Hidden on Russian Hill is Macondray Lane, a a very narrow walkway that span two blocks between Union and Green and Leavenworth and Taylor streets. You have probably walked or driven by without even noticing it. It's not even accessible via car or bike, and if you would like to walk it via Taylor Street, you'll have to climb a couple flights of wooden stairs. It's rich with foliage and to be frank, you don't feel like you're in the middle of a major metropolitan area at all. As expected, it's a real rarity for a piece of Macondray Lane to come onto the market. Here now, 14 Macondray Lane, a 3-bed, 4-bath, 2,588 square foot abode with an asking price of $3,648,000, or $1,410 per square foot. The home is one of two contemporary abodes on the block.
