Large, open windows and French doors in the lavish living room boast spectacular views that extend from Angel Island and the majestic Raccoon Strait to the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco city skyline. Elegant furnishings fill the room for sophisticated entertaining.

Villa de Martini, a 6,119-square-foot Italianate home located on Telegraph Hill, plays host to the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase featuring the Bay Area's top interior designers.

The Cloud Terrace at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase offers a nearly 180-degree view of San Francisco's top sights, including San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge.

The open metal and wood staircase is designed to allow light to filter down and through various floors. Also, the openness creates the illusion of space. The orange color is the same paint color used on the nearby Golden Gate Bridge. The same color is used on the front door and accent tile in the kitchen. The spectacular openness "pulls" visitors toward the stairs and up into the great room upstairs.
This three-level home, with approximately 9,235 square feet of living space, was originally built circa 1904 by C.O. Perry, a wealthy San Francisco banker. The home underwent a $30 million restoration to retain its original architectural detail while bringing the property into the 21st century. Secluded on Belvedere Island's southeastern crest, the Greek Revival-style masterpiece offers unobstructed 270-degree views that encompass the San Francisco city skyline, the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, Angel Island and the picturesque waters of the bay.
