Russian Hill house description

Visit San Francisco, and stay in our stunning, panoramic view home, on one of the highest hills in Russian Hill. Just a few blocks above the vibrant neighborhood of North Beach, right above Mason and San Francisco’s famous cable car, and next door to the Ina Coolbirth Park, (named after California’s first poet laureate), our home is a large spacious living space with a gracious living room and fireplace, dining room, brand new kitchen, family/TV room, with incredible panoramic views from all rooms and from the large patio. You can see San Francisco Bay, the City, Coit Tower, Transamerica Tower, and beyond.

Our location is within walking distance to intimate Russian Hill restaurants as well as the coffee shops, restaurants, bars, galleries, museums, and churches of North Beach and Washington Square. We are ½ block from the cable car, 2 blocks from the bus stop, and just 3 blocks from San Francisco’s famous Lombard Street, (the crooked street), in Russian Hill. We are an easy taxi ride to Union Square and world class shopping, the Ferry Building and the Slanted Door, and the new de Young Museum; or you can venture out indeed all over San Francisco to experience the hottest new spots in SOMA, Cow Hollow, or the mission district.

948 Vallejo is an elegant home away from home, with a spacious living room and fireplace with spectacular views, furnished with comfortable antiques, including a Biedemeier sofa, table and chairs, a Kentucky hardwood secretary, brand new American Leather Comfort Sleeper sofa-bed, oriental carpets and crystal chandeliers; great view dining room with granite table, chairs, and beautiful buffet, and Chinese carpet; a full-sized kitchen with brand new appliances; two spacious bedrooms with Ralph Lauren linens, guest robes, new mattresses, and comfortable antique beds and oriental carpets; one and ½ new bathrooms with radiant heat and a two person shower.

The home has a large patio with spectacular views of the City and the San Francisco Bay, perfect for a cocktail party for 20, or a private yoga class for two. The home is decorated with chandeliers and oriental carpets; it has high ceilings and elegant molding, throughout, and has great art, featuring artists David Lee, Milton Meyer, Eric Bransby, Kenneth Harris, and Joan Segrelles of Barcelona, among others.

All systems and appliances, (including the heater), are new and work well. The home has a flat screen TV, cable, a rich selection of books, and wireless internet.

Our home is a wonderful home away from home for a couple or two, (or three), a family, or a corporate team visiting San Francisco on business. Discover San Francisco from our spacious and elegant home; enjoy world class views, its ideal location, and its wonderful elevation, high above the exciting city: Your home away from home in San Francisco!

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2011

                              About the owner: For the last 20 years, my husband has served as Chancellor of two statewide higher educational systems: the University of West Virginia System, in Charleston, West Virginia; and the Tennessee Board of Regents, in Nashville, Tennessee. He is a very gentle and gracious man who cares deeply about education. Yet with state resources strained to the limit these days, public education is a highly politicized enterprise, with increasing competition for decreasing dollars. So after each of his quarterly board meetings, I would whisk Charles out to San Francisco for a little break: to restore and re-charge, to rest and read, to walk the wonderful streets of San Francisco and to eat in grand restaurants in the City. The result is this apartment. It is such a perfect spot, with its panoramic views, elegant interiors, and central location: it has become our home away from home, beckoning us from our busy lives, something we look forward to and truly embrace in our lives. If you are looking for an opportunity for just the right place, to get a break, restore and re-charge, and still be in the center of a vibrant city with all it has to offer, this could be the place for you.
