Throbbing Prose

Some days, all it takes is a little realtor prose to make our day. Fully erect excerpts from the loins of Mark Allan Levinson's copy writer:

A sophisticated home of contemporary elegance awaits at this prime Russian Hill cul-de-sac. Panoramic views... gated garden courtyard introduces the home's wonderful sense of privacy and prestige... well-proportioned living and dining rooms. From the dining room, Nob Hill views above the Mark Hopkins Hotel are a reminder of this home's echelon. Art collectors will already begin to envision their most prized pieces... a home of achievement, sophistication, and quietude... views range above the cul-de-sac towards Nob Hill hotels and famous skyscrapers... media-ready with a pull-down screen... and bidet. ��Ascending to the top floor of the home...The penthouse room will inspire the grandest, most impressive parties, or simple private cinematic seclusion with its theater-ready technology

For $6.5 million they could have put in a graceful yet exclusive elevator... full-on floorplan PDF's waiting for your intimate inspection. Alas, no interior photography to stroke your imagination. The cooler heads prevail at the Russian Hill Neighbors website telling us the house was built for Norman Livermore by architect Charles Whittlesey, part of a group in the Pueblo/Misson style around 1912.
