You’ll feel on top of the world in this winsome Russian Hill retreat. Built in 1924, the Spanish-style building welcomes residents with old-world charm. There is no stuffy common space here; instead, you’ll find a sunny open atrium with lush greenery and classic architectural details.

The 1bd/1ba condo’s hillside location offers the convenience of first floor living with penthouse perks. You get to enjoy stunning views of the city, bay, and Coit tower from a large, private balcony – without ever waiting for the elevator.

Its bright and airy floor plan flows easily from door to deck, thanks to thoughtful and extensive renovations. Custom French doors open wide for indoor/outdoor living. Eastern exposure makes morning coffee an absolute delight, as do visits from the famous parrots of Telegraph Hill.

With over 1100 square feet there is plenty of room to add a desk so that you can work from home with ease and style.

Smart lighting and the updated kitchen’s gas range and stainless-steel appliances accentuate original design elements like the decorative fireplace, coved ceilings, and hardwood floors. The plaster ceiling medallions, corbels, and archway are all period pieces modeled from San Francisco’s oldest Victorians, created and restored after the homes were torn down.

Herringbone subway tile makes a sophisticated statement in the ensuite, framing a Japanese soaking tub and walk-in shower with marble floor. The custom-built vanity adds elegance and functionality to this thoughtfully remodeled space. There is plenty of storage, including two closets – one walk-in closet, custom-built for easy wardrobe organization including the washer/dryer. The spacious bedroom is a welcome space to retire at the end of the day.

About the Neighborhood



If you like stunning views, charming thoroughfares, and the feeling of being tucked away but still central to everything, Russian Hill is the place for you. One of San Francisco’s original “Seven Hills”, the area is home to some of the city’s most iconic sights and sounds: Lombard Street’s eight-turn block, a Diego Rivera fresco, and the cable cars which crest the neighborhood’s hills. Commercial stretches along Polk and Hyde Street are home to a diverse selection of shops, cafes, and bars. Have a coffee at Saint Frank and satisfy your sweet tooth at the original Swenson’s. Enjoy a farm-to-table meal at Seven Hills, the French cuisine of La Folie or Elephant Sushi. Grab an Italian sandwich at Molinari’s, a salad at Blue Ban, or try one of Tony’s Pizza’s award-winning pies. Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Safeway, and several local markets are nearby. It’s easy to explore other parts of the city as well – North Beach, Cow Hollow, and the Marina are all within walking distance. Public transit is easy and reliable.

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
