It's the kind of staircase that you tend to think you'll always be walking gingerly on, but hey — who knows what iPod wonders await you on the next floor? If anything makes this 3-bed, 2.5 bath house on Telegraph Hill, it's the glass staircase, but there's a little more too: a penthouse ("glass-enclosed"), that panoramic view, and an elevator serving four floors. The property's really just one big house, but it's considered two units by the city, "hence the second kitchen." Asking price is $2,995,000.
