The birthplace of the Beat Movement, North Beach has a special vibration to it, emblemized by rows of famous cafes, live music bars, and the wafting scent of fresh-baked focaccia. Moments away from this pulsing heartbeat, Pfeiffer St. serves as the perfect counterbalance: tree-lined and tucked away, dotted with colorful, well-maintained homes. If you keep the windows open and the breeze hits just right, you can hear the muted barks of Pier 39’s sea lion populace.

Natural light and views abound in this charming 2bd/1ba Edwardian condo. Built in 1907, it speaks to bygone eras with generous rooms and character-rich design elements, thoughtfully updated for modern living.  Updated oak floors throughout look like they’ve always been there, and an updated ductless HVAC system and AC allow for custom 3-zone temperature control, complemented by the draft-blocking abilities of Marvin double pane windows.

It’s easy to get comfortable here. Enjoy peeks at the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay from your couch, take a relaxing soak in the extra-large tub, and enjoy the tree-shrouded windows in the kitchen and bedrooms. The back bedroom can easily serve as an inspiring workspace, warmed by original built-ins. Large windows overlook the recently re-done paver alley, surrounded by vivid greenery. Perfect for everyday or entertaining, the open plan eat-in kitchen allows plenty of space to cook, mingle, savor a delicious meal, or linger with your morning coffee in the breakfast nook. Exterior stairs connect to the home’s most jaw dropping highlight – a spacious rooftop deck with the kind of views you won’t quite believe until you see them. Unobstructed, panoramic, so close you can almost touch them views of the Bay include the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin, and Alcatraz. The shared space is set up for lounging, BBQ, gardening, or hosting, and offers an experience like no other for Fleet Week and Fourth of July fireworks.

Shared side-by-side washer/dryer in garage, along with exclusive-use storage closet.

About the Neighborhood



Popular amongst tourists yet (deeply) beloved by locals, North Beach always manages to hit just the right note, whether it’s Italian folk music bursting from one its many trattorias and cafes, live rock and blues on Grant St., or whispers of the Beat movement (best heard from inside the iconic City Lights bookstore). It’s a neighborhood steeped in history and full of new life. Landmarks like Fisherman’s Wharf, Embarcadero, Washington Square Park, Ghiradelli Square, and Hotel Boheme mingle alongside vibrant nightlife, specialty shops, and events like Art in the Alley. There are plenty of spaces to relax and unwind, and even more in which to stumble on the delightfully unexpected.

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
