A luxury San Francisco residence with a city view called the Bauhaus is almost as beautiful as the majestic serval taking a tour of the house.

If the five-bedroom, six-bath, 4,400-square-foot European-style property sells – it just hit the market for $ 7.9 million – the serval, a wildcat native to Africa, wins too.

That’s because listing agent Erin Thompson of real estate company Compass works with Lyon Ranch, which rescues abused and neglected exotic animals and rehabilitates them for educational and animal-assisted therapy programs. She donates a percentage of her commission for the sale of the Bauhaus to the Lyon Ranch in Sonoma. She did not disclose the percentage.

The serval named Nandi can be seen in the real estate video (see above) with the architecture of the Bauhaus.

The four-story residence offers modern design, views of the city, its hills and the Sutro Tower and has a separate guest apartment with one bedroom and one bathroom. According to Compass, the house was turned 180 degrees when it was completely remodeled into a modern storefront by Bill Egan Architecture and Nuport Construction. The house at 21st St. 3790 was originally built in 1929.

“It was an incredible experience bringing the renovations to life and it was one of my favorite properties on the market,” Thompson said in an email response. “The most discerning buyer will love the uniqueness, function and European feel of this beautiful modern masterpiece on Dolores Heights. This is truly an entertainer’s dream home. “

The design shines with unique material, individual surfaces and abstract shapes mixed with clean lines, together with industrial metal details that seem to add an extra touch of beauty while Nandi roams around inside.

“The 400 square meter venue, which expresses the Bauhaus architectural movement, includes holistic design, abstract shapes mixed with clear lines, and industrial materials,” the listing says. “The European elements and the optimized aesthetics of the house ensure unforgettable modernity. Custom recessed lights, curtain rails, and shadow line details add to the minimalist design, while wide-plank Dinesen Douglass floors and waterjet metal details add warmth and appeal. “

The top floor penthouse opens to seamless indoor and outdoor living with a wraparound deck, full views, an outdoor kitchen, wet bar, and an additional bedroom suite.

The property is considered a single family home with a legal guest apartment.
