Property description

NEWLY RENOVATED!

“One day, if I go to heaven…I’ll look around and say, ‘It ain’t bad, but it ain’t San Francisco.’”
Herb Cain

In San Francisco, it is all about location and views...and we have them both.

THE DETAILS:

~ 30 minimum stay required.

~ Two upscale view apartments, The Filbert Step's View and The City Light's View.

~ Both units have amazing views and high end appointments.

~ Most of the tourist destinations are within walking distance

~ Identical layout - bedroom overlooking the living room

~ Full kitchen

~ Close to public transportation - No need to rent a car!

~ The wild parrots of Telegraph Hill fly by all the time!!!

THE SIZZLE:

Some of the comments our guests have made are:

- “Amazing views!”
- “The photos don’t do it justice.”
- “The Filbert Steps are so romantic.”
- “I loved waking up to the wild parrots in the morning.”

In this well-loved city, Telegraph Hill is San Francisco’s most charming neighborhood. Offering spectacular views of the Bay and its bridges, the San Francisco skyline, and the East Bay, Telegraph Hill couples Bohemian history with walking-distance convenience to Chinatown, North Beach (the heart of the Italian community and the 1950's 'beatnik' heritage of Grant Avenue), Pier 39, the Embarcadero, and the Financial District/Union Square.

Within this special neighborhood lies the jewel: the Filbert Street Steps. Historic and much-photographed, the Steps are the soul of Telegraph Hill: quiet (there is no vehicular traffic), a favorable 'micro climate' (the City might be foggy but sunny on the Steps), with verdant flower gardens and the famous 'Parrots of Telegraph Hill'. Because of this uniqueness, houses on the Steps rarely come on the real estate market; they are passed from generation to generation or snapped up by the neighborhood residents.

Here is your chance to stay in a unique Filbert Steps property, a three-unit building with magnificent Bay and City views designed by noted architect Henry Hester. 2 units are immediately available. Both are two-story apartments, with a bedroom overlooking a living room (with wood-burning fireplace) and kitchen/dining area. These units were combined in the 1960's as the 'bachelor pad' of actor George C. Scott in the movie, 'Petulia', but are two separate units again...as the architect had intended.

These units appeal to different visitors depending on when they are going to be in the unit.

Filbert Steps View:

If you are going to spend the day hanging out on the Filbert Steps, this unit is for you. This is perfect for the visitor who wants to relax during the day and enjoy an amazing view of the Filbert Steps, Coit Tower and the San Francisco Bay.

City Lights View:

If you are going to be working all day and want a place to unwind and enjoy the views at night, this unit is the definite choice. Imagine coming “home” and relaxing in the living room looking at the lights of the Bay Bridge and then falling asleep with a view of the city lights (specifically, the Transamerica Pyramid.) These are great views during the day too, but they really sparkle at night.

Although each apartment is perfect for a couple, the living room sofa in each converts to a Queen bed. Fully-furnished with modern art from the owner’s extensive collection (including canvases from Stanford University artist-in-residence Dani Tull), bed and bath linens, TV/DVD, audio system (with CD library), a fully-equipped kitchen (except dishwasher), and other amenities.

The building has no parking, but street parking is available. San Francisco’s iconic Coit Tower is only steps away from the building’s front door and offers additional parking.

The 39 Coit bus stops a few doors away and makes a loop from Fisherman's Wharf through North Beach and up to Coit Tower all day. A laundromat is 1 block from the building. The shops and restaurants of North Beach are a 3-block walk.

“San Francisco has only one drawback – ‘tis hard to leave.”
Rudyard Kipling
