Open living, kitchen, and dining areas set the tone for entertaining, generous in scale with dramatic wall-to-wall windows. Watch the sun set over the bridge as you cook dinner in the evening. Marble bar seating and upscale appliances (incl. 6-burner Viking range, drawer microwave, two dishwashers) let you keep up with conversation as you prep, serve, and erase the aftermath with gracious ease.

About the Neighborhood



Vibrant and safe, Cow Hollow is known for its excellent shopping, convenient location, and surplus of amenities. Nestled between Pacific Heights and the Marina on the border of Russian Hill, the neighborhood is walking distance from the Golden Gate Bridge, Presidio, Fisherman’s Wharf, North Beach, and Japan Town. Stroll over to Union St. corridor for unique gourmet, pet, salon, and wine shops and fun street festivals for Halloween, Easter and the June art festival. On Polk St. you’ll find great boutiques, no fewer than 5 coffee shops, a European-style newspaper kiosk, Michelin and 5-star restaurants, along with great seafood, burger and pizza joints. Take afternoon walks or runs down to the water, where you can enjoy uninterrupted trails and stunning oceanfront views. The connectivity is unlike anywhere else in the city, whether you’re catching a Warriors game at the new Chase Center or catching a shuttle to Silicon Valley’s top employers – and it’s only going to get better with the completion of the rapid transit line and green boulevard this year.

The Krishnan Team

Holly Hirshfield & Alan Peterson

"Our initial consultation was one of the most memorable discussions we’ve had with someone in the business. She demonstrated through examples how creative, solutions-oriented and innovative her approach was; notably how her team adapted to the covid-19 environment through novel and personal marketing and attention to detail via virtual experiences. Other Realtors offered us a lower rate but we believe we got the quality and caliber we paid for."
N.O., Seller
"Ruth is a down-to-earth, friendly pit bull who represented us well and never let her guard down. She prepared us, protected us, and positioned us for what could not have been a more successful sale."
J.R., Seller
"In this very tough market, she got my family into a fantastic home. I was getting ready to walk away from the SF market altogether, because I just didn't think we could find what we wanted in a home at a price we could pay. Ruth is an absolute pro and helped us get the house we wanted. Ruth is a master real estate agent and the one you want in San Francisco."
H.H & A.P., Buyer
"In such a competitive market we needed an edge to get the home we wanted and we found that with Ruth and her team. She is down to earth, very personable and a master negotiator. She is honest, understanding, and not just out to make the sale."
R.M., Buyer
"Ruth was quick to assess our needs, the property needs, and the San Francisco market needs. She considered the property thoughtfully as she made recommendations for any renovations or work required. Her experience and knowledge as an interior designer is an asset. She creatively played with the space to increase its marketability and our home was beautifully displayed. We were pleased with the amount of offers and felt that Ruth's knowledge attributed to our success."
N.S., Seller
