A 41st-floor condo is running $6.75 million this week

Mirrors are so ’70s; this bedroom ceiling was reserved for a TV.

Current Owner: Sandra Brue

Bedrooms: 3

Baths: 3

Price: $6,750,000

Towering 41 stories above the convention center and surrounding Gaslamp District downtown, unit 4101 sits perched atop the Harbor Club, one of the city’s toniest (and priciest) high-rise condominium developments.

The penthouse is reached via a keyed elevator that opens to a private entry foyer, “with walls clad in elegant Sapele Pommele [a mahogany-like tropical African wood], handcrafted wall coverings, and a gorgeous marble floor from Spain,” according to listing materials.

Inside, the home occupies over 3700 square feet of space and features 360-degree views — from the downtown skyline and bayfront, to Coronado and Point Loma. Three private outdoor terraces are also accessible from the unit.

Interior work was overseen by local designer Arthur Porras using wood imported from Africa and Japan and marble from India, Italy, and Spain. The home is set up with nine zones for the climate-control system as well as automated lighting, window coverings, and stereo. All can be controlled from the owner’s smartphone.

The view south from the patio

The unit’s main level has two bedrooms and baths, including “a dazzling powder room clad in rare Lapis Lazuli stone.” The chef’s kitchen features 18-foot vaulted ceilings and is surrounded by a wall of glass looking out onto the city below, and a formal dining room has “walls of exotic wood concealing copious storage.” Other spaces include a spacious living area designed for entertaining guests and a “charming ‘morning room’ with fireplace.”

A second level within the condo is dedicated exclusively as a master suite, complete with open sitting area, a den/office, two glass-enclosed rooftop terraces, laundry facilities, a large walk-in closet with access to additional attic storage, and a 360-square-foot bedroom area. The master bath “gleams with marble from India, Avodire built-ins, two vanity areas, exquisitely handmade wall coverings, and a jetted tub with waterfall fixture.”

Three garage parking spaces that can fit up to five cars are included with the unit, as is access to common amenities including two lobbies with round-the-clock staffing, a landscaped pool terrace with 90-foot lap pool, spa, fire pits, and barbecue area. There’s also a newly remodeled cabana with catering kitchen available to residents hosting large events, a fitness center with sauna, and onsite library and media center — access is included in the $1197 monthly homeowners’ association assessment.

Public records show the unit’s current owner as Sandra Brue, a sculptor famous for her animal statuary and a major benefactor to the San Diego Zoo. Though the building was constructed in 1992, Brue appears to have purchased the condo direct from the developers in 1996 for just over $1.3 million. At that time the interior was still unfinished, leaving a blank canvas for the owner and designer Porras.

The unit was listed for sale in late August with an asking price of $6,750,000, which remains unchanged to date. Meanwhile, the penthouse suite in the Harbor Club’s other tower, profiled here back in May 2013, is still available with an asking price of $8,999,000 (down from $9,975,000 at the time).
