Additional Location Information

This charming turn-of-the-century home has been fully updated with modern appliances and fixtures, yet retains its historical character and classic San Francisco ambiance. Famous architect Charles L. Bugbee designed the building after the 1906 earthquake. It features three levels, including a spacious roof deck with sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay and the city.

High atop prestigious Russian Hill, the building is a short walk in any direction to the city's top attractions, including the Polk Street cafes, Union Square shops, North Beach, Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf. Several well known restaurants and shops are right around the corner, as well as the Cable Car stop. The building features a security gate with private entrance.

About the property and amenities:
Both living room and master bedroom offer panoramic views of the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. The livingroom features a large flat screen TV and entertainment system, along with an extensive library of books, DVDs and CDs. The original pocket doors can be closed for privacy, providing the option of turning the living room into another sleeping room using the fold-out sofa bed. For those interested in historical elements, the small bath on the main level retains some of the original tiles and fixtures that were part of the building's renovation after the 1906 earthquake. Cable TV and WiFi internet are provided, along with a printer/scanner/copier.

The open floor plan of the well-lighted kitchen and dining room area provides a perfect setup for entertaining guests. The kitchen is functional and cozy, with a fireplace to mingle around as meals are prepared. Modern appliances include a gas Dynasty stove for serious cooking, and a window just above it affords yet another majestic view of the Bay. Dishes, flatware, cooking utensils, and a variety of cookware are provided.

The second level features 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, offering privacy and flexibility for up to six people. The master bedroom has a queen size bed with an adjoining updated master bath. It features a large flat screen internet tv, plenty of drawer and closet storage, and recessed lighting for enjoyment of the magnificent views of the Bay. The master bath has been remodeled with a new tub and shower. The second bedroom has a full-size bed, and the third bedroom has a queen size bed. The second floor guest bathroom is fully remodeled with a modern shower built around the traditional light well. All bedrooms and bathrooms have plenty of closet and drawer space.

One of the nicest features of this home is its beautiful deck. Host family or friends for a barbeque or enjoy quieter moments watching the sun set behind the Golden Gate Bridge with the deck's music system playing in the background.

Right outside your doorstep, you'll find a wide variety of conveniently located stores for necessities like Safeway and Trader Joe's grocery stores, Peet's and Starbucks coffeehouses; antique stores and modern boutiques; wine bars and restaurants offering every kind of cuisine you can imagine, and lots more to explore.

Eating and Dining:

Notable Sights:
