Beautifully restored with lovely spaces and on the market: a duplex in the Marina district in San Francisco designed by Richard Neutra. Writing in Sunset in 1943, Neutra explained that the success or “livability” of a house could be measured by how much living could be enjoyed in every part of it each hour of the day. It’s a concept that remains significant even now. The duplex was sold by its original owner in 1993 to architect Chad Overway, who spent the next 10 years lovingly restoring it. The building has a four-car garage and two units: 2058 and 2056 Jefferson. The former: two levels, 3 beds, 3 baths, 2,530 square feet, and a roof terrace. The latter: 2 beds, 2 baths, and 1,724 square feet. Asking $3,950,000.
