Both structures enjoy similar material palettes loaded with custom doors and windows, built-in speakers, stainless steel appliances and retractable glass panels. The master suite enjoys a private balcony, and its lavish spa bathroom includes both an oversized Neptune tub and a walk-in shower beneath a skylight.

- Contemporary living at Potrero's ‘jewel on the hill’
Monday Jun 12, 2017
[...] a corner home in Potrero Hill became a signature party house for decorator to the stars. The interior is a lasting legacy of designer Larry Masnada, the prominent ’80s artisan who fashioned pads for Mel Brooks, Frank Sinatra, and Diane Sawyer. Believed to be the first home built in the neighborhood, the corner residence owes its existence to diary owner Charles Dow. There’s leather on the stainless steel vanities and a circular shower. The kitchen’s glossy aesthetic draws comparisons to sleek European kitchens. The flowing design of the public rooms ushers guests toward the pool patio in this warmer section of San Francisco. The main level a floor above includes a pair of bedrooms opposite the living and dining rooms. Drawings for transforming the attic into a full upper level offer a glimpse into further development potential. The garage level — with its full bathroom, bedroom and own entrance — stands out as an turnkey income stream. The design shows an abundance of thought into daily living as a bathroom with sliding glass doors off the patio invites a shower before coming inside from the pool. A pair of sinks complement this sleek space and pairs with the handleless cabinetry and the cooktop’s stainless steel backsplash. The far end of the eat-in kitchen features a breakfast area with a built-in office nook. A gourmet kitchen features a built-in cooktop, dual ovens and sunroom windows.

- Shock therapy: VW's Passat bristles with tech, value
By Jeff Yip, Autos Correspondent - Friday Jul 21, 2017
Volkswagen's midsize sedan not only offers European-style and handling, a willing turbocharged engine and plenty of room for under $24,000 but blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and forward-collision warning (with automatic emergency braking) are baked in.Ditto its six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and sport mode, rear camera system with independent brightness control and VW Car-Net, VW's telematics and smartphone integration bundle.Just one step up from the base Passat, the R-Line is VW's designated sport version with 235/40 19-inch all-season tires on double-spoke alloy wheels.Unfortunately, there's no manual gearbox but the R-Line does get its own bumpers, grille, brushed stainless steel covers for the gas and brake pedals, and R-Line scuff protectors for the doorsills.Volkswagen also packages the R-Line with standard automatic headlights, heated, foldable side mirrors, heated front seats (eight-way power with lumbar support for driver/manual passenger), dual-zone climate control, tilt telescoping steering column, leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel and shift lever handle, one-touch power windows, three 12-volt power points and USB and auxiliary inputs.In addition to the driver-assist technology, VW added high-strength steel to specific places, including foot wells and door sills to improve stiffness without adding weight.The 3,263-pound Passat was named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and has earned a five-star overall rating from the National Traffic Highway Safety Administration.Volkswagen notes that while both engines operate fine on regular unleaded gas, the published horsepower specs were attained on premium.VW's Car-Net and "App-Connect" technology is standard, so compatible mobile devices can take advantage of the Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink smartphone integration systems.
