The Best of Both Worlds [sponsored]
In the emblematic words of Rudyard Kipling, “San Francisco has only one drawback. ‘Tis hard to leave.” For those of you living in Marin, you never have to completely leave. Sometimes you just need a change of scenery – escaping from work and family schedules to what our local owners describe as their happy place, Fairmont Heritage Place by the Bay. It can be your home-away-from home or the staycation destination that keeps on giving throughout the year.
The majority of the club’s owners live within a 90-mile radius of the city and were once full time residents. Having a pied-a-terre allows these former city residents to maintain their Opera season traditions, season ticket holder status with the Giants, and access to world-renowned dining. And the location—the intersection of Russian Hill, the Marina, and Golden Gate National Recreation Area—is ideal for parents that wish to offer their children a chance to experience the culture of San Francisco and forge the next-generation’s connection to this vibrant city.
With 53 private residences ranging from 1,200 to 1,800 square feet, Fairmont Heritage Place Ghirardelli Square offers 1/10 deeded fractional ownership which provides 5 weeks of annual usage. The property itself truly is one-of-a-kind, with the original preserved red brick of the former Ghirardelli Chocolate factory paired with modern luxuries and sweeping terrace views of the Bay. The residences are made for entertaining – everything from dinner parties with hired private chefs, graduation parties hosted on the terrace or a resting spot for the business owner’s hectic schedule in the city.
It’s a place of celebration or intimate getaway and always customized to your specific preferences. A dedicated Owner Services team and 24-hour concierge is there to assist with scheduling itineraries, personal shopping, child care services, and more. Your personal items, garment bags, and wine is brought out of storage and ready in your residence for your arrival. Even the city traffic becomes less of a burden with a chauffeured house car to take you anywhere within a 2-mile radius of the property.
If your schedule does not permit you from using all 5 weeks in San Francisco, you can place time into the rental program or take advantage of reciprocity at any Fairmont, Raffles, or Swissotel location around the world, which includes the Plaza Hotel in New York, the Savoy in London, and the Raffles in Paris.
With Fairmont Heritage Place, you truly can have it all. Two and three bedroom residences are available for purchase starting at $220,000. Contact us to schedule your personalized tour of the club.
