Luxurious Edwardian in a Very Special SF Location
Russian Hill evokes images of San Francisco both real and mythical: shadowy mysterious figures in the fog like Sam Spade and The Thin Man or even Dashiel Hammet himself; free loving Tales of the City characters wandering toward Barbary (Macondray) Lane; icons like the Cable Cars, the Buena Vista, and the “crookedest street”, plus chocolate and fresh fish (and crab!!!). Russian Hill and its adjacent areas are the essence of San Francisco itself to most of the world.
1708 Leavenworth is perched right near the top at the corner of the nationally registered historic “Paris Block.” As you exit the front door you can sight the Bay and Alcatraz to the north. Strolling a few blocks west you can reach the excellent shopping on Polk; a few blocks east the delights of North Beach unfold; while a few blocks north takes you to Ghirardelli Square and Fisherman’s Wharf. The location is as Ess Eff as it gets!
The condo itself homey and warm. Edwardian details, such as box beam ceiling, spacious plate rails, a decorative fireplace and hardwood floors all remind you of another era. The large living and dining rooms are adjacent to each other and flow to the large kitchen with freshly painted cabinets, granite counters, stainless appliances, and a charming stained glass window accent. The main bath features elegant Carrera walls and shower over tub. There is a convenient ½ bath next to the 2nd bedroom, a full laundry room and one car parking. Also, in a city famous for all the stairs everywhere, this rare flat has almost none. It is a great turn-key city home or pied-a terré ready for you to move right in!
