I Want This House on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco, $1.9M
This condo for $1,995,000 at 235 Francisco St. is on one of the more private streets on Telegraph Hill, and is in a residential neighborhood that is much quieter than the neighboring North Beach area and its busy cafes and nightlife.
Telegraph Hill is famous for Coit Tower, a landmark Art Deco tower atop Telegraph Hill itself with sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay. The neighborhood is also home to "The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill," highlighted in a 2003 documentary and book about a flock of feral parrots.
The home offers outstanding views of San Francisco, which is exactly what you'd expect from one of the highest hills in the city in a neighborhood close to so many great sights. The three-story building, which also has an 180-degree view from the roof desk, has partial bay views from the top floor's entertainment room and office alcove of the bay and Alcatraz Island. Sunsets, according to the real estate agent, are glorious.
The condo has two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and two partial bathrooms. It has 2,279 square feet with an elevator serving all three floors. Everything about it looks modern and stylish, from the bathroom lighting to the window coverings. There's even a small culinary garden on the terrace outside the kitchen and dining room, and decorative plantings on the balcony.
The $1,995,000 price was recently dropped by 5 percent from $2.1 million. Similar homes in the neighborhood have sold for $1,867,000.
