The chef's kitchen, adjacent to the living room, has been intelligently designed for entertaining with a 6-burner gas range with a grill, double ovens, an industrial sized hood that vents out, a refrigerator with two additional cooling cabinets and two freezer cabinets, custom counters, and great storage. There is an additional wine fridge located in the entry closet. The dining area is located in the southeast corner of the home and enjoys views of downtown as well as great natural light.

The master suite enjoys two closets (including one walk-in closet), an en-suite bath, and a lovely terrace with views of downtown.

Living at the Golden Gateway Commons is truly a private retreat in the heart of the city. The three-building community was constructed between 1980-1986 and has maintained a timeless elegance. Known for its beautiful brick façade and enchanting garden pathways appointed with fountains, mature plants, and up-lighting, it is truly a community unlike any other. Fronting the Embarcadero on the east and Syndey Walton Square Park on the west, 640 Davis St is ideally located and within a short walk of the Ferry Building, Bay Club, the Financial District, Safeway, and some of the city’s best restaurants (including Kokkari, Coqueta, Cotogna, Quince, Coi, Bix, Fog City, Piperade, and many more).
