We're going to have to agree with the listing that is this a "rarely available, magazine quality, panoramic view penthouse" in Nob Hill but feel obligated to tell you (because we went to its open house a few months back) that you have to go up several million steps before you reach its front door. Avoid this abode in the sky if you have bad knees or buy a lot of groceries at once (it's a fifth floor walkup). Buy this 3-bed, 2-bath, 1,410 square foot condo for $1,149,000 if you want very strong calves. That said, once inside the hike is worth it. The obvious appeal are the views, which include the Transamerica building, the Bay Bridge, Coit Tower, and Grace Cathedral. Another property highlight is the impressive kitchen/dining space and the big and private roof deck right off the dining area. Monthly HOA dues are $1,109 and there's 2-car parking in the garage if you want to shell out $340 for leased parking.
