There’s more than one reason people keep coming back to San Francisco, and you can see them all from this sundrenched North Beach view condo. In fact, most of them are right outside your door. You can hop on a cable car, walk to Fisherman’s Wharf and Ghirardelli Square, pop down the street for an espresso at the legendary Caffe Greco, and then pop right back home.

Huge skylights and walls of windows flood the interior with natural light, providing crystal clear lookouts to every city vista, skyline, and landmark – maximized by a thoughtful two-level layout and private rooftop terrace. Open social spaces on the main level connect directly to the roof for seamless entertaining, adapting easily to any type of gathering or everyday living style. Enjoy long meals in the dining area, quick bites or homework marathons at the breakfast bar, and endless nights in front of the  fireplace. A window-front nook easily serves as an office, library, or gaming station. Enjoy inspired sunsets and inspiring cocktails from the spacious rooftop, where pano views include Grace Cathedral, Salesforce Tower, and Coit Tower. You’ll find the guest bedroom on the main level as well, giving overnighters or night owls their own sense of space, along with a full bath with tub and hall closet.

The primary bedroom suite occupies the entire lower level – a bright, airy retreat with the best of North Beach as its backdrop and a sitting area from which to take in all the sights and scenes. Getting dressed for everyday or events (or relearning what it means to wear pants) is a true joy in the massive dressing area: wall-to-wall mirrored closets, double vanities, built-in vanity, and a newly updated full bath with tub. A large laundry room with side-by-side washer/dryer and built-in shelving is conveniently located adjacent.

Hardwood floors throughout; updated carpet on stairs and in upstairs bedroom. Charming central courtyard. One-car garage parking.

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 caffes, 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, Ghirardelli Square, and Hotel Boheme mingle alongside vibrant nightlife, specialty shops, and events like Art in the Alley and the Beach Blanket Babylon musical revue. There are plenty of spaces to find your Zen 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
