About the Property

1000 sq ft, spacious historic 1 bedroom, 1 bath, overlooking SF Bay

The perfect jumping off point for San Francisco! This gorgeous one-bedroom condo is in a quiet cul-de-sac on the northern edge of Telegraph Hill. It looks out over San Francisco Bay and Alcatraz, featuring spectacular views from sunrise to sunset. Its romantic ambiance is enhanced by the sound of the sea lions barking and the endless stream of ships and boats sailing through San Francisco Bay.

Built in 1932, this 1000 square foot apartment is on the first floor of a 6-unit Spanish Colonial building. Its unique features include rounded doorways, hardwood floors, exposed redwood beams and an oversized fireplace with art deco andirons. The apartment is elegantly furnished with Asian antiques, large comfortable sofa, Turkish and Persian rugs and a collection of Hindu temple art and modern western paintings.

The open, eat-in kitchen has a butcher block table and new, top-of-the-line appliances.

The bedroom has a queen-size bed, walk-in closet and walls done in an Italian marble glaze. It also features views to the bay. The cable TV in the bedroom is housed in a step tansu.


The bathroom features a deep tub, large shower with 2 powerful shower heads and unlimited hot water.

There is a radiant heating system. Washer and dryer are accessible in the basement. There is wireless internet and on-street parking.

It's just a short walk down the hill to the heart of North Beach, San Francisco's old world Italian neighborhood.

Fabulous restaurants, bars, music venues, and coffeehouses, Washington Square Park, French and Italian bakeries, City Lights Bookstore, Pilates and yoga studios, the Sunday farmer's market and more delights are just footsteps away.

Coit Tower, the iconic landmark atop Telegraph Hill, is a few blocks away offering 360 degree views of the city, the bay and both bridges. The inside of Coit Tower houses historic New Deal murals. We are also near the famous Filbert Street steps, home to the wild parrots of Telegraph Hill. The bustling markets of Chinatown, the financial district and downtown Union Square are all within walking distance.

The cablecar is 5 blocks away. City buses 30 and 45 run down Columbus Ave and the Embarcadero streetcar is also nearby. The Blue and Gold Ferry to Sausalito, Tiburon, Angel island and Alcatraz are down the hill at Piers 39 and 41.

Shopping is easy as we have a Trader Joe's, a Safeway, a natural foods store and many gourmet specialty shops close by.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: I am a Canadian-trained osteopath practicing manual therapy in San Francisco. I specialize in working with infants and children. I travel to India every year to work with disabled children and am currently focusing on raising money to build the first school for disabled children in the town of Tiruvanamalai, South India. I love to travel, new adventures, nature, a good cappuccino, and dancing Argentine tango.

Why the Owner Chose North Beach, San Francisco, CA, USA:
The location is fantastic. You are in the heart of the city, but you feel like you are in nature. You get to watch the boats and weather across the San Francisco Bay, and stay cosy in front of a warm fire.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The view takes my breath away every morning and I have been living here for 15 years. I have beautiful antiques and the place is peaceful, a lovely retreat in the heart of San Francisco.
