meal.

In the bathroom, a double vanity provides plenty of counter space. An Elf3 Plus Bath Light from Illuminating Experiences Lighting is mounted over a long horizontal mirror, lighting the narrow space.

Along the wall of the bathroom is an open shower. It’s minimal and functional, with a simple tiled wall with a built in recess for those shower essentials. I’m all about having options in the shower, so incorporating both a rain shower and hand shower with a sleek diverter is a major plus.

And if you thought the main bathroom was beautiful, just take a peek into the master bathroom. It’s the total luxurious oasis getaway that we all dream about having. A long vanity in with a sleek front has a his and her side, each with their own mirror and vanity light for getting ready in the morning. A wall mounted toilet only adds to the light and airy feel of this neutral master bathroom.

And the luxurious focal point, a deep soaking tub tucked into a little nook all its own. With sleek fixtures and a window to bring in some natural light, this is where I’d spend all of my time.
